Bridesmaids movie costumes worn by Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph...

2011's Bridesmaids was one of the last movies I watched where I almost split my sides and was literally gasping for breath from laughing so much, so I was extremely excited to see these original outfits from the hit female cast comedy on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on January 23, 2014.

It seems only fitting that for a film about someone getting married there should be at least one wedding dress on display, and since Melissa McCarthy stole the show in her breakout performance as 'Megan', it's great to also see one of her outfits as part of the NBC Universal Experience exhibit in the theme park's Lower Lot.

In the romantic comedy written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, Melissa McCarthy plays the scene-stealing future sister-in-law, 'Megan', of bride-to-be, 'Lillian' (Maya Rudolph).

The actress wears this outfit when she has a heart to heart with Kristin Wiig's character 'Annie Walker', and confesses that taking nine puppy bridal shower favours may have been three too many.

Leesa Evans was one of the Costume Designers on the movie (alongside Christine Wada) and was responsible for the design of Maya Rudolph's rejected hideous wedding dress by the fictional fashion designer, 'Lady St. Petsios JuJu'.

If this gown isn't your style, maybe you should check out this wedding dress from 1991's Father of the BrideMia Wasikowska's period wedding dress from 2011's Jane Eyre or maybe even the otherworldly Dejah Thoris wedding outfit from John Carter.

I'm not the biggest fans of comedies, but seeing these original costumes from Bridesmaids was a real treat and made me want to watch the movie again and revisit those funny characters.
