10 of Our Favorite Wedding-Themed Movies
Katherine Heigl takes the lead in this film playing a woman that’s served as a bridesmaid 27 times. There’s a lot of ugly dresses with poofy sleeves, funny moments, and a bit of romance involved in this one.
And James Marsden plays the love interest, so if that isn’t motivation enough to take a peek at the film, we don’t know what is.
If you’re looking for a flick that your groom will love too, this is it. The hilarious duo, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, team up and hit up some wedding receptions. In search of free alcohol and beautiful women, see what happens when John (played by Wilson) finally meets the lady of his dreams.
Will Reese choose the big city or her hometown in Alabama? Will she choose the boy she fell in love with when she was just a little girl or her fiance from her brand new life? It’s romantic, it’s funny, and completely charming.
And there are a couple twists and turns that viewers will eat right up – including a husband from home that won’t divorce her.
Father of the Bride (1 & 2) hold spots as classics. Steve Martin plays a charming and lovable dad who has to finally let go of his little girl as she takes the plunge into marriage. Diane Keaton and Martin Short help to expand the laughs throughout the film and everyone easily falls in love with his daughter, played by Kimberly Williams.
An oldie by a goodie, this 1951 film features two classic movie stars, Fred Astaire and Jane Powell. Set in England during Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s wedding, this flick includes Astaire’s legendary dancing-across-the-ceiling routine. You’ll watch as the singing and dancing brother-sister duo find their matches within all the chaos.
Are you in the mood for a musical? Filled with music from Abba and based on the hit Broadway play, this all-star cast will have you laughing, singing, dancing, and falling in love. Watch as Amanda Seyfried tries to figure out which of her mother’s (Meryl Streep) past lovers is her dad!

If you have yet to see this movie, you’ll be walking away from it singing that little diddy. Julia Roberts is the star of the show in this hilarious and heart-wrenching tear-jerker. Her best friend, played by Dermot Mulroney, is getting married – just on the cusp of their pact coming to a close. A pact that included that by the time they came of a certain age and they weren’t married – they would marry each other.
Now, he’s about to say I do to Cameron Diaz and she realizes that she’s in love him.
Julia Roberts hits the big screen here too, and pairs up with the man she made Pretty Woman with – Richard Gere. The chemistry between them is electric, as we already know, and this movie shows it.
Playing a woman that’s left three grooms at the altar – and nearing four – we watch as Gere (a journalist covering her heartbreaking skills) falls in love with the one who runs.
A classic in our book, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is full of hilarious family fun. In fact, it was so good, it scored an Oscar nomination for it’s incredible writing and is still the highest-grossing wedding film of all time.
