This was a banner year for weddings. We can't imagine that 2012 could possibly top it. From the three big K's (Kate, Kate, and Kim) to a few less-hyped but nonetheless gorgeous nuptials, it really was an amazing year for tying the knot. And at least 9 of the 10 featured here are still married. Hooray for love!
Click through to remember the gowns, the grooms, and everything in between from the most fashionable weddings of the year.
Kate Middleton and Prince William: Remember that day? The Sarah Burton-designed Alexander McQueen lace gown. The half up/half down hair. The self-applied makeup. And THAT ASS. Oh, wait and there was a groom, too. He wore red, right?
Kate Moss and Jamie Hince: From the Galliano-designed gown to the three-day party, Mosstock was the invite to score this year.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries: Here we are--three Vera Wang dresses, about $18 million dollars, and one divorce later. Sigh.
Sofia Coppola and Thomas Mars: Was this the best look of the 2011 wedding season? Sofia wore a custom made lavender gown by Azzedine Alaïa, and neither she nor Thomas looked like they bothered to brush their hair, and yet they seem genuinely, magnificently happy. Since it was held in Italy, we bet the buffet was unbelievable, too.
Michael Kors and Lance LePere: There are no pictures or details from the couple's private Southampton ceremony , but we had to mention them. (Gay marriage was FINALLY legalized in New York State this year.) We're sure that was a really fun party.
Lauren Bush and David Lauren: Putting to rest months of speculation about whether she would be called Lauren Lauren (she went with Lauren Bush Lauren), she and David married at the Ralph Lauren compound ranch in Colorado, wearing Ralph Lauren, naturally. Doesn't it kinda look like they went to one of those "dress up Western-style" photo booths at a fair? But classier?
Joanna Hillman and Aram Green: Her dress came directly from the Rochas archives, because the Harper Bazaar's senior market editor would never wear an off-the-rack wedding dress (we wouldn't either, if we had her access). The wedding looked like a sophisticated and very New York-y affair.
Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic: Is a model one of the few brides who can pull off a short dress with a long train? Anja did it spectacularly, wearing an Emilio Pucci frock by Peter Dundas. Also, it's certainly an advantage to be a model on your wedding day--every single picture of her looked amazing.
Mark Ronson and Josephine de la Baume: Mark should be held up as an example of what all grooms should look like. Pink and white seersucker totally works for us. And his French bride in Zac Posen? It sort of speaks for itself.
Bella Swan and Edward Cullen: OK, it was a fake wedding, but it garnered more attention than many a "real" celebrity's wedding. The bride wore Carolina Herrara. The groom was very sparkly at one point when the sunlight hit him the wrong way.
