Movie Weddings: Get the Look
Obsessed with Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic Vivienne Westwood wedding dress? Do you love Katniss’ metallic Mockingjay gown? These days, more and more brides are getting their wedding inspiration from their favourite movies. So, we’ve created a list of a few of our favourite movie weddings and some dresses that you can buy to steal the bride’s look. Looking Hollywood-ready has never been this easy!
1) Bella, Breaking Dawn
When it comes to Bella’s minimalist wedding dress, it’s all about the details at the back. We love the full-length sleeves and the effortless, body-skimming cut of the dress. We think that this beautiful Benjamin Roberts dress with lace and mesh detailing perfectly captures the simple elegance of Bella’s bridal look.
2) Liv, Bride Wars
We are seriously obsessed with Liv’s fairytale inspired wedding dress! To achieve this look you need a ‘fit and flare’ dress with a slightly dropped waist. This sumptuous Mori Lee gown is the perfect choice for a bride who loves Liv’s ballgown shaped dress and wants to capture the graceful appearance of the gathered organza skirt against the fitted bodice.
3) Ariel, The Little Mermaid
This is definitely a dress for a bride who loves a traditional, extravagant bridal look. It’s all about the billowing sleeves and the ballgown-style skirt. For a modern take on this classic dress, we love this glitzy Lillian West gown with a statement tulle skirt. You’ll look like a Disney Princess come to life in this gorgeous take on Ariel’s iconic dress.
4) Fleur, Harry Potter
Step into a world of magic in Fleur’s show-stopping bridal gown! This dress is brilliant for a bride who wants something a bit different on her wedding day. To fully capture Fleur’s enchanting look go for a gown with monochromatic lace detailing laid over a classic white gown. This romantic gown by D’Zage perfectly reflects the beauty of Fleur’s non-traditional wedding dress.
5) Maria, The Sound of Music
If you’re looking for timeless wedding dress, then Maria’s iconic dress may be the one for you! Go for a gown with full-length sleeves and a cinched waist. We love this Hollywood inspired gown by David Tutera for Mon Cheri and think it’s a great way to add a subtle pop of colour to Maria’s traditional bridal look.
6) Katniss, The Hunger Games
Katniss’ dress was so amazing that it literally provoked a revolution. Maybe you don’t want to go that far, but you can still take centre stage in a dazzling statement dress. With layers upon layers of misty tulle, this Sophia Tolli gown is the perfect choice for a bride who wants to get Katniss’ futuristic bridal look.
We are lost for words at Cinderella’s swirly champagne wedding dress! Channel your inner Disney Princess in this lacy gown by Ronald Joyce. We love the way that the floral details on Cinderella’s gown translate into subtle flower patterns in the lace. This dress would look best with neutral makeup and a sleek, elegant up-do.
8) Carrie, Sex in the City
Carrie’s extravagant Vivienne Westwood bridal gown became the envy of stylish brides everywhere when the movie came out in 2008. To recreate this look you’ll need a ballgown style dress with an extreme sweetheart neckline. This fabulous Mori Lee gown is a wonderful choice for a fashionable bride who is obsessed with Carrie Bradshaw’s unique style.
9) Juliet, Romeo & Juliet
We absolutely love this understated, figure-hugging dress worn by Juliet in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film. Who better to get your wedding inspo from than the world’s most famous romantic couple? This sleek and silky Justin Alexander dress is a wonderful choice for a bride who wants to look amazing as she walks down the aisle to her Romeo.
10) Paige, The Vow
Go short and sweet with your bridal look! Paige’s cute and quirky pink wedding dress is a great option for a bride looking for something a little bit different. Pair this stunning Mooshki dress with a pink-tones veil and pastel bouquet and the look is complete!
11) Sophie, Mamma Mia
Steal Sophie’s ethereal bridal look with a loosely structured a-line dress with plenty of lace detailing. This floor length Hayley Paige gown is the perfect choice for a bride who loves Sophie’s playful wedding look.
12) Mary, About Time
Dare to wear red on your wedding day? Mary’s adorable bridal look is full of personality and we think it’s the perfect way to add a touch of fun to your big day. To get her look you’ll need a gorgeous red gown like this embellished fishtail design by Rosa Couture.
13) Mia, Princess Diaries 2
Mia’s ultra-feminine, off-the-shoulder dress is a great way to add a little bit of Princess glamour to your day. It’s hard to imagine a more romantic dress than this timeless Mooshki ballgown. It’s all about that lace!
