We all have always had a nostalgic soft spot for wedding movies. What’s a better excuse to indulge in that guilty pleasure than watching all of them during your own wedding planning process? We promise it will spark a sense of inspiration for your wedding. From absolute do’s and absolute don’ts (ahem “The Wedding Planner”), here are some excellent wedding movies to start on your binging session.
The Wedding Planner
Personally, this is the movie that started all the obsession with wedding movies. Jennifer Lopez plays a Type A wedding planner named Mary Fiore. Forget the plot line of Mary falling for a groom, but the weddings that took place in the movie were really what was memorable. It’s an easy-to-love movie. Bonus, you get to see a younger Mathew McConaughey in one of his breakout roles! Stream the movie on Netflix or Hulu.
The Opening Scene
Crazy Rich Asians
Whenever you ask anyone about their favorite wedding in a movie, Crazy Rich Asians easily takes first place. The wedding scene is *breathtaking*. See for yourself below. Besides the wedding, the movie itself is phenomenal. A woman played by Constance Wu falls in love with a picture-perfect guy. Little does she know he is royalty across the pond. Figuring this out comes with its extravagant twists and turns! Stream it on Netflix or HBO Max.
The Wedding Scene
Mamma Mia. Truly a classic movie. If you haven’t seen it, you definitely need to take some time for it. Throughout the movie, you get to live vicariously through the characters throwing a wedding on an island in Greece. You’ll also get to jam along to some Abba music throughout the movie filled with a star-studded cast. The cast includes Amanda Seyfried and Meryl Streep! Stream it on Peacock.
This movie really follows the saying “always a bridesmaid, never a bride”. It wouldn’t be a good movie if it didn’t give a little hope to that idea. Find out how they get to that point in this classic tale of 27 Dresses! Stream it on Disney Plus.
This is just the start of your wedding planning movie binge-watching journey. There are so many more wedding movies to get you excited and inspired for your journey down the aisle. Once you start watching them, it’s only a matter of time before Netflix starts recommending even more of the best wedding movies. Have fun and let the binging begin!
