Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes — or TomKat, as they were known — married in Italy in 2006. Katie's elegant wedding dress was designed especially for her by Giorgio Armani, but you can recreate the look on any wedding budget. The off-the-shoulder design made for a stylish, subtle dress that still showed a bit of skin.

Veil: $361 from Nicole Miller

One of the most famous weddings to take place in the 20th century was a winter wedding. In her youth, Queen Elizabeth was a style icon, and her white satin dress influenced many women's wedding outfits. It was very demure compared to today's bridal designs, with a high neckline and long sleeves, which makes it perfect for a cold wedding day.

The queen recently became a great-grandmother >>
