If you haven’t heard, Prince William is set to marry fiancée Kate Middleton this Friday. Coincidentally, this month is also Film Fest Month. So I thought of a really great idea: create your own film festival featuring some over-the-top, royally fabulous wedding scenes.
Grab a few girlfriends, beverages and snacks of choice, and join in on the celebration from your very own living room. Here are a few weddings that I really enjoyed, just to give you a few ideas:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Toula and Ian’s wedding is really big and really Greek. Seeing bridesmaids walk down the aisle with frilly, baby blue-colored dresses and the tallest up-dos you’ve ever seen is reason enough to watch.
The movie starts off with a big, Italian wedding for Connie. Nothing says party like an orchestra in the backyard and lots of singing and dancing. Michael and Apollonia’s wedding in Sicily is also cool to watch. I think it’d be fun to parade around the city after my wedding with a brass band and an entourage.
Father of the Bride
Annie Banks and Bryan MacKenzie have a fabulous church wedding. And even though the reception is at Annie’s parents’ house, wedding planner Franck ensures that it’s super-luxurious. The best part about the movie, though, is Annie’s dad’s heart-felt thoughts on his daughter growing up and getting married.
Juliet and Peter have the most memorable wedding scene. During the procession out of the church, singer Lynden David Hall and a gospel choir sing “All You Need is Love,” and guests join in, singing and playing trumpets and horns. So cool!
The Wedding Singer
Robbie and his band perform at Mrs. and Mr. Harrold Beltree’s wedding. I think that that’s one wedding I wouldn’t want to miss. It looks like it may have been an open bar, plus the band plays 80s favorites like “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” and “You Spin Me Round.”
My Best Friend’s Wedding
Well Julianne is in love with her best friend, who also happens to be the groom, Michael O’Neal. After trying to convince him to marry her, Julianne realizes that Michael loves his fiancée Kimmy. Michael and Kimmy’s wedding is sweet, and though Julianne is heart-broken, she learns that life goes on.
