With news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are married (SURPRISE!) we started thinking about the many, many celebrity weddings we've witnessed over the years.

And man, have we witnessed a lot of celebrity weddings!

Some stars have even managed to get married more than once recently coughKimK​cough leading us to take a look at some of the best celebrity wedding dresses we've ever seen:

Kate Middleton Wedding Dress
Wow. That's all we can say about Kate Middleton's wedding dress. She looks simply stunning.

Regardless, when brides like Kate Middleton step out in front of the cameras, the world takes notice. Likewise with famous faces such as Kaley Cuoco and Kim Kardashian.

It's no surprise that their fancy frocks fuel an entire industry, because what woman doesn't want to look like a LITERAL princess on her big day?

The Bachelorette has just wrapped its 10th season, with Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray engaged, moving in together, over the moon and talking about a spring wedding.

Will the Atlanta lovebirds actually make it to the altar, however?

The very first woman to star as The Bachelorette, Trista Sutter (nee Rehn), married her final rose recipient. She remains the franchise's standard-bearer.

After Trista came a long dry spell of ill-fated romances which fizzled, some after a relatively decent amount of time and others very, very quickly.

Two of the last three Bachelorette stars prior to Andi are in long-term relationships, however, as the reality show is experiencing a recent renaissance.

Where will she and Josh rank when all is said and done?

Check out this list of the 10 Bachelorette stars ranked by relationship length and see what kind of competition the ABC show's latest love match is up against:

Former star of The Bachelorette Ashley Hebert is pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband and 2011 final rose recipient, J.P. Rosenbaum.

The self-described "cool dentist," Hebert first won hearts as a contestant on Brad Womack's season of The Bachelor (the second), only to finish in third place.

Ashley Hebert, 29, later went on to star on The Bachelorette, where she first met J.P. Rosenbaum, 36. He proposed in Fiji on the finale, and they wed in 2012.

Their wedding was aired on ABC, just like Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici nuptials earlier this year. The couple now lives together in New Jersey.

"Whenever we're around each other, it's just easy and comfortable and fun," Rosenbaum famously said on the show. "It's a chemistry you can't ignore."

"It's just there."

Dreams do come true. At least 10-20 percent of the time.

Fans know that a final rose does not guarantee a lifetime of happiness, but The Bachelor has produced some couples that have stood the test of time. At least lately.

And with Juan Pablo Galavis' season in full swing, ABC caught us up on some of its recent success stories as part of its "Juan-uary" series of Sunday specials.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are set to tie the knot next weekend. They were one of the duos featured on The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories last night.

The others:

Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum
Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum are married. He won her heart on The Bachelorette.

  • Trista Rehn married fireman Ryan Sutter in a ceremony that was televised in 2003. Still the gold standard for the show, over a decade later.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. The most recent Bachelorette picked Chris at the end of Season 9 last year. They're still engaged.
  • Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. After she chose J.P. on The Bachelorette Season 7 finale, Ashley married J.P. in December 2012.
  • Molly and Jason Mesnick. Jason was engaged to Melissa Rycroft, but dumped her for runner-up (and now-wife) Molly on the After the Final Rose special. Close enough.

Will Juan Pablo end up in the success or failure column? The Bachelor spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested ... but the odds are not good.

That's like five success stories in like 27 seasons. Just saying.

Courtney Robertson's tear-filled, apologetic display on The Bachelor: Women Tell All special was a sight to behold ... though not necessarily in a good way.

What did last season's Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert, think about it?

"I didn't even want to watch," Ashley told E! about the Women Tell All special. "It made me just want to turn it off. It was just like a typical sorority party."

"Everyone fights; I thought people were going to start throwing shoes at each other. It was crazy! I actually do believe Courtney's tears were genuine."

"She apologized from some place in her heart. Was she sorry for hurting the girls? I don't know. For making herself look like a mean girl? I think that's what it is."

Ashley Hebert continued her sort-of-defense of Courtney Robertson:

"I think she did learn and she feels apologetic, but I also feel like the only reason she's apologizing is because of the backlash she's getting from the media."

"Not just the media, but friends, family, everyone. Everyone hates her."

Former Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert, who famously rejected Ben Flajnik, is trying to give Courtney Robertson the benefit of the doubt. She really is.

But while Ash admits she didn't find Court as despicable as usual on this week's episode of The Bachelor, she's totally calling her out for one thing:

Ripping off her so-called heartfelt vows from Sex and the City!

"First of all, I do have to say that Courtney's ceremony was a little bit of a rip-off idea - because we did that on my season, with William," recalls Hebert.

"And she blatantly stole her vows from Sex and the City!"

In their faux wedding, Courtney memorably told Ben, "I am looking for love. Real love. Passionate, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."

Sarah Jessica Parker said, "I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."

Remember? To Mikhail Baryshnikov, from the series finale? When Carrie breaks it off with the Russian? Right before Big tracks her down in Paris?

Anyway, Ashley Hebert is like the rest of us - flummoxed by Courtney.

"A classic case of mean-girlism." Ashley Hebert on The Bachelor

The effervescent Hebert, a former contestant on The Bachelor herself before going on to be The Bachelorette, weighed in on the current season's craziness this week.

"I have so many thoughts on last night's show," she told E! "First of all, how mean can these girls be?! It was a classic case of mean-girlism, that's all I have to say."

Of the other girls' "below the belt" comments, Ash says, "I cannot believe the way Shawntel was treated by some of the other girls. It absolutely blows my mind."

Ashley Hebert feels the women exercised "bad judgment" and urged them to "have a good experience, get to know the other girls, form friendships, you know?"

"That's probably what you're going to take away from all this."

In other words, there's only one winner. Get used to the idea.

After all, "What guy wants to be with a girl that's nasty to other people?" Hebert mused.

"You want the girl that you're with to, you know, get along with your friends, get along with your family ... it's not really a good indication of that."

"It's almost as if they're being competitive. If you're in this to be competitive and to beat everyone else, then you're kind of wasting everyone's time."

In other words, no one wants to be with Courtney Robertson.

She's a fourth-year grad student at the University of Pennsylvania, who will return to school after The Bachelorette and finish dental school this fall.
