Royal wedding dresses are some of the most iconic outfits ever worn in modern history. It totally makes sense to us why they're so famous—and not just because we're huge fans of classic beauty and style that comes with royal wedding dresses.
Royal wedding dresses help mark momentous occasions in history. Though every wedding dress is a beautiful symbol of love, devotion, and partnership, a royal wedding dress represents something much larger than a relationship between two people. After all, there's many reasons why a whopping 23 million Americans tuned in to see the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William. Other than getting the unique opportunity to see a new chapter in the royal family history and to see the lovebirds finally make their vows, all eyes were on Kate Middleton's wedding dress (which was a totally gorgeous custom Alexander McQueen design).
But Kate Middleton's wedding dress is far from the first royal wedding dress that people were itching to see. We all remember Princess Diana's beautiful gown as she walked down the aisle. And who can forget the ravishing number that was Grace Kelly's dress on her big day? As memorable as all royal wedding dresses are, it never hurts to take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of the most fabulous ones.
