Sarah Jessica Parker felt "too embarrassed" to go dress shopping in the lead up to her wedding to Matthew Broderick.

Sarah Jessica Parker wishes she had spent more time choosing her wedding dress.

The former Sex and the City star is known for her bold fashion choices, and wore a black Morgane Le Fay dress with spaghetti straps and tiered skirt when she married actor Matthew Broderick in a surprise ceremony held in New York City in 1997.

But the 51-year-old shared in an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live! on Thursday night (06Oct16) that she wishes she had spent more time researching dresses and hadn’t gone bridal shopping on such as whim.

“Oh, I wish it was because I was bada**,” she said. “I just was too embarrassed to spend any time looking for a wedding dress. There was a store that I liked that I knew, and I just went and got whatever they had hanging.”

Though Andy was complimentary of the decision, Sarah, who launched a bridal shoe collection last year (15), said, “No, I would do it differently.”

Talking about her big day with Harper's Bazaar in 2009, the Ohio native told the magazine the one thing she would do-over if she and husband Matthew were to renew their vows would be to really go for that white wedding dress moment.

"I'd wear a beautiful, proper wedding dress, like I should have worn that day," she revealed.

The actress and her husband are parents to son James, 13, and twins Marion and Tabitha, seven.

And with her new show, Divorce, about to premiere on HBO, Sarah has spoken about how her own marriage compares with that of her character Frances’.

“It feels so separate that it doesn’t require comparison or a sigh of relief,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “When you’re an actor, I think, you don’t always have to use your own life to inform or look for relief.”
