Well, I am off to Illinois for a few days for my cousin's wedding.
I thought in celebration, I would leave you with five of the most iconic wedding gowns in recent history.
I hope you enjoy them!
Audrey Hepburn, 1952
Hollywood sweetheart Audrey Hepburn's gown for her first wedding epitomized the 1950s charm. It is one of the most replicated wedding gowns of all time.
Jackie Kennedy, 1953
America's future first lady was a newspaper reporter when she wed Jack Kennedy. Her gown featured 50 yards of ivory silk taffeta and took two months to make.
Grace Kelly, 1956
To become a royal, Grace Kelly’s wedding dress features 100 yards of silk net and 15 yards of silk taffeta. Helen Rose designed the wedding dress with round collar, fitted bodice, and full skirt, which was stitched using old-century lace and peau de soei fabric.
Elizabeth Taylor, 1958
By her fourth wedding, La Liz proved you don't need to wear white to be a bride. This olive green silk dress dons a hood and sheer sleeves. But, unfortunately, I don't think her fashion-forward attire was the topic of many gossip columns when the wedding occurred. Eddie Fisher, the groom, had just left his wife, America's Sweetheart, Debbie Reynolds for the sultry, violet-eyed Hollywood diva.
Mia Farrow, 1966
She was 21. He was 50. Never one to follow convention, Mia Farrow chose a two-piece ensemble for her first wedding to the famous crooner, Frank Sinatra.
Princess Diana, 1981
Diana's wedding dress was a delicious fairytale dream-come-true puff ball. The gown, which featured 10,000 pearls and a 25-foot train, delighted billions of people at a time when dreams really didn't seem to come true. Unfortunately, we know Diana's marriage was anything but a dream.
What do you think of these gowns? Which one was your favorite?
