I've always dreamed about wearing a short wedding dress, and in the new comedy What Happens in Vegas, Cameron Diaz proves that an abbreviated frock can be absolutely chic.

When her fiance dumps her in front of all of her friends, straight-laced commodities trader Joy (Cameron Diaz) escapes to Las Vegas to let loose, only to enter into a spur of the moment wedding with laid back party guy Jack (Ashton Kutcher). The pair has no plans to stick with the marriage—until they win a three million dollar jackpot together and a judge orders them to live as man and wife or forfeit all claims to the money. With that, the bickering couple engage in a battle through marriage counseling, cohabitation and even meeting the in-laws as they each try to get the other person to back out of the relationship.

The hilarious Vegas wedding proves that you don't need extensive preparation to have a memorable ceremony. Cameron looks amazing in an off-the-shoulder champagne jersey gown accessorized with pearls from Claire's Accessories and a Paula Varsalona tiara, and the pink and white chapel is charmingly kitschy. See if the couple can make the marriage work in the movie, in theaters everywhere today. —Kathryn Papanek
