Most Expensive Wedding Dresses

Oct 13th 2014 at 11:42 PM

London wedding dress designers will usually have their finger near the pulse of the latest fashions, able to offer beautiful bridal gowns to brides of all shapes, sizes and in possession of budgets both large and small. The English like to consider themselves a little more refined than some other nations, and more sensitive to subtlety and nuance than some of their brasher cousins. London wedding dress designers will usually be expected to avoid some of the excesses we've outlined below when it comes to the most extravagant wedding dress design, but they're not always immune...

Strutting like a Peacock
A note to the aforementioned London wedding dress designers: you might want to look away now. The first matrimonial monstrosity in our list is the 2009 dress from China featuring a train made of male peacock feathers. Valued at $1.5 million dollars, the dress took eight workers in a dress factory 40 days to construct. The dress comes from a factory in Nanjing in China's Jiangsu Province and is topped off with a bodice made of brocade and Suzhou embroidery. It's fair to say that even with a couple of thousand peacock feathers, the dress isn't equal to the sum of its parts - the garish monstrosity is unlikely to catch on.
Beverly Hills? What a Surprise
If you had to pick where you guess the most expensive wedding dress would hail from, there're no prizes for coming up with Beverly Hills. The home of garish ostentation and people with more money than sense is also the place to head to if you have always dreamed of getting married in a dress covered in diamonds. This particular gown features a bodice that looks like it was pretty much cast in icing. If you do want to subtly demonstrate the amount of ill gotten gains you've tucked away in a bank account, you'll need a mere $12 million dollars to drag 150 carat's worth of diamonds down the aisle. Unsurprisingly, this is almost certainly the world's most expensive wedding dress.
Princess Diana
Ok, London wedding dress designers, it's time to plead guilty to crimes against good taste. Though, to be fair, David and Elizabeth Emanuel deserve to carry the can for whipping up this eyesore. While many young girls dream of wearing a fairy-tale wedding dress, by the time they reach adulthood few of them still mean one drawn as out of proportion as a Disney cartoon. It was the early eighties, greed was good and the dress has continued to be popular enough to tour around the world, so maybe not everyone thinks it was, as one bridal magazine called it in 2004: 'too much dress and too little princess.'
