I’m currently finishing the wedding invitations for one of our friends, so I’m in full wedding mode. Here are my favorite wedding movies…
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) A young Greek woman falls in love with a non-Greek and struggles to get her family to accept him while she comes to terms with her heritage and cultural identity.
Why: Hey, I’m married to a non-Puerto Rican, I know how this goes.
Why: Love Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, plus the awesome 80’s music.
Father of the Bride (1991) George is a nervous father unready to face the fact that his little girl is now a woman.
Why: It always made me wonder how my dad will cope with us getting married, plus a certain hot dog bread scene.
27 Dresses (2008) After serving as a bridesmaid 27 times, a young woman wrestles with the idea of standing by her sister’s side as her sibling marries the man she’s secretly in love with.
Why: James Marsden, do I need to say more?
Why: Really cool guy perspective on weddings.
Why: Maybe silly, but I love the group’s rendition of “I say a little prayer”.
