Celebrity Wedding Dresses For Less

Jul 18, 2008
Ever wish you could afford a celebrity-style wedding dress? Guess what-you can look star-fabulous and still keep it affordable. We've compiled a list of the most fashionable wedding gowns worn by the rich and famous, and we'll tell you how you can achieve the same Hollywood glamour without breaking the bank.

Jessica Simpson She may not be a newlywed any longer, but when Jessica Simpson married Nick Lachey in 2002, she looked wonderfully wholesome in a one-of-kind, beaded pearl, A-line dress designed by Vera Wang. Jess's dress cost a whopping $11,000, but you can pull off this same pretty piece by shopping at David's Bridal. Style number CT2406 is a bargain version of Jessica's bridal wedding dress at just under $700. It features the same corded lace and chapel train that the ex-Mrs. Lachey wore, and a sash, available in 22 different colors, can also be added.

Renee Zellweger Bridget Jones's 2005 beach wedding to country singer Kenny Chesney was a Caribbean celebration like no other. The bride wore a pearl-colored, strapless, mermaid wedding gown by Carolina Herrera. The dress is perfect for sand and surf- classy, yet casual. But its price tag is one few can afford. Luckily, Moonlight Bridal boasts a close copy of the gown for a mere fraction of the price. In beaded taffeta with a sweep train, you'll feel just as rich and romantic as Renee.

Katie Holmes Power couple Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise put on a wedding as big as their blockbuster names in late 2006. And bride Katie put on a wedding dress just as chic as she. Designer Georgio Armani fashioned five different outfits for Katie's wedding weekend, but none could top the beauty of the wedding gown itself. Described by Katie as "sheer and floaty", the couture creation was styled with white lace in an off-the-shoulder neckline and A-line bodice. Think you couldn't find a dress to match? Think again! Eugenia Couture has designed a far less expensive version of the gown. With the same dropped waistline and romantic rose appliqués, you can look just like Mrs. Tom Cruise.

Gwen Stefani This rockin' beauty is nothing if not unique! Gwen's style is fun, funky, and fashionable. So there was no doubt that her wedding dress would be a work of art. When she married fellow crooner Gavin Rossdale in the fall of 2002, she wore a custom-made Dior dress by John Galliano. But she added her own twist- the bottom of the gown was dyed hot pink! You can add your own flare to any simple, white wedding gown by dyeing it. Silk is the best material to work with when coloring a gown. And the actual dyeing process is best left to the professionals. Contact your local dry cleaner or visit www.fabricdyeing.com.

You'll be fighting off the paparazzi in these gorgeous, yet reasonably priced, replicas. Red carpet or not, get ready to strike a pose for your photographer's camera in one of these stunning dresses!
