Some of our favourite characters have worn incredible and inspiring bridal gowns, while others have made us squirm with their bad dress sense.

Our favourite soaps such as EastEnders, Coronation Street and Emmerdale have had entire story lines centred around its character’s wedding dresses alone.

While American sitcoms such as Friends and Sex and the City have given us some of the most memorable wedding dresses to date.

How many of these television bridal gowns can you remember?

Actress Nikki Sanderson tied the knot to character Adam Donovan in emotional scenes on Hollyoaks.

But Channel 4 viewers were feeling mixed about her wedding dress.

Discussing the bridal gown – which caused uproar on a previous episode after Darcy instructed Toby to colour Maxine’s dress in and ruin it – fans couldn’t decide whether they liked it or not, sparking a debate on social media.

Giving it a thumbs up, one fan gushed: “Maxine bugs the hell out of me but @NikkiSanderson looked stunning in that wedding dress  #hollyoaks.”

Another liked it so much they wanted to know where it was from, commenting: “@Hollyoaks my best friend gets married next year, can you tell us where Maxine’s wedding dress is from please?!”

However, others hated it, with one writing: “#Hollyoaks Good God Maxine I’ve seen you look better taking Minnie down the shops. That dress doesn’t suit you and your hairs a mess.”

During the highly anticipated episode, fans of the BBC show took to Twitter to gush over Ronnie’s wedding dress, which featured delicate lace detail, sheer sleeves and a huge veil.

Commenting, one fan wrote: “Ronnie looking gorgeous in her wedding dress.”

Disagreeing, another added: “What a godawful wedding dress! A character like Ronnie would never get wed in a frightful frock like that! BBC props cupboard #eastenders.”

Despite causing a fuss throughout the show as social media users argued over the bridal gown, it quickly became clear that the number had caused Ronnie to drown.

Jumping into a swimming pool with her wedding dress still on as she tried to save her sister, Roxy, viewers pointed out that Ronnie had become tangled in the heavy dress.

“So Ronnie dives in to save Roxy but the weight of her wedding dress pulls her under too! Oh, no! Goodbye R&R! #GoodByeR&R #Eastenders,” wrote one fan.

Another added: “So basically, Ronnie got killed by her wedding dress #EastEnders.”

She said: “The dress was very pretty and boho, but impossible to walk in because it was so long.

“One of our costume girls, Laura, the poor thing, literally had to carry the back of it to make sure I didn’t trip over. Her back’s probably broken.

“I wore six dresses in all, because they had to be dirty for certain scenes and some had to get destroyed in the disaster.”
