Weddings are important and memorable events in which two loving people finally become married. Organizing and preparing for a wedding takes a good amount of time and preparation, as things like the wedding and venue and wedding catering have to be prepared well in order to have a great ceremony and reception.
There have been a lot of memorable wedding ceremonies over the years, and some of them were weddings between celebrities and famous figures. These weddings are known for their importance, grand scale, and the overall extravagance of the ceremonies. Here are some of the most iconic celebrity weddings of all time.
Prince William and Kate Middleton (2011)
The most recent big wedding, this was a union between a prince and a commoner. Prince William is the second in line to the British crown, met the future duchess during their schooling days in college. The relationship had its trying times before marriage, but it all culminated into one of the most famous weddings of the century.
Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier (1956)
Perhaps the Original must-watch Royal Wedding, This was the closest the world got to an actual fairy tale wedding. An Academy Award-winning actress, Grace Kelly was one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. During the Cannes Film Festival, she met Prince Rainier of Monaco and the two eventually fell in love. The wedding not only turned Grace Kelly into a princess, it also ensured that Monaco’s royal family would have heirs.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles (1981)
The predecessor to the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, this was perhaps the most iconic wedding of the 1990s. Before getting married, the future princess worked various simple jobs, Prince Charles, meanwhile, was the heir to the British crown. The wedding was broadcast around the world, with over 750 million people watching the iconic celebration. Iconic moments include the beautiful dress and tiara of the Princess of Wales, and her beautiful 18-carat oval sapphire ring (which would be later worn by Kate Middleton.)
Victoria and David Beckham (1999)
Two of the most iconic British people during the 90s and early 2000s, one was known as a member of the iconic female group, the Spice Girls, and one is known as one of the best football players in the world. This was definitely a star-studded match, which culminated into one of the most extravagant weddings of all time. The wedding was known for its extreme amounts of excess, examples of which include the $100,000 wedding gown (designed by Vera Wang) and the $17,000 tiara.
John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Bouvier
Perhaps one of the most iconic couples of the 20th century, this marriage is perhaps the most private on this list. (most of the guests included only close friends and family members) The wedding was known for Jackie O’s beautiful wedding gown that was designed by Ann Lowe, and the intimacy of the event, as opposed to some big-name weddings.
Although these wedding ceremonies are known for their extravagance, simple weddings are fine as well, as it does not matter how big the wedding ceremony will be. All that matters is the union of love between the couple sharing the altar together.
