The long-awaited conclusion of How I Met Your Mother may have been polarizing, but if there's one thing we can all agree upon, it's that Tracy's wedding dress (aka "The Mother") was legen — wait for it — dary. After being teased with flash-forwards for 208 episodes, it was beyond satisfying to see Mr. Mosby walk down that aisle, even if it took him five years after proposing to Tracy to finally do it. (Lily's toast summed it up best: "here's to a man with more emotional endurance than anyone I know.")
Our favorite moment: When Ted saw Tracy in her wedding dress for the first time at MacLaren's Pub, he almost lost it! Their nuptials take place years from now, so the show's stylist, Reiko Kurumada, wanted a timeless look á la Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy that would still hold up in the future. We found a gorgeous simple gown in the vintage section of a costume house… The dress fit her perfectly. No alterations needed at all. It was meant to be!” she revealed to E! Online.
