Four Weddings & A Funeral, 1994 This Brit rom-com is a classic and Hugh Grant’s defining role. A generation fell in love with him then, and never stopped. You will laugh, a lot, and cry a little too.

My Best Friend’s Wedding, 1997 Julia Roberts is undoubtably the queen of the wedding movie scene and this is one of her best—this one is arguably one of the top wedding flicks of all time. The perfect mix of laughs and love.

Sixteen Candles, 1984 While not specifically a wedding movie, the plot of this one revolves around Andie (Molly Ringwald) dealing with her 16th birthday in the mess of her sister’s wedding weekend. Two words: Jake Ryan. Watch it!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding, 2002 A classic tale of a massive family wedding is full of all the characters and drama that may be all too familiar as you plan your own day. Nia Vardalos and John Corbett will totally charm you.

The Parent Trap, 1961 and 1998 This Disney film, which was remade in 1998 with Lindsay Lohan, pictured above, is a retro trip and tells the tale of two teenage twins who want to reunite their divorced parents. Watch the original, then the remake!

Notting Hill, 1999 Though not specifically a wedding flick, this Richard Curtis romantic comedy has one hell of a wedding scene which becomes a pivotal moment for the movie’s lead characters Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) and Will Thacker (Hugh Grant). Added bonus: it’s charmingly British from start to finish.

Bridesmaids, 2011 Consider putting this one on repeat if you haven’t already because the more you watch it the better it gets. Melissa McCarthy delivers the performance of a lifetime and there likely will never be an all-star lineup of women as funny as this in one film ever again.

The Wedding Singer, 1998 Singer Robbie (Adam Sandler) and waitress Julia (Drew Barrymore) are engaged… but to the wrong people. Fate intervenes, life takes a turn for the couple and it’s all set against one of the best movie soundtracks (heavily ‘80s inspired of course!) of all time.

The Best Man, 1999 Taye Diggs stars in this rom-com about what ensues when a newly published author reunites with friends from college for a wedding weekend... friends whom he wrote about in his book! Secrets come out, and drama unfolds, entangling all friends, including the newlyweds-to-be.

Runaway Bride, 1999 The re-teaming of Pretty Woman co-stars Julia Robert and Richard Gere made this one an instant classic, with Roberts portraying a nervous bride who has left more than one fiancé at the altar.

Father Of The Bride, 1950 and 1991 The original film stars Spencer Tracy in the titular role and Elizabeth Taylor as the bride. It follows the ups and downs of wedding planning and parent’s involvement in it. The 1991 remake, pictured above, starring Steven Martin has also become a wedding-watch classic.

The Wedding Planner, 2001 Another favourite that topped our crowd-source list of must-sees! Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey make this fluffy watch a thoroughly entertaining one.

Wedding Crashers, 2005 Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are the crashers and play two guys we ALL know. There are some classic lines and moments in this one that, a film that still resonates 15 years after hitting theatres.

Muriel’s Wedding, 1994 This film marked Toni Colette’s breakout role and is perfect if you love a black comedy. Muriel is a flawed hero who you may have difficulty loving, but her story is interesting and her obsession with ABBA makes for an amazing soundtrack.

Mamma Mia, 2008 Speaking of ABBA, this literally is the movie the band made via their hit song of the same name from 1975. The feel-good story, the music, the breathtaking scenery of Skopelos Greece… all reasons to keep watch this one on repeat for the next few weeks.
