* ''{{Manga/Bartender}}'' has two separate weddings show up. In the first one the couple are wearing western attire, but following Japanese custom (though TheLadette of a bride made a ''faux pas'' by drinking all the ceremonial sake in one gulp). The second one is never seen, but the drama involves a deeply traditional Japanese man trying to come to terms with the fact that is son is set to marry an American woman, and wondering "how will she be able to wear a wedding kimono?" indicating they are going for the full Japanese monty.

* Photographs in ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' show that Kotetsu and Tomoe had a Christian-style wedding, which wouldn't be remarkable in the anime's New York-influenced setting were it not that the Kaburagi family is depicted as observing many Japanese cultural traditions, including [[spoiler:Tomoe's Buddhist burial]].

** Also invoked in the ''Suzaku Ibun'' DatingSim game. [[spoiler: If [[PlayerCharacter Madoka]] [[ExPy Ohtori]] succesfully romances [[HealingHands Mitsukake]], [[FixFic prevents his canon death]] '''and''' [[GuideDangIt unlocks a certain scene]], a [[MultipleEndings special ending]] in which Mitsukake is reincarnated in Earth (like Taka/Tamahome) will be unlocked. The CG is about his and Madoka's Western wedding, with the groom in a black tuxedo (again, like Taka/Tamahome) and the bride in a cute wedding gown.]]

* In ''Anime/CodeGeass'', [[spoiler: Ohgi and Viletta get ''both'' Shinto and Western wedding ceremonies. Kallen attended both ceremonies and has photos of both in her bedroom.]] Lampshaded in an official picture where the groom wears a wedding kimono and the bride wears a Western bridal gown, which makes sense, seeing as the where the bride and groom are from; b that time they're probably rich enough to afford ''both'' types of weddings.

* Pictured above: An early ''Anime/SailorMoon'' Episode involved a monster targeting a Bridal Fashion show (and using Usagi's former ChristmasCake, now about-to-be-married teacher as the actual victim), and Usagi constantly fantasies about a Western Wedding (with a bunny stain-glass window).

* The early MagicalGirl show ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' features heroines who fight in Western wedding gowns. The series is centered around wedding themes, and includes lots of information about Japanese weddings. The {{Magical Girl}}s also perform the ''oiro-naoshi'' to change into more traditional magical girl costumes halfway through most battles.

[[spoiler: The culprit was the bride's younger brother, who did it because he was in ''severe'' debt and, as her closest relative and only prospect heir, wanted the money that would come from her and her very rich husband's inheritance.]]
