If you like lavish marriages and like to read about the most popular celebrities (like me, more or less), you might have wondered, sometimes, what some of those extravagant gowns and parties really cost. So when I stumbled over a Brides article with a chart of the most expensive dresses of all time, I decided to report the findings on the blog.
On the other hand, I am not totally sure the prices in the article are reliable: being a blogger, I know how many clothes and goods get offered or lent by brands in order to receive exposure. So I wonder if those gowns were actually paid, or in reality cost a fraction of the stated price.
Whatever the truth is, let’s have a tour of those amazing bridal dresses – and brides.
10. Jessica Biel
9- Catherine Zeta-Jones
8- Elizabeth Taylor
7. Marie-Chantal Miller
6. Mariah Carey
Mariah split up before marrying her fiancé, so she burnt her “would have been” dress in a video. It was a Valentino, said to have cost 250’000 $.
5. Amal Clooney
4. Kate Middleton
3. Kim Kardashian
2. Victoria Swarovsky
Dubbed “the Kim Kardashian of China”, Chinese star Angela Yeung (better known by her stage name, Angelababy) celebrated her wedding alongside 2’000 guests at the Shangai Exhibition Center. She wore Elie Saab haute couture for her pre-wedding celebration, and custom-made Dior for the ceremony. The price of the dress is not known, but the total price of the wedding was 31 million $, so it’s fair to assume hers was the most expensive dress every worn by a bride.
