Celebrity Wedding Dresses For Less
Wedding Gowns of the Famous - but cheap!
Ever wish you could afford a celebrity-style wedding dress?
Guess what-you can look star-fabulous and still keep it
affordable. We've compiled a list of the most fashionable
wedding gowns worn by the rich and famous, and we'll tell you
how you can achieve the same Hollywood glamour
without breaking the bank.
Jessica Simpson She may not be a newlywed any longer, but when
Jessica Simpson married Nick Lachey in 2002, she looked
wonderfully wholesome in a one-of-kind, beaded pearl, A-line
dress designed by Vera Wang. Jess's dress cost a whopping
$11,000, but you can pull off this same pretty piece by shopping
at David's Bridal. Style number CT2406 is a bargain version of
Jessica's bridal wedding dress at just under $700. It features
the same corded lace and chapel train that the ex-Mrs. Lachey
wore, and a sash, available in 22 different colors, can also be
Renee Zellweger Bridget Jones's 2005 beach wedding to country
singer Kenny Chesney was a Caribbean celebration like no other.
The bride wore a pearl-colored, strapless, mermaid wedding gown
by Carolina Herrera. The dress is perfect for sand and surf-
classy, yet casual. But its price tag is one few can afford.
Luckily, Moonlight Bridal boasts a close copy of the gown for a
mere fraction of the price. In beaded taffeta with a sweep
train, you'll feel just as rich and romantic as Renee.
Katie Holmes Power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise put on a
wedding as big as their blockbuster names in late 2006. And
bride Katie put on a wedding dress just as chic as she. Designer
Georgio Armani fashioned five different outfits for Katie's
wedding weekend, but none could top the beauty of the wedding
gown itself. Described by Katie as "sheer and floaty", the
couture creation was styled with white lace in an
off-the-shoulder neckline and A-line bodice. Think you couldn't
find a dress to match? Think again! Eugenia Couture has designed
a far less expensive version of the gown. With the same dropped
waistline and romantic rose appliqués, you can look just like
Mrs. Tom Cruise.
Gwen Stefani This rockin' beauty is nothing if not unique!
Gwen's style is fun, funky, and fashionable. So there was no
doubt that her wedding dress would be a work of art. When she
married fellow crooner Gavin Rossdale in the fall of 2002, she
wore a custom-made Dior dress by John Galliano. But she added
her own twist- the bottom of the gown was dyed hot pink! You can
add your own flare to any simple, white wedding gown by dyeing
it. Silk is the best material to work with when coloring a gown.
And the actual dyeing process is best left to the professionals.
