There are brides - and then there are $2 million brides.

That's how much you'll need to cough up if you want to rock this wedding dress from American fashion designer Reem Acra, who showed off her new Spring 2018 bridal collection, in collaboration with Tiffany & Co, in New York City on Wednesday.

Held at the Tiffany flagship store on Fifth Avenue, the $2.14 million ($US1.61m) dress was embroidered with Tiffany diamond drop earrings, dragonfly brooches, and giant butterflies.

Altogether, the jewellery comes out to a whopping 165 carats of diamonds and 61.91 carats of gemstones.

Today we celebrate the glamour of a woman, and empowering women. All of this is really inspired by the Tiffany's woman," Acra told Women's Wear Daily.

"It's a woman that's empowered, sexy, powerful, you name it. Who doesn't want to look like this?"

According to a recent survey from online retailer Lyst, the average bride spends around $1000 on her wedding dress.

Australian couples spend a total amount, on average, of $65,482 on their big day, according to a May survey from Bride to Be magazine.
