Who doesn’t love a good wedding dress?
** Me, writing this list from lockdown **
13. Sophie in Mamma Mia!
Bohemian, embroidered and covered in tulle. This dress is a little chaotic in its design, but is the perfect rustic aesthetic for a Greek Island wedding. Extra points for the flower crown, and riding to the chapel on a donkey.
12. Jo in Funny Face (1957)
When will mid-calf wedding dresses come back into fashion? This couture dress, with its stunning silhouette, is simple, elegant and absolutely iconic. Extra points for the satin gloves and matching slippers. Gorgeous.
11. Katniss in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Whilst Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) never actually wears this dress to get married in this film, the presentation of it at the Capitol is a pivotal moment of this film. With its tiers of tulle, and metallic silver embellishments on the bodice, this dress is absolutely jaw dropping. Extra points for the fact it bursts into flame and turns into a sexy black mockingjay style dress when she spins.
10. Jennifer Lopez in Monster In Law
Simply stunning. Jennifer Lopez has worn a lot of wedding dresses throughout her acting career, but this one, with its figure hugging bodice, decolletage and elbow length white gloves, is simply stunning.
9. Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With The Wind
Whilst Scarlett O’Hara’s 19th century dress probably wouldn’t be worn today, it is absolutely iconic. This marriage may not have lasted in the film… but this dress is forever.
8.Tracy in High Society
A less-well known choice, but this calf-length dress, with sheer flower-embroidered sleeves, gloves and a matching hat is glorious!
7. Fleur in Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows Part I
Couture, gothic and romantic. I am OBSESSED with this dress that Fleur wears in the penultimate Harry Potter film.
6. Elizabeth Swann in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Elizabeth Swann’s wedding dress from the second Pirates of the Caribbean film is a wonderful confection of cream lace and embroidery. Yes, the style is decidedly 18th century, but would I wear it in 2021, for sure! Extra points for the matching flowers in her hair.
5. Jasmine in Aladdin (2019)
More wedding dresses need pops of colour in them. This aqua, cream and gold traditional wedding gown is so beautiful. Extra points for the dance routine she does wearing it, which cinches this dress a place in the Top 5.
4. Cinderella in Cinderella (2015)
OBSESSED. This dress is a princess fantasy manifest.
3. Carrie in Sex and the City: The Movie
Coming in at number 3: Carrie’s Vera Wang wedding dress from the first Sex and the City movie. With it’s meringue-like frothy skirt, cream and white layers, and peacock feather headpiece this dress is instantly memorable.
2. Grace in Ready Or Not
This Grace Kelly inspired dress with its lace bodice and tulle skirt begins the film as an elegant and sophisticated bridal look. However, it’s Grace’s mid-film bridal look, with her yellow converse, and vintage hunting gun, that truly makes this dress iconic, and earns it the Number 2 spot on this list. Fun fact: there were actually 24 dresses worn by Grace (Samara Weaving) and her stunt double during the course of this film.
1. Araminta in Crazy Rich Asians
Coming in at Number 1 on this list is the glorious pastels and gold tiered dress worn by Araminta during the wedding scene in this film. Extra iconic: her thigh high gold glitter boots.
