* Alice Tinker's wedding dress in ''Series/TheVicarOfDibley'' episode "Love & Marriage", although being [[CloudCuckoolander Alice]] it has a few unique additions of her own, such as a headpiece that looks like a glass sculpture with hearts hanging from it, fairy lights, and an illuminated bodice reading "I Love Hugo".[[labelnote:*]]Her original design was even weirder: "And for the train, I thought ''ThomasTheTankEngine''..."[[/labelnote]]

* Golden Eyes' dress in the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ''ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill'' is what happens when PimpedOutDress gets combined with WartimeWedding. The accompanying text admits that the heroine "spent her heart out on the misty froth and silver of bride-white," while [[http://cartoons.osu.edu/digital_albums/nellbrinkley/19.php#anchor the illustration itself]] shows the bride swathed in billowing lace and carrying not just a bouquet, but an ''armful'' of pink roses. The wedding itself is explicitly compared to the ending of a fairy tale in the opening paragraph:
--> "All good faery-tales have a Prince and a Princess, and a faithful Comrade, and Love, and Adventure, and War, and terrible Barriers that rear themselves between the Prince and the Princess, and a Wedding with bride-roses and white slippers—and nobody ever dies in a good faery-tale, or doesn’t get what they want—except the wicked Ogre in the tale. So this tale, too! On a bright, crisp day in Sunny France Golden-Eyes and Bill got what they wanted—one another. The Ogre—War—was dead. [sic]"

** Kate Middleton's dress ([[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/royal-wedding/8483330/Royal-wedding-Kate-Middleton-wears-Queens-tiara.html shown here]]) is in the "fitted princess" style. With just a fair amount of lace, it's quite a SimpleYetOpulent dress.

* Kimber wears one in the second half of the ''Series/{{Jem}}'' two-parter "Hollywood Jem" episode, with all the other Holograms (minus Jem, as Jerrica was the maid of honor, instead) being her bridesmaids. [[spoiler: She was to marry Jeff, her ''[[YourCheatingHeart other]]'' [[YourCheatingHeart boyfriend]], but they ultimately decided not to go through it.]]

The main reason for such dresses (''and perhaps the key to this trope over any other wedding dress'') is the notion that many women like to "feel like a {{Princess}}" on their wedding (even if she is [[RoyalBlood already royalty]]), and wearing such a dress is at least one way to carry out that wish. She's probably had this desire ever since she was a small child in her PrincessPhase. Back then she probably had everything planned out, except for who the groom was, [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend maybe]].

Now as the name indicates, this dress is likely to show up at [[HappilyEverAfter the end of]] some {{Fairy Tale}}s, or at least modern works of them. (Genuine folk fairy tales tend to skip over the satorial details to lavish attention on the villain's horrific death. Illustrated versions may show it, though.)

* When Queen Ehlana marries in ''The Sapphire Rose'' (the third book of the ''Literature/{{Elenium}}'' trilogy), her gown is described as being this, including having floor-length sleeves turned back partway to show the gold fabric beneath the white. The narration even notes that those in attendance are expected to view her "not as a woman so much as a work of art." Because the wedding was arranged on relatively short notice, the groom wonders if the gown was put together by magic, which is entirely possible.
