If you thought reality TV could only belong to modern times, then you would be wrong. In 1954, CBS aired a daytime series called Bride and Groom in which it featured real-life couples who would get married on the air.
A show like this could have paved the way for shows like the Bachelor.
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.
The Movie Wedding
In 1955 this Christian Dior wedding dress made its way down the aisle in the very stylish wedding of actress Olivia Havilland. The actress donned the iconic gown while filming the romantic comedy The Ambassador's Daughter.
The long-sleeved and high necked dress looked simply breathtaking. The film was out the following year.
The meeting of two great worlds: Monaco Royalty and Hollywood. The 1956 wedding between actress Grace Kelly and the Prince of Monaco made serious headlines.
Kelly's wedding dress was designed by the iconic MGM designer Helen Rose. The dress is even on display at the Philadephia Museum of Art.
