Marriage in the Movies


We enjoy every crazy bridesmaid, every heartfelt moment between a bride and her mother, and the general fuss that goes into and surrounds the wedding planning process.

The following three movies, released 10 years apart from each other, focus their respective narratives on the wedding planning process. They also demonstrate how much has changed — and hasn’t — when it comes to planning the perfect wedding.

FATHER OF THE BRIDE (1991)
Is there any bride-to-be more perfect than Annie Banks McKenzie? Yes, the original 1950 version is a classic, but there is something about the aura that Kimberly Williams brings to the role that has every modern girl wanting to be just like her.

Plus, her storybook house was made for a backyard wedding. This movie oozes wedding inspiration, and borrowing ideas from it is basically required.

THE WEDDING PLANNER (2001)
What’s a girl got to do to stay married? Wedding planner Mary nails marital issues to wedding choices. While she plans lavish affairs for her clients, her would-be courthouse wedding and classic boat neck dress have a simple- elegance to them that you can’t not appreciate.

Even though this is not the wedding she ultimately follows through on, her style is effortless — and brides-to-be will covet her style along with her love affair with love.

BRIDESMAIDS (2011)
This movie gets real with the drama that comes with the typical wedding. Meet yet another Annie, only this one is a bridesmaid who just happens to be down on her luck.

She is the made of honor in her best friend’s wedding, where she must plan festivities with the other maids, including Helen, who is seemingly perfect in every way.

Brides, take note. Bride Lillie definitely could have been more sensitive to both friends. Also, don’t eat questionable fare before a fitting. Lessons abound in this romantic comedy.
