For your wedding gown take inspiration from one of these iconic bridesFor your wedding gown take inspiration from one of these iconic brides

Kate Middleton

The latest iconic bride, with her natural beauty and grace that make her fit to be a princess, Kate Middleton was the epitome of beauty on her spring wedding day in 2011. With a sweetheart neckline and lace overlay, the full skirt of her wedding dress gave her the perfect feminine silhouette. The way she so elegantly glided through the Abbey and her serene, elegant demeanour make her an iconic bride to inspire brides for years to come.

Diana, Princess of Wales

The fairy tale bride, Princess Diana shone with beauty and decadence on her wedding day. The full, billowing dress she wore to marry Prince Charles was a silk taffeta gown, almost a fantasy wedding dress with its 25 foot train. She set the standard for aspiring fairy tale brides, donning a larger than life gown and veil.

Elizabeth Taylor

An iconic symbol of glamour and beauty, Elizabeth Taylor is also known for her marriages; of which there were eight, to seven different men. Each wedding was unique and she transformed herself into a different bride each time; from a classic fairy tale white gown to a hooded green silk dress, and an extravagant floral headpiece thrown in for good measure.

Audrey Hepburn

This brunette beauty was a film and fashion icon, but it was her wedding that made her even more iconic. For her wedding to Mel Ferrer she wore a simple floral garland in her hair and a sophisticated yet very feminine dress with full skirt and gloves; the epitome of femininity. She maintained this elegance in her second marriage, to Andrea Dotti, where she wore a pink wool dress with matching hooded scarf.

Katie Price

Iconic because, well, no one will forget her wedding dress in a flash! The pink, full-skirted, diamante bustier dress she wore to marry singer Peter Andre created ripples of attention in the press. But no one expected anything less from the extravagant and bold celeb. The towering pink tiara framed her extremely made-up face and supported a ridiculously long veil (which was of course pink). Her Barbie inspired wedding made her an iconic bride never to be forgotten.

Priscilla Presley

The designer of her own wedding dress, Priscilla was the essence of ‘60s style on her wedding day to Elvis Presley in 1967. With jet black, bouffant hair and gravity defying veil she indeed made a bold statement in the style stakes. The floor length, embroidered dress and rhinestone tiara – not to mention the classic ‘60s dark eye make-up – make her an unforgettable groovy bride.

Bianca Jagger

Iconic for her choice of alternative wedding dress, Bianca Jagger will always be remembered for wearing a skirt suit, minus the blouse, making her cleavage create quite a statement on her wedding day to Mick Jagger. Still one with tradition, the rock and roll bride wore a veil, attached to a classic ‘70s hat. Perhaps an encouragement for brides tempted to break with tradition, Bianca Jagger effortlessly pulled off her alternative wedding day look.

Grace Kelly

On her wedding day to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956, film star Grace Kelly wore a waist-cinching column dress with long veil, giving her a respectful and elegant demeanour in her religious and royal wedding. The taffeta and tulle gown emphasised her tiny waist, while her delicate arms were enveloped in lace and her tiara signifying her transformation into a princess.

Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Already a style queen, Jackie Kennedy wore a simple yet elegant gown to marry John F Kennedy. The off-the-shoulder sleeves and dainty gloves, combined with a simple pearl necklace and long veil, gave her a classic, timeless look. The glamorous first lady, known for her style and grace, inspired women not only for their weddings but in general fashion.

Mia Farrow

With elfin features and dainty ways, Mia Farrow is remembered for being a delicate and feminine bride. On her tiny frame she wore a simple yet elegant double breasted skirt suit and sported a cropped blonde ‘do, creating an innocent and girl-like demeanour on her wedding day to Frank Sinatra in 1966. Perhaps iconic for her young age when she wed (she was just 21 and Sinatra was 50) but overall it was her ‘60s glamour and virginal attributes that we remember. Read more on

    The Shocking Reason You May Be Tired

    So my doctor prescribed two medications, including a synthetic thyroid hormone to replace what my body was having trouble making. It turns out that my story is actually quite common, especially since the risk for thyroid disorders tends to increase as you get older-and women are up to eight times more likely than men to develop one. I was also surprised to learn that having an underactive thyroid is the most common problem, but it can be tricky to diagnose. The gold standard for measuring …
