What an odd idea! Why would anyone want to buy an ugly wedding dress for their Alabama wedding celebration? Obviously, they wouldn’t, and yet many brides do. Why? Because they are misled into following the lead of their favorite celebrities.

Some brides let a celebrity’s status sway them more than their sense of style. Take Jessica Biel’s pink dress worn in 2012 when she tied the knot with Justin Timberlake. Is a dress the color of cotton candy really what you want?

By the same token, do you really want to emulate the gown worn by English actress, Liberty Ross? Isn’t black the color you wear for funerals?

An actress from another era, Elizabeth Taylor, wore a hooded green concoction at her 1959 wedding to Eddie Fisher. Ouch. In Liz’s defense, it was her fourth marriage, but that is one ugly wedding dress!

So far, the celebrities above have under-achieved by wearing pink, black, and green gowns respectively. Can it get any worse? How about purple, complements of burlesque dancer, Dita Von Teese? Do you really want your guests to think you had your gown made from your grandmother’s curtains?

So, do celebrities ever come up with an iconic gown? Yes. The Knot considers Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding to Monaco’s Prince Raineir III one of the most iconic gowns, along with Kate Middleton’s dress from her wedding to Prince William in 2011. Kate’s gown cost something like $400,000, perhaps a little rich for you.
