Ah summertime. BBQ’s, swimming, terrasses, and you guessed right, weddings! Yes, tis the season and I am sure I am not alone in having to attend more than one. Weddings for me mean I get to dress up, dance and eat a ridiculous amount of food. The main thing I look forward to however is finally getting to see what look the bride decided to go for. From the hair, to makeup and dress, every decision greatly affects your overall look and what kind of bride you want to be.
We have often witnessed our favorite characters getting hitched on television and more often than not it is a very joyous occasion. On Monday I went over some of my favorite TV show looks and here are some other looks and moments I have adored from the past and present.
This was simply some foreshadowing, but seeing Robin Scherbatsky from How I Met Your Mother in her beautiful mermaid wedding gown was such a delight. From the crystal belt to the sheer neckline and sleeves, this bridal look oozes old Hollywood with a modern twist.
When Phoebe Buffay from Friends tied the knot with the adorable Mike (who was one of my favorite significant others of any TV show) her look was not at all suprising. Considering how funky and different her style was on a daily basis, her going the untraditional route with the non-white dress was expected. She stayed true to herself and looked beautiful with her deep ivory corset gown and multicolored wild-floral bouquet.
Second time’s a charm. Or at least that was the case for Charlette York-Goldenblatt from Sex and the City when she married the love of her life, Harry Goldenblatt. She converted to Judaism to be with the man she loved and her wedding look the second time around was absolutely breathtaking. This feminine, very defined gown with a fine criss-cross chest detailing left us all in awe. Her crisp white vail and romantic curls with red lips allowed for a classic look and even though the ceremony didn’t go exactly as planned, they lived a very happily ever after!
Mr. and Mrs. Chanandler Bong finally tied the knot, and what a glorious day it was! When Monica Gellar and Chandler Bing got married on Friends, fans couldn’t be happier (besides, it was refreshing to see someone else other than Ross say “I do” for a change). Monica’s low v, fitted, satin gown was perfect for her relatively simple style, and her down-to-the-floor length vail was just enough to add a little something to the basic yet beautiful gown. The deep red bouquet keeps up with the classic essence of her bridal look.
If anyone was going to pull off the different bridal look it would be Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Girl. Always trying to set themselves apart in the fashion world, their wedding day would be no exception. This being Blair’s second wedding she wanted to go for a light baby blue beaded gown with a beautiful train, and maintained her princess tiara (as per her first wedding). On the other hand, Serena who was always known to be a bit excentric, opted for an as gold-as-you-can-get strapless ball gown. They may not look like your typical brides but their personalities shone through and looked stunning nonetheless.
Last but definitely not least: Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence from Boy Meets World. One of the most adorable couples that took over our childhood because we literally watched they grow and fall in love together. This being the 90’s, obviously Topanga’s dress is slightly outdated, however long sleeve gowns are making a comeback (i.e. The Duchess, Kate Middleton). It is an understated look that can go a long way, and I dont doubt we will be seeing more of it!
No matter what style and look you opt for on your big day, remember to have your own personal taste make an appearance. And when looking for a dress keep in mind of one thing: you won’t know how it will look on you, until you try it! You could be very pleasantly surprised!
