9 of the best celebrity wedding dresses ever, plus lookalikes you can shop
When it comes to finding your dream wedding dress, the stakes probably feel high. From strapless to long-sleeved, mermaid to ball gown, lace to satin, the options are endless, and that can feel overwhelming. A great way to start narrowing down your likes and dislikes is by looking at celebrity wedding dresses for inspo. If you’re hoping for something unconventional (because doesn’t everyone want to make jaws drop at their wedding?) celebrities typically choose out-of-the-box styles that you wouldn’t stumble upon in stores.
Although celebs have top-notch designers at their disposal, you can find affordable and accessible wedding dresses that mirror their styles, if you look hard enough. To help you out, we did some digging and found lookalikes to our favorite celebrity wedding dresses from recent years. Whether you want Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s beautiful buttons or Hilary Duff’s statement sleeves, you can replicate these celebs’ wedding dress styles with your own personal touch.
From the pointed shoulders to the trailing sleeves to the mermaid fit, Hilary Duff’s wedding dress is one of the most unique silhouettes we’ve seen in recent years. Add in the open back and button details, and you have a true knockout. Matthew Koma is a lucky man.
Gorgonia Mermaid Wedding Dress/ Minimalist Bridal Gown

Since she delayed her wedding to Justin Bieber who knows how many times, Hailey Bieber’s wedding dress was highly anticipated, and the model didn’t disappoint. In typical celebrity fashion, Hailey actually wore three wedding dresses, but the ceremony gown took the cake in our minds. Designed by her longtime collaborator Virgil Abloh and fashion label Off White, the gown was extravagant, to say the least. Intricate lace and pearl details, a subtle corset outline, long sleeves, a form-fitting silhouette, and a stunning train make Hailey’s dress truly one of a kind.
Although her exact wedding dress could never be recreated, we found the next best thing for you to shop below.

The former Game of Thrones star is no stranger to wearing gowns, but they’re typically black instead of white (we’re looking at you, Sansa Stark). Turner’s wedding to Joe Jonas initially took place in a Las Vegas chapel, but the couple had an official ceremony months later in France. Her dress was designer by Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton creative director of women’s collections. The gown included short sleeves paired with lace detailing down her arms, a bold back cut-out, a full skirt, and a plunging neckline.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas
When Priyanka Chopra Jonas married Nick Jonas, she had quite a few more wedding dresses than fellow J-Sister Sophie Turner. Like 10 more. Our favorite of Pri’s has to be her custom Ralph Lauren gown that she wore to the American portion of her wedding ceremony. We don’t even know where to begin with this one—the trailing buttons, sheer overlay skirt, or the scalloped, embellished collar? This is possibly our favorite wedding dress of all time.
