Wedding movies put a smile on your face because they are fun and entertaining. Popping some popcorn and sitting down to watch a movie is a welcome distraction from the stresses of planning a wedding.
If you’ve stumbled directly upon this page, let us suggest that you start at the beginning of our Top 25 list of wedding movies.
Top 25 Wedding Movies of All-Time
The movie is about a reverend who puts an engaged couple through a grueling marriage preparation course to see if they are meant to be married in his church. Are you going through a “marriage prep course” right now?
14Made of Honor
Patrick Dempsey makes his full transition to romantic-comedy stardom in Made of Honor. He plays Tom, a nice guy but a serial dater with a girlfriend in every zip code of New York; Michelle Monaghan is Hannah, Tom’s BFF since college, who’s decided she wants marriage and family.
When she becomes unexpectedly engaged to Colin (Journeyman’s Kevin McKidd, rather McDreamy himself), Tom realizes what the viewer’s known all along–that Hannah is in fact his dream woman. It’s When Harry Met Sally… meets My Best Friend’s Wedding–but thankfully, Dempsey’s Tom is far more sympathetic than Julia Roberts’ snide schemer.
13Father of the Bride
Father of the Bride is a comedy about letting go and even if you’ve seen it several times, it still a wonderful movie to watch with your parents. The basic premise is: “Love is wonderful. Until it happens to your only daughter.”
The film stars Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, George Newbern, Martin Short, B.D. Wong and Kieran Culkin. It is a remake of the 1950 movie of the same name. In 1995, a sequel, Father of the Bride Part II, was released.
American Wedding was the last decent movie in the American Pie series (the rest are just plain dumb). This 2003 comedy is a sequel to American Pie and American Pie 2. It was written by Adam Herz and directed by Jesse Dylan.
The story has the friends from the first two films getting together again, this time to celebrate the wedding of Jim (Jason Biggs) and Michelle (Alyson Hannigan). If you’re not familiar with the American Pie series of movies, then let us warn you that they are not family-friendly and they are highly raunchy.
If you were to watch this movie just to see what dresses not to order for your bridesmaids, then you would be doing your best of friends a big favor because this movie features some of the most hideous bridesmaid dress trends (and believe us – its not really that far fetched).
All in all, this movie is 111 Minutes of pure fun – a fast paced comedy with great cast, good and almost believable script, and Katherine Heigl & James Marsden have good chemistry on screen.
Is it obvious what movies are left or do you think we might have a couple surprises left up our sleeve?
