Make some popcorn, curl up on the couch, and prepare for a film marathon starring some of the most iconic bridal gowns to appear on the big screen. Autumn Communication's Miriam Stevens curated this selection, all available to rent or buy on Amazon Instant Video, to get you started.

Runaway Bride

Maggie Carpenter (Julia Roberts) may not have been the most reliable bride, but she sure did have an eye for beautiful wedding dresses. Her Amsale Aberra gown for her final wedding with Ike (Richard Gere) was an off-the-shoulder satin silhouette featuring refined beadwork.

The Sound of Music

Satin, a high collar, and button sleeves…these are a few of my favorite things. Maria von Trapp (Julie Andrews) simply stuns in her modest A-line gown.

Sex and the City: The Movie

When Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) finally decided to tie the knot with Big, we knew her choice would be equally as big. Her silk couture gown was designed by Vivienne Westwood and featured gorgeous scoops and folds, making it the ultimate princess dress.

The Duchess

While you may not want to wear a corset and wig on your wedding day, you have to admire Georgiana's (Keira Knightley's) lavish 19th-century gown from The Duchess. The cream silk creation is embroidered with intricate gold and silk ruching that sweeps from the bottom of the skirt all the way up to the jewel-embellished bodice.

If you're a no-frills type of girl, then you may want to consider a dress like Charlie Cantilini's (Jennifer Lopez's) from Monster-in-Law. The clean lines and expert tailoring will show off your figure, as did Charlie's Saeyoung Vu Couture dress.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 1)

Before you write this off as just another vampire movie, watch Bella's (Kristen Stewart's) wedding. Carolina Herrera designed the old-world-meets-new-world gown, combining modern lace detailing with a traditional button-up back.

Bride Wars

If you're a fan of the classics, then take a cue from Liv Lerner (Kate Hudson) of Bride Wars. Her classic Vera Wang tulle ball gown was the epitome of glamour and refined beauty with minimal embroidery and a delicate sweetheart neckline.

Mamma Mia!

Planning a romantic seaside wedding? Look to Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) from Mamma Mia! for inspiration. Her silk-chiffon, multitiered gown epitomizes the effortless beach look, making it perfect for any destination celebration.

My Best Friend's Wedding

It's all about the sleeves! Kimberly Wallace (Cameron Diaz) may have been the one getting married, but Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts) knew the best way to emphasize her gorgeous neckline was by wearing a dramatic, off-the-shoulder dress. Try a gown with a similar cut to play up your best features.
