Ever since we saw Kate Hudson in that Vera Wang Bride Wars dress, we’ve been completely obsessed with celebrity brides who wore Vera Wang wedding dresses!

Though, disclaimer, we can’t back the whole ‘You alter yourself to fit Vera’... Even the most renowned wedding dress designers welcome alterations and for anyone who needs to hear it, you don’t need to lose weight for your wedding!

It’s almost impossible to talk about celebrity wedding dresses without tapping into designs by Vera Wang. With a fashion career spanning over three decades, and numerous accolades in the industry, Vera Wang is somewhat a legend in the world of fashion, specifically in bridalwear. 

Having worked at Yves Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren and Vogue, it’s no wonder celebrities can’t get enough of Vera Wang wedding dresses. With celebrities leading the inspiration for the rest of the world, Vera Wang wedding dresses represent the height of luxury for so many brides around the world.

Celebrities Who Wore Iconic Vera Wang Wedding Dresses

From movie stars and singers, to A-list socialites and footballer’s wives, the list of celebrities who have worn Vera Wang wedding dresses is pretty impressive. We’ve decided to take a look back at some of the most iconic celebrity Vera Wang wedding dresses and the famous brides who wore them.

We've got Vera Wang ballgowns, mermaid wedding dresses, simple wedding dresses by Vera and one celebrity bride who wore a whopping three gowns by the renowned designer! Vera Wang's custom celebrity wedding dresses include details such as sewing in pockets for a famous actress and embroidering a British actor's tattoo quote onto his bride's train. Read on for all the details...

Rochelle and Marvin Humes’ wedding made it onto our list of the most iconic weddings in the UK from the past 25 years, and her amazing Vera Wang dress may have had something to do with it…

Rochelle wore a strapless Vera Wang wedding dress which had a elaborately ruffled skirt and small train. She paired the stunning strapless wedding dress with a simple satin belt and a tiered veil with chic lining.  

2. Ariana Grande - Slinky Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Ariana Grande’s simple wedding dress may just be one of our favourite Vera Wang celebrity looks *ever* - and can you blame us? The singer wore a chic and simple column ivory wedding dress paired with an oversized bow veil and her signature high ponytail. We love the corset detail on the bust - corset wedding dresses are so in right now and the bow detail is also so on trend.

3. Sabrina Dhowre - Personalised Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Idris Elba married wife Sabrina Dhowre in a romantic three-day Marrakesh celebration in 2019 and their wedding was featured exclusively by British Vogue - how fancy!

Sabrina wore a custom-made Vera Wang wedding dress which was every inch fitting to the luxurious vibe of the wedding. Speaking to Vogue, Vera said, “Sabrina and I spoke on the phone first, in January, and we immediately had a special connection.” 

Sabrina initially wanted something dramatic and big, but Vera Wang’s more simplistic design won her over. Speaking on the details, Vera told Vogue, “When she asked me to have Idris’ arm tattoo embroidered at the bottom of the train, I knew I was dealing with a very special woman, totally in love. It was her personal tribute to Idris.”

The cuteness is too much - we love Vera’s ability to personalise her designs and Sabrina’s vision was just so romantic. 

4. Sarah Hyland - Vera Wang Wedding Dress With Pockets

Why wear one Vera Wang wedding dress when you can wear two? And that’s exactly what Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland did on her wedding day. Sarah worked with the team at Vera Wang to design both dresses. The first was designed to fit the aesthetic of a French chateau with Italian castle features - easy, right?

As well as being specific on the aesthetic, Sarah also asked the team to sew in pockets so she could carry a handkerchief and cotton buds - how practical. We do love a wedding dress with pockets! Her wedding reception dress, also Vera Wang, had more of an evening gown silhouette but was every bit as gorgeous as the first. 

5. Gwen Stefani - Short Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Like Sarah Hyland, Gwen Stefani also wore two Vera Wang wedding dresses to her Fourth of July wedding weekend. For her trip down the aisle, Gwen wore a stunning silk wedding dress which paired a fitted bodice with a tulle skirt - this look was styled with a veil that had her name embroidered into it, a detail we absolutely love!

In true Gwen style, the singer and judge donned an edgier, short wedding dress for her reception and paired it with a country-style white stiletto boot and a shorter veil.

6. Hailey Bieber - Vera Wang Reception Dress

Speaking of embroidered veils, who can forget the iconic ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ veil that Hailey Baldwin wore when she married Justin Bieber? We’re still not over it. Just like we’re not over the fact that the supermodel changed into the coolest wedding trainers to compliment her Vera Wang wedding reception dress. 

7. Victoria Beckham - Iconic Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Speaking of style icons, who could forget Victoria Beckham’s strapless corset wedding dress designed by Vera Wang. Victoria and David married in an elaborate wedding ceremony back in 1999 and set the bar extremely high for celebrity weddings across the globe.

Victoria donned the champagne-coloured Vera Wang wedding dress for her ceremony before her and David changed into matching purple outfits. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we love a bit of purple here at Hitched.

8. Mariah Carey - Royalty-Inspired Vera Wang Dress

Mariah Carey wore a voluminous Vera Wang wedding dress when she married her first husband in 1993. In a recent interview with Page Six about her three most iconic celebrity wedding dresses, Vera Wang said that Mariah’s wedding dress was very much influenced by Princess Diana’s 1981 wedding dress.

There’s no doubt that Princess Diana was a style icon and her royal wedding dress was one that everyone has ingrained in their minds, and it’s incredible to know that her look has inspired celebrity designers like Vera Wang and no doubt many more. 

9. Chrissy Teigen - Three Vera Wang Dresses

If you think Gwen and Sarah were extra with their two Vera Wang wedding dresses, Chrissy Teigen's bridal attire may leave your jaw on the floor. The wife of singer John Legend wore a whopping three Vera Wang wedding dresses during her Italian celebrations.

Each of the designer wedding dresses had a distinct look and feel. The first was a princess ballgown with a dramatic tulle skirt and plunging corset bodice. The second was a strapless mermaid wedding dress which she wore to her reception.

Chrissy finished the night at the wedding after party in an eye-catching red mermaid gown with a ruffled tulle skirt, similar to the one on Rochelle Humes’ wedding dress.

10. Lisa Rinna - Timeless Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills royalty Lisa Rinna has been married to husband Harry Hamlin for more than 25 years. The reality star wore a slinky Vera Wang wedding dress with spaghetti straps and despite the fact that the wedding took place a fair few years ago, trend-setter Lisa wore a simple wedding dress that could pass as a modern-day design today!

11. Lily Aldridge - Lace Vera Wang Wedding Dress

Being a top model for Victoria’s Secret, it’s no surprise that Lily Aldridge looked incredible on her wedding day in a custom-made Vera Wang wedding dress.

The model married Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill wearing a strapless wedding dress adorned with Chantilly and corded lace applique. It had timeless chiffon detailing at the back and was paired with a simple veil and natural hair and makeup. 

12. Alicia Keys - Beachy Vera Wang Dress

Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz recently celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary and both took to social media to gush about their long-lasting love.

Along with numerous throwback pictures from the day, Alicia wrote: “This is the day we got married! Look at these cutie pies!! Those same stars are still in our eyes. And it’s only getting better!!!!

"When we said our vows we wanted our love to never be about controlling each other, or being the boss of each other. We set each other free. ✨✨✨ We love each other with open arms, and an open heart. We love each other just the way we are and we grow together even in our different ways and directions. We are best friends. We’re so transparent and connected to each other.

"We laugh hard and we love hard and we cherish each other. I can’t believe it my love! 12 years!! Of pure love! There’s no love more precious than this! There's NOTHING more precious than this! I wake up looking forward to you everyday! Forever more. Yours 👑💜👑💜👑💜👑💜”

13. Kaley Cuoco - Pink Vera Wang Wedding Dress

We’ll never forget the fashion statement Kaley Cuoco made when she wore a pink wedding dress to her nuptials back in 2014. The show-stopping pink Vera Wang wedding dress was made up of layers upon layers of elaborate pink tulle and had a classic corset bodice.

The couple may not be together anymore, but it’s got to have been worth it for the dress alone? We love celebrity brides who don’t wear white and opt for colourful wedding dresses - it just shows that not all wedding traditions need to be followed. 

14. Shenae Grimes - Black Vera Wang Wedding Dress

90210 actress Shenae Grimes married her now-husband Josh Beech back in 2013. Shenae edged away from tradition in a striking black wedding dress which consisted of a lace halterneck bodice and a voluminous black and grey tulle skirt. 

15. Kate Hudson - Vera Wang Bride Wars Dress

Okay, so it may not have been her actual wedding, but as we said before, we’re still obsessing over the insanely pretty Vera Wang wedding dress that Kate Hudson wore in the hit rom-com Bride Wars. Kate depicted a strong-minded bride who was planning a wedding at the same time as bestie Anne Hathaway (well, her character anyway). It's one of our fave wedding films.

16. Khloe Kardashian - Vera Wang Mermaid Dress

Though pictures are hard to come by these days, we still have the image of Khloe Kardashian’s Vera Wang gown ingrained in our memories. The reality star wore a classic Vera Wang wedding dress at her wedding to ex-husband Lamar Odom. The dress consisted of a bodycon ruched bodice with romantic ruffled skirt and a satin jewelled belt.

17. Kim Kardashian - Vera Wang Ball Gown Dress

Like Khloe’s Vera Wang moment, pictures of Kim Kardashian’s designer wedding dress aren’t often seen, but we remember it clearly! When Kim Kardashian married Kris Humphries in 2011, she wore a ballgown Vera Wang wedding dress with a corset bodice and huge tulle skirt. Though the marriage only lasted 72 days, the image of that dress will never be forgotten!
