5. Grace Kelly’s Iconic $65,000 Helen Rose Gown

We give you permission to forget about your wedding budget (for a bit) and join us in drooling over the most amazing, luxurious and gorgeous wedding dresses money can buy.

The dress that may have inspired Kate Middleton’s now infamous gown was worn by Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier in 1956 and is said to have been worth around $8,000. And while that figure may not impress you much, especially after reading about the Duchess’s modern-day version, it reportedly doesn’t include the labor fee for MGM costume designer Helen Rose, who designed the gown. And of course, that was 56 years ago, when $8,000 was more like $65,000.
