Our Favourite Brides

Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly’s gown was designed by Helen Rose, who had dressed her in films such as High Society and The Swan. Unsurprisingly it was the most expensive dress that she had ever made.

The gown consisted of a rounded collar, full skirt of ivory peau de soie, and a fitted bodice made from Brussels lace embroidered with seed pearls. The lace was over a century old and had flower designs in it. 25 yards of silk taffeta and 100 yards of silk net were used in the construction of the dress.

Under her wedding gown, Grace's petticoats had tiny blue satin bows.

Kate Moss

Returns to her own particular style with this John Galliano, 30’s inspired, bias cut, cream coloured with sheer skirt, adorned with golden sequins and pearls into leaf shaped designs running to the hem. The bride also wore Manolo shoes with a blue lining.

Jacqueline Bouvier

Jacqueline Bouvier, chose a voluminous ivory silk taffeta gown by the designer Ann Lowe when she married John F. Kennedy in 1953. A portrait neckline and wide, embellished skirt emphasized Jackie’s small waist, and an heirloom lace veil, which originally belonged to her grandmother, completed the super-romantic ensemble.

Liz Taylor

In 1950, Liz Taylor took her first trip (of seven) down the aisle, marrying hotel heir Conrad “Nicky” Hilton in a Hollywood ceremony. Her silk, basque-waisted gown cost a then-staggering $1500 (almost $14000 in today’s dollars) to make and was a gift from her studio, MGM.

Carrie Bradshaw

In what we have come to know as classic Vivienne Westwood design, in champagne silk, puff-ball style with built-in corset. The fact that Carrie was left waiting at the altar might put some off!

Pricilla Presley

In all honesty – this is in for Elvis as much as it is for Priscilla! Priscilla reportedly designed her flowing pearl-trimmed silk-chiffon gown herself.

Millie Mackintosh
Millie Mackintosh did look lovely in her vintage inspired Temperly gown. It’s Bluebell from their Iris collection. Naturally as one would expect from any self respecting Made In Chelsea persona – the dress was teamed with Christian Louboutins and the wedding venue – Babington House – of course.

But Millie’s not that different from others – and her experience was so very similar to many of the brides that we see and is reported as saying:

"My idea of what I wanted was so different from what I tried on. It was so strange. You don’t know what will suit you until you try it on."
