1954: Marilyn Monroe

1966: Mia Farrow

On top of being a trendsetter with her iconic pixie cut, Mia Farrow totally ignored conventions when she wore a short, structured white skirt suit for her wedding to Frank Sinatra in 1966. The marriage itself was seen as scandalous, given the age difference between the pair: Farrow was just 21 at the time, while Sinatra was 50 years old.

1969: Audrey Hepburn

Considering her famously stunning looks, it's no wonder that Audrey Hepburn looked every bit the blushing bride at the wedding for her second marriage, which was to Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti in 1969. Still, it came as a big surprise that she opted to wear a pale pink Givenchy minidress with long sleeves and a headscarf.

1989: Emma Thompson

When Emma Thompson married Irish actor Kenneth Branagh in 1989, it's unlikely that anyone expected her to walk down the aisle in a multicolored dress featuring a squiggly pink bodice. To be fair to Emma Thompson, the late '80s and early '90s weren't exactly the most fashionable years in history.
