    And just like our first threads (big hair, shoulder pads, turbans) this is only about the appearance.
    It's not about characters or storylines or weddings, we're looking for the most fabulous bride.​

    1 - Cathy Geary on Knots Landing: probably the most "80's" looking of all the wedding looks among the soaps.

    [​IMG]

    2 - Fallon Carrington on The Colbys: a vision in pink taffeta

    [​IMG]

    3 - Amanda Carrington on Dynasty: a fairytale look for a fairytale wedding

    [​IMG]

    4 - Krystle in Dynasty: beautiful in blue.

    [​IMG]

    5 - Melissa in Falcon Crest:
    a classic dress with a modern twist to top it off.

    Didn't everyone have a tiara headband in the 80's? I know I did.

    1. Dana Carrington - DYNASTY
    upload_2019-3-23_23-13-59.png
    upload_2019-3-23_23-14-40.png
    An outrageously opulent wedding dress only befitting the future Dynasty Queen.

    2. Fallon Colby - THE COLBYS
    upload_2019-3-23_23-27-37.png
    There's something about those curves that reminds me of a space-y outfit, as if she were Princess Fallonia in Dynasty Trek.
    The headpiece looks like mini light bulbs and microchips rather than diamonds (already making contact?)
    And there were more hidden clues loooong before the UFO made its dramatic entrance.

    3. Fallon Carrington - DYNASTY
    upload_2019-3-23_23-40-47.png
    I think this is the most romantic dress and I also love the details in this headpiece.

    4. Cathy Geary - KNOTS LANDING
    Thanks @Carrie Fairchild for reminding me.
    How ironic that Joshua's bride should wear the sluttiest dress, I think some comments were made by the male Knots Landers.

    5. Angela Channing - FALCON CREST
    upload_2019-3-23_23-52-39.png
    The conniving old bitch proved that she could still rock a wedding dress. Just look at that sanctimonious smile on her face.

    ... in the same way that the bandage-style fingerless gloves of Pam's wedding outfit in Season 9 foreshadowed her mummified state the following year.

    1. Dana Carrington - Dynasty. She was the perfect Dynasty bride and my most favourite of the female love interests on the show. So much potential, such a good actress and such a beautiful bride. The way she sweeps in in that wedding dress like a queen. Perfection.

    My Falcon Crest knowledge is a bit patchy so can anyone please enlighten me as to how Maggie ended up being one of Angela's bridesmaids? I know this is Soapland but I thought they didn't get along given the fact that Angela tried to terrorise Maggie's family out of the valley, particularly in those earlier years?

    2. Fallon Colby - The Colbys. Part sugar plumb fairy, part perfume pretty Barbie. A cotton candy confection of pink taffeta and diamantes in all it's soft focus '80s glory.

    It wasn't always so openly hostile, and they were still family.
    It's the same as Alexis popping up every time the Carringtons are celebrating something, she's horrible but she's family. What can you do?

    Sable's Disney Villainess costume is also amazing in these scenes.

    Sable is always amazing. Her costumes are always amazing and her scenes are always amazing, for the Bible tells me so. Amen.

    1. Amanda

    This had to be a dress fit for a princess and it is absolutely beautiful. Classic and elegant.


    2. Paige

    I would have lost the gloves but the dress itself is gorgeous.


    3. Dana

    d072a9696f3989310739e491db34811d.jpg

    The dress is stunning. I'm not sure about the asymmetrical headpiece, something simpler might have been better, but everything else is flawless.


    4. Krystle

    dynasty-s1-07.jpg

    It's simple and it's the kind of thing Krystle might wear to breakfast on any given day, but it's still beautiful, and she looks gorgeous.


    5. Val

    I couldn't find a better image unfortunately. Val looked so pretty in this and I love her hair too.
