10: Jessica Simpson in Carolina Herrera
For her wedding with Eric Johnson, Jessica Simpson teamed up with designer Carolina Herrera to create her custom wedding dress.

A cathedral-length veil completed the exceptional look.
9: Allison Williams in Oscar de la Renta
Allison Williams’ wedding was an unforgettable bridal fashion moment. Combining traditional elegance with modern glamour, her Oscar de la Renta wedding dress stood out with its sheer neckline and its hand-embroidered lace overlay. The classic princess cut topped off with a long chiffon is a classic style for Oscar and we simply adore it!

For her wedding to Francois Pinault, the Lebanese beauty wore a stunning Balenciaga ivory gown with a heavily embroidered v-neck bodice. The couple had a surprise ceremony at City Hall in Paris on Valentine’s Day 2009. Two months later, the couple married for the second time at Venice’s opera house.
7: Kim Kardashian in Givenchy
Tailor-made by Riccardo Tisci, Misses West wore a fairy-tale gown that made our top 10!
Featuring handmade lace work, strategic sheer paneling and a long silk veil, the wow effect remained in the naked back with the belt wrapping her waist.
Well done Kim!
6: Blake Lively in Marchesa
It’s no secret that star Blake Lively has an obsession for Marchesa dresses. It seems that the Gossip Girl found a label that fits her so perfectly that she didn’t spare any of the designer’s dresses for all her appearances, even the wedding dress line! Among her many spotted Marchesa red carpet moments, the one we prefer the most is her look in the extremely airy and elegant one-shoulder wedding gown Marchesa with stunning silver embroidery.
5: Angelina Jolie in Versace
We are huge fans of Angie! She is perfection right up to her wedding dress! She chose a very simple silky white dress from Versace, and had the veil adorned with her children’s multi-colored artworks!
The result is a unique full of color gown that stole all of our hearts!
4: The Duchess of Cambridge in Alexander McQueen
We couldn’t skip this one! The perfect dress for the event of the decade!
Slimmed in the waist and with an everlasting train, the Dutchess brought the sleeves back with this masterpiece! And we owe her huge thanks for it!
The late Alexander McQueen had it tailor-made for her.
3: Kristie Romanos by Atelier Esposa
The successful business woman Kristie Romanos tied the knot in an elegant ivory-colored Silk Mikado wedding gown signed no other than Atelier Esposa. Distinguished by its refined Chantilly lace adorning its neckline and arms and its modern beading added to the main top and bottom parts, the dress opened on the back, embellished by a sophisticated customized chapel train designed with arabesque style.
2: Amal Clooney in Oscar de la Renta
Probably the most envied bride of the century, Amal Alamuddin not only married one the most handsome men of all times, but did it in a fairy-like dress signed Oscar de la Renta. An exquisite mille-feuille of ivory tulle, the wedding dress was executed with fourteen yards of Chantilly lace and elegantly embroidered with beading and crystals. A pure beauty!

One of the mind-blowing out of the ordinary brides of this year was definitely one of the Arab world’s most influential fashion bloggers, Dana Wolley. Dressed by Atelier Esposa, founder of Wayed Vintage’s wedding gown was a pure marvel. The exquisite custom-made creation resembled a rare piece of gem glittering with thousands of gold and silver Swarovski stones, of different color shades and shapes, while the wavy infinite lines and the meters of tulle radiated a royal appearance like no other. The dress was complemented by a customized headpiece made of lightly beaded pieces elegantly and meticulously designed.
