On-screen wedding looks for your big day inspo

The Big Day, which hit the big screen two weeks ago, might be this year’s most buzzworthy local movie so far, but it isn’t the photogenic bride and groom, played by Desmond Tan and Taiwanese actress Amber An, or even their love story, that made us gush.

Like many girls out there, we could not take our eyes off Amber’s wedding looks in the film, especially that quirky dress that she wore while running down the streets of Singapore (right). The Victorian-style gown, with the bold blue underlay and bow, is an unconventional choice, but that’s precisely why we like it.

Can't get enough? Keep reading for other fictional brides and dresses that left us swooning.

Joanne Peh in C.L.I.F. 3

Joanne looked every bit like a princess when she donned this charming explosion of organza for her on-screen wedding photoshoot with Qi Yuwu. The voluminous ball gown, tiered ruffles, tiara, right down to the dreamy backdrop, are the dream of every romantic bride.

Same same but different. Rui En looks ethereal and fairytale-like walking down the aisle of the former chapel at Chijmes in this gorgeous tulle confection.

Julie Tan in It’s A Wonderful Life

This one’s for the minimalist bride. We love this simple gown for all the little details, from the one-shoulder neckline, to the drapey sleeve, not to mention the flattering silhouette that hugs Julie’s curves at all the right places.

Instead of white, Jeanette’s Cheng Huishan went pastel when she tied the knot in a girly blush strapless gown that matched her bouquet. Her dainty tiara completed her princess-y look.

Chen Liping in Life - Fear Not

Liping also donned a frou frou tulle wedding gown when she married real-life hubby Rayson Tan in the long-form drama but we prefer this red and gold kua better. Featuring elaborate dragon and phoenix embroidery and lightly-beaded details, the kua is both elegant and feminine. We especially dig the scalloped hem.

Although this blinged-out gown only appeared on screen for less than a minute in the form of flashbacks, we couldn’t help swooning over it. The gorgeous crystal-covered bodice makes this one a major show-stopper.

Gayle Nerva in Tanglin

It's easy to see why Gayle's Suzanne turned heads at the Tong family's double wedding. Her one-shoulder gown that features a dramatic bow and train is equal parts sweet and chic. Christopher (James Seah) doesn't look half bad in his white tux.

Fann Wong in The Wedding Game

Can you believe this was ten years ago? Fann exuded elegance and timelessness in this Vera Wang number, one of several she donned in the movie. The sweetheart neckline and pared-down look keep it classic, while the slightly over-the-top bow makes it anything but boring.

Jesseca Liu in New Beginnings

Beach weddings, especially in Singapore’s heat, call for fuss-free, light-as-air dresses like Jesseca’s sassy halter frock. Not only do we adore the fascinator and modern-day flapper vibes of the look, the short style also makes it perfect for walking barefoot in the sand, or in Jesseca’s case, riding a horse.

Selina Lee in Spouse For House

Although Selina’s Jessica had cold feet just before the wedding, she still looked flawless when she walked down the aisle in this dreamy off-shoulder lace applique gown. We can’t say the same for John John (Alaric Tay) though.

Rui En in The In-Laws

Check out the origami detail and draping on this ivory satin number. The draped silhouette is nothing short of stunning and the strapless gown, when styled with a tousled updo, makes for one classy wedding look.

Ya Hui in 118 Reunion

After more than 400 episodes, Ya Hui’s character Jin Zhi finally marries Chou Xiao Zi! And for her wedding photoshoot, she picked this simple and slightly modest fluffy tulle gown, which perfectly reflects her character’s personality. The beaded bodice adds a touch of sparkle.

Okay, so this was just for a bridal shoot in the show but we adore unusual gowns and that’s our wedding fantasy dress right there. Fun fact: Jeanette picked out this dress herself as she liked the eye-catching colour, though she’d prefer to keep things simple and traditional when it comes to her own wedding.
