Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow were married for less than two years — he served her with divorce papers on the set of Rosemary's Baby after she refused to quit the film to work on his movie The Detective. But, for a brief moment, they were very, very attractive together.

Now she's married to a guy named Ned Rocknroll, but back in 1998, Kate Winslet married fellow actor Jim Threapleton. The marriage was short-lived — the couple divorced in 2001, and she went on to marry Sam Mendes in 2003 (that relationship lasted until 2010), but they'll always have this very Titanic-influenced wedding.

This image isn't from a wedding, per se, but rather a fabulous runway look worn by model Angie Bowie, that we had to share. It's a knit wedding dress with cock feathers sewn in, created by the designer Yuki. See why we had to share?!

We admit, we're not too familiar with British singer-songwriter Peter Sarstedt's music, but does it really matter? He's got the most amazingly perfect '70s mustache ever, and his bride, musician Joanne Meill, has the dreamiest Prell girl hair. Plus, the flower girl? Too cute.

Oh these two — aren't they amazing? Yoko Ono and John Lennon were married in Gibraltar in 1969, wearing matching white turtlenecks. Perfect.
