If you're newly engaged or married, what better Halloween costume than a bride? Not only is it easy to pull off (hello, grab a veil and you're halfway there), but as these celebrities prove, there are so many ways to go bridal, whether creepy as the Corpse Bride, the Bride of Frankenstein, or the Bride of Chucky, sexy like Madonna's "Like a Virgin" bride, or funny, with a dead-on impersonation of an iconic bride from pop culture or history. Get inspired by these actresses, models, and more, who dressed as brides for Halloween.
Why not get the whole bridal party involved? Following the Royal Wedding in 2011, The Today Show hosts took a timely approach to their Halloween costumes: Ann Curry dressed as the bride, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Matt Lauer played Prince William, and Natalie Morales went as maid-of-honor Pippa Middleton. Savannah Guthrie wore a mask as Prince Charles, Meredith Viera served as Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry was played by Al Roker, and Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. Talk about a great group costume idea!

With Regis and Kelly and made a hilarious Humphries on stilts. They couldn't have known, though, that the couple would announce their split on that very same day.
