1. Serena Williams
The 36-year-old tennis pro and Alexis Ohanian tied the knot in a gorgeous Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding in New Orleans on Nov. 16. Williams walked down the aisle in a voluminous princess-like Sarah Burton-designed Alexander McQueen strapless gown with a sheer cape.
For the ceremony, Williams changed into a shorter white dress, which featured a bedazzled corset top and a feathered skirt. She topped off the look with the perfect pair of dancing shoes -- emblazoned silver-and-gold Nike Cortez sneakers with sparkles.
The younger sister of Kate Middleton stunned in a custom-made white Giles Deacon gown with capped sleeves, a corseted bodice, draped front, and heart-shaped detail in the back for her May 20 wedding to James Matthews.
The mesmerizing bride accessorized the look with a veil crafted by milliner Stephen Jones, a Maidenhair Fern tiara and matching hairpiece from Robinson Pelham, and Manolo Blahnik heels made of ivory satin and pearl detailing.
The Dancing With the Stars pro's wedding was a fairy tale come true, complete with not one but two spectacular custom Karen Sabag Couture dresses for her special day. For her July 8 wedding to Maks Chmerkovskiy, the 31-year-old dancer walked down the aisle in a crystal bodice ballgown featuring off-the-shoulder sleeves, voluminous fabric in an ivory tone, layers of pleats and a long veil.
"I found myself gasping as I tried it on for the first time in Karen Sabag Couture bridal salon," she wrote on Instagram. "She and I designed my dream dress, a one of a kind masterpiece that I will cherish forever and hopefully pass down to my daughter one day."
The blonde beauty said "I do" to Brooks Laich on July 8 and also opted for two custom-made gowns for her big day.
The former Dancing With the Stars pro stunned in a classic strapless Marchesa design by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, which featured over 20 yards of silk radzimir and 37 buttons down the back. She also glammed up the white dress with a long tiered tulle veil.
For the reception, Hough went for a sexier look. The three-piece Marchesa ensemble included a glamorous low-cut bodysuit with thousands of pearls and crystals, a tulle skirt and elegant sheer lace cape. The removable outfit was perfect for the bride to dance the night away!
The 25-year-old model waltzed down the aisle with Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander on Nov. 4 in the most amazing wedding gown.
Upton sparkled in a one-of-a-kind white lace, long-sleeve Valentino gown with buttons up the back. Her hair was pulled back on the side with loose curls falling around her face.
“For my ceremony dress, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic team at Valentino,” Upton told Vogue about her ensemble. “They are the best at creating delicate, beautiful lace and details, and their Italian heritage kept the fashion and feel authentic to our venue. The design process was extremely collaborative, so I was able to really include my personal style and create my dream dress.”
When it comes to the perfect mix of sexy and elegant, the "Follow Your Arrow" singer donned the ultimate look for her Oct. 14 wedding to musician Ruston Kelly.
The 29-year-old singer wowed in a long-sleeve Berta white lace gown from the designer's fall/winter 2017 collection. The bohemian frock featured a plunging neckline, an open back, delicate embroidery with floral applique and a long train with lace hemline.
The 30-year-old MMA fighter was a vision at her Aug. 19 wedding to boyfriend Travis Browne. The blonde stunner showed some skin in a plunging, body-hugging, hand-beaded mermaid "Harper" dress by Galia Lahav.
Made with scalloped motifs and beaded straps, the backless gown had a 1920s flapperesque look to it that fit perfectly for Rousey's Hawaiian celebration.
Without outshining one another, both brides exuded elegance and sophistication in their Christian Siriano creations for their March 25 wedding.
Wiley donned a two-piece silk faille, off-the-shoulder top with a full crisp skirt and silver Sophia Webster sandals. For the reception, the Orange Is the New Black star changed into a fitted skirt with a high slit.
"I knew I wanted the skirt to be princessy, and I knew I wanted it to be two pieces," Wiley told Martha Stewart Weddings. "He immediately sketched something right in front of my eyes!"
Meanwhile, Morelli took a risk in a silk-crepe jumpsuit with a crystal beaded collar and cape, which came off post-ceremony, and Sophia Webster white satin pumps. Pure perfection!
Menzel, 46, dazzled in an off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera gown from the designer's Spring 2018 collection. The lace concoction featured 3/4 dangling sleeves, a long tail, a maroon ribbon cinched around the waist and beautiful detailed embroidery. She added a rhinestone headband and flowing veil for added lush.
The red-headed beauty and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo made their love official on June 10. The Molly's Game star looked glamorous in her lacy vintage-inspired wedding dress. The strapless number featured a fitted bodice with a sweetheart neckline and a drop waistline.
Chastain kept her look simple with minimal jewelry and her hair in an updo and veil.
"A dress that fully covers you creates a sense of purity and mystery," Kerr told Vogueof her gorgeous gown, which was inspired by Kelly. "I've had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian. But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back. My greatest sources of inspiration have always been Grace, Audrey Hepburn, and my grandmother, who at 80 has an effortless chic: a nice pant, a white blouse, a scarf, a little heel."
"Honestly, I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful wedding dress," she added. To finish off the regal look, Kerr had a show-stopping pearl-encrusted headpiece by milliner Stephen Jones.
May 28 was an unforgettable date for the Shameless star and director Sam Esmail. Rossum walked down the aisle in a custom-made Carolina Herrera dress with a dramatic train.
"As soon as I got engaged, I immediately knew that I wanted Mrs. Herrera to make my wedding dress," Rossum told Vogue, adding that she didn’t have a specific idea of what she wanted. The final creation included 212 tiny buttons all down the back, off-the-shoulder sleeves with beading and sequins, an embroidered cinched waist and a gorgeous veil with a lace hemline.
