With the year coming to a close, it’s clear that 2018 has been one for romance.

Read through for a recap of 10 of the most talked-about weddings of 2018.
Undoubtedly the wedding of the year, the royal nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made headlines across the globe in May. They got married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, with the bride wearing that Givenchy wedding dress designed by Clare Waight Keller.
The second royal wedding of the year saw Princess Eugenie marry her long-term partner Jack Brooksbank, also at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. She proudly wore a Peter Pilotto gown with a low back, to show her scar from childhood surgery.
The Best Hollywood Wedding of the Year
Hilary Swank and Philip Schneider – The Oscar winner and her social venture entrepreneur beau tied the knot in August. “It was timeless. There is just no other way to describe it, ” Swank told Vogue. “I was overwhelmed with such gratitude and thanks to be marrying the man of my dreams and to see all the people we love together in the middle of such a profound setting. It was truly a dream come true.”
It was gorgeous. The wedding happened at the Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel, California. And from what Hilary shared exclusively with Vogue, “It’s a stunning private community surrounded by 20,000 acres of conservancy and an intimate redwood grove populated with trees that are over 800 years old.”
The bride wore custom Elie Saab Couture. And supposedly the dress, which we’ve only been able to peep pictures of on , took 150 hours to confection (nearly half of which was spent on embroidery alone, OMG).
And stunned in a second easy-breezy change-out dress. Which was a custom-made, cream-colored Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior dance dress, worn with a blazer.
Dear friend, Christian Louboutin, did the shoes. Both for the wedding and the best surprise… see below.
Mariska Hargitay played a real great MOH. Opposite the groom’s father as Best Man – which we’re also obsessed with, obvi.
The reception took place in a beautifully-lit, rustic barn. Guests dined on delicious sustainable fare a gluten-free/vegan chocolate cake flown in from Mexico City, and danced to a scintillating jazz band – they had such a great time that the dancing continued late into the night via a silent disco-style after-party.
Thia is the Band that Played at Hilary’s Wedding
