Celebrity weddings always generate buzz in the media -- especially when there are amazing celebrity wedding dresses involved. With unlimited budgets and lots of glitz and glam to boot, they make for quite a spectacle. The highlight, however, is undoubtedly the bride’s dress. Below is just a selection of amazing celebrity wedding dresses.

1 Grace Kelly

Grace Kelly: a screen siren, style icon, and Princess. Royal weddings are always a spectacle, and this was one for the ages. Grace looked absolutely regal in her long-sleeved silk and lace dress with full skirt. The dress also set the trend for a resurgence in fuller style wedding dresses. This is definitely a testament to her style icon status, not to mention an amazing celebrity wedding dress.

2 Nicole Richie

This Marchesa dress is just magical. Made from more than 100 yards of draped silk organza and tulle petals, this dress was on a scale of epic proportions! I love the contrast of the demure long-sleeved lace bodice against the frou-frou and frivolity of the skirt. Always ahead of the fashion pack, Nicole certainly outdid herself with this number.

3 Princess Diana

Unfortunately, it is obvious that this dress has dated. In a big way. But what makes this dress so amazing is the sheer scale of it all. The dress, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel, featured a 25 foot train and an equally long veil! The dress was made of ivory silk, had a lace set bodice, and featured 10 000 hand sewn pearls and sequins. This dress really did have all the makings of a fairy tale.

4 Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy

Jacqueline Kennedy’s dress required 50 yards of ivory silk taffeta to make. Created by Ann Lowe, the amazing celebrity wedding dress featured a portrait neckline and ball gown skirt with tiny wax flowers weaved in. This dress is timeless and chic (much like the lady herself) and is definitely one of the more iconic dresses of our generation.

5 Katie Holmes

When Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise she wore a beautiful Giorgio Armani gown. The dress was an off-the-shoulder style gown and was adorned with Valenciennes lace and Swarovski crystals. It was opulent, yet still stayed true to Katie’s “girl next door” style.

6 Caroline Bessett

What makes this dress so amazing, apart from its stylishly sleek silhouette, was that it had the power to launch a designer’s career. The dress was designed by Narciso Rodriguez who, while at the time relatively unknown, is now one of the most popular designers around. What I love about this dress is that it perfectly captured Caroline’s understated elegance.

7 Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani sure does know how to make a statement. This John Galliano number, which she wore to her marriage to Gavin Rossdale, gave her traditional wedding dress a modern, punk-rock twist. This silk faille gown was dip-dyed a hot pink colour. It’s quite an eye catching number, and speaks volumes about Stefani’s style status.

8 Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor has been married plenty of times, but this dress is by far my favourite. What I love most about this amazing celebrity wedding dress, which Elizabeth Taylor wore to her first marriage to Richard Burton, is the gorgeous daffodil yellow colour of the dress. Elizabeth looked resplendent in this empire-style chiffon dress. I also love the crown of flowers – lilies of the valley and white hyacinths – that adorned her hair.

9 Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff’s Vera Wang wedding dress was absolutely stunning. The dress was made from hand-painted silk tulle and organza. The mermaid style silhouette of the dress accentuated Hilary’s figure perfectly. It was a contemporary and fresh take on the traditional wedding dress.
