A brand new Sex and the City limited series is coming, called And Just Like That, and we’re excited. Of course, we were sad to learn that Kim Cattrall won’t be reprising her role as saucy PR powerhouse Samantha Jones, but as we sit at home rotating between nothing but our leggings and sweatpants, we’re also desperately looking forward to all of the amazing fashion that will surely be featured heavily in this highly anticipated reboot. From Carrie’s designer shoe obsession to Miranda’s norm-core looks (which feel more on trend now than ever before), we can’t help but wonder what SATC will look like in the 2020s?
And while patiently pondering all of the wardrobe possibilities for this next installment, we decided what better time than the present to take a trip down memory lane and revisit all of the most iconic scenes from the original for some Spring 2021 wedding fashion inspiration? It’s definitely a year for civil ceremonies–cue Carrie’s city hall wedding to Big and Miranda’s fall garden nuptials. Most of us already know the answer to that age old question: Which SATC character are you? Now, let’s investigate whether or not the answer applies to wedding style too. Below, find out which SATC bride you are—and how to get the look.
The Carrie Bradshaw Bride
Carrie’s vintage label-less white suit is perhaps more relatable now than ever before. Yes, we realize her courthouse wedding only came after an attempted couture wedding, but this idea of two ceremonies is very current. For a very Carrie Bradshaw rehearsal dinner, we chose the white one shoulder midi dress with the flower appliqué from the first movie, and for the after-party? The iconic oversized button down that belongs to Big, of course!

The Charlotte York Bride
Those who firmly believe in true love and dream of one day having the most romantic wedding ever definitely relate most to Charlotte York Goldenblatt. She ends up with the love of her life—after a failed first marriage—and wore an ethereal dress for the happy occassion. We picked this pink Elizabeth Taylor-inspired look for the rehearsal dinner and the prettiest “something blue” for the day after brunch.

The Samantha Jones “Bride”
Let’s face it, Samantha will be single and fabulous forever. So while there most definitely isn’t a Samantha Jones wedding in the future, it doesn’t hurt to take some inspiration from her very sexy wardrobe. For the “ceremony,” we love her white power suit ensemble—it let’s her future partner know just who wears the pans. We’ve also picked out a look for taking care of business (e.g. meeting with her wedding planner). It’s all sexy, confident, and eye-catching—because that’s exactly what her wardrobe is known for.

The Miranda Hobbes Bride
For those who prefer something a little less “in-your-face,” we recommend channeling one’s inner Miranda and having a low-key garden wedding. The more unconventional the better. Opt for a velvet two-piece set for the ceremony; let loose at the bachelorette in some sexy lingerie; and make a statement at the poolside brunch in a bathing suit and colorful silk scarf.

Bonus: The Stanford Blatch “Bride” (or Groom)
We firmly believes Stanford deserves more recognition—and air time—in the Sex and the City reboot. He always had the best advice and took some of the biggest fashion risks on the show. For those channeling their inner Stanford, try an unconventional tuxedo jacket for the ceremony paired with a statement making blouse. And, for the after-party? Glitter and pink of course! Liza Minnelli would approve!
