Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt tied the knot secretly in France Saturday, with their kids serving variously as escorts, flower girls and ring bearers and a small group of family and friends around them. And while Pitt, 50, has already debuted his new “married man” hardware, we feel like we may be waiting a lot longer for any hints as to Jolie-related wedding regalia (though her engagement ring is certainly spectacular).
So in honor of Throwback Thursday, we’re remembering three outfits we picked for her way back when they got engaged — then bringing it into the present with three more looks we hope she considered for her walk down the aisle. And yes, we know she probably wore a classic suit or something she had in her closet (she’s just that cool) but that won’t stop us from having some fun speculating this morning.

Above, from our 2012 roundup of 10 suggestions for Jolie’s big day (and what we said about them at the time):
Slinky, silky Jenny Packham: “She’s still a bad girl,” Pitt recently said of his bride-to-be, who may choose to play up that side in a plunging, clinging, cleavage-baring number by one of her favored designers.
Structured jumpsuit by Theia: She’s worn plenty of pantsuits on the red carpet, so would you really be shocked if Angelina went with a similar look — like this design featuring oversize lapels and wide-leg trousers — for her big day?
Romantic, nontraditional Lazaro: It’s not leather pants (which she wore to her first wedding) but a nontraditional black gown — with a subtle sweetheart neckline and a peplum — is certainly in keeping with Angelina and Brad’s equally nontraditional relationship.

Above, three recent dresses that would be perfect for her sweet family ceremony:
Simple, understated Versace: Jolie, 39, turned to Versace for much of her Maleficent tour for unfussy but still slightly edgy looks. Minus the gold jewelry and booties, this ruffled, bias cut ivory slipdress would be an appropriate pick from her favorite designer.
Classic beaded Jenny Packham: It’s a silhouette she favors from a designer who’s always steered her right — and the ’20s-inspired shape and embellishments would look so romantic in the backyard of a picturesque French chêteau.
Over-the-top Elie Saab: She chose a somewhat bridal Saab for the Oscars this year, which got us thinking what a beautiful bride she’d make in one of the designer’s more opulent gowns. It’s got all her favorite things: sleeves, classic lines, a mature-yet-sexy vibe and a leg-baring option. What could be better?
What do you think she wore?
