Expensive Wedding Dresses
Wedding dresses can cost thousands of dollars and it’s not only the production cost that drives up the price. Celebrities or rich people can use expensive wedding dresses for the example Prince William & Kate Middleton, Petra Ecclestone & James Stunt, Kim kardashian & Kris Humphries, Michael Jordan & Yvette Prieto, and Wayne & Coleen Rooney. But a wedding is an expensive occasion for even the most humble bride and groom. Imagine, then, the wedding that includes the most expensive wedding dresses in the world. The Diamond Wedding Gown is a collaboration of Renee Strauss, owner of a highly successful bridal salon in Beverly Hills, and Martin Katz, who deals in rare jewels. Featuring 150 carats of diamonds, the dress is valued at US $12 million. The world’s most expensive wedding dress was unveiled at the premier Luxury Brands Lifestyle Bridal show in February of 2006. Later in the year, Dubai’s Fashion & Diamonds show also featured a gown touted as the world’s most expensive wedding dress. Yumi Katsura’s design, however, is only valued at $8.5 million. Despite being only the second most expensive wedding dress, it features 1,000 pearls and one of the world’s only two 5 carat white gold diamonds. Almost every woman looks forward to the day when she exchanges vows of love with the man of her dreams. And one of the things that take center stage from the moment the date is set until that memorable day is the wedding gown. Throughout history, many brides-to-be have given the most attention to what they are going to wear on that eventful day. Some may have gone with a more traditional approach. Others dared to go beyond the conventions of fashion and culture, marching down the aisle in gowns that flaunt daring, brazen, and even outrageous designs. Others preferred to get married in more simplistic gowns.
