Chelsea, Alicia, Hilary, Megan, Katy -- there were tons of celebrity brides this year and just as many unique styles to go with them. Here, WeddingChannel.com dishes on the best (and worst!) of the most notorious celeb weddings of 2010.

Best: Chelsea Clinton's Wedding
From the location to the flowers, the cake to her unforgettable Vera Wang dress, Chelsea Clinton's wedding to Marc Mezvinsky lived up to all of the hype. The late July wedding held in Rhinebeck, New York, included around 400 guests and yet somehow managed to still seem intimate and family-focused. We give extra props to Chelsea for handling the constant press attention with total grace: The family released five photos and a statement after the wedding, ending all speculation and quelling our curiosity.
Worst: Hilary Duff's Wedding
There's "over-the-top" and then there's Hilary Duff's wedding to hockey star and Canadian millionaire heir Mike Comrie. The couple threw a lavish bash and spared no expense -- especially when it came to hawking every single wedding photo to the tabloids. In terms of style, Hilary's sky-high hairstyle doesn't exactly make the top of our lists, but then again, neither do the favors that read "Complients" of Mr. & Mrs. C (remember, brides: spell-check is key!). After her wedding photos hit newsstands, rumors emerged that due to underperforming sales of the magazine, her contract was even renegotiated for less money. Ouch! Then again, we're sure having that 14-carat-diamond engagement ring softens the blow.Get a red carpet wedding without the cost
Best: Megan Fox's Wedding
The brunette bombshell married her on-again, off-again fiance, Brian Austin Green, in a private beach ceremony where Green's 8-year-old son, Kassius, was the only attendant. Not only did the mega-celeb manage to have a private wedding just like she wanted, she looked effortlessly stylish in an Armani Prive white gown with a 16-foot train. The couple kept things personal and though some reports said it was a spur-of-the-moment decision, we like to think they were just focused on the most important part of the wedding: the marriage itself.
Worst: Bethenny Frankel's Wedding
While we think it's awesome that Bethenny chose to rock her baby bump in a figure-hugging Amsale gown, there's this one moment we just can't get past: Bethenny peeing in a bucket on national television. If not one of the lowest points of the wedding, it had to be one of the lowest points of reality TV. And though she managed to keep her wedding (pretty much) drama free (not all of her "Housewives" costars made the guest list), she could have opted for a more fashionable wedding exit than wearing an all-white tracksuit.Browse 100s of wedding dress styles here!
Best: Alicia Keys's WeddingFrom the picturesque Mediterranean setting to Alicia's incredible 60-carat custom headpiece from jewelry guru Jacob & Co., everything about this wedding got our attention. The bride donned a one-shoulder Vera Wang gown, while the groom, Swizz Beatz, looked chic in a white Tom Ford tuxedo. Aside from the stylish attire, the wedding also included a luxurious red-themed reception, with outdoor tables, gold chairs and large candelabra as centerpieces.
Worst: Heidi Montag's Wedding
They might be calling it their first "real" wedding, but it's actually the third time faux-lebrities Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have tied the knot. (For those keeping count, they first eloped in Mexico, then wed very publicly on "The Hills.") Aside from holding a new wedding every five minutes, the whole event was further cheapened by the confession that Speidi's supposed "divorce" proceedings over the summer were totally faked as a publicity stunt. Add that to Heidi's drastic plastic surgery (followed by her plastic surgery regrets) and you end up with a made-for-TV segment that no one really cares about.
Best: Katy Perry's Wedding
From the moment of their romantic New Year's Eve engagement in India, we expected big things to come from Katy Perry's wedding to British comedian Russell Brand. And while the couple didn't disappoint, they also kept things relatively "normal." Despite rumors of baby tigers and elephant entrances, Russell told a British talk show, "Everyone gets all worked up about showbiz and celebrity [weddings], but... it's normal. It's just a normal marriage." The couple, who are now rocking matching micro pave diamond wedding bands, hosted Hollywood's elite at their wedding -- but don't expect to see any photos. Russell and Katy have both said they're keeping those "private and normal" as well.
