The wedding dresses that never made it into the SATC movie

It was our second favourite scene of the Sex And The City film, after the Mr. Big walk-in cupboard proposal of course, the moment when an excited Carrie tries on all those fabulous designer wedding dresses, after vowing to keep things low key.

In the movie, we can see her trying on fab beaded and feathery gowns from the likes of Chanel and Christian Lacroix for a magazine shoot, before trying on the winning Vivienne Westwood dress that she wears for her ill-fated wedding to Big ('I put a bird on my head!').

However it looks like we missed out on loads more dresses, judging by a behind-the-scenes picture gallery shared on the iconic Every Outfit on SATC Instagram account.

They posted the pics with the caption, 'BEHOLD! The rarely-seen photos from Carrie's wedding dress fitting. We would definitely make a case for the more colorful, ornate options (LaCroix, we're assuming?) which speak to Ms. Bradshaw's anti-establishment streak. But then again, being jilted at the altar in a white poufy gown is inifinitely more humiliating. Sometimes you have to pick the story over the fashion —even on Sex and the City. '

Thought it must've been hard to pick a curated edit for the film, I can't help but wonder (sorry) why some of these didn't make the cut, as there are some fabulous poofy sleeves and embellishments Carrie would entirely approve of.

Sarah Jessica Parker herself even commented on the pictures, writing 'Ok. Wait a minute. We have so much to discuss. I'm gathering thoughts. WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE PHOTOS??? The mother load!! X, sj'

Luckily, the film has just landed on Netflix, so you can revisit this moment to your heart's content.

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, 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.
