Yoko Ono Got Married in Sneakers and a Miniskirt 49 Years Ago Today

Erin Fitzpatrick

Not into the cookie-cutter wedding gowns? Whether you're preparing for impending nuptials or not, there's one alternative bride you could look to for inspiration: Yoko Ono. Today marks the 49th anniversary of her wedding with John Lennon, and Ono's unconventional—yet totally chic—outfit is definitely worth revisiting. 

The duo was photographed holding up their marriage certificate in front of the iconic Rock of Gibraltar near Spain on March 20, 1969. Ono wore a wide-brim hat, T-shirt, and miniskirt along with our favourite part of the look: sneakers and thigh-high socks. How's that for a laid-back bridal look? Scroll down to revisit the legendary couple's wedding day.
