Iconic Wedding Dresses Women Have Lusted after through the Decades ...

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!
