Jacqueline Bouvier & John F. Kennedy (1953)
800 people attended the wedding ceremonyof Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy, who married in Newport, Rhode Island in 1953. Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy wore an Ann Lowe wedding dress on this special day.
Audrey Hepburn & Mel Ferrer (1954)
Hepburn once said she wanted to be "really married" if she was going to get married. And after an interesting official ceremony in Switzerland, the star was "really married" for 14 years.
Marilyn Monroe & Joe DiMaggio (1954)
Everyone may have a question about the couple's compatibility, but those who see them always say their attraction is undeniable. Although the bride is a Hollywood star and the future Hall-of-Famer, the two said yes to each other in 1954 in San Francisco City Hall.
Grace Kelly & Prince Rainier (1956)
Does the wedding dress look familiar to you? You are looking at the dress that designer Sarah Burton's was inspired by when designing Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge's gown. Kelly met Prince Rainier of Monaco while part of the US delegation at the Cannes Film Festival. For her wedding, she chose to wear a surprisingly cinematic dress designed by MGM costume designer Helen Rose.

The couple fell in love on the set of the 1961 movie Cleopatra. The production of this movie cost $ 44 million, while the estimated value of Taylor's jewellery collection is approximately $ 100 million!
Bianca Macias & Mick Jagger (1971)
Bianca and Jagger met at a Rolling Stones party. The couple's wedding ceremony was also just like a party! Bianca chose a Saint Laurent dress for the big day.
Lady Diana Spencer & Prince Charles (1981)
750 million people were ready to watch the couple's wedding ceremony. It would be so difficult to pick just one single memory of this ceremony. Diana's wedding dress, tiara… and we can never forget the ring, the 18k oval sapphire, which will eventually be worn on Kate Middleton's finger 30 years later.
Victoria Adams & David Beckham (1999)
The $ 17,000 crown, the $ 100,000 Vera Wang wedding gown and the matching purple reception gowns… everything about this wedding was truly unorthodox. For some, it was definitely very outrageous. But guess who's still married?
Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt (2000)
We all know how this marriage turned out, but whatever happens, the best wedding photos of the time came from this couple. Aniston was dazzling in the Lawrence Steele gown and Pitt in the Hedi Slimane tuxedo.
Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise (2006)
"Yes," Tom Cruise told Katie Holmes in 2006 in the finest part of Italy in his Armani tux. The two chose the Maldives for their honeymoon.

A real prince, Westminster Abbey and a real tiara that almost every young girl dreams of.
Kate Moss & Jamie Hince (2011)

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend (2013)
This couple will always continue to be a couple of our dreams. Of course, so was the wedding that took place in Lake Como in 2013… With three separate Vera Wang wedding gowns, Teigen got married to the love of her life in an Italian ceremony that was completed with a performance by Stevie Wonder.
