Ever wondered who the designer was behind that fabulous dress your saw in that movie? Well, we have put together a selection of our favourite wedding dresses from films and television programs. Take a look back at these beauties.


Kate Hudson

In 2009’s Bride Wars, Hudson’s Liv Lerner (in Vera Wang) married Daniel Williams (Steve Howey). “You don’t alter Vera to fit you, you alter yourself to fit Vera!” Hudson’s character said in the movie!


Leighton Meester

Blair Waldorf married Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl’s finale episode. She is seen in this stunning Elie Saab dress from her Spring 2012 collection. A long sleeved, pale blue boatneck gown, fully embellished with sequins and floral appliqués, accented at the waist with a matching skinny belt. To finish it off with a trademark diamond-encrusted leaf tiara.


Katherine Heigl

Heigl’s Dr. Izzie Stevens wore a Kenneth Pool gown when she married Dr. Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) on Grey’s Anatomy in 2009. It was the same dress her colleague, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), had tried on for her wedding to Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey).


Sarah Jessica Parker

In 2008’s Sex and the City, flanked by her three best friends Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw (in Vivienne Westwood) had planned to marry Big (Chris Noth) in the New York Public Library. She never made it down the aisle, but Carrie finally became a Mrs. at New York City Hall.


Kristen Stewart

For her walk down the aisle, Stewart’s Bella Swan wore a custom-designed Carolina Herrera gown in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 in 2011. “It is always a great pleasure to design any wedding gown, but this one was particularly special,” Herrera told US Magazine.
