Most of us are suckers for a good TV wedding. The best sitcom weddings have just enough laughs and just enough tearjerker moments, and also, a really good wedding dress. Whether the wedding was adorable or not, these are some of the most well-known weddings on TV, and I ranked the wedding dresses worn by our favorite brides.
Monica Geller on FRIENDS: A
I'm a sucker for a simple wedding dress. With the additions of a beautiful veil and jewelry, the look had just enough for me, and Monica looked elegant and timeless in this dress. I also appreciate dresses that aren't strapless, as everyone seems to opt for strapless these days, and it's getting overdone. The lace on her neckline was delicate and sweet but not overdone, and combined with the simple gown, looked sleek and chic.
Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation: B
The newspaper dress idea was adorable in thought, but in practice lead to a not-too-stylish wedding dress. I'm torn on this one, because the shorter dress is a bit more age-appropriate, but I also felt like Leslie deserved a slightly less cutesy style than this one. It was such a sweet TV wedding, and Leslie looked great, but the lace short sleeves and black sash were just all a bit too bridesmaid to me.
Lily Aldrin on How I Met Your Mother: A-
Lily's dress was so sweet, girly, and stylish, just like her. Marshall and Lily are my favorite TV couple, and while their wedding had many mishaps and slip-ups, the wedding dress was pretty great. The sparkly beaded top was perfect for Lily, but I'm not crazy about the added bow, which was a bit too precious. Her hair and general styling looked elegant and sweet.
Phoebe Buffay on FRIENDS: C+
I adore Phoebe and Mike, and their wedding in the snow was adorable, but I never understood her dress. Not only is it far from my favorite style on anyone, but it seemed so far from Phoebe's personality to want a shiny bustier top with rhinestone buttons. The style seemed a little tacky to me with her tight blonde curls, and Phoebe's bohemian aesthetic deserved a great dress to match.
Carla Espinosa on Scrubs: A-
Carla's dress was absolutely beautiful. Her wedding to Turk was far from perfect, but their marriage was rock-solid and the dress kicked it off well. The neckline is a bit more interesting than a straight-across neck, and the gathered waist added some interest to an otherwise understated look. I also adore the simple styling of her hair, which draws attention to the neckline of her dress and doesn't look fussy.
Pam Beesly on The Office: B
Jim and Pam's wedding was THE BEST. As beautiful as Pam looked, I have mixed feelings on her dress. To her credit, her options were limited accomodating a baby bump. I love the beaded empire waist to allow the fabric to skim over her belly, but I felt like the sweetheart neckline of her dress, especially combined with her translucent necklace, were a bit too cheesy.
Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl: A+
For Blair's second and most important wedding to Chuck Bass, she wore the most breathtakingly unconventional gown, and it was tasteful, elegant, and perfect. The slim fit and long sleeves are a beautiful contrast to a more typical strapless princess gown like the one she wore to her first wedding. Leave it to Blair to wear a headband to her own wedding, and make it look absolutely amazing. Combined with Chuck's white suit with matching accents, this was the perfect wedding to end the show, and a perfect dress to get married in.
