PRINCE CHARLES & LADY DIANA SPENCER

With 750 million people tuning in to watch worldwide, England's future king, 32, wed Spencer, 20, at St. Paul's Cathedral on July 29, 1981. The fashion icon walked down the aisle in a David and Elizabeth Emanuel gown that featured lace from Charles's great-grandmother, a 25-ft. train and an 18-kt. gold horseshoe sewn into the petticoats for good luck.
