Most portray love in all its glory, bringing tears of joy to the audience. And then there are those which make the bride out to be a beast!

After all, there are many reasons to watch a good wedding movie. First off, its a fantastic way for soon-to-be brides and grooms to get into the wedding mood. Wedding-related humor could also help alleviate those pre-wedding jitters. And, you can always pick up some ideas for your own dream wedding!
So why not take some time off from your extremely busy wedding planning schedule to relax with your loved one and watch a wedding flick. You are most likely to relate to the brides character, and perhaps even laugh your worries away at the seriousness of it all!

Father of the Bride: An all-time favorite wedding movie of many, this flick would be nice to watch with the parents.
