* An episode of ''KodomoNoOmocha'' has an engaged couple arguing whether the bride should wear a traditional kimono or a Western wedding dress. * The ''TokyoMewMew'' manga ends with a "wedding" ceremony [[spoiler:between Ichigo and Aoyama-kun]]. * An episode of ''KaitouSaintTail'' had the title character go after a stolen wedding dress design at a fashion show by sneaking in as one of the models. This also gave her best friend Seira, acting as her decoy, an identity crisis of sorts -- [[NunsAreMikos she's a nun]].

Western weddings started to become popular in TheEighties, and there were [[TropeCodifier two events that codified the trope itself]]. One was the the televised marriage of actors Momoe Yamaguchi and Tomokazu Miura in 1980, and the other was the famous wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1982.

In Japan, the civil or religious ceremony of a wedding has no legal status -- the actual marriage is enacted by filing the proper paperwork with the government and is all that is needed; anything else is simply an occasion for a party. Given that most Japanese do little more than give lip service to religion for most of their lives, it should not come as a surprise that they do not feel any particular need to have Shinto or Buddhist ceremonies. In fact, traditional wedding ceremonies are very long, very complicated, extremely uncomfortable for the bride, and (most importantly to a young couple and their families) ''expensive'', even compared to the most excessive American weddings.

* Used twice in the ''very'' last episode of the Manga/MarmaladeBoy TV series, including one subversion: ** First, [[spoiler: [[TeacherStudentRomance Meiko and Namura]] get married in a Western ceremony attended by Miki, Yuu and their friends. The subversion comes in Meiko ''not'' wearing a wedding gown, just a classy [[LadyInred dark red two-piece outfit]].]] ** Second, the ultra-last sequence implies that [[spoiler: when they actually get married, [[FlirtyStepsiblings Yuu and Miki]] will play the trope completely straight.]]
