1981: PRINCESS DIANA OF WALES

Let's start with one of the most elegant brides of all time: Princess Diana. At just 20 years old, she married Prince Charles on July 29, 1981, and wore a dress reportedly worth $12,000 (approximately $31,000 in 2016). The gown, designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel, featured a stunning 25-foot train, hand-embroidered details and a whopping 10,000 pearls.

1999: VICTORIA BECKHAM

Leave it to the most stylish Spice Girl to choose a timeless ivory gown for her wedding day. According to Business Insider, fashion designer Victoria Beckham wore a custom Vera Wang dress worth an estimated $100,000 for her July 4, 1999, nuptials to soccer superstar David Beckham.

2010: NICOLE RICHIE

For Nicole Richie's wedding to Joel Madden on December 11, 2010, Richie rocked a breathtaking $20,000 Marchesa gown. It featured 100 yards of silk organza tulle, a high neck cut and a fitted bodice with delicate floral lace details.

2011: KATE MIDDLETON

Naturally, the April 29, 2011, wedding of Kate Middleton (now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, involved an incredibly lavish gown. The bride wore a custom dress by English designer Sarah Burton that reportedly cost $400,000, though this claim has not been confirmed by the Royal Family. With its lace sleeves, a nine-foot train and a stunning veil made of silk tulle, the gown was truly fit for a future queen.

2012: JESSICA BIEL

One of the most unconventional gowns on this list, actress Jessica Biel's bold pink wedding dress looked so pretty for her October 19, 2012, wedding to singer Justin Timberlake. And the color isn't the only exceptional detail: The gown was reportedly priced at an eye-popping $100,000.

2011: KIM KARDASHIAN

For Kim Kardashian's second wedding to basketball player Kris Humphries on August 20, 2011, the reality TV star chose not one, but three Vera Wang dresses, each costing $25,000. That's a $75,000 total for her wedding day wardrobe.

2014: AMAL ALAMUDDIN

When megastar George Clooney married mega-lawyer Amal Alamuddin on September 27, 2014, one of the most talked-about topics was the bride's incredible wedding gown. Designed by Oscar de la Renta, the custom dress reportedly cost $380,000 — and it looked every bit worthy of Hollywood royalty.

For Kardashian's third wedding, this time to Kanye West in 2014, she wore a striking $400,000 Givenchy gown by designer Riccardo Tisci that featured a sheer back, lace sleeves and an incredible train.

2015: ANGELABABY

While the exact cost of Chinese superstar Angelababy's bridal gown isn't public, the fact that her wedding to actor Huang Xiaoming came out to a remarkable $31 million makes it pretty safe to assume the pair spent a pretty penny on the dress. After all, her custom Dior design reportedly took five months to create and featured several dozen Chantilly lace rose bouquets, as well as an extravagant 10-foot train.
