Movie weddings can be romantic and beautiful, but they can also be great failures. Either way, they leave an imprint on our brains as moviegoers. Are you bridezilla or the easy-breezy bride? Do you want a fairy-tale wedding or something completely low-key?
This summer’s Keanu Reeves-Winona Ryder movie, Destination Wedding, had us thinking about some of the most memorable weddings in movie history. Their characters bond over hating the bride, the groom and weddings in general, but weddings in films are often the most significant parts of a movie.
Kimberly Williams-Paisley was the most perfect bride of the 1990s in Father of the Bride for some movie fans, while others related to Katherine Heigl’s story in 27 Dresses. A film like The Princess Bride is one of the most romantic, while Sex and the City provides a less-than-ideal attempt to get Carrie and Big to the altar.
They are all moments we will never forget for the drama, tears, laughter and joy they bring to the screen. Here are some of the most epic movie weddings that come to mind.
