"White Wedding" is a song by Billy Idol that appeared on his album Billy Idol (1982). Although "The Big 80's: Episode I" of VH1's Pop-Up Video trivia show claims Idol wrote the song to voice his displeasure with his sister's fiancé (who impregnated her before marrying her), on an episode of VH1 Storytellers, Idol claimed that there was never any family resentment towards his sister, and that the song was simply heightened fantasy and nothing more.
It is often considered one of his most recognisable songs, although other Idol songs charted higher. It reached No. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100 on its original release, and reached No. 6 in the UK Singles Chart upon its re-release there in 1985, when it was reissued to promote the Vital Idol remix album.
