It”s that time of year again, you know the time when you spend your evenings alone, under a duvet, with enough Dairy Milk to last a lifetime/a nightime, whilst watching Love Actually for probably the 30th time. But apparently our favourite scene could have been very different indeed according to Grazia.
Before we go on, please say that you also spend your evenings in a familiar fashion, otherwise we just made a rather embarrassing revelation.
Now, when we imagine our own wedding we can”t help but picture the films opening scene. As we walk down the aisle with our new husband, only to be surprised by a gospel choir and some well hidden flutists. Except in our fantasy, our husbands best friend isn”t in love with us…

But, in an interview with Grazia, the film”s costume designer, Joanna Johnston admitted that Keira”s original wedding dress was meant to look rather different.
“Richard Curtis wanted (Keira”s) character to be kind of sexy, even as a bride. He wanted her to be dressed ready for the end of the scene where they”re partying, so he had this idea of a crop top, with a bare tummy.”
But Joanna felt this might have been a bit too much. “I told Richard, “You don”t want a bare tummy going into church!””. “So I went for a sheer, layered style instead with petal details underneath; gauzy and multi-layered.”
No shade to any crop top wearers out there, but we love Keira”s dress and we kind of can”t imagine it any different.
Good work Joanna.
