A classic British romantic comedy with lead actor Hugh Grant and a group of his friends that seem to just be unlucky in love.

Whilst paths cross and life’s intertwined over, you guessed it, four weddings and a funeral.

4// Wedding Crashers 

What’s the easiest way to get free booze and meet women? By crashing weddings of course. When the boss announces that his daughter is to be wed, the two comrades make it their mission to gatecrash this high-profile event.

But all fall awry when Owen Wilson’s character John locks eyes with the bridesmaid.

5// Mamma Mia

Independent hotelier Donna (played by Meryl Streep) prepares for her daughters’ wedding. But things take an unexpected turn when the daughter invites 3 men that could all potentially be her real father.

Add gorgeous Greek backgrounds and Abba sing-alongs and you have the recipe for a hit movie. This is actually one of our favorite wedding movies.

And if you want to come up with a good wedding reception playlist, good mother-daughter songs or even some wedding ceremony songs, then have pen and paper ready!

6// Father of the Bride 

A tale of a protective father that is trying to let his little girl go.

When she turns up after studying away with a fiance in tow, wedding plans begin and hilarity ensues along with emotional scenes that might bring out the tissues.

If you are looking for a few wedding movies to binge watch, then watch all the father and the bride movies.

I believe they are 3 now!

7// The Princess Bride

A favorite from childhood is The Princess Bride. A fairy tale adventure that shows true love can conquer evil no matter the distance between them.

With so many lovable characters from both sides, it’s the perfect wedding movie for the whole family.

8// The Wedding Planner

How can we have a list of the best wedding movies without including this one?

A wedding planner is given reason to believe in love again after a wondrous night spent with a gentleman that saved her life.

But little does she know that her work and love life are on a collision course straight for disaster.

9// Corpse of the Bride

Looking for something a little bit different than the usual wedding movie then this Tim Burton masterpiece is just the trick. I actually recently watched a few wedding movies lately and this one was different.

An unconventional love story in this animated movie will leave you full-hearted.

10// Muriel’s Wedding

Muriel has always dreamed of getting married, but with her oppressive father and being ostracized by her fellow peers she becomes an outcast that has never even been on a date.

When she meets fellow outcast Rhonda they leave for Australia where she changes her name and begins building a new life.

11// The Proposal

I know I already mentioned my favorite movie but I am a true romantic at heart and I love wedding movies. With this in mind, I am allowed to have more than one favorite right?

Because I really love The Proposal! This amazing comedy movie features Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, my two favorite actors. 

When a Canadian woman, Margaret Tate, learns that she may face deportation charges because of her expired visa she is determined to retain her position as Executive Chief. 

She convinces her assistant, Andrew Paxton, to temporarily act as her fiancé.

12// Just Married

The honeymoon is not a honeymoon if you take away all the fun from it.

Bumping into your ex during your honeymoon could be considered fun, but it depends on whose side you’re looking from at the situation.
