Learning life's lessons, one movie at a time.

Best Movie Wedding Scenes

Wow! I realized today it has been quite awhile since I’ve posted anything. Popcorn Dinner has been sadly neglected! But I have a good reason for being absent so long. Recently I’ve been focusing most of my time and energy on preparing for my sister’s wedding, which happened November 9th in Ontario. There was a lovely ceremony, a great party, a fabulous dress, a delicious cake, and lots of happy people. Like something out of a Nora Ephron movie. So of course in honour of my sis and her now husband I thought a Popcorn Dinner list of top 10 movie wedding moments was definitely in order. Not being a wedding enthusiast or a dressy-up girl in my normal life I was just happy that I didn’t trip and do an undignified bridesmaid face plant.

So after lengthy, deliberate consideration and deriving a complex algorithm accounting for a scene’s watchability, memorability, and cultural impact, I rejected all of those things and came up with these randomly selected favs… Pretty sure they need no further explanation.

Best Engagement Announcement: Father of the Bride (1991)

Most Intense Bridal Shower: Bridesmaids (2011)

Best Wedding Prep: Steel Magnolias (1989)

Best “Meeting the Family” Party: My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

Most Awkward Walk Down the Aisle: Muriel’s Wedding (1994)

Best Officiant: The Princess Bride (1987)

Most Dramatic Ceremony Interruptus: The Graduate (1967)

*Spoiler alert. Although if you haven’t seen The Graduate, it’s unlikely you’d be reading this blog*

Most Romantic Recessional: Love Actually (2003)

Best Angry Wedding Anthem: The Wedding Singer

Best Inappropriate Toast: Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)

    Thanks for the shout out!

  3. Absolutely brilliant, so many of my favourite moments are in there too. Especially Father of Bride, love that film.

    • Thanks for the feedback, Caz. I’m also a fan of Father of the Bride – Steve Martin is terrific. One of these days I really should get around to seeing the Spencer Tracey original, though. Thanks for reading!
