Unlike conventionally classic movie brides, Rachel McAdams' character dons a short, pink wedding dress to marry Channing Tatum in The Vow, in theaters today. The dress—a vintage find customized by the costume designer—is so delightfully spontaneous, so... so... rock-star bride meets Pretty in Pink meets Prom Queen 1994. While the look is understandably not for everyone, those of you with an extra dose of Molly Ringwald should check out these three similar dresses below from bridal and bridesmaid designers.

Each of these dresses by Monique Lhuillier (left), Alfred Angelo (center), and Alvina Valenta (right) evoke the girlish, could-care-less-what-you-think spirit of McAdams' wedding dress. Monique Lhuillier's version softens the look with pale chiffon and a bow at the waist, while Alfred Angelo's take mimics the neckline with a ruched bust and emphasized waist. The Alvina Valenta dress, on the other hand, interprets McAdams' look into a white satin bodice with a flouncy pink tulle overlay skirt.
