You might already follow a bunch of wedding related shows and about a million Pinterest boards for your wedding vision. BUT, what would your perfect bridal look really be without a little inspiration from classic rom com movies? Aren’t they what had us believing in true love in the first place?
Since you finally found that show-up-at-your-doorstep, kisses-you-in-the-pouring-rain kind of love that you see in the movies, you want to achieve a bridal look that gets your groom thinking he married a girl straight out of a fairytale (or rather, a romantic comedy). So take note ladies, these bridal looks are worthy of imitation and they're going to have your hubby-to-be's jaw on the floor.
Mamma Mia! - Sophie (Amanda Seyfried)
Planning a destination wedding? Or at least a lakeside wedding? Look no further than Sophie's bridal look from Mamma Mia! Let's talk about the dress first: layers of tumbling chiffon encrusted with jewels are absolutely stunning on Sophie and go perfectly with the island setting. Not to mention her long, textured waives are flattering for any hairstyle and the flower crown added to this beautiful bohemian bridal look.
Sophie kept it simple with the jewelery -- no necklace, small studded earrings and a bracelet. This bohemian-inspired bracelet from Gottlieb & Sons features black and white diamonds in a leaf silhouette – perfect for your island bride look.
Bride Wars - Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway)
Besides being one of the cutest wedding movies about BFFs, the film also features two of the most gorgeous bridal looks in rom com history. Liv looks like she just stepped off the top of a wedding cake, and Emma's elegant dress was passed down from her mother (thankfully her mom had good taste).
Liv's Vera Wang dress has all the tulle layering you could ever dream of (seriously you could get lost in it) and an innocent satin bow defines her waistline, while her Bridget Bardot bangs give her a bit of an edge. Two-tone drop earrings from Gottlieb & Sons would pair perfectly with her up do.
Em's taffeta dress with an off the shoulder strap gives more of a romantic feel, with a classic curled up do. Pair them with a more vintage-inspired earring from Gottlieb & Sons, like these rose and white-gold diamond clusters.
The Notebook - Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams)
Now what would this list be without the most romantic movie of all time? Let's just forget she didn't actually walk down the aisle in this look. Soft, romantic old Hollywood curls on this gorgeous redhead's character are stunning. Her post WWII gown features gorgeous lace details and an off-the-shoulder illusion with nylon material covering her shoulders kind of reminds us of Kate Middleton's dress -- and who doesn't want to look like a princess on their wedding day?!
Now for the jewelry...think vintage-inspired like this square classic from Gottlieb & Sons. Top it all off with a long, flowing veil and a crown of pearls and you'll be looking more beautiful than Ryan Gosling's ex beau (It’s tragic they’re no longer together).
The Hangover - Tracy Garner (Sasha Barresse)
For an extremely light-hearted movie, this girl's got some serious style in the bridal department. This look is for the bride that wants a sweetheart silhouette. Her strapless silk gown with a swan-like fit complements her shape. The satin ribbon adds just a hint of spice to this classic dress.
Tracy breaks the rule that you can't rock a ponytail to your wedding – her gorgeous side-swept hairdo with floral details fall effortlessly on her bare shoulders. Finish it off with this diamond necklace by Gottlieb & Sons, adding just the right amount of bling to this bridal look.
The Vow - Paige (Rachel McAdams)
Rachel McAdams’ bridal look in this movie is quirky yet cute. Now we're not saying you have to go all out with the floral pink AND short gown, but you could do one or the other. Short dresses are certainly making a return and they're perfect for summer weddings, while pink makes a statement that’s naturally unforgettable.
The bouncy pink veil adds more fun to this look, while the jewelry is minimal to balance everything out. To add the ideal finishing touch, this white, yellow and pink halo diamond ring from Gottlieb & Sons is a beautiful cross between classy and unique.
One of these ideas is bound to strike some interest for your perfect bridal look -- after all, Hollywood is where all the style trends tend to begin. But the best part is, your romantic comedy doesn't end when the credits come on!
