Wedding Dresses: 15 Of The Best From Film And TV

There are no wedding dresses quite like the ones from all of our favourite film and TV shows.

Think the pilot episode of Friends when Rachel runs out of her wedding, Carrie Bradshaw's Vivienne Westwood gown and bizzare-o blue feather headpiece, Ariel's perfect puff-sleeved dress and Julia Roberts circa Steel Magnolias.


This is not about having the bride gene, though. This is about appreciating a really good dress that ticks both the meringue and fairytale princess boxes.

Disney is BIG on happy endings (The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Enchanted), and then there are those feel-good films you've seen a million times that you know every word to: Romeo & Juliet, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and The Sound of Music.

The 1980s was the era for trend-setting bridal style too and no one did sheer white lace and retro curls like Charlene Mitchell, aka Kylie Minogue in Neighbours circa 1987.

On screen wedding dresses are meant to be outstanding in every way (as is the hair, make up, decor.) That's what makes them so unforgettable.
