A definitive ranking of the best wedding dresses from your favourite TV shows

  • Marie Claire is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn commission on some of the items you choose to buy.
  • From Chandler and Monica‘s big day to Serena finally marrying Lonely Boy, and even that red wedding from Game of Thrones, some of our best TV memories involve weddings. And of course, wedding dresses.

    Which is why when jewellers Ingle & Rhode compiled illustrations of our favourite TV wedding dresses, we were immediately hooked.

    There is every single wedding dress from GoT, as well as the ones from Downton Abbey, Sex and the City, Grey’s Anatomy and many, many more.

    Plus we learn some cool facts too. For example, Sansa Stark’s dress was deliberately over-sized to emphasize her immaturity. Her girdle, too, was intended to evoke how trapped she felt; the detail of her dress portrayed Lannister lions dominating Stark direwolves.

    Or, Monica Gellar’s House of Bianchi V-neck and A-line skirt was picked off the rack because there wasn’t time to design and fit a bespoke wedding dress, much to the chagrin of show designer Debra McGuire, who also had a shop that sold wedding dresses – and who would’ve benefitted from the publicity of designing Monica’s frock.

    Here’s a gif of all our faves.

    As for SATC’s Charlotte’s first wedding, her Vera Wang dress cost a massive $14,000 (£10,500).
