From the couture designer wedding dress to the over-the-top décor and top secret locations, celebrities knows how to get married right. And while they can be quite far-fetched (or even short-lived), an A-lister's big day remains etched in fans' brains for years to come.

Celebrity weddings have been closely followed for decades. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Florence nuptials were as lavish as they come. Case in point: In lieu of place cards, guests' names were rumored to have been etched into a marble slab. Plus, who can forget Kim's now-iconic custom Givenchy gown? Also, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin's wedding weekend was closely followed for a few reasons: Not only did a self-proclaimed eternal bachelor finally take the plunge, but also Amal's bridal wardrobe was just as captivating. And then, there are unions like Britney Spears and Kevin Federline and Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee—these couples' crazy celebrations have remained in infamy for years even though their marriages quickly ended.

Of course, we can't forget about the royals either. From Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen wedding dress to Grace Kelly's big-day ensemble, which has remained a pillar of bridal beauty for over 50 years, these are the moments that define wedding-day trends for decades to come.

To stir up some serious nostalgia and wedding-envy, we went back decades to bring you the most memorable celebrity wedding moments of all time. Sit back, relax, and re-live these incredible celebrity "I dos" (and wedding dresses) from the past century.

Amber TamblynTamblyn and husband David Cross are an offbeat couple, and the dress she wore to their October 2012 wedding exemplifies that: "It was marigold, and it had a train in the back that was cream," Tamblyn told Us Weekly of the frock. "There's nothing really traditional about me.". We'd say that's an accurate statement considering she showed up to their wedding in a canoe and exchanged vows in a clearing in the woods

Jessica BielMany were shocked Biel didn't wear white to marry Justin Timberlake in Puglia, Italy in October 2012, but the actress stunned in a voluminous, petal-pink Giambattista Valli wedding dress . The custom-made creation echoed a different design from Valli's spring 2012 haute couture collection. Biel made the look bridal by swapping the runway's red color for the more feminine hue and toning down the dramatic silhouette — her Audrey Hepburn-esque hairstyle and flowing veil helped as well
