15 Movie Wedding Dresses That Make So Much Sense, We’ll Want To Rewatch Them
There is no moment that’s more anticipated in a movie or TV show than the wedding of our favorite characters. Besides the ceremony and the romance that fills our hearts with joy, a mega-important detail is the dress worn by the bride. Some are simple and others more extravagant, but each creation is undoubtedly a true fashion statement.
1. Fran Fine, The Nanny
The Nanny is a show that captured the hearts of viewers worldwide. Fran Fine’s adventures with the Sheffield family remain beloved, as does her unique fashion sense. While many of her outfits are beautiful, one of her most outstanding achievements is undoubtedly her wedding dress.
The actress, Fran Dresher, chose the design, who said she felt as if she was preparing for her own wedding. The stunning dress cost about 12,000 USD and had a long veil and a 50-inch train.
2. Margaret Tale, The Proposal
In The Proposal, Sandra Bullock plays Margaret, an executive who becomes falsely engaged to her assistant, Andrew, to avoid legal trouble. When the couple plans an impromptu wedding, Margaret wears a dress that originally belonged to her fiancé’s grandmother. It’s classic and modern at the same time, with a high neckline and a champagne color that Sandra looked great in.
3. Shelby, Steel Magnolias
In Steel Magnolias, starring a group of women from a southern town, we find several heartwarming moments. One of the sweetest is the wedding of Shelby, played by Julia Roberts. To walk down the aisle, she wears a dress with bare shoulders and adorned with flowers. In addition, a big pink bow completes the pompous outfit.
4. Elle Woods, Legally Blonde 2
Elle Woods returns in Legally Blonde 2 to hook us again with her legal adventures. In this installment, she is determined to take down a cosmetics company that tests on dogs. In addition to watching her fight for animal rights, at the end of the film, we get to enjoy her wedding to Emmet.
It comes as no surprise to viewers that Elle Wood chose to get married wearing her signature color, pink. Her delicate dress only reaffirmed the opinion that it is not always necessary to wear white to look angelic on our wedding day.
5. Scarlet Witch, WandaVision
WandaVision mixes a sitcom with an intricate Marvel-style story. In the opening, we see Wanda and Vision starting their married life in an era similar to the 1950s. Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda, looked stunning in a classic and simple dress that was an homage to Audrey Hepburn.
6. Pam Beesley, The Office
Jim and Pam’s wedding was a big event for fans of The Office. From the beginning of the series, the chemistry between the two characters was palpable, but we had to wait several seasons before their relationship officially began.
For her big day, Pam opted for a floor-length ruffled chiffon dress. Unlike other small screen brides, she made her simplicity visible with this outfit, which was also very affordable. It cost less than 400 USD, and the wedding will always be remembered as one of the most anticipated and beautiful on television.
7. Topanga Lawrence, Boy Meets World
Boy Meets World is a comedy series that aired on Disney Channel between 1993 and 2000. There we see Cory and his friends grow until they’re off to college. Viewers were even part of Cory and Topanga’s wedding. That important event was held in the last season, and the bride wore a beautiful dress that accentuated her curves.
8. Meg March, Little Women
Little Women is a story about the lives of four sisters during the 19th century, based on the classic book of the same name. In the film, Emma Watson plays Meg March, the eldest of the sisters. She has a dream wedding with John, the tutor of her friend Laurie. For the occasion, Meg wore a simple and youthful wedding dress with a flower crown that made her look even cuter.
9. Micaela Quinn, Dr. Quinn
Dr. Quinn lasted 6 seasons, but will be fondly remembered by many generations. The story introduces Micaela, a woman that leaves Boston to start a new life in the west. There she not only finds a new home but also discovers true love with Sully, who ends up becoming her husband.
Jane Seymour, who played Dr. Quinn, found the fabric to make her character’s wedding dress herself. In addition, it was inlaid with pearls that had to be bought in India. The actress said that she liked the outfit better than her wedding dress.
10. Emma Woodhouse, Emma
Gwyneth Paltrow starred in the movie Emma, based on the novel of the same name. The story takes place in the early 19th century, when Emma spends her time trying to match her acquaintances, forgetting about her own love life. However, in the end, she marries her friend, Mr. Knightley, who has always had feelings for her.
Her wedding dress was made of silk crepe and embroidered with a small twig pattern. The costume designer explained that in creating the dress, she wanted to evoke the happiness of the English countryside on a sunny day. Without a doubt, she succeeded.
11. Claire Fraser, Outlander
Claire stars in Outlander, a drama in which she is caught between two historical periods. To protect herself, she must marry Jamie, and, before long, the two end up falling madly in love. Claire wears a fairy tale gray dress that glows in the candlelight for the wedding.
When creating it, Terry Dresbach, the show’s designer, wanted a dress that the audience could fall in love with without abandoning the 18th-century style. The embroidery on the corset was made with metal, and, as a whole, the entire outfit added to the romance of the bridal scene.
12. Lady D, The Crown
Just as the wedding dress worn by the real Princess of Wales is unforgettable, the replica used by Emma Corrin to play her in The Crown will also go down in television history. During season 4 of the drama series, the most anticipated character, the beloved Lady Di, appears, and we are part of her big royal wedding.
Recreating the dress was a 14-week job, and the designer wanted to achieve the same grandeur as the original. So they worked with the same company that created the royal attire. The resemblance of the dress was such that everyone was speechless the moment Emma Corrin showed up in it.
13. Buttercup, The Princess Bride
The Princess Bride is an epic story about how the most beautiful woman in the world and a perfect farmer, Westley, meet. Buttercup, the princess, is forcibly betrothed to Prince Humperdinck, but her heart belongs to Westley.
Although this situation is a bit problematic, we can’t forget the wonderful wedding dress. This light blue gown adorned with pearls and lace is perfect for the medieval period of the film and is certainly fit for a princess.
14. Margaery Tyrell, Game of Thrones
This Margaery outfit is the essence of her style, combining femininity with inner strength. The light and delicate gown is embroidered with roses at the neckline and open back. This time, however, the delicate roses have thorns, with which the corset of the dress is generously adorned. Essentially, the gown speaks for itself — once Margaery becomes queen, she has no plans to stay in the shadows and be an obedient wife and daughter-in-law. And along with this, one can see here an attempt to protect herself in advance from her husband.
Margaery’s ambition is to become a full-fledged ruler; she does not want to submit to anyone, including her new spouse, which she seeks to emphasize already at the wedding. The choice is made for a tall wedding hairstyle, making Margaery taller than her fiancé/husband — already at the wedding, she is keen to demonstrate to everyone that she has no intention of being subservient.
15. Araminta, Crazy Rich Asians
In Jon M. Chu’s adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians, the wedding dress worn by Araminta is a showstopper created by costume designer Mary Vogt.
Thousands of gold Swarovski crystals adorn the bodice of the dress — after all, it’s the biggest wedding in Asia. And while the dress is flowing in embroidery and tulle and lace, Araminta walks down the aisle barefoot. Why? Because she’s walking on water. It’s a majestic movie moment that captures the very essence of the film: crazy and rich.
