Here at BRIDES, we're constantly reminiscing about the weddings of our favorite iconic brides — from all the #TBT bridal hairstyles, to the cute couple pics, and the of-the-moment gorgeous gowns. And it sounds like one of those iconic brides has been doing the same! Priscilla Presley recently revealed that if she could relive one memory, it would be the day she tied the knot with the legendary crooner, Elvis Presley.
In an interview with the UK talkshow, Good Morning Britain, the rock-and-roll queen shared that she still fondly remembers her wedding day — despite the fact that she and Elvis divorced four years before his death. When asked what one moment she would like to relive with the late singer, she said: "Probably our wedding," the 70-year-old actress said, according to Southwestern Ontario. "It was really a nice wedding." Well, we can definitely attest to that!

"It wasn't a fanfare," Presley continued, comparing her own nuptials to the over-the-top, glamorous Hollywood weddings of today. "It was all arranged where it was very private [and] then we had our friends join us all in Memphis after that. It wasn't like it is today where everyone has the biggest, the best, the most expensive wedding." Ahem, Kim K... (But who are we kidding? That lavish Italian soirée had us glued to our TV screens!)
Even though the marriage didn't stick, we love that Priscilla still floats back to the memories of that lovely day from time to time — we do, too! From the beautiful bride's voluminous veil and luxe lace sleeves, to her ultra-mod, Twiggy-esque bridal makeup, Priscilla's wedding day look is iconic for a reason. The rock-and-roll couple's 1967 Las Vegas nuptials may have ended sadly, but the trip down memory lane is still just as sweet as their six-tiered wedding cake!
