6. Catherine Zeta Jones Wedding Dress
Catherine Zeta Jones, one of the prettiest faces of Hollywood did not only have one of the most expensive weddings but also one of the most expensive wedding dresses (too many ‘most’ in one sentence). Her wedding dress had a 6 feet long train. The dress was a V-neck sleeveless dress which she carried with complete grace and elegance. It had diamonds and silk threads on it.
5. Peacock Feather Wedding Dress
When I heard about a dress made out of peacock’s feathers, my first reaction was ‘WOW’ because I am such a lover of the beautiful colors of peacock feathers. But unfortunately I can’t afford this dress even if I sell everything I have! This wedding dress was put forward by Danasha Luxury in 2010. The dress is made out of peacock feathers, some expensive heavy diamonds and gold (18 k gold). The reason for 1.5 million dollars is the fact that everything used in this dress has been hand-picked.
4. Melania Knauss Wedding Dress
When you marry a zillionaire, this is the first advantage you get: an expensive (like insanely expensive) wedding gown. The dress was as heavy as the price tag with it. The bride had to become strong enough by eating well, to bear the weight of the dress. It was made out of 300 feet tulle and some 1500 rhinestones. As the dress was made exclusively for Melania Knauss so the price is not calculated or known accurately.
3. Diamond Wedding Gown
The name seems to be expensive enough, doesn’t it??? This expensive wedding gown comes with almost 150 carats of diamonds studded into the dress using lace. This one is going to be quite a shiny sparkly dress. The designer duo behind this extravaganza is Martin Katz and Renee Strauss. This dress will certainly have a higher resale value so it will be an investment (if sold once). The dress remains unsold, waiting for some millionaire to come and give it the right place which it deserves. The veil that comes with it has rhinestones in it. The dress costs almost $ 12 million.
2. Grace Kelly’s Helen Rose Gown
Designed by Helen Rose, this wedding dress is considered to be the most elegant and influential wedding dress to be ever worn. The dress had adequate details of silk including many yards of silk net, silk taffeta and an antique Brussels rose-point lace. The dress had a fitted bodice. The round collar made it look much more elegant than usual wedding dresses. It has a full flair in the bottom. It has full sleeves and full length skirt. After even almost 50 years of this wedding, the dress is considered to be one of the most expensive ones. The whole wedding attire included the dress, a veil, shoes and a pearl studded prayer book.
1. Princess Diana’s Wedding Dress
This exclusive dress designed by David and Elizabeth Emmanuel tops the list of most expensive as well as most beautiful wedding dress. Well I am not sure if the dress was the most beautiful one or Princess Diana made it look so. The whole dress spoke of sensuality, delicacy and royalty, just representing what Diana was going to be. The whole dress had work of pearls and sequences along with lace frills on the bodice. Another highlight of the dress was its 24 feet long train. No matter how much the fashion moves forward, this dress will never look out-dated. It has got all the details and beauty of a perfect wedding gown. But then again it is a princess dress so obviously with all this to offer it had a hefty price tag. This is the World’s most expensive wedding dress ever made.
