Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must have noticed the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle happened today. Most of the people were super excited about this. Some weren’t, but who cares about them? Anyway, while the royal family is partying it up in London, the rest of us are left wondering what it would be like to attend. But do not worry! If you are still in the mood for weddings, we’ve got you! Here’s a list of 5 films about weddings you could watch. If you do not like a happy ever after, these might not be for you. We suggest watching a certain Red Wedding instead in that case. Ready? Let’s go!
1. Wedding Crashers (2005)
Back in the early 2000s, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn were on the top of their game. Almost every single comedy involved them in some way. Yet one of the best comedies they starred in has to be Wedding Crashers. I mean, this was released in the time that trailers were still narrated, so it is a certified classic. The story is about two womanizers who sneak into weddings and try to get laid. This all changes when one of them falls in love. It is certainly one of the funniest films about weddings.
2. Bridesmaids (2011)
This film was released after the hype of the Hangover and dubbed as the female version of that film. Regardless of what they call it, it is hilarious. The film stars Kristen Wiigg and Annie Mumolo. The plot centers around the competition between the maid of honour and the bridesmaid, over who is the bride’s best friend. Naturally, this is a recipe for disaster.
3. The Hangover (2009)
This is a film I have seen over a million times already and I still very much enjoy it. The Hangover was a massive hit when it was released. The film was a breath of fresh air when it first hit the big screen and it remains a classic. It’s about three friends who wake up after a crazy night out in Vegas. Yet they don’t remember anything about what happened the previous night. Worst of all, the groom who was on the trip with them is missing. They make their way around Vegas to find him before his wedding.
4. Corpse Bride (2005)
Something completely different on this list is 2005’s Corpse Bride. It was released when Tim Burton was on the height of his game and stars his usual favourite actor duo Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. It’s about a shy groom who practises his wedding vows in the presence of a deceased young woman, who rises from the grave assuming that he has married her. It is once again another classic and a must-see for everyone who loves films.
5. Bride Wars (2009)
Perhaps not a classic, but still good mindless entertainment. Staring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, Bride Wars is about two best friends who become rivals when they schedule their weddings on the same day. Perhaps all of it could have been resolved if one of them moved their date, but hey, them we wouldn’t have a plot. It’s still very enjoyable though.
