Weddings are notoriously expensive, but for some celebrities, price doesn't seem to matter. From Serena Williams and her incredible $3.23 million dress to Kim Kardashian and her $507,000 Givenchy outfit, these famous brides have spent fortunes when it comes to their wedding dresses. We did our research on the most expensive wedding gowns of all time to see how much they cost...
Tenth place went to Princess Marie Chantal of Greece.
This beautiful bride, whose maiden name is Miller, married Prince Pavlos of Greece in 1995. Wearing a stunning Valentino lace dress for her wedding, she immediately and unconditionally accepted the title of princess. The dress cost almost $208,000, which at current exchange rates is $354,000.
Ninth place went to Amal Clooney.
Amal and George Clooney got married in 2014 in Venice. Speaking about the location of the celebration, Clooney said: "We met in Italy. We have a house here (on Lake Como). This is where we wanted to get married from the beginning." Amal wowed the crowd with an Oscar de la Renta gown, now priced at $385,000.
In eighth place was Chiara Ferragni.
Italian designer and social media star Chiara married rapper Fedez in 2018 in a breathtaking $388k (now $401k) Christian Dior dress. Later, for a party in the spirit of the Coachella music festival, she changed into another Dior creation. This time with symbols and song lines written on the hem.
Seventh place - Colin Rooney.
Not only musicians' brides can afford stunning outfits, but also the bride of a soccer player. Especially a successful one like England's Wayne Rooney. His future wife Colleen in 2008 chose an enchanting princess dress by Marchesa, the price of which today is $437 thousand.
In sixth place is Kate Middleton.
Surprisingly, the Duchess of Cambridge is only sixth in the ranking, despite the fact that her Alexander McQueen dress is still being discussed. Kate married Prince William in 2011 in a chic Victorian-style dress. The price for today is $463 thousand.
Fifth place - Salma Hayek.
The actress married Francois-Henri Pinault, heir to the luxury brand empire Kering, in a secret ceremony in Paris in 2009. A few months later, the couple had already celebrated their marriage with great pomp in Venice, Italy. At the event, Hayek glittered in a Balenciaga gown, which is now worth $485,000.
Fourth place went to Kim Kardashian.
The TV diva wore a spectacular Givenchy dress when she married Kanye West. And her outfit barely made it to the third spot on the list with $507,000 at today's exchange rate. It was designed by Riccardo Tisci for their glamorous Italian wedding. Kardashian appeared before her guests in a tight silhouette dress with lace sleeves and sheer inserts at the waist, complete with an elegant train.
Third place went to Grace Kelly.
Despite the fact that her marriage to Prince Rainier took place in 1956, Grace Kelly ranks third on the list of the most expensive celebrity gowns. Almost $530,000 was spent on her wedding gown. The event was watched by 600 guests and 30 million television viewers. The dress was made of 125-year-old silk taffeta, tulle and Brussels lace.
Second place went to Victoria Swarovski.
Victoria, heiress to the Austrian jewelry empire, married Werner Mürtz in Italy in the presence of 250 guests. The three-day celebration certainly deserved an extravagant gown, and it was provided to the bride by the Filipino designer Michael Cinco. With a name like that, Victoria's dress naturally couldn't do without 500,000 crystals. Its 8-meter-long train also made an impression. As a result, the cost of this outfit is now estimated at $960,000.
First place went to Serena Williams.
One dress wasn't enough for a tennis star like Serena when she married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in 2017. The athlete appeared alternately in three dresses! For the ceremony, she chose, like Kate Middleton, an Alexander McQueen dress. The outfit cost a whopping $3,234,000 and took the first place in the ranking of the most expensive celebrity dresses.
