Cobie Smulders Wedding Dresses

When you’ve been engaged for three years, you seemingly have lots of time to shop for a wedding dress — or in Cobie Smulders’s case, pick two!

The How I Met Your Mother star tied the knot with longtime love (and Saturday Night Live breakout) Taran Killam on Saturday, and wore two gowns for the big occasion.

To start the evening, the actress selected a long, lacy number by Claire Pettibone with elaborate detail around the neckline. The gown had a small train and a dramatic plunging back with a ruffle detail.

Later in the night, as festivities got going at the Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort in Solvang, Calif., the newlywed changed into a shorter dress, this one sleeveless with a high neckline and flouncy skirt. She paired the frock with a mint-green sweater and feminine white flats that featured matching mint-green flowers.

While wedding planning earlier this year, Smulders said that she was looking forward to the nuptials — but her 3-year-old daughter Shaelyn was even more excited.

“She really wants a dress,” the actress shared, “and she wants white shoes.” Hope she got her wish, too! Tell us: What do you think of Smulders’s dresses? Which is your favorite?

Love both of them and they both look stunning on her, that is her style and she looks great in anything. She is so petite and beautiful. I prefer the short one though. Mint green is a great paring color!!! Go Cobie and Congratulations.

Love love love the ceremony dress. So refreshing to see a gown that’s not strapless! Those are pretty but it seems like every single bride goes that route. I like seeing something different.

LOVE that dress! So tired of the strapless-sweetheart-neckline. I don’t recall when a trend has lasted so long and donned so many of my friends that spend months and a fortune to be ‘different,’ when they all look the SAME!

The two of them are simply breath taking but i think the short one is the best

they’re both horrible. Seriously, if I had that much money I’d get myself dresses that flatter my body a little more..

The two of them are simply breath taking that you cant tell which is better than the other
