From Solange Knowles to Liz Taylor; a look back at the best alternative wedding looks

The most important thing for many women when they're planning their big day is the dress. 

Obviously, you want to make sure you've got enough food and booze and that you're guests are happy too, but really, when it comes down to it you know that the dress is going to be one of the biggest wow moments of the day.

But with so much choice around, it's hard to make a decision on what you really want for your big moment, particularly if you're trying to avoid the classic strapless gown. 

From Gwen Stefani's pink dip-dyed Dior gown to Angelina Jolie's illustrated dress, we've put together a list of some of the coolest and most alternative celebrity wedding outfits to give you inspiration for your big day. 

And if you're not getting married, who cares? Pretty dresses are always fun to look at.
