We have some major wedding inspiration after this past year’s celebrity nuptials. It seemed like everyone got married in 2018. From quick engagements to 10-year relationships, the weddings of our favorite celebrities (some many of us had waited years for) took place.

As the year went by, we saw not one but two royal weddings, and the past 12 months had their share of celebrations — from simple, backyard weddings to weeklong parties. Incredible locations, major designers and star-studded guest lists were the icing on the cake this year.

We saw many trends among these celebrities, but the most common was opting for more low-key, secret ceremonies. Some kept with tradition, and others celebrated their love for one another with loved ones. From small gatherings of 80 to televised events, we round up the best celebrity weddings of 2018.

A Royal Wedding for the history books. American actress Meghan Markle joined the royal family after her highly televised wedding ceremony to Prince Harry. The Duchess worked with the new artistic director of Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller, to create a clean modern look for her wedding day. She also wore a tiara borrowed from the Queen, and her bouquet was made up of a few different flowers, some of which Prince Harry picked from their private garden. He included Princess Diana’s favorites, forget-me-nots.

The couple wed in their hometown of Virginia Beach at the Cavalier Hotel. Williams wore a floral embroidered dress by Marchesa for the ceremony and slipped into a sleek and simple Reem Acra for the reception. The seating of the ceremony was organized in a “runway style” and had a place for the couple to meet in the middle so that guests were on both sides of them.

 

7. Hilary Swank and Philip Schneider

The weeklong celebration makes this wedding maybe one of the most elaborate weddings of the year. The nuptials were full of love and tradition. Chopra’s gown, designed by Ralph Lauren, was paired with a 75-foot veil for their Christian ceremony. Chopra and Jonas both wore traditional Indian dress for their other ceremonies.
