Sex And The City (2008)
Although Carrie was jilted by her true love, Mr. Big, we still love this wedding. With a giant blue bird on her head and gorgeous Viviane Westwood gown, Carrie was a true vision. With the perfect location – the New York Library – we know that this wedding would have gone down in history – that is, if Big didn’t humiliate Carrie. Don’t worry, they end up having their City hall wedding (it’s not really a spoiler at this point).
Love Actually (2002)
Is there anything better than all your friends surprising you with a stunning rendition of All You Need Is Love by The Beatles right after your nuptials? Absolutely not. Juliet and Peter’s wedding was the perfect way to start off this iconic Christmas movie, with the happy couple bringing the majority of the cast together. Although they did have the worst DJ of all time and the food that tasted “like a baby’s thumb,” this movie wedding is one for the books.
The Godfather (1972)
While the iconic line “you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you ask me to do murder for money” has gone down in history, it is not Connie’s wedding that has made it on our list. Although this wedding opens up the iconic trilogy, it’s Michael’s wedding to Apollonia that remains a favourite. The heart-warming romance between these two leads to a gorgeous traditional Italian wedding that would bring a tear to anyone’s eye.
My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)
A jealous Julia Roberts? Yes please! You would expect childhood best friends Julianne and Michael to end up together, but no matter how hard she tried, Julianne could not stop Michael’s wedding to Kimberly. Their beautiful wedding showcases what it really means to love someone with all your heart. With a hilarious rendition of Say a Little Prayer by Aretha Franklin, this movie wedding goes down in history.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
OPA! The name of this movie says it all. This iconic movie shows the beauty of traditional Greek culture, from the hilarity of Ian being baptised to the over-the-top ceremony with simplistic traditions. Bringing together two cultures, this movie wedding goes down in history and highlights the intense craziness that comes with planning a wedding.
The Sound Of Music (1965)
How do you solve a problem like Maria? Marry her off to Captain von Trapp of course! This picturesque wedding gives us a truly beautiful couple, coming together despite the odds. With Maria’s stunning long train and the perfect Chapel in Salzburg, Austria, this movie wedding is bound to make anyone shed a tear.
Bride Wars (2009)
More than just a simple ceremony, the weddings in this film bring together lifelong best friends after a huge fight. With weddings on the same day and in the same location, this movie highlights the stresses that come with wedding planning and the importance of friendships, especially during hard times. With stunning venues and gorgeous gowns, we can’t get enough of this movie wedding.
Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
Although this movie doesn’t necessarily centre around weddings, Pinky’s wedding to Teetu highlights the Bhamra’s gorgeous Indian culture. Adorned in a gorgeous traditional red wedding sari, along with beautiful henna tattoos, Pinky’s wedding is a celebration of love and colour.
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
A double wedding between best friends is the perfect way to end this iconic 1950s film. Finally snagging their dream husbands, Lorelei and Dorothy wear matching lace gowns and veils in a huge ceremony with all their friends and family. Singing while walking down the aisle, these two women are content as they have reached their goals as entertainers and now wives.
About Time (2013)
Veering away from the traditional white wedding, Mary wears a gorgeous red gown and walks down the aisle to Il Mondo by Jimmy Fontana, while her father-in-law dances crazily. If that wasn’t enough, a huge storm ruins the reception as everyone is drenched, rushing into the house. But fear not, the happy couple do not let this ruin their day, smiling the whole way through.
