The It Couple of the 1950s, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh walked down the aisle in 1951. This was a wedding where Jerry Lewis was the best man, so you can imagine the star power in the room.
While it was iconic, it was a relatively intimate wedding with a small layered cake and a few floral centerpieces.
By the late '40s, modesty was fast becoming a thing of the past as necklines started to go lower and lower.
Curled and shoulder-length hair was becoming the fashion and veils became a little simpler.
The Beautiful Liz Taylor
In 1950 the Hollywood royal had her first of her 8 marriages. The 18-year-old Elizabeth Taylor married the 23-year-old Conrad "Nicky" Hilton on May 6. The wedding took place at the Bel-Air Country Club.
The event was hailed as the social event of the year. Taylor wore a Helen Rose designed gown. Rose was famous for creating the actress's wardrobe in the 1950 film Father of the Bride, as well as for designing Grace Kelly's wedding gown.
We've listed many iconic marriages so far that have not really stood the test of time. When Ronald Reagan married Nancy Davis, it was a little different. These two tied the knot at the Little Brown Church of the Valley in LA on March 4, 1952.
Their marriage ended up lasting 52 years until Reagan's death in the year 2004. We wonder what their secret was.
Speaking of presidents, in September 1953 John F. Kennedy married Jackie Bouvier in a dream wedding that took place in Rhode Island.
The media swarmed that event. Jackie's lace dress was supposedly made from 50 yards of material, while her veil originally belonged to her grandmother.
