So you might have heard that this weekend the wedding of the century is scheduled to take place. Of course we're talking about the union of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. There has been plenty of speculation about what Kim will wear as she has been spotted visiting Balmain, Lanvin and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy, sparking speculation that they might be her choice of designers. Kim has taken to Twitter however to emphasise that no one has seen her dress yet.

While we wait to see Kimmy K's frock let's take a look at the best dresses of all time, shall we? The gallery above is a frothy treat, filled with Chanel Haute Couture, Valentino and Vera Wang delights. Special mentions must to go to the following brides for their jaw-dropping gowns.

First up, we have to congratulate Kate Moss for her dreamy John Galliano bias-cut slip dress, with a swirling hemline and delicate embellishment. Like her engagement ring, it was inspired by Zelda Fitzgerald. Mossy has said that she was looking for "a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind. I've lived in his dresses for years, and they just make me feel so comfortable. But it's so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that's going into the dress!" It's the gown that dreams were made of.

Then we come to the Chanel brides. Lily Allen, Poppy Delevingne, Keira Knightley and Caroline Seiber all wed in one-of-a-kind Karl creations. Poppy Delevingne got married in a Chanel white gown with elegant capped sleeves, delicate embellishment and camellias on the sleeves. Later in the evening the stylista revealed quite the party trick; her wedding dress skirt was ripped off to leave her with just a mini dress. How very practical.

You'd think if you had a Chanel original you'd keep it in a treasured box, but Lily Allen somehow managed to loose her £200,000 wedding gown. GULP.

We can't talk about weddings without mentioning The Duchess of Cambridge who wore an Alexander McQueen masterpiece designed by Sarah Burton. The curator of the wedding dress exhibition at the V&A said to Grazia Daily: 'It was and is very influential. I'm pretty confident that the current vogue for lace was triggered by her wedding dress. It had a huge global influence. We'll all remember that dress and she looked very happy in it and relaxed and confident. The dress looked right for her and the occasion.'
