The Top 10 of Wedding Movies
Here is our list of our Top 10 Wedding Movies:
1.-Four Wedding and a Funeral
Romantic comedy about Charles, a noncommittal Englishman who meets Carrie–the American girl of his dreams–at a mutual friend’s wedding and proceeds to awkwardly woo her through one funeral and three more weddings–one of which happens to be her own. Finally Charles discovers himself standing at the altar on his own wedding day, betrothed to a woman he has no desire to spend the rest of his life with.
The story may seem simple, but the film is elevated by screenwriter Richard Curtis’ ear for witty dialogue and a colorful supporting cast. Director Mike Newell’s sympathetic attention to character keeps the proceedings believable, and prevents the film’s more serious moments from seeming mawkish. These elements, along with Grant’s star-making performance as Charles, helped the film achieve unexpected international success, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.
2.-My Big Fat Greek Wedding
A perfect comedy of all the times. This is an independent film written by and starring Nia Vardalos and directed by Joel Zwick.

When she falls in love with Ian, a WASPy non-Greek, Toula struggles to get her family to accept her eager fiance while she herself comes to terms with her heritage, her cultural identity, and their meddlesome ways

6.-The Wedding Singer
A man with a miserable love life travels from wedding to wedding singing romantic songs to happy newlyweds while dreaming of hitting it big as a rock star. The setting of the 1980′s makes it a wonderful time period for cliches and inside jokes for those of us who grew up in the decade. The soundtrack is great too, capped off with a song that will make the heart of any woman melt.

Liv, a successful lawyer who is used to getting what she wants, including the perfect job and the perfect man, won’t settle for anything less than the perfect wedding she has dreamed of for years.
