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

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).

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
