1) Bride Wars: Best friends torn apart by their bridezilla like behavior can have a huge affect on ones friendship. But their classless acts are done while wearing beautifully designed gowns by Vera Wang.
Liz (Kate Hudson) wears a frothy ballgown made of whipped topping, I mean tulle. The bodice is made of lace and is tied with a suede ribbon at the natural waistline. If you can’t afford custom designed Vera, how about these two options that will allow you to pay for the catering as well?
On the other hand, Emma (Anne Hathaway) wears a timeless silhouette to reflect her more conservative, yet chic taste. The dress was Emma’s mother’s, so the style was supposed to reflect just that. The silk taffeta adds structure to the dress and the hour glass shape gently hugs the curves. It was harder to find this dress and to stay within a reasonable price range. You can always seek a dress maker to create a unique dress made for you.

This stunning strapless gown by Manuel Mota has crystal beading throughout the skirt and a silk bow at the natural waist. You can buy the exact dress that Jenny wore by visiting any shop the carries the Manuel Mota line. Or you can find a similar dress by Jasmine Bridal.

4) Sex and the City: The Movie: The season’s most hyped up wedding. But what is a wedding without the groom? Just looking at this scene gives me the sadness chills. As you can see, the dress was too much. It took over the wedding. But don’t let the dress scare you off. If this dress is your dream dress, you can now find a replica by Madam Westwood herself. Just get your name on the list now, as there is a 6 month waiting period to even order. The dress is only 5k. If you want the longer version, don’t worry, it is only 15k.
As Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) said, “A dress so special it could wring a wedding tear from even the most unbelieving of people.” This strapless confection is made from ivory silk and a large Radzimir taffeta skirt. The dart neckline with beading detail and gold-backed ivory corset top is the frosting on the cake. Portions of the skirt has pickups and a partial bubble hem to reveal the underskirting. A dress fit for a diva or two.

5) 27 Dresses: Tess Nichols (Malin Akerman) from 27 Dresses gets engaged to her older sister, Jane (Katherine Heigl)’s boss/secret crush and heads down the aisle before Jane. Thus, using their mother’s wedding dress (well a portion of it) for her own. The dress that Tess “designs” is sweet without being too foufy and features beading between the v neck. The empire waist would hide a multitude of sins and secret pockets for your vows.
The dress from the movie was designed by Amsale, with the additional lace waistband that was added specifically for the movie to imitate a portion of the mother’s dress. You can go straight for the gold and order the Amsale version or find a more affordable option that should fit your needs and budget.
Would you wear a dress that was in a featured flick? I am in love with Tess’ dress. If only I could renew my vows now…
