Ranked: The Top Celebrity Wedding Dresses Of 2018
2018 was filled with many lavish celebrity weddings this year, which means that there were quite a few highly-anticipated bridal looks to go alongside them. Celebrities have a tendency to think outside the box when it comes to their wedding gown and often opt for the non-traditional route, so this year we saw everything from capes, to rompers to pink ruffles in the bridal department. Follow along as we rank our favorite wedding gowns from 2018!
15. Mandy Moore
Mandy Moore stepped out to marry the Dawes lead singer Taylor Goldsmith in a backyard, private ceremony this past November. Rather than a traditional white wedding gown, Moore opted for something totally different and walked down the aisle wearing bubblegum pink. While we think that Moore’s tall, slender figure works well with the tier-detailing of this dress, we’re not sure we love this style dress in combination with the color pink. It simply felt a little too foofy than classic. Nevertheless, Moore absolutely dazzled when she walked down the aisle and was smiling from ear to ear, which is the most important of all!
14. Kaley Cuoco
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco took a romp down the aisle this year to marry Karl Cook where she wore a lace Reem Acra dress and a matching cape. The star channeled old Hollywood glamour with the 1920’s-inspired bridal look, which E! News confirmed was custom designed and took a shocking 400 hours to construct. While we love the idea of the cape, it seemed a little overwhelming with all the beading and detail already happening on the actual dress.
13. Denise Richards
Real Housewives star Denise Richards married Aaron Phypers in a last minute September ceremony in Malibu this year. For the intimate beach ceremony, Richards wore a romper dress designed by Mark Zunino. “24 hours to make a wedding dress? NO PROBLEM!!” Zunino captioned a photo of himself and Richards wearing the minidress with intricate embroidery and a sheer skirt. Fans weren’t shy to voice their opinions about the untraditional wedding dress, but Denise defended her look by explaining, “It’s a sexy dress and it’s fun. It was appropriate because we got married in Malibu overlooking the ocean. I’m a beachy girl. I like that it was short and it wasn’t a gown.”
12. Felicity Jones
British actress Felicity Jones married director Charles Guard this year in an elegant, private ceremony at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, England. Jones wore a custom-made Erdem couture gown that featured a high-neckline, dainty buttons trailing the bodice and sheer detailing. While a highly modest and vintage-inspired dress like this wouldn’t suit everyone, we think it was quite fitting for the refined wedding affair and worked well on Jones.
11. Rose Leslie
Game of Thrones stars Rose Leslie and Kit Harrington married this past June in a Scottish wedding affair to remember! Leslie opted for a vintage-inspired Ellie Saab dress that featured long, sheer sleeves, a sweetheart neckline, and a traditional fit-and-flare cut. Leslie’s wore her hair in soft waves alongside a flower crown on her head and donned a long, classic veil covering her face as she walked into the church.
10. Kaitlynn Carter Jenner
Kaitlynn Carter wed The Hills alum, Brodie Jenner, this past year in an Indonesian wedding affair. Her bridal look was quite whimsical and simple for the Bali wedding and featured long sleeves, a key-hole neckline, and embroidery along the chest. The dress was purchased from the designer Bo and Luca, who have a distinctive bohemian, vintage style. “I loved how conservative the ceremony dress appeared in the front, but that it had an open back which made it a little more fun. I loved the silhouette and especially loved how the veil tied it all together,” Kaitlynn dished about the dress on her blog.
9. Kelly Rizzo
Full House star Bob Saget and longtime girlfriend Kelly Rizzo tied the knot this past year in a late October ceremony. Rizzo’s lace-covered dress was designed by Pronovias and featured sheer detailing and long sleeves. The dress undoubtedly looked stunning on Rizzo, but it was simply a little too skin-baring to be one of our absolute favorites for the year of 2018!
8. Sabrina Bryan
Cheetah Girls alum Sabrina Bryan married her longtime boyfriend Jordan Lundberg in a Las Vegas ceremony this past October. Bryan initially searched for a wedding dress while filming an episode of Say Yes to the Dress, but knew she wanted to turn to her favorite designer Hayley Paige after trying on a few options. Bryan worked directly with Hayley Paige to design a custom wedding gown and the design even incorporated the fabric of her mother’s wedding gown into the design. “It’s glitzy and dramatic and a once in a lifetime dress,” Bryan said of her fairytale bridal look.
7. Karlie Kloss
Model Karlie Kloss married boyfriend Joshua Kushner this past October in true high-fashion, supermodel style. Kloss opted for a custom Dior dress that featured a lace illusion-style V-neckline and matching sheer long sleeves. The lace of the dress was quite dainty which worked well with the delicate buttons trailing the back of the dress. The high-fashion bridal moment was definitely a wedding dress to remember!
6. Danielle Fishel
Former Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel married producer Jensen Karp this past November. Fishel donned a short sleeve dress with an illusion neckline and a subtle trumpet-style skirt. Her veil featured floral embroidery clustered near the ends and the entire dress was every bit as beautiful as the stunning sunset background of their wedding photoshoot.
5. Priyanka Chopra
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra had a lavish 5-day wedding affair to remember and Priyanka has officially released photos of her stunning wedding dress! The Ralph Lauren number featured an illusion neckline and dainty buttons trailing along the front as well as a striking sheer skirt that showed off her hourglass figure. Her veil trailed magically behind her and is reported to have been 75 feet long!
4. Chiara Ferragni
Italian blogger Chiara Ferragni married Fedez is a glitzy Sicily wedding affair. Unsurprisingly, the mega fashion blogger’s dress was one of the most highly anticipated wedding dresses of the year and she did not disappoint. Ferragni donned an haute couture Dior dress designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. The dress itself required 400 meters of fabric and more than 1,600 hours of work to complete. The look featured a sheer crochet bodice and a voluminous tulle skirt.
3. Meghan Markle
There couldn’t be a 2018 wedding dress roundup without giving a shoutout to Meghan Markle’s regal look for her May wedding to Prince Harry. Her wedding look was one of the most anticipated of all time and garnered quite a few mixed reviews. We personally love the simplicity and classic feel of the bateau-neckline gown designed by Givenchy.
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow stunned when she walked down the aisle to marry Brad Falchuk in a star-studded Hamptons wedding affair. Paltrow donned a stunning lace Valentino dress with a swiss dot pattern throughout. The dress featured a fitted bodice and a traditional cathedral-length veil which she pinned into her hair that was styled in natural, loose waves.
1. Princess Eugenie
Of all the wedding dresses we’ve seen in 2018, our absolute favorite had to be the regal dress worn by Princess Eugenie when she married longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank. Her royal wedding look was designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos which featured a slight off-the-shoulder neckline and a Princess-style shape. We especially love the fact that Eugenie designed the dress to have a low back and show off a surgery scar on her back as a move of empowerment.
