Ever since Queen Victoria made extravagant white wedding dresses popular, the bridal gown, for many women, is the most important aspect of their big day.
These days, anything goes - any style, any color, even getting married in a pants suit - but there is just still something special about a gorgeous dress.
vashi.com - a retailer of engagement rings - produced a nice chart of 100 Iconic Wedding Dresses and I thought it would be fun to share some of them with you.
Getting married or not - enjoy!
1. Kate Middleton
Gorgeous yet almost understated as royal gowns go, The Duchess of Cambridge's Dress was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
