Shannon’s Pick – -Jacqueline Bouvier & JFK September 12th, 1953
Even as a young bride of 24, Jacqueline still possessed the poise, grace and subtle sex appeal she became known for. The new Mrs. Kennedy wore an Anne Lowe Wedding gown that was made of 50 yards of ivory silk taffeta and a full bouffant skirt woven with tiny white flowers.

Shannon’s Pick – -Sonny Bono & Cher: Married 1964 in Tijuana or in the USA in 1969?
It’s a mystery when their actual wedding date is, just as it is a mystery what the bride wore. I’m sure with Cher’s flair for the dramatic and her far out and sassy wardrobe; whatever she wore, she was quite a spectacle. Sexiest thing about Cher as a bride: on her wedding day, she did things here way: throwing convention, rules and other people’s judgement to the wind.
Stacey’s Pick – – Yoko Ono & John Lennon: March 20th, 1969
One of the most famous couples in the music industry, even though they may not be the favourite. Yoko’s outfit this day is definitely a statement of her personality, the peace loving bride wore a white mini-skirt with white knee high socks and instead of your traditional veil or headpiece she modeled a huge floppy sun hat. Yoko made a statement of individuality which is sexy no matter what!
Shannon’s Pick – – Bill Clinton & Hillary Rodham the law grads married in October 11th, 1975
After rejecting Bills proposal 3 times, Hillary finally agreed to take his hand in 1975 (we all have our opinion about whether that was the best opinionJ) Nonetheless, Hillary looked gorgeous, confident and strong in her Jessica McClintock lace gown purchased at Dillards. Her hair was loose, curly and beautifully framing her face. The sexiest thing about Hilary on her wedding day is her mysterious smile and the mischievous twinkle in her eye, which can be seen in many of her wedding photos. She looked ready to take on the world with her new husband and have a lot of fun while doing it
