Watch Now or Forever Hold Your Peace: The 20 Best Wedding Music Videos Ever
It's June, and wedding season is in full swing. So to celebrate, we've compiled a list of the best matrimony-themed musical videos of all time, from the romantic to the dramatic to the just plain ridiculous. Just say "I do" and watch all 20 now!
20. Beyoncé – Best Thing I Never Had (2011)
Queen Bey proved that Sean Carter is the luckiest groom in the world, as she radiantly paraded around in white wedding-night lingerie and an $85,000 Baracci couture gown.
19. Mariah Carey – We Belong Together (2005)
In the video for her massive comeback single, the emancipated Mimi rocked the same Vera Wang wedding dress that she wore at her 1993 nuptials to record executive Tommy Mottola, whom she divorced in 1998. Eat your heart out, Tommy.
18. Paula Abdul - Will You Marry Me? (1992)
What man wouldn't accept a marriage proposal from Paula Abdul, America's sweetheart? Incidentally, this video came out the same year that Paula married Brat Pack actor Emilio Estevez, whom she divorced two years later.
17. Naked Eyes – Always Something There to Remind Me (1983)
This was unrequited early-'80s love at its most bittersweet, set to a synthpop remake of a Burt Bacharach hit.
16. Nicki Minaj – Moment 4 Life (2011)
Her Minajesty "married" Drake in this controversial video, only fueling speculation regarding their real-life relationship. Clearly heeding the age-old tradition of "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something…pink," Nicki wore a cotton-candy-colored wig for her sashay down the aisle.
15. Human League – Love Action (1981)
This was basically the MTV equivalent of that famous wedding scene from The Graduate. Apparently a lot of English synthpop frontmen were getting jilted at the altar back in the '80s.
14. Georgia Satellites – Keep Your Hands to Yourself (1986)
Before "Honey Boo Boo" and "Duck Dynasty," there was this video. The ultimate redneck wedding was depicted in this fun clip, complete with pickup-truck processional, fried-chicken catering, and an eight-months-pregnant blushing bride.
13. Pink – I Don't Believe You (2009)
Pink donned the same the wedding dress she wore to her real-life wedding to Carey Hart for this video. But did she actually rollerblade at her wedding, like she did in this vid? We'd like to imagine yes.
