Although styles have changed, we can find certain elements in these celebrity weddings that would still look amazing even by today’s standards! And (for the most part) these marriages stood the test of time.
#5 Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash
Johnny & June married at a church in 1968. June wore a light blue short lace dress with blue flowers in her hair. After 35 years of marriage, June passed away in 2003. Johnny died only a few months after her death.
#4 Elvis Presley & Priscilla Presley
Not even all the hair gel in the world could keep these two together, but the two remained close even after their divorce. Elvis and Priscilla married in an 8-minute civil ceremony in Las Vegas in 1967.
#3 Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward
Paul and Joanne were married in a Las Vegas hotel in 1958, where Paul read the poem The Art of Marriage to his new bride. Joanne was quoted as saying, “From the beginning, Paul and I had an advantage: we were good friends before we were lovers. I mean, we really liked each other. We could talk to each other. We could talk to each other, we could tell each other anything without fear of ridicule or rejection. There was trust.” (Wise words from a woman married 50 years!)
#2 Bobby Kennedy & Ethel Kennedy
Married at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in 1950, this couple had 1,200 guests at their wedding! The couple had eleven (yes, eleven!) children during their 18 year marriage (that means Ethel was pregnant for 99 months of her life…WOW!) Ethel never re-married after Bobby’s death in 1968.
FUN FACT: At their wedding reception, the bridesmaids were all thrown in the swimming pool.
#1 Grace Kelly & Rainier III, Prince of Monaco
Grace and Prince Rainier had two weddings: one was a civil wedding, and the other a religious ceremony. Their religious ceremony was televised in 1956 where the Oscar winner wore a lace wedding gown, a gift from the MGM Studio. Princess Grace’s gown was the inspiration behind Kate Middleton’s lace-sleeved wedding dress.
