Wedding Themed Movies…We all Love Them

I’m a huge fan of Wedding Movies. They get me every time. My husband tells me I have problems, but there is something about them. I actually have a collect just of wedding related movies, pretty much any film with a wedding in it.

Some of my favorites are Bride Wars, 13 going on 30, The Notebook, Runaway Bride, 27 Dresses, Sweet Home Alabama and Momma Mia to name a few.

There are so many out there enjoy.So, brides grab your bridesmaids and have some fun watching some of these hilarious films. You will want to watch them over and over again.I once heard a theory that all good comedies end with a wedding, because comedies provide happiness, and the promise of a new beginning provides the most warmth, or joy, to the human spirit. Not too sure if it is true, but it sure helps in my eyes. Check out some of these films. Maybe you will be inspired like I was.

Here are some to check out:
Made of Honor: For Tom (Patrick Dempsey), life is good: he’s sexy, successful, has great luck with the ladies, and knows he can always rely on Hannah (Michelle Monaghan), his delightful best friend and the one constant in his life. It’s the perfect setup until Hannah goes overseas to Scotland on a six-week business trip… and Tom is stunned to realize how empty his life is without her. He resolves that when she gets back, he’ll ask Hannah to marry him — but is floored when he learns that she has become engaged to a handsome and wealthy Scotsman and plans to move overseas. When Hannah asks Tom to be her “maid” of honor, he reluctantly agrees to fill the role… but only so he can attempt to woo Hannah and stop the wedding before it’s too late.
27 Dresses: Katherine Heigl (Knocked up, TV’s Grey’s Anatomy) lights up the screen in this charming romantic comedy from the screenwriter of The Devil Wears Prada.” Heigl stars as Jane, a romantic, completely selfless woman who has been a bridesmaid in no less than 27 weddings. Unfortunately her own happy ending seems to be nowhere in sight. Until her younger sister Tess captures the heart of Jane’s boss — on whom Jane has a secret crush inspiring Jane to change her “always-a-bridesmaid” destiny.
Sweet Home Alabama: A rising New York clothing designer who suddenly finds herself engaged to the city’s most eligible bachelor. But this is no fairy tale romance for Melanie. She has skeletons in her fashion-filled closet that include Jake — the backwoods husband she married in high school who refuses to divorce her. Determined to end their marriage and sever all ties with her past once and for all, Melanie returns to Alabama. But home starts to tug at her heartstrings, and what she thought she wanted may not be what she wants at all.

Father of the Bride:The befuddled father who has a hard time letting go of his young daughter (Kimberly Williams) when she unexpectedly announces her plans to wed. The “I do’s” and don’ts of her big day prove no small feat for George as he runs into an off-the-wall wedding planner (funnyman Martin Short), his patient, level-headed wife (Diane Keaton), and hysterical hitches.
This is the movie that inspired my husband and mine ceremony. Let just say I feel in love with their vows. A Walk to Remember: Love brings together what peer pressure and lifestyles seek to keep apart in this coming-of-age story based on the bestselling book. Teen idol Shane West and multi platinum recording star Mandy Moore star as two high schoolers — she a straitlaced preacher’s daughter and he an unmotivated delinquent. When events thrust him into her world, he begins an unexpected journey he’ll never forget.
The Wedding Singer: Adam Sandler stars in this movie about a wedding singer who was jilted at the altar, and who becomes the worst wedding singer. Drew Barrymore is Sandler’s costar.
The Wedding Planner: Mary Flore is a wedding planner whose singular dedication to her work has kept her from finding the man of her dreams. When she finally meets Mr. Right, he turns out to be the groom from one of her upcoming weddings.
Father of the Bride: Steve Martin and Diane Keaton star in this romantic comedy, which is a remake of the original Father of the Bride staring Spencer Tracy. Martin Short is the wedding planner in the movie, and he steals the show. Kimberly Williams played the bride-to-be in Father of the Bride. This is a wedding movie that focuses more on the parents of the bride than the bride herself.
Four Weddings and a Funeral: Starring Hugh Grant and Andie Macdowell, this is one of the highest grossing British romantic comedies in their history. Four Weddings made Hugh Grant a star overnight. Andie Macdowell stepped into the role just two weeks before filming, after original actress dropped out. Four Weddings is one of Julia Roberts’ favorite movies.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding: Based on the real life experiences of Nia Vardalos, a Greek Winnipeg-based actress, this romantic comedy was originally a one-woman play. Tom Hanks’ wife Rita convinced Hanks to make the movie; he had to convince Vardalos to put more kissing and make out scenes in the movie. It’s definitely one of the funniest, most culturally interested of these top ten wedding movies.
My Best Friend’s Wedding: Another Julia Roberts movie, she costarred with Cameron Diaz and Dermot Mulroney. Roberts is determined to put a stop to her best friend’s wedding (Mulroney is marrying Diaz in the movie). In an interview about this movie, Roberts said a wedding should be “a party to say we all believe in this love.” Director P.J. Hogan said this top ten wedding movie has a Shakespearian feel.
