ABOUT TIME TO GET MARRIED?! If you have no clue about weddings, this would be the best time and opportunity to indulge in some movies which are centred around getting married and weddings. Pay attention to the nitty-gritty details and pick some ideas up along the way, be it the wedding venue, dress or decor!
Bride Wars (2009)
This HAS to be on the list! The story revolves around two best friends who have spent their entire lives planning their wedding to be held at The Plaza Hotel in NYC. When planning their wedding with Marion St. Claire, New York’s most famous wedding planner, luck had it that both girls had booked The Plaza Hotel on the same date in June and this leads to a series of war between the two best friends.
Their wedding dresses stole the show as it was designed by infamous Vera Wang! The piece that Kate Hudson wore drew a lot of attention and it was a hot selling dress in the Vera Wang boutique in NYC. If that is your DREAM dress, go ahead and splurge or get an inspired piece!
Best quote from the movie: “You do not alter a Vera to fit you, you alter yourself to fit Vera.”
Mamma Mia (2008)
If you have not watched this award-winning musical romantic comedy, we’re judging you! This movie is about a bride-to-be who posted 3 wedding invitations to 3 different men, all in the hope of finding out which one of the three is her father. Inviting all 3 of them to Greece, she thought she would be able to figure out which of these men is her father and would be walking her down the aisle.
Filmed in Greece, this movie gives you a feel of what a destination wedding would look like and maybe even inspire you to have your very own destination wedding! Pay close attention to the setting, the venue and the atmosphere of the wedding.
Best quote from the movie: “I wanted to get married knowing who I am.” “You don’t find that from finding your father, Sophie, you find it by finding yourself.”
27 Dresses (2008)
This chick-flick right here is all about a girl who has been a bridesmaid 27 times but never a bride. She wrestles with the idea of being by her younger sister’s side as her sister marries the man she is in love with. She eventually gets married and all 27 brides who she helped, became her bridesmaid and wearing the dress she wore at their respective weddings!
You’ll get a peek into the different types of bridesmaid dresses out there. Even though some are definitely questionable and out of the ordinary, keep your options open and maybe you might even consider having a themed wedding!
Best quote from the movie: “Love is patient, love is kind, love means slowly losing your mind.”
An American comedy which revolves around a feisty competition between the maid of honour and a bridesmaid over who is the bride’s best friend. Coming from two different backgrounds, these two ladies are continuously battling over who is the better friend.
You can learn a thing or two about finding THE dress when they are at a dress fitting session. Also, you can vaguely get some ideas about hosting a bridal shower and bachelorette party ideas. The biggest takeaway would be to consider all bridesmaid’s financial situation and that female competition is pointless.
Best quote from the movie: “I’m telling you, hitting bottom is a good thing. Because there’s nowhere to go but up.”
