The most sentimental items worn by famous brides: Princess Beatrice, Priyanka Chopra, more

These brides followed the tradition of 'Something old...'

As the tradition goes, brides should wear 'Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue' on their wedding day, which some follow more closely than others. Royal bride Princess Beatrice closely followed the tradition for her surprise royal wedding in July, wearing a beautiful family heirloom, a Norman Hartnell dress belonging to her grandmother, the Queen.

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley has worn her wedding dress on several occasions

Like Princess Beatrice, Keira Knightley opted to wear an old dress for her wedding to musician James Righton. However, rather than being a family heirloom, her Chanel dress was simply a piece she loved to wear – and has continued to wear after her wedding. Speaking to ELLE about her choice of wedding dress, the Pirates of the Caribbean star explained: "Every time I've worn that dress, I've had a fantastic night and if you've got a dress where you've always had a fantastic night, it's worth having another fantastic night in it." Sounds like good logic to us.
