The Top 5 Wedding Movies of All Time

Movies are a look into a fantasy world. And just like real weddings, weddings in movies are pure fantasies. Of course, what’s a wedding without a little bit of drama and excitement along the way? Weddings are supposed to be fun, exciting, and bit crazy, and Hollywood always seems to make this point with its romantic comedy films that have everything to do with weddings.

Take a look at (in my opinion) the best 5 wedding movies of all time:

My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)
Starring Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, and Cameron Diaz, this wedding film is all about friendship and finding love in the most unexpected places. Julia plays Julianne Potter, a New York restaurant critic, who attempts to sabatoge her best friend’s wedding–her best friend being Michael O’Neal who she’d once dated briefly. As you can imagine, plans go awry and just when you think Julianne’s going to win the guy, Hollywood throws a little surprise your way.

Wedding Crashers (2005)
What’s a list of great wedding movies without Wedding Crashers? This comedy film follows two friends who frequently crash wedding parties in order to meet women. Through lies and extravagant stories made up to make themselves much more interesting, they of course always become the life of each party. Through a series of unlikely events, the two friends face ups and downs through this hilarious film.

The Wedding Date (2005)
This film is a bit more on the romantic side with some hints of laughter throughout. It stars Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. The film is about a young women from New York who travels to London to be the Maid of Honor in her sister’s wedding. The best man, however, is her ex-fiance, and in an attempt to make him jealous, she hires an escort to the wedding instead. This escort is none other than Dermot Mulroney himself, and naturally, as you might have guessed, his good looks and charming personality begin to win over the girl.

27 Dresses (2008)
Ever own 27 bridesmaid dresses? Most girls don’t. But for frequent bridesmaid Jane (played by Katherine Heigl), owning that many dresses is the norm. The film follows a young woman who always seemed to help others out with their weddings, being a bridesmaid for 27 weddings. At one point in the film, she attends two weddings simultaneously. Talk about commitment! Like all good wedding movies go, she meets a guy. And you can only imagine what happens from there.

The Proposal (2009)
The Proposal takes a twist on the classic wedding movie. It’s directed by the same woman who directed 27 Dresses. In this unconventional wedding film, Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) must find a man to wed in order to avoid being deported back to Canada. Who is said man? None other than Ryan Reynolds, who plays Andrew Paxton, and Margaret Tate’s assistant at work. Once she convinces him to propose, she must learn everything from being around his family to the little details about each other. Does the marriage happen? Do they end up falling in love? There’s only one way to find out.
