A quickie wedding often means a quickie dress.
For celebs like Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski, who both surprised the world with spur-of-the-moment weddings, a custom-designed gown wasn't in the cards.
Schumer wore an off-the-rack Monique Lhuillier gown that she snatched up only four days before her wedding on February 13. Meanwhile, Ratajkowski went even more low maintenance with a mustard coloured suit from Zara when she tied the knot on February 23.
We're certainly not encouraging every loved-up couple to tie the knot tomorrow, but if you are, we imagine you'll be needing a dress in a hurry.
These stunning off-the-rack dresses (and one suit!) are readily available and won't let you down on your big day — even if you just decided on it a minute ago.
