Posh Spice's decision to not wear a 'little Gucci dress' on her wedding day disappointed all 90s girls. The Pop Icon married elite soccer athlete, David Beckham on July 4, 1999 at the Luttrellstown Castle outside of Dublin, Ireland. The future fashion icon and designer chose the classic designer Vera Wang to custom make her wedding dress. The structured strapless champagne colored gown featured a 20 ft chapel train. In her hair, Victoria wore an 18-carat gold crown encrusted with diamonds by jeweler Slim Barrett.
First married in 1950, Elizabeth Taylor wed hotel heir Conrad 'Nicky' Hilton, Jr., at the young age of 18. Her cream colored silk satin gown was a gift by MGM and was custom crafted by costume designer Helen Rose. Rose, consider the grandest designer of Hollywood's Golden age, later designed (arguably) the most iconic wedding dress in history- the Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly. Taylor and Hilton divorced just eight years later and she went on to famously wed seven more times. The gown sold at a London auction in June 2013 for $187,931.

The next day, Hepbrun wore a tea-length, chiffon-sleeved gown by French designer Pierre Balmain for her wedding service in a Protestant Chapel. The couple later divorced in 1968 after having one child, Sean. Hepburn married and divorced once more in her lifetime and shared her distrust with marriage, "I thought a marriage between two good, loving people had to last until one of them died. I can’t tell you how disillusioned I was."

Lowe worked tirelessly to recreate all 11 designs in time. The iconic gown featured a portrait neckline, off the shoulder sleeves, and a voluminous textured skirt that emphasized the bride's slim waist.

Prior to the nuptials, Trump converted to Judaism for her future 'Mr.' As a result, the bride had to adhere to a more conservative bridal gown. Vera Wang, delighted to design a dress that 'wasn't naked,' created a Grace Kelly inspired gown with an illusion neckline, overlay sleeves, and a tiered skirt.
