Choosing that perfect wedding dress can be difficult. Over the years there have been a few daring celeb brides who have set the trend with their wedding dresses. From Gwen Stefani donning a soft pink gown to Elizabeth Taylor opting for dull mustard. Not to forget Princess Diana who brought puffy shoulders into fashion and the little bit crazy Avril Lavigne strutting down the isle in a black gown. I hope these celeb wedding dresses will inspire you to choose something daring and perhaps even opt for a colour other than white. Take a look below.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles in July 1981.
The train of the dress was almost 8m long and the dress had 10 000 pearls hand stitched onto the detailed lace.
In 1998 Cindy Crawford had heads turning during her barefoot wedding in a short slipdress. She married Rande Gerber and 16yrs later they are still happily married.
In August 2009 Alyssa Milano stepped out in a stunning Vera Wang dress.
In 2011 she had her first child and named him Milo.
Musician Avril Lavigne and muso Chad Kroeger married in July last year and nothing was conventional about their 3 day wedding ceremony. I think a black wedding dress is a bit much!!
In 2012 Anne Hathaway chose a light pink Valentino gown for her wedding day.
If yellow is your thing, perhaps you can go back to 1964 when Elizabeth Taylor married her co-star from "Cleopatra" Richard Burton. Hhmmm...okay....
We know Gwen Stefani is a real fashionista but in 2002 she surprised everyone in her jaw dropping wedding gown. Stunning!
Back in 1997 Jada Pinkett married Will Smith and opted for a crushed velvet body hugging gown. Sleek and sexy.
Jessica Biel broke the hearts of ladies the world over when she married Justin Timberlake in 2012. She too opted for a soft pink gown.
In 2011 Kate Moss opted for a vintage inspired lace dress. She looked like a fairy.
Another Kate who stole our hearts in 2011 and stirred our imaginations even to the extent that we started believing in real life happy endings; was Kate Middleton. She married Prince William in the most beautiful ceremony one could dream of. *sigh
Still in 2011 it seems that pink dresses kept making their appearance. For Reese Whiterspoon's 2nd wedding she chose this soft pale pink wedding gown. The term "blushing bride" sure comes to mind.
Going back in time to 1998 - Sharon Stone chose a pink Vera Wang gown with a crown by the way.
Back in 1992 the happy presidential couple tied the knot. Michelle Obama was a classic bride and Barack couldn't stop looking at her.
Unheard of for 1997, Sarah-Jessica Parker opted to break tradition on her wedding day. She chose a black gown and could not have looked happier.
And no wedding gown list will be complete without the lovely Victoria Beckham. According to various online sites her dress is responsible for the strapless wedding gown craze. In 1999 she married footballer David Beckham.
I hope these gowns have inspired you to be creative and true to yourself when picking your wedding gown.
