Three Most Expensive Wedding Dresses
Some brides are lucky enough to get away with buying cheap wedding dress on eBay, but most of us have to spend an arm and a leg to have our dream dress (or something really close to it) made. Hopefully, the three most expensive wedding dresses of 2009 might make you feel better about the amount you spent. While these dresses were made for high-end marketing stunts rather than an actual bride, but you have to wonder what it’d be like to walk down the aisle in one of these. Here they are, in ascending order.
Peacock feather wedding dress
This elaborate ball gown is made entirely out of 2009 peacock feathers. Made by 8 craftsmen in the span of just two months, the dress was launched at the Wedding Culture Expo in Nanjing, China on March 28. The number of feathers used is supposed to represent the unveiling of the Chinese year 2009. Aside from the extravagant peacock feathers, the dress is also embellished with 60 Hetian jades and is worth USD 1.4 million.
Pearl and diamond wedding dress
In February 2009, renowned Japanese bridal couturier Yumi Katsura unveiled the second most expensive wedding dress of 2009. Valued at USD 8.5 million, the dress is embellished with over 1,000 and one of only two 5-carat white gold diamonds in the world.
Diamond wedding dress
The most expensive wedding dress of 2009 was made through a collaboration between Renee Strauss and Martin Katz, a bridal salon owner and jewels dealer. The finished product was a wedding dress made out of 150 diamonds. It was unveiled at the first Dubai Fashion and Diamonds Show and is worth USD 12 million.
