Our Favorite TV Wedding Dresses
Who doesn’t love a TV wedding? There have been dozens – and even more when you count brides trying on their dresses, getting ready for their weddings and then the weddings never actually happening. While we couldn’t compile every single television wedding dress, here are some of our favorite and most memorable tv wedding dresses.
Downton Abbey – We begin with one of our favorite shows on TV today. Yes, its a period drama, but with the show’s popularity and the upcoming Great Gatsby movie, 20s style is very on trend. Both Lady Mary and Lady Edith’s simple long sleeved wedding dresses were custom made for the show. And how much do we adore those sparkly headpieces!
Friends – We loved the Monica – Chandler wedding episode. Courtney Cox wore a simple sheath gown from House of Bianchi (no longer in business) for her wedding to Chandler, while Phoebe’s dress was from St. Pucci.
Sex and the City – Charlotte married twice on Sex and the City – for her first she wore a Vera Wang strapless ballgown and the second time she wore a beautiful white silk Badgley Mishka gown.
Grey’s Anatomy: This is one show we couldn’t keep up with, but there certainly were lots of wedding moments. Christina wore Kenneth Pool’s Lana dress for her wedding that she ran out on, while Callie and Arizona wore beautiful Amsale gowns. Izzie walked down the aisle in another Kenneth Pool creation (incidentally the same dress Meredith had tried on an earlier episode).
The Ringer – It was a short lived series on the CW, but the Reem Acra wedding gown Sarah Michelle Gellar’s character wore was just lovely.
Gossip Girl – We stuck with Gossip Girl for the duration of the series and while some seasons were a struggle to get through, we couldn’t get enough of the fashion. Leighton Meester’s character, Blair, wears two Vera Wang creations for her first wedding (the royal one), both of which were stunning, but if we’re being honest, we expected more. We were not disappointed, however, with her jaw-droppingly gorgeous icy blue Elie Saab gown for her wedding to Chuck Bass during the series finale. Always one for the dramatic, Blake Lively’s character wears a gold Georges Chakra couture ballgown and her TV mom wears a Vera Wang gown for her season 2 finale wedding.
Will & Grace: When Grace married Harry Connick Jr.’s character, she wore this very classic strapless $20,000 Vera Wang gown.
Brothers and Sisters: We never got into this show, but we do love Calista Flockhart’s Kitty romantic capped sleeve dress and Emily Van Camp’s (Rebecca) simple beach sheath!
Revenge: This might be one of our favorite dresses and it looks absolutely stunning on Madeline Stowe (well, everything does). It’s a gorgeous gray hue, also from Vera Wang.
Private Practice: For some reason this dress is not as flattering as we would have liked on Addison, but we love the fact that it is another silver hued dress, a trend that we are big fans of.
Glee: Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry looks chic and sophisticated in her tea length wedding dress (an homage to Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face). Emma actually wears a number of dresses on the show, never to actually get married. We love her lacy Vera Wang gown.
Hart of Dixie: It’s a CW show starring Rachel Bilson that I doubt many people watch, but we thought this dress worn by Jamie King’s character was beyond pretty – chunky necklace and all. It’s Monique Lhuillier’s Flutter dress from her Spring 2012 collection. The girls also wear Monique Lhuiller dresses in a dream sequence, with ore beautiful bold necklaces to match. Love!
Ugly Betty: This is the episode where Posh Spice (our favorite) makes a cameo as Vanessa Williams’ character’s maid of honor. Here, Williams wears a sleek Vera Wang gown down the aisle.
