FILM’S MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING DRESSES

FROM THE SIMPLY ELEGANT TO THE IMMENSELY COMPLEX, THESE ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING DRESSES THAT HAVE EVER GRACED THE SILVER SCREEN, REGARDLESS OF HOW WE FEEL ABOUT THOSE WEARING THEM. HOWEVER, THE ONE THING TO TAKE AWAY FROM THIS LIST ISN’T HOW BEAUTIFUL THE DRESS IS, BUT HOW MUCH THEY DEFINE THE CHARACTER, AS MUCH AS YOUR DRESS SHOULD DO FOR YOU.

ROMEO + JULIET

The utter simplicity of this dress is characterised by its modest fabric and gentle cut, buttoned up the middle to a sleeveless top. With the added white gloves, this dress is the sheer embodiment of youthful innocence and optimism.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC

Marriage is a institution based on a tradition, but unlike so many other traditions, this one, is built on love, so of course its still going strong. This dress is a testament to that fact, reaching back to black and white film, Maria Von Trapp’s modest v-neck and satin a-line dress, is something that we feel, may have sadly faded from the world. Never the less, it is this dress that shows how beautiful traditional ideology can be, when it comes to clothing.

THE GREAT GATSBY

Although you may not particularly like this dress, it can be argued that at the time, it was the height of fashion. This dress has inspired a huge resurgence in 1920’s wedding themes, especially with the dress’s architecture and headpiece. The 1920’s was a time when elegance met often with opulence and its no more apparent than with this dress.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS

Although the satin ball gown wedding dress has faded from the eye of fashion recently, it cannot be denied that this dress is simply the most gorgeous of its kind. With the bow adornments and bustled off the shoulder cut, its architecture is as simple as its details are pretty. This dress is for those of you who love, like we do, the look of antiquated delicacy.

BRIDE WARS (BOTH)

Its amazing to see the comparison between these two dresses, such different designs both resulting in such flawless beauty, it would almost be difficult to believe they were created by the same designer, unless you course you know, like we do, that these lucky ladies are both wearing Vera Wang, so of course we just love them.

THE PRINCESS DIARIES 2

Traditionally beautiful, as should be expected for a princess. The cut while having a flatteringly contemporary top, is overcast with the beauty of the filigree covering the arms and chest, ending at the shoulders to create a slimmer neck and make way for the tiara and vale, this dress is traditional simplicity and flawlessly beautiful.

LOVE ACTUALLY

Relying on the complexity of the fabric, the minimalistic beauty of the dress is bright to life. With the feather theme running through the dress and into Keira’s hair, it’s a reminder that the simpler a dress, often the more details have to be perfectly balanced. We love it’s simple theme and modesty, that extends from it’s crown to hem.

CATCHING FIRE

Although we barely got to see it before it turned black, Katniss’ dress is a marvel. On closer inspection you can see the marine influence as the folds and silver filigree are in fact based on sea-life and coral. With the figure hugging top and loose curls below the waist, it’s the balance of the dress’ architecture that make it beautiful. Its off symmetry shape makes it complex and uniquely elegant.

TWILIGHT

No matter how you feel about Kirsten Steward, you’ll have to admit, this dress is simply stunning. Traditionally cut, with a slim not super fitted top, the long sleeves and flowing loose train and designed to move with your movements, although the cut is hardly what makes this dress incredible. The details to the design are what takes your breath away, from the buttoned seam along the back, to the historic finger rings holding the sleeves along the arms, but really it’s the back. The windowed back piece with the filigree edging is sublime, giving the dress the perfect marriage of traditional ideology and modern elegance. If we had to pick one to wear from this list, it would have to be this one.
