List Rules Vote up the most iconic TV wedding dresses.

Television weddings rarely go off without a hitch. Sometimes the groom doesn’t show up. Other times he gets poisoned at the reception. In rare occasions, the bride decides she doesn’t want to go through with the whole event and bolts. But regardless of the particulars, weddings make for great TV. These special episodes celebrate relationships that viewers have been rooting for seasons – maybe even since the beginning of the series. They’re fun to watch, emotional, and memorable.

But, plot points aside, there's another factor that makes these episodes especially watchable: the wedding dresses. These are the best TV wedding dresses of all time, perfect for admiring, envying, and gasping over from the comfort of the couch. From Blair to Charlotte to CeCe to Penny, this list rounds up the very best wedding dresses on TV. Read on for some serious wedding inspiration, and get those remote-clicking, list-voting fingers ready. Vote up the TV character wedding dresses you’re still swooning over, even if it’s been years since the ceremony took place.
