Here Comes the Bride...Movies

I mentioned in this post how I have way too many (ten) wedding movies in my personal collection. Probably half of my movies have to do with weddings #oops  I just love weddings and more importantly, wedding movies.


1. Father of the Bride Part 1
I'm a lover of Part 1 and 2, but Part 1 is definitely more wedding oriented. I love Steve Martin is most everything he's played in, but this movie takes the cake. P.S. How funny is Franck and the way he says "George Banks" and "Navy Blue"

2. Something Borrowed
Kate Hudson is like my idol.

3. 27 Dresses
A classic.
Favorite Quote: "Don't you have needs?" "No. I'm Jesus."

4. Mamma Mia
My mom saw this on Broadway with real singers, but I don't think Meryl Streep does a bad job. The guys on the other hand, some of them just can't sing!

5. Leap Year
All about a proposal and even though it's PG, it's not as childish as the rating lets on. Plus, this movie really makes me want to go to Ireland!

6. Bridesmaids
The most quotable movie of.all.time.

7. The Proposal
Rivals Bridesmaids in quotability. This is a movie that I can actually get Josh to watch with me!

8. Bride Wars
I love a good scandal, but I was still sad when Emma had to break up with her husband-to-be.
9. The Princess Bride
An oldie, but goodie.

10. The Wedding Date
 The first movie I think I ever watched where I saw a naked man's butt (scandalous I know). And how does she even find her date? Like he turned out GORGEOUS, but he could've been a serial killer. Hello!

If I had to choose a favorite, I couldn't. But...Top contenders: Father of the Bride and The Wedding Date.
What are your favorite wedding movies?


  1. Something Borrowed will alway be my favorite love/wedding movie. So cute.

  2. I love The Proposal, whenever it's on TV, my mom,, sister and I have to watch it! We quote it all the time!

  3. I haven't seen Bridesmaids or Mama Mia I shall add them to my movie night watch list. I love Revenge Of the Bridesmaids and Maid Of Honor.

    1. NEVER SEEN BRIDESMAIDS!? Omg. GO watch it tonight lol and Yes I love Maid of Honor!

  4. I love 27 Dress and Bridesmaids, o and the Wedding Date 2 funny the best

    1. We watched 27 Dresses last weekend at the Bachelorette Party I hosted and I had forgotten how funny it was!

    1. I've only seen in like once or twice so I don't remember a lot of it. Must have been good enough to own though haha

  8. Bridesmaids is still one of my favorite movies of all time! You just can't beat it. I also LOVE Father of the Bride, although I like part 2 better haha! Great picks!

    1. Yes to wedding crashers! My dad loves this movie too and wants to crash a wedding one day lol

  12. My Big Fat Greek Wedding is my all-time favorite wedding movie! I have seen it so many times I have definitely lost count!! I also really liked the Big Wedding- I watched it on Netflix earlier this year.

  13. I love them all. So many good wedding movies but I think Bridesmaids and The Proposal take the cake easily.

  14. I have such a soft spot for wedding based movies. If I had to choose my favorite though I think it would be 27 Dresses. It's just so fun - even if it's cheesy and predictable.

  15. I love Mamma Mia so much, it's so cheery and the scenery is just gorgeous!

  16. Oh I love movies so much. Especially wedding films. No shame. They make me feel all the feels!
    I loved Mamma Mia because of Pierce Brosnan's tortured singing voice (but anything ABBA makes me smile, really).

  17. The Proposal is possibly one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. The scene with Betty White and Sandra Bullock dancing around the fire...I laugh until I cry EVERY time. Also:

    "I can't swim!"
    "Hence...the boat."


  18. I love Bridesmaids, seriously so funny and one of my favorites

  21. Father of the Bride is my favorite movie of ALL TIME. Definitely need to watch some of these videos this weekend :)

  22. oh my word, we could be best friends! wedding movies are the best and my favorite are totally on that list!

  23. I think Wedding movies might be some of my favorite too! They are so funny yet have that tear jerking moment. Father of the Bride is an all around classic and a definite favorite of mine (the Party-Pooper song in the second one!!) and The Wedding Date is so amazing :)
