Erica Mena and Bow Wow

Erica Mena and Bow Wow are either married or about to be married, depending on who you choose to believe. Bow Wow (aka Shad Moss) threw everyone for a loop when he shared a message on Facebook addressing Mena as "my wife."

Bow Wow further fueled the confusion by posting screenshots of Erica Mena's wedding dress. But a rep for the Love & Hip-Hop star quickly put the kibosh on rumors that they had a secret wedding.

Whatever the case, put all that aside for a second and feast your eyes on Mena's gorgeous wedding dress.

Kelis and Nas

If you bought Nas' Life Is Good, then you've already seen a piece of ex-wife Kelis' wedding dress. Kelis wore a celery-green wedding gown, while Nas opted for a stylish cream suit-and-vest combo. Nas held onto a piece of Kay's wedding dress after their divorce. It ended up on the cover of Life Is Good.

Nas told The Guardian: "I found it in my house and thought, it's going somewhere! Either on the cover of my album, or burning in a garbage can. I was angry when I first found it. Hurt and angry - but I don't think she left it deliberately to hurt me. It's just part of the dress, so I don't know where the rest of it is. But it made all the sense in the world for me to... Hold on to that. I guess that's just my personality."

Kelis told The New York Times that Nas was partially incorrect: "It’s not even the dress. The joke behind that is that it’s the slip to the petticoat to my dress. I think when I moved out I just left it. That’s all he had, poor thing.

Sadly, the marriage between Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa didn't last. Back in the good old days, though, the hip-hop couple looked stunning and wholesome on their wedding day. To mark their first anniversary, the couple shared a portrait with the world.

Amber Rose's wedding dress was a statement ensemble: a strapless, corseted gown courtesy of Pnina Tornai. It featured a voluminous skirt and lace ruffles and tulle. Amber accessorized with a diamond stud and a bejeweled headband.

Wiz Khalifa wasn't too shabby, either. The groom wore a magenta (fuchsia?) blazer, black pants and an orange calla lily boutonniere with an iced wrist.

Eudoxie and Ludacris

Eudoxie Wedding Dress

Ludacris (Chris Bridges) popped the question to longtime girlfriend Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue on Christmas Eve 2014. The couple tied the knot in Georgia on the same day. They had a simple ceremony at their home in front of a small group of friends and family.

"Why wait? Did the thing before 2015. #mrandmrsbridges," Ludacris captioned a photo of him and the new Mrs. Bridges.

Eudoxie's wedding dress was a gift she received four years prior to her big day, according to her Instagram snaps. She wore a floor-length halter gown that accentuated her curves. A thin tie cinches the waist, showing off her gorgeous figure.

Eudoxie shared pictures of the dress on Instagram with the caption: "Great way to go into the new year!"

Beyonce and Jay Z

Beyonce and Jay Z's wedding was one of the most guarded secrets in hip-hop. Everyone pretty much heard about the April 4, 2008 wedding in NYC. But there was nary a wedding photo in sight. No shots of the presumed celebrity guests. No pictures of the venue. Nothing. A few scraps of details and rumors here and there, but nothing tangible. A few wondered if the wedding actually happened.

Three years passed before Jay and Bey finally gave us a sneak peek of their special moment. In 2011, the music video for "I Was Here" debuted Beyonce's wedding dress--a strapless, flowing white wedding gown with an elaborate fitted back and a long train. The clip shows a two-second glimpse of Bey trying on her wedding gown before the big occasion.

Then again, on the opening night of their "On the Run" tour in Miami, Beyonce and Jay aired footage from their private ceremony. This time, we also got a glimpse of the groom as the power couple recited marital vows and exchanged rings. Bey has her hair in a sleek bun. Jay looked dapper in a tux, of course.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are fashionistas, so it's no surprise that they went all out for their wedding attire.

Kim turned heads in a form-fitting, Givenchy lace ensemble. Designed by the couple's close friend-slash Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, the wedding dress featured long sleeves, sheer panels, an entirely sheer back and a long train. Kimi completed the look with ivory satin four-inch heels designed by Giuseppe Zanotti. The wedding dress is said to be valued at about $500,000. Kanye wore a classic tux and bowtie.

Kanye later revealed that Kim's wedding gown was supposed to match the floral backdrop of their wedding photo. The problem was further complicated when photographer Annie Leibovitz pulled out of shooting the wedding a day before the Florence ceremony.

"So we sat there and worked on that photo for four days – because the flowers were off-color and stuff like that," 'Ye said, referring to the couple's first official wedding photo, which was eventually released on Kim's Instagram account after some post-production editing.

"Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the number one person on Instagram, “We need to work on the color of the flower wall”, or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci - and how important Kim is to the internet," says Mr. West.

Bonus: Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson

Solange is not a rapper, but she's a DJ and a member of the hip-hop family. So her wedding to Alan Ferguson deserves an honorable mention.

Put it this way: Solo and Ferguson broke every wedding rule in the book. They wore six different outfits in various shades of ivory and alabaster. They wore matching colors. And they rode to their wedding on bicycles. BICYCLES! That's some comic book stuff. NY Post crowned it "the most seriously stylish wedding since George and Amal Clooney."

Oh, and it turns out Khaleesi takes cues from Solange?
