A season everyone looks forward to every single year has to be – “The Wedding Season.” Everything about it seems so magical, from Venue picking to the menu tasting to cake selection, to choosing bridesmaids and best men, every aspect of a wedding. As nerve-wracking as it can be, it is so worth the pain when the bride and the groom come together and say their tear-jerking vows and “I do’s.
But what undeniably always captures any wedding attendee’s attention is the bride walking down the aisle in her wedding outfit, making everyone in awe of how radiant she looks.
For decades now, women have taken everyday outfit inspiration from the many Sitcoms and Movies which have garnered our screens, and Wedding outfit inspiration doesn’t fall short.
Here’s presenting some of the most iconic wedding outfit looks that women have taken inspiration from and can continue to take inspiration from in the coming years due to how classy these really are.
1 Daisy Buchannan- The Great Gatsby
Turns out Flapper girl outfits from the movie for Halloween aren’t all that’s been taken inspiration from. It also caused a resurgence of the 1920s-inspired bridal revolution. In recent years, brides have drawn inspiration for their D-day from Daisy Buchannan’s cap sleeves in chiffon with an overall streamlined silhouette complimented with a delicate jeweled headband. A look so fabulous, its costume designer Catherine Martin was honored with an Oscar for her outstanding work.
2 Araminta Lee – Crazy Rich Asians
For a wedding as stellar and big as the star cast of the Jon M. Chu adaptation of “Crazy Rich Asians,” costume designer Mary Vogt sure didn’t disappoint.
The colorful Swarovski crystals studded jumpsuit adorned by Araminta Lee (Sonoya Mizuno) gave an illusion of a gown featuring an embroidered tulle with lace and a 10-foot train, allowing the bride easy movement as she walks down the aisle barefooted on a watered surface at one of the dreamiest wedding venues ever created.
3 Maria Von Trapp – The Sound of Music
As the movie approaches its second half, we see Maria Von Trapp (Julie Andrews) ditch her uniform to slip into a wedding dress. Elegant and modest in its structure, made with Satin paired with a simple veil and embellished headband, the attire remains one of the most iconic wedding outfits ever. So much so that it was auctioned off at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills in Fall 2020.
4 Blair Waldorf – Gossip Girl
Not even Serena could upstage Queen Blair Waldorf in drama and fashion in the American- drama series “Gossip Girl.”
So, when she decided to wed Chuck Bass in a quick low-key Central Park ceremony, she went “all classic Blair’ and chose to wear an Elie Saab Couture floor-length hand-beaded gown in baby blue.
5Cece Parekh – New Girl
A drunken purchase made with Winston, before the gorgeousness viewers witnessed, Cece’s wedding dress was a tacky, light-up dress which later maid of honor Jess transformed thanks to her crafty teacher brain.
For the Hindu-Jewish ceremony and the show’s makers wanted to represent Cece’s culture, costume designer Debra McGuire modified the dress by turning it inside out, adding a train giving Cece a gold veil bordered by red that added to the Indian elements of the wedding. The thought behind creating this makes it a more memorable wedding outfit on television for being the first of its kind, showing proper cultural appreciation.
