Just 27 Extraordinary Movie Wedding Dresses I Have Some Opinions On

Every once in a while, there come movie wedding dresses that are so pretty that we can’t help but imagine ourselves walking the aisle in it. Every girl must have done this at least once in her lifetime. And hello! Can we blame them?

Before beginning, let’s look at the criteria used for ranking the Movie Wedding Dresses 

  1. Movie Wedding Dresses that are classic, timeless, and well-executed are ranked higher. Simple yet stylish dresses that never went out of fashion are definite winners.
  2. While the ones with cheap material and extra detailing that felt unnecessary are among the low-ranked dresses, both too basic and over-the-top dresses are included in this category.
  3. Most of the Movie Wedding Dresses are chosen by the characters themselves. So, we are not considering if the dress was fit for the character or not. We are giving liberty and assuming everything fits well.

Of course, many people will have different opinions over these reviews, and we would love to hear all of them in the comments section below. 

Here is the list of all the iconic movie wedding dresses that we can remember, along with their reviews. Let’s get started.

  1. Corina in Always a Bridesmaid

Director: Trey Haley

Initial release25 August 2019

Genre: Comedy, Romance

IMDb rating: 5.6/10

This style is unusual and looks fresh. The sheer skirt is interesting. The top is gorgeous, and the detailing is lovely. But the top should have been more fitted from where the sleeves are attached. We are totally digging her veil and her headband.

  1. Shelby in Steel Magnolias

Director: Herbert Ross

Initial release5 November 1989

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance

IMDb rating: 7.3/10

We absolutely love the princess-y vibe of this one. And finally, a movie wedding dresses with sleeves that are just perfect without any Ifs and buts. The details on the sleeves are pretty and look like an extension of the top without looking like an afterthought.

  1. Liv in Bride Wars

Director: Gary Winick

Initial release: 9 January 2009

Genre: Comedy, Romance

Where to watch: Disney+ Hotstar

IMDb rating: 5.5/10

Love the pop of color the belt adds to the dress, unlike other movie wedding dresses. In fact, the belt makes the dress more interesting. Otherwise, the skirt feels like it starts a little low.

  1. Marie in Marie Antoinette

Director: Sofia Coppola

Initial release: 24 May 2006

Genre: Biography, Drama, History

Where to watch: Netflix

IMDb rating: 6.4/10

Okay. This dress is not practical, we know. But it looks so sparkly and princess-like without looking cheap. 

  1. Sophie in Mamma Mia!

Director: Phyllida Lloyd

Initial release: 2 September 2008

Genre: Comedy, Musical, Romance

Where to watch: Youtube

IMDb rating: 6.4/10

This dress has a lot going on and could have used a little less detailing. Still, we love the romantic and bohemian theme. Her hair and crown add a cherry on the top.

  1. Cinderella in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella

Director: Robert Iscove

Initial release: 2 November 1997

Genre: Musical, Fantasy, Family

IMDb rating: 6.6/10

The dress is delightful, but the sleeves are extra poufy, and the way they go around the neck is not very cool.

  1. Clare in The Time Traveler’s Wife

Director: Robert Schwentke

Initial release: 14 August 2009

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Romance

Where to watch: Youtube

IMDb rating: 7.1/10

A very basic dress that looks cute from the front (and the back). Nothing much to point out here.

  1. Sarah in Just Married

Director: Shawn Levy

Initial release: 10 January 2003

Genre: Comedy, Romance

Where to watch: Youtube

IMDb rating: 5.5/10

The satin looks beautiful. The dress is very elegant yet very simple. But it lacks the wow factor that we are looking for.

  1. Jasmine in Aladdin(2019)

Director: Guy Ritchie

Initial release: 24 May 2019

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Family

Where to watch: Disney+ Hotstar

IMDb rating: 6.9/10

In this movie wedding dresses list, the dress is the most gorgeous one. It’s intricate and pays homage to the traditional turquoise color of Jasmine’s outfit. Her crown and veil are also very gorgeous.

  1. Belle in Beauty and the Beast(2017)

Director: Bill Condon

Initial release: 23 February 2017

Genre: Family, Fantasy, Musical

Where to watch: Disney+ Hotstar

IMDb rating: 7.1/10

The symbolic roses, the neckline, the skirt, and the V-cut of the bodice are all very appealing. We only wish the sleeves were a bit longer, but the rest of the dress is beautiful.

  1. Jenna in 13 Going on 30

Director: Gary Winick

Initial release: 23 April 2004

Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Romance

IMDb rating: 6.2/10

This is a basic strapless dress that you can absolutely see yourself wearing. In fact, it is one of the most favorite basic dresses on the list. Additionally, it’s well suited for Jenna.

  1. Bella in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1

Director: Bill Condon

Initial release: 25 November 2011 

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Drama

IMDb rating: 4.9/10

Elegant, sophisticated, and understated with gorgeous sleeves and neckline. Absolutely stunning. Slight points are off only because it feels a little too mature for 18 years old Bella.

  1. Candace in Think Like a Man Too

Director: Tim Story

Initial release: 20 June 2014

Genre: Comedy, Romance

IMDb rating: 5.8/10

Short wedding dresses are unusual, but this one fits well in all aspects. The sweetheart neckline, the sheath skirt, the hair, and the belt all come together in perfect merry. It’s simple at the same time, very mature. 

  1. Jenny in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Director: Mark Waters

Initial release: 1 May 2009

Genre: Comedy, Romance, Fantasy

Where to watch: Youtube

IMDb rating: 5.8/10

The structured bow and the subtle lace that goes above the bodice are very attractive. Although, we wish it had more mermaid cut to it.

  1. Sabrina in Jumping the Broom

Director:  Salim Akil

Initial release: 6 May 2011

Genre: Comedy, Drama

IMDb rating: 5.7/10

The gathering of the skirt adds more structure and romance to the skirt, and the bodice is also very pleasing. However, it could have used something extra to make it more interesting.

Like other movie wedding dresses, it has got the most beautiful train in the lot. The blue hue, the flower embroidery, and the triangle-shaped bottom of the bodice are very charming. The only thing that’s off is the big crown.

Director: James Foley

Initial release: 8 February 2018

This stunning dress is delicate, lacy, and combines two classic necklines (sweetheart and square). We wish it had more mermaid flair to it, but still, it’s amazing.

Compared to the other movie wedding dresses, it is similar to the previous one, except its lace isn’t as delicate, and the neckline is simple. But the skirt and the scalloped lace and are prettier, so it ranks higher.

The turtle neck on the wedding dress is unusual, but it works beautifully here. The corset-like top, the sleeves, and Victorian vibe are EVERYTHING!! This dress is the most wearable yet very stylish.
