Every wedding is romantic, but some gowns set the tone for a truly special experience. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your own upcoming wedding day or just want to see a few gorgeous celebrity wedding dresses, check out these gorgeous gowns.
From Angelina Jolie’s wedding dress to iconic gowns like Grace Kelly’s and Princess Diana’s, here are a few of the most romantic celebrity wedding dresses, ranging from classic designs to more modern interpretations of the romantic bride.
Angelina Jolie's Wedding Dress by Atelier Versace
Designed by Donatella Versace, the custom-made Atelier Versace gown that Angelina Jolie wore for her wedding to Brad Pitt is truly impressive in its elegant simplicity.
The white silk satin gown may not be stunning on its own, but adding the colorful, embroidered drawings of her children on the silk veil and the elongated train turn it into a touching symbol of love and family.
Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen
An instant classic, Kate Middleton’s wedding dress instantly became iconic and was widely copied, remaining one of the most romantic celebrity wedding dresses ever made. Mixing tradition and modern elements, the wedding gown designed by Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton is truly fit for a princess: from the floral motifs of the bodice to the 110in train. Some of the delicate lace that was used for the gown was later renamed “Kate’s lace”.
Ivanka Trump's Wedding Dress by Vera Wang
After converting to Judaism to marry Jared Kushner in 2009, Ivanka Trump wanted a more covered look for her wedding gown and celebrity designer Vera Wang was happy to oblige. “I seized on the chance to do a dress that wasn't naked,” Wang said of the dress that features delicate lace sleeves.

Grace Kelly's Wedding Dress by Helen Rose
Leaving Hollywood in order to become European royalty, Grace Kelly still turned her “something old” into a memento of her career. Widely considered one of the most romantic celebrity wedding dresses ever made, her gown was created by costume designer Helen Rose. From the silk faille to the rose point lace, the long-sleeved gown inspired countless romantic brides over the years.
Megan Fox's Wedding Dress by Armani Privé
Even though few things were traditional about Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green’s beach wedding, the Armani Privé is a clear example of transitioning romantic elements with a modern feel. The actors were married in Hawaii in 2010, and Fox’s dress in silk chiffon flowed beautifully in the breeze, for a truly romantic moment with a barefoot bride.
Kelly Clarkson's Wedding Dress by Temperley London
Without going for a long train or a delicate veil, Kelly Clarkson also wore one of the most romantic celebrity wedding dresses. Temperley London created a gorgeous long-sleeved lace gown that perfectly suited the bride at her country wedding.
Kim Kardashian's Wedding Dress by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy
The most daring interpretation of romanticism on our list, Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress for her big day with Kanye West has many modern elements, but still manages to come off as romantic. The sheer paneling was perfectly balanced with long sleeves and an intricate lace train.
Jessica Biel 's Wedding Dress by Giambattista Valli
Choosing to wear pink was an inspired choice, and the Giambattista Valli gown that Jessica Biel wore for her wedding to Justin Timberlake certainly deserves its place among the most romantic celebrity wedding dresses. “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses,” Biel explained to Elle magazine.
Milla Jovovich's Wedding Dress by Milla Jovovich
One of the rare brides who designed their own wedding dress, Milla Jovovich decided to go for a bohemian interpretation of romanticism when she married director Paul W. S. Anderson in 2009. Pairing a retro Grecian dress with a traditional veil was an interesting concept, but it’s the flowers in her hair that really took the look to the next level.
Princess Diana's Wedding Dress by David and Elizabeth Emanuel
Definitely one of the most romantic celebrity wedding dresses ever, Lady Diana Spencer’s wedding gown remains iconic to this day.
