K-dramas are a fount of inspiration. From delicious food, aesthetic cafes and filming locations, to even room pegs, there's so many things you can learn from K-dramas. To add to this growing list, you can also source for wedding inspo from your favorite K-drama shows! Below, we curate 10 of the best wedding dresses we spotted on K-dramas that you'll also want to wear on your special day!
1. Cheon Song Yi, My Love from the Star
One of Jun Ji Hyun's most stylish characters, Cheon Song Yi, not only has an enviable designer wardrobe but also has the capacity to think ahead. Only Song Yi would think of choosing this gorgeous Oscar de la Renta wedding frock before even getting the actual proposal!
Get the look: Go for an lace-embellished bodice that flows into an A-line silhouette. Achieve a sheer look without actually baring too much skin by having a skin-toned lining in your dress.
2. Se Hwa/ Shim Cheong, Legend of the Blue Sea
Here's another Jun Ji Hyun entry that's worthy of a spot in this list! We're in love with Shim Cheong's make-believe dress in Legend of the Blue Sea for a couple of reasons. One, this Zac Posen dress delivers elegant minimalism—proving you don't need much details on your wedding gown for it to look amazing. Two, we're all for the asymmetrical neckline and its body-hugging silhouette, reminding us that a good fit will make any blushing bride look stunning.
Get the look: Copy Shim Cheong's dress by incorporating ruffles into your dress! Keep the rest of your gown free from appliqués, beads, and any other embellishments to keep the eyes focused on the dramatic ruffle detail.
You can also opt for pleats in lieu of ruffles for a more minimalist look.
3. Kim Hye Jin, She Was Pretty
Kim Hye Jin's transformation in She Was Pretty wasn't just her most notable scene in the series. On the last episode of the K-drama, we see her turn into a gorgeous bride, arm in arm with her childhood sweetheart. On top of the sweet moment, she walks down the aisle clad in a dainty Jenny Packham frock.
Get the look: If you're like Hye Jin who favors delicate lace and would like to accentuate your collarbones, we suggest you opt for a lace bodice with a bateau neckline.
4. Kim Mi So, What's Wrong With Secretary Kim
Kim Mi So's bridal look is a refreshing step away from her wonted office uniform. She looked absolutely ethereal clad in this lace-embroidered, off-the-shoulder wedding dress, complete with a tulle ball gown skirt.
Get the look: An off-shoulder detail is flattering on just about anyone! Now, if you'd like to accentuate your decolletage more, you can pair your off-shoulder with a sweetheart neckline. Be sure to opt for featherlight fabrics to get that ethereal look, just like Mi So's gown.
5. Choi In Ha, Pinnochio
Choi In Ha, a reporter diagnosed with the Pinocchio syndrome (she gets hiccups every time she tells a lie), likes to tell things as it is. And her no-nonsense attitude reflects in her bridal frock of choice. It's form-fitting, pristine, simple, yet feminine and elegant.
Get the look: A mermaid gown silhouette can easily be pulled off by any bride. Since the gown follows your natural curves, the dress flatters your best assets as it cascades into a gorgeous train.
6. Cha Yu Ri, Hi, Bye Mama
Cha Yu Ri's first wedding gown is an effortless take on lace, fit for brides who prefer an uncomplicated dress over heavy ball gowns or long trains. Plus her frock is totally re-wearable, too!
Get the look: Fuss-free brides can opt for lace-laden dresses that graze the ankles. This ensures maximum comfort as your nuptial celebrations goes on. It's also a safe length that you can easily wear to any other occasion!
7. Cha Yu Ri, Hi, Bye Mama
Yu Ri's reception outfit boasts another simple yet sophisticated gown. We like how she incorporated the trendy puff sleeve into her gown without going overboard.
Get the look: If you're after the same dainty vibe as Yu Ri's reception gown, opt for an eye-catching puff sleeve detail on your wedding dress. No need for excessive beadings or heavy embroidery—the sleeves will surely do all the talking!
8. Do Bong Soon, Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
Don't let Do Bong Soon's petite frame fool you. She may be pint-size but she is definitely an unbreakble, tough cookie! But we fully see her as a stunning bride dressed in a frock fit for her tiny frame. We like her mullet style dress that helped in preventing her bridal gown from drowning her small body.
Get the look: If you're petite just like Bong Soon, you may want to consider a midi dress so you won't be engulfed by your dress. Opt for featherlight textiles, too, so you can freely move and breathe!

9. Yoon Ji Ho, Because This Is My First Life
Here's another minimalist wedding gown that has a lot of potential. Yoon Ji Ho's halter-cut, A-line dress is a sight to behold if you're after uncomplicated and easy bridal wear. There's less to worry in nailing this gown. All you need to pay attention to is the fit and fabric!
Get the look: Just because it's unadorned, doesn't mean you have to settle for boring. You're free to add some pockets (you'll thank yourself later for this) or a gorgeous bow or ruffle at the back, too! Or if you're more comfy in showing some skin, perhaps a low-back cut instead! The possibilities are endless!
10. Ji Eun Tak, Goblin
There's so much to love about Ji Eun Tak's wedding dress. It's airy, sophisticated, and not to mention re-wearable, too! Her removable sheer capelet made the whole look fit for a rustic-themed and intimate wedding. Adorable!
Get the look: We love any dress that can be worn and styled multiple ways. And with a little creativity, you can also apply this to your wedding dress. If you're a bride who's after getting the most bang out of her buck, then you might want to explore two-piece frocks!
