Yes, this may be Kim Kardashian's second appearance on our list. Despite strongly prefering her iconic look in a Vera Wang dress during her wedding to rap megastar Kanye West, we can't forget her first wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries.

Kaley Cuoco had already been married before in a pink gown, but that marriage wasn't meant to be and the couple split up soon after. The Big Bang Theory actress tied the know in a Reem Acra gown cape for her Southern California Wedding to Karl Cook.

On the day that she tied the knot with James Matthews, Pippa appeared at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire, England, sporting a beautiful dress with a high neck and an ivory gown.
The exquisite lace only added to the striking silhouette of the gown, making Pippa stand out from the crowd even more on her special day.

Britney Spears shocked us all when she partnered with one of her back-up dancers, Kevin Federline. But what many may not know is that she was the one who actually proposed!

I asked him first… He said no because he didn't think it was the right way to do it." One week later, Kevin bought Britney a ring and soon proposed.
Snooki – also known as Nicole Polizzi – married her husband in front of 500 guests. She said about her special day, "I was so nervous, I had the worst jitters, and I just had to have a little drink. I was like, 'Where's my alcohol? I need my nerves to calm down."

Seeing as both Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder had key roles in films/TV shows focused around vampires, it makes sense that they were always meant to be together. Nikki starred in the Twilight series while Somerhalder played Damon Salvatore in The Vampire Diaries.

It was only a few years ago that Celine Dion endured the tremendous pain of losing her beloved husband, Rene Angelil. They had been together for most of Celine's life. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that they held a massive wedding outside Montreal's Notre-Dame Basilica back in 1994.
Celine also wore a beautiful headpiece that contained 2,000 Austrian crystals, along with a striking 20-foot train, designed by Mirella and Steve Gentile.
This may be one of the oldest dresses on our list, as it was over half a century ago since Priscilla married Elvis Presley. It's only befitting that the King of Rock 'n Roll took his partner all the way to Las Vegas and got married on May 1, 1967.
They held their ceremony at the Aladdin Hotel, which is where they recited their vows. As it turns out, Priscilla designed her own dress! Now isn't that impressive?! Her dress was made with silk-chiffon and adorned in seed pearls.
Portia de Rossi

While Mariah Carey has had a few relationships since tying the knot with Tommy Mottola back in 1993, we still wanted to take a look back at the notable dress she wore.

Everyone who is a fan is well aware of the rollercoaster ride that Jay-Z and Beyonce have experienced over the past decade. When they got married back in 2008, Queen B wanted to keep her wedding photos as secret as she could.
The reason for not wanting to publish her photos as because she wasn't so thrilled about her dress, which her mother designed. But, when the couple renewed their vows, she wore a very different dress, designed by the amazing Galia Lahav.
The bride, who's known for her incredible sense of style, kept her edge with a custom white and pink wedding gown by Dior during her wedding to Gavin Rossdale. The couple has since divorced, but her ex-husband says: "We had 20 years together and that in itself is pretty incredible."

For Solange's big day she wore not one, but two caped wedding ensembles-including a jumpsuit! The singer joined in marriage with music video director Alan Ferguson in New Orleans in 2014. Arriving at the ceremony by bicycle, she wore an ivory column-style gown with a cape that swept the floor.

Her Chanel dress is a ballerina-style mini gown that she had worn previously on the red carpet.
When it comes to classic, it's difficult to beat the wedding dress Grace Kelly donned when she married Monaco's Prince back in 1956. Helen Rose designed the high-necked, long-sleeve gown.
