This Real Housewife of Atlanta was anything but modest when she wed Kroy Biermann in 2011. Zolciak’s $58,000 Baracci dress weighed 32 pounds and was decorated with Swarovski crystals, pearls, beads, and lace. The thread holding it all together was platinum-coated, of course.

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge looked every bit the future Queen of England when she wed Prince William at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011. Her long-sleeved gown, a custom design from of , included hand-cut English lace, French Chantilly lace, and a six-foot train. Her future grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II, loaned her a Cartier halo tiara to hold her veil in place. Two billion people were watching, and none of them were disappointed.

Chelsea Clinton

An icon to a generation of smart, modest girls, Chelsea Clinton once again proved that understated is often best. Clinton kept the details of her 2010 wedding quiet when she married Marc Mezvinsky, not even disclosing who designed her dress until the wedding day. Then, a radiant Clinton blew away friends, family, and critics in a silk organza strapless with a draped tulle bodice and silver embroidered waistband.

The most impressive part of Chan’s wedding dress: its price tag. Even though she married Facebook CEO and billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, Chan kept the dress modest and the price tag low. The $4,700 Claire Pettibone mermaid dress included matte sequins, embroidered lace, a high neckline, and a low back.

In 2011, girl-next-door Reese Witherspoon wed Jim Toth in a custom Monique Lhullier blush-colored dress. With its lace corset bodice and tulle A-line skirt, the only non-traditional element of this gown was its pale pink color. This gorgeous and unexpected color choice proves that both the bride and her dress can be blushing on the big day.

Becoming Sir Paul McCartney’s wife comes with certain perks, including having designer as a stepdaughter. McCartney’s design for her new stepmother was inspired by the gown Wallis Simpson wore when she married the Duke of Windsor in 1937. Shevell’s gown included the delicate buttons and tiny waist of its inspiration, but it was updated with a knee-length hem, v-neck, and pale blue color. The result: a dress fit for the wife of a Beatle and the stepmother of a world-class fashion designer.
