“Yumi Katsura’s $8.5 Million White Gold Diamond Dress”
Japanese bridal designer Yumi Katsura created a gown so extravagant, it has yet to find a bride (or maybe we should say, budget) equally as extravagant to wear it down the aisle. Decked with a five-carat white gold diamond and 1,000 pearls, the ornate gown can be yours for a mere $8.5 million.

“Kate Middleton’s $400,000 Alexander McQueen Gown”
Not-so-common commoner Kate Middleton lived out every girl’s fantasy when her princess-perfect ivory satin and lace Alexander McQueen wedding dress, complete with a nearly nine-foot train, transformed her into a real-life princess right in front of the world’s eyes — and reportedly for the mere price of £250,000 (about $400,000)! Made with the most luxurious and delicate fabrics — French Chantilly and English Cluny lace, ivory and white satin gazar — and decorated with hand-stitched lace applique by the Royal School of Needlework, the dress took designer Sarah Burton and her crew months to make — and stole Britain’s most eligible bachelor’s (and the world’s) heart.

“Kim Kardashian’s Three $25,000 (each) Vera Wang Gowns”
For a $10 million wedding, the princess ball gown that the reality star wore down the aisle may have clocked in at a surprisingly modest (for a girl with a $2 million ring!) $25,000, but the mini mogul didn’t wear just one dress. Assuming Kim’s three different but equally dream-worthy custom Vera Wang gowns were in the same price range, her total dress bill rang in at around $75,000.
