The best celebrity wedding dresses according to Instagram

Wedding dresses are truly an art form: not only are they one of the most important outfits you’ll ever get to wear in your life, but they’re a chance to reflect who you are as a person, and showcase your personal style.

Choosing a wedding dress can take months, and rightly so! From scouring the internet in search of inspiration, to trying on several gowns in search of “the one”, it’s a purchase of huge significance.

If you’re in need of some inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place. By using Instagram data, we’ve uncovered the best celebrity wedding dresses of all time, so read on, to see if you can find your favourite…

1. Ariana Grande, 2021, 18,555,520 engagements

Topping the list, with 18,451,520 likes and 104,000 comments, is Ariana’s custom-made Vera Wang dress she wore to marry Dalton Gomez last year. The chic empire-waist column gown featured a sculpted neckline and low back, and was made from the most delicate silk. 

To complete the look, Ariana wore a cute shoulder-length veil, featuring a satin bow.

The wedding itself was an intimate affair, taking place at Ariana’s home in Montecito, California.

2. Kourtney Kardashian, 2022, 7,918,154 engagements

Kourtney and Travis’ lavish Italian wedding made headlines around the world, not just because it was the third time they married each other, or the star-studded guestlist, but because of Kourtney’s dramatic wedding dress.

Designed by Dolce & Gabbana, her corset minidress, which was made of satin and lace, was a nod to Italian lingerie. However, it was her veil that was truly the standout piece: skimming the floor, it depicted the Virgin Mary, and had flowers embroidered into the headpiece, taking inspiration from the Mediterranean flowers that the venue was surrounded by. 

With 7,880,054 likes, and 38,100 comments on her Instagram post, Kourtney’s extravagant dress and veil have earned her, her rightful second place as one of the best celebrity wedding dresses of all time.

3. Sophie Turner, 2021, 6,816,019 engagements

Classic and refined, Sophie’s Louis Vuitton dress was the perfect choice for her South of France wedding to Joe Jonas. The deep V-neck, paired with the long lace sleeves, structured shoulders and voluminous skirt was exactly what you’d expect of Sophie’s classic style.

She paired her wedding dress with a simple veil and wore her hair loose, and earned herself 6,752,919 likes, and 63,100 comments on Instagram.

4. Priyanka Chopra (wedding dress), 2018, 6,270,220 engagements

Priyanka’s Ralph Lauren wedding dress has made it into fourth place, with 6,214,420 likes and 55,800 comments. Its figure-hugging silhouette was both elegant and sensual, and apparently took 1,826 hours to bead and embroider

Paired with a 75-foot veil and Jimmy Choos, it was the perfect dress to kick off her and Nick Jonas’ four-day wedding extravaganza.

5. Priyanka Chopra (lehenga), 2018, 5,477,978 engagements

Coming close behind in fifth place, with 5,437,778 likes and 40,200 comments, is Priyanka Chopra’s extravagant ruby red lehenga. Designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, it took a staggering 3,720 hours to make

Decorated with hand-cut organza flowers, she topped her lehenga off with a Bindi, traditional jewellery, and a veil, and will go down in history as one of the best celebrity wedding dresses of all time.

6. Lily Collins, 2021, 4,824,648 engagements

Lily Collins and Charlie McDowell’s rustic wedding in Colorado had her 26 million followers screaming in delight at her elegant wedding dress, designed by Ralph Lauren. The Little Red Riding Hood-inspired lace dress complete with a hood perfectly fit in with their fairy tale surroundings of cosy log cabins and waterfalls. 

With 4,809,149 likes and 15,500 on her Instagram post, Lily’s beautiful dress has earned her sixth place on our list.

7. Hailey Bieber, 2019, 3,609,685 engagements

Hailey and Justin Bieber’s wedding was one of the most talked-about events in 2019, with the couple hosting a lavish ceremony in South Carolina 12 months after they legally got married in a New York courthouse.

Designed by Virgil Abloh, Hailey’s dress was a literal dream, with its off-the-shoulder detailing, dramatic lace train, and equally daring veil, with ‘TILL DEATH DO US PART” stitched into the bottom.

With 3,609,610 likes and 75 comments, Hailey Bieber’s sensational Off White wedding dress has earned her a respectable seventh position on our list of celebrity wedding dresses.

8. Kim Kardashian, 2014, 2,728,986 engagements

Perhaps one of the most high-profile celebrity weddings of all time, Kim and Kanye’s wedding was talked about for months; with Kim’s Givenchy dress (designed by her good friend Riccardo Tisci) gaining a staggering 2,719,723 likes and 9,263 comments on Instagram.

Traditional and classic, her gown featured long lace sleeves, a sheer back, and a long train, along with a diamond-shaped bodice; and was a thousand miles away from the dresses she wore in 2011 when she married Kris Humphries.

9. Elizabeth Gillies, 2020, 2,649,470 engagements

When Dynasty actress Elizabeth Gillies tied the knot with producer and composer Michael Corcoran, their wedding fell in between lockdowns, so they switched plans and wed in a charming outdoor space in New Jersey instead.

Her dress matched the simplicity of the day, and was a world away from the many dresses she’d worn on Dynasty. Designed by Britt Wood, her chosen dress was a strapless white gown, with a simple detachable cape, that added drama to the overall look. 

She completed the look with a floral Oscar de la Renta veil, and a pair of Jimmy Choos; earning her 2,638,370 likes, and 11,100 comments.

10. Britney Spears, 2022, 2,145,769 engagements

Britney Spears’ dress she wore to marry Sam Asghari earlier this year has awarded her a very respectable 10th position on our list of top celebrity wedding dresses, with 2,124,169 likes, and 21,600 comments. Designed by long-time friend Donatella Versace, she wore an off-the-shoulder gown with a thigh-high split, but it was her accessories that really gained attention: a 90s choker and short sheer gloves are definitely a choice!

Her lowkey wedding at her home in Thousand Oaks, California truly was a cause for celebration, with the recent ending of her conservatorship meaning she could finally marry her partner.

11. Chiara Ferragni (second/evening dress), 2018, 2,064,899 engagements

One of the original fashion bloggers, it goes without saying that Chiara was going to have some truly iconic looks on her wedding day; and it was her evening dress that garnered the most attention, with 2,047,499 likes, and 17,400 comments.

Designed by Dior, her dress had a lot of meaning, with its delicate embroideries featuring her husband Fedez’s lyrics, and a tiny lion as a tribute to their son, Leo.

 12. Alexandra Daddario, 2022, 1,551,878 engagements

When actress Alexandra Daddario married producer Andrea Form, it was a family affair, held in New Orleans, where guests wandered the French Quarter through to Bar Marilou for the reception.

Alexandra’s Danielle Frankel Studio dress was stunning, and perfectly fitting for the Louisiana heat. A pleated silk, floor-length number, it featured spaghetti straps and lace appliques, along with a tulle train.

Tying the look together, for her ‘something blue’, she wore a bright blue ring, which was said to be inspired by Meghan Markle.
With her Instagram post getting 1,541,905 likes and 9,973 comments, Alexandra has rightfully earned herself 12th position of the most loved celebrity wedding dresses.

13. Paris Hilton, 2021, 1,271,946 engagements

As to be expected, Paris Hilton’s wedding to Carter Reum was big on fairy tale vibes. Her three-part wedding spanned Thursday through to Saturday, which meant that she had numerous dresses; with one outfit described as “Barbie, but bridal”.

However, it was her Oscar de La Renta gown that gained the most attention on social media, with her post getting 1,261,046 likes, and 10,900 comments.

Inspired by Grace Kelly, she looked like a princess, with her ballgown skirt, which boasted 20 layers of tulle, high neckline and lace sleeves. She paired this with a veil adorned in embroidered flowers, and diamond earrings.

14. Lea Michele, 2019, 1,101,257 engagements

With 1,101,257 likes, Lea Michele’s wedding dress has come in at 14th position. Designed by Monique Lhuillier, her dress was the ultimate fashion lesson in elegance, with a full skirt and dramatic train, alongside a corset top that featured some expertly placed ruching.

She completed the look with a cathedral length veil, and a bouquet of white roses. Her wedding to Zandy Reich was held in California, but it had a Tuscan theme, which extended to several parts of the day, including the desserts, with guests served a selection of bite-sized cannoli and biscotti.

15. Keyshia Ka’oir, 2017, 906,868 engagements

In 15th place, it’s entrepreneur Keyshia Ka’oir’s wedding to rapper Gucci Mane, which took place back in 2017. Best described as flashy, they tied the knot on live TV in Miami, with highlights including a diamond-studded bouquet, and matching Bentleys.

Keyshia’s dress caused a stir, with 879,668 likes and 27,200 comments on Instagram. Designed by Charbel Zoe, the long-sleeve gown featured beading and leaf-patterned embroidery, as was finished off with a feathery train.

Alongside the diamond bouquet, Keyshia herself was dripping in jewels, with bling earrings and a crystal headpiece.
