Hindsight is always 20/20—especially when it comes to puffy sleeves and questionable tiaras. (Somehow we all managed to make it out of the ’80s alive.) Here are nine famous ladies wearing some…interesting…wedding gowns.

Not a caftan or floppy hat in sight. Instead, the celebrity stylist and fashion designer wore a classic Isaac Mizrahi ball gown and (hmm…) elbow-length gloves to marry Rodger Berman in 1996.

Victoria Beckham

This Vera Wang dress reportedly cost $100,000 at the time (1999) when the then Spice Girl wed David Beckham. Less shocking is the severe strapless bodice but more head-scratching is whatever is happening with those bangs…and that mini crown.

While white isn’t always necessarily a requirement, this pink Vera Wang halter dress Stone donned in 1998 reads a little more Casino than it does “marriage.”

Honestly, would you expect anything less?

Mariah Carey

Once upon a time, the singer did not exclusively wear bandage dresses. Case in point: For her 1993 nuptials to Tommy Mottola, she chose a $25,000 Vera Wang gown that was reportedly inspired by Princess Diana.

Jada Pinkett Smith

A crushed-velvet Badgley Mischka turtleneck is a bold move. But hey, it was 1997. We later learned that the future Mrs. Smith was secretly pregnant with first child, Jaden, at the time. So full coverage makes more sense in retrospect.

Today, the country singer’s style is rather streamlined, but for her 1988 wedding, she went full out with bows, perm, headbands, the works.

Sarah Jessica Parker

When she married Matthew Broderick in 1997, Parker chose an unusual black Morgane Le Fay dress--a decision she later said she regrets. However, the wild style statement may have been a good omen: The next year, she would debut as an iconic trendsetter in a little television show called Sex and the City.
