29. Serena Williams
In the case of tennis sensation Serena Williams, we’re not talking about a wedding dress, but three dresses. As you can see, the athlete’s dress was quite a fashion statement, and according to her, one she’d never imagine making! Every little girl dreams of her dress for the big day, and Williams said she’d never thought her wedding dress would look anything like that, but upon meeting fashion designer Sarah Burton (for Alexander McQueen) and seeing this sketch, she fell in love with the idea of having a fancy ball-gown dress.
And why not make a spectacular ball of your wedding? After all, most people only have one wedding (ideally, at least). The best solution for not being able to choose the ultimate wedding dress is, naturally, choosing three. If you were impressed by her first dress, you’ve seen nothing yet. For the reception (that reportedly cost around $4 million), the tennis star changed to another dress – her second dress of the night – was hand-made by world-renowned fashion designer Versace’s team of embroiderers, in a delicate work that took 1,500 hours to complete.
