The dress is often considered the centerpiece of a wedding - and that holds true for fictional weddings as well. The best television weddings are usually over-the-top affairs, celebrating the unions of beloved characters with dreamy details sure to make dedicated viewers swoon.

For these TV historical dramas, wedding episodes were a chance for their costume crews to really show off their skills. Just look at the intricate embroidery on Claire's 18th-century gown in Outlander, and how perfectly Queen Elizabeth II's 1940s wedding dress was recreated for The Crown.

No matter the specific setting, the best wedding dresses from history series are truly timeless.
