This one might be one of the most iconic wedding dresses of all time. The beautiful gown, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, Princess Diana wore in 1981 for her wedding to Charles, Prince of Wales, at St. Paul's Cathedral. It is said that the dress now will be worth around £110,000. It was made from an ivory silk taffeta and hand-woven antique lace and had a 25-foot train. The gown was decorated with more than 10,000 pearls and sequins, which were sewn with gold thread. The dress is a great fit for a princess.

The delicate lace was produced by the Royal School of Needlework. It is said that the dress was inspired by Victorian corsetry. The stunning gown is definitely worthy of the future Queen.

3. Kim Kardashian

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star married to a rapper Kanye West in 2014. She wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture dress designed by her friend Riccardo Tisci. The gown's estimated price is around $500,000. Her daughter, North, wore a mini matching handmade dress. It’s safe to say that it was probably a little bit cheaper. Kim’s dress featured full-length lace sleeves and a fishtail bottom. It perfectly accentuated the star’s hourglass figure.

2. Victoria Swarovski

Victoria Swarovski married property investor Werner Mürz. The 23-year-old is a heir to the Swarovski crystal empire, so it’s not surprising that dress was decorated with no less than half a million crystals. The gown reportedly cost $885,710 and weighed 101 pounds. Victoria's stunning look also featured a 19-foot train and a 26-foot delicately lace-edged veil. Well, if your family’s empire is worth billions, we guess you can justify spending that much money on a crystal encrusted wedding dress, which you’d probably wear only once.

 1. Angelababy

Angelababy (real name - Angela Yeung) is a Chinese actress, singer, and model. She wedded an actor Huang Xiaoming in an extravagant ceremony that cost an incredible sum of $31 million. The exact cost of her custom Dior gown is unknown, but it is said that it took five months to create it. The petite model almost drowned under the staggering 165 feet of tulle. The rest of the dress consisted of 115 feet of ivory satin organza with one hundred hand-cut Chantilly lace rose bouquets. The look was completed with a billowing 10-foot train. Angelababy finished her fairy tail image with a sparkling tiara.
