A behind-the-scenes look at creating Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway's bridal fashion

In the new movie Bride Wars, newly engaged best friends Liv (Kate Hudson) and Emma (Anne Hathaway) have always shared a dream of marrying at the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City. But unlike their wedding plans, the two brides' styles are anything but similar. Lawyer Liv favors designer pieces in neutral and muted tones for a classic, streamlined look, while school teacher Emma mixes and matches vintage clothing with colorful accessories.

We asked the movie's costume designer Karen Patch to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the wedding dresses and standout outfits from the hit romantic comedy and tell us how she chose styles well-suited for each bride-to-be's personality.
