My daughter is getting married next month, so I have weddings on the brain. As every wedding movie shows us, it is fun and extremely stressful to plan a wedding, not to mention expensive. As the wedding draws near, I can’t help but think about some of my very favorite wedding movies. Here is a list of my top 10 wedding movies of all time;
1. Father of the Bride - This is my all time favorite Wedding Movie. Hilarious and so sweet, Steve Martin takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions as he deals with his daughter’s upcoming wedding. I dare you to watch this movie and not cry at the ending.
2. My Best Friend’s Wedding - Julia Roberts at her very best, this adorable movie has some of the finniest moments of any wedding movie.
3. Bride Wars – What could possibly compare to a wedding at the famed Plaza Hotel?
4. Steel Magnolias - I know it’s not specifically a wedding movie, but the wedding was a huge part of the story. Who could ever forget Shelby’s wedding colors of ‘Blush & Bashful’ or that horrible red velvet Armadillo Groom’s cake? This is one of my favorite crying movies, so grab the tissues and enjoy!
5. Runaway Bride - What is it about Julia Roberts and Wedding movies? She has a way of bringing out the romantic in all of us.
6. 27 Dresses – I am a mushy romantic at heart, and I simply love this movie. It’s worth watching for the collection of Bridesmaids dresses alone. I have to admit; I had quite a few hanging in my closet – including a horrid Lavender one with big puffy sleeves.
7. The Proposal– This movie is worth it just to see Betty White’s performance.
8. The Wedding Singer – Drew Barrymore & Adam Sandler! Enough said, right?
9. The Wedding Date– Yeah, this one barely made the list, but there is something really cute about this movie, and who couldn’t relate to the pressure to have a date for a wedding, just so your family will leave you alone.
10. The Princess Bride – Last but certainly not least, a list of wedding movies isn’t complete without Wessley & Buttercup. It is impossible to go to a wedding and not think about the priest saying, “Mawwiage, Mawwiage is what bwings us together”
