We know how stressful planning a wedding can be so we thought about writing this blog post to give you some #weddingdress inspiration. From The Sound of Music to Sex and the City, we made a list with the most iconic wedding dresses in movies.
Father of the Bride
Both versions of this movie have dresses worth to be remembered. In the 1950 version, Elizabeth Taylor wears a stunning lace and silk dress made by the Academy Award-winning designer Helen Rose, who you might recognise since she also designed the amazing dress that Grace Kelly wore to her wedding.
In the most recent version, Kimberly Williams wears a lace and satin ball gown, which reflects the 90’s trend to perfection.
Romeo and Juliet
A comedy that tells the story of two best friends that ended up with the same wedding date (and venue) and their on-going fight. Kate Hudson, who plays Liv, wore a classic tulle wedding dress with a greyish lilac silk ribbon tied around her waist from Vera Wang. Emma, played by Anne Hathaway, wore a timeless and romantic silk dress.
Kate Hudson’s dress sold out almost instantly after the film hit the theatre.
The Princess Diaries 2
Keira Knightley, who plays Juliet, wore a peculiar design to walk down the aisle while a choir performed “All You Need is Love”. The dress was sheer and had feathers around the neckline (that matched her headdress), which would be a great inspiration for those unconventional brides.
Sex and the City
If anyone talks about a TV Show-then-movie that was a fashion setter, you will be sure to think about Sex and the City. In the first movie, Carrie, the main character and IT girl, is planning her wedding with her beloved Mr Big after he proposed with a unique black diamond engagement ring. She first wants a small and simple wedding for which she has found the most perfect outfit: a vintage silk two-piece suit. She then gets carried away and her intimate wedding becomes a subject of public matter so, after trying some of the most amazing dresses, she chooses a Vivienne Westwood silk dress with a pointy neckline. Carrie matches the dress with a peculiar headpiece that emulates a bird.
After a lot of ups and downs, she ends up getting married wearing the elegant and simple outfit.
Audrey Hepburn, who plays Jo Stockton, wore to her wedding an iconic tulle and satin dress designed by the late Hubert de Givenchy that still serves as inspiration for every bride-to-be.
