Wedding Movies to Binge Watch

Wedding planning can burn out even the most namaste brides-to-be. For the nights when you just want to put away the planners and "Netflix 'n chill," snuggle up with your fiancé and watch one of our favorite wedding movies. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll maybe even get some inspo.

Father of the Bride (1991)
Getting married isn't just a big deal for you and your spouse. It brings about big changes for each of your families, too. No movie better encapsulates the madcap nature of throwing a wedding and adjusting to a diminishing nest like Father of the Bride. Not only does Steve Martin's George get surprised by his daughter's engagement — he has to host the wedding at their home. Bonus: Father of the Bride (1950) — If you're a lover of classic movies, check out the Oscar-nominated original, starring Spencer Tracy as the father and Liz Taylor as his wife (Diane Keaton plays alongside Steve Martin in the 1991 remake).

Wedding Crashers (2005)
So maybe you don't want anyone strangers showing up to your wedding, guessing the readings during your ceremony (we all know it will be Corinthians) taking advantage of your cocktail hour and open bar. But you'll want to have the same amount of fun that manchildren John (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) do in Wedding Crashers. Aside from the laughs and gasps, Wedding Crashers has a sweet, romantic undercurrent, making it a great pre-wedding movie for you and your fiancé to take in before you dance to "Shout" at your own rockin' party.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
Anyone with a big family knows how, well, challenging they can often be. Sometimes, living up to one's family's expectations can be rough, not to mention what it's like being the in-law or "outsider". My Big Fat Greek Wedding is the ultimate romantic comedy about big families and even bigger emotions.

Bridesmaids (2011)
Weddings are great because they bring together people from all aspects of your life. Childhood friends and your college crew, your work friends and family all come together to celebrate you. Everyone puts aside their differences and opinions to do what's best for the bride, right? Not so fast. In Bridesmaids, Annie (Kristin Wiig) has some feelings about Helen (Rose Byrne), the new best friend to her childhood best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph). That's putting it lightly. Bridesmaids, truly one of the top comedies of the last decade, will change your outlook on friendship, Brazilian food, and Wilson Phillips.

The Five-Year Engagement (2012)
When it comes to wedding planning, everybody moves at their own pace. Some couples get hitched right away, while others take time to save some money and wait for the perfect time. Tom (Jason Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt) take the latter to the extreme. After getting engaged, things keep getting in the way — family, careers, studying — truly testing their commitment to each other. With fun supporting roles from Alison Brie and Chris Pratt, The Five-Year Engagement shows us that it's worth waiting if you're with the right person.

Bride Wars (2009)
Sometimes you go through your engagement and wedding planning at the same time as your best friends. It can be a blast, but make sure you can actually go to each other's weddings! In Bride Wars, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway star as childhood best friends who always wanted their weddings to be just about the same, with each other as their maids of honor. One problem: a clerical error has resulted in their weddings being booked for the same day, at the same place — resulting in the ultimate test of friendship.

27 Dresses (2008)
"Always a bridesmaid, never the bride." 27 Dresses' main character Jane, played by Katherine Heigl, is the extreme case of this, having been a bridesmaid for, you guessed it, 27 brides, but remains single herself. Jane gets involved with a writer (James Marsden) who is covering Jane's sister's upcoming wedding, but the writer takes an interest in Jane in more ways than one.

Admit it, you loved Beverly Hills 90210. We understand, our formative years were filled with Brenda, Brandon, Dylan, Kelly, Steve, Donna, David and Andrea. Some of our first wedding memories were even straight from our favorite West Beverly High drama. Remember when Jackie and Mel had to get married at the Walsh house? What about Dylan's unforgettable cliffside ceremony with Toni? And we can't forget that time Kelly and Brandon almost became Mr. and Mrs. Walsh. We're looking back at our favorite TV wedding moments from Beverly Hills 90210.

Jackie and Mel
The gang took a break from hanging out at the Beverly Hills Beach Club to stir up some serious drama at Jackie and Mel's wedding at Casa Walsh — the first "I dos" to take place in the series. Kelly, Brenda, and Donna were a vision in bubble gum pink halter bridesmaid dresses, and we even got a Brenda and Dylan wedding fantasy that fueled our teenage wedding dreams (above)! Oh yeah, Kelly and David officially became brother and sister.

Andrea and Jesse
Sure, Andrea and Jessie were a snooze fest of a couple, but there was something sweet about their shotgun courthouse ceremony. Brandon Walsh gave away the bride.

Dylan and Toni
Spoiler alert: This is the saddest episode of Beverly Hills 90210! Dylan finally escapes the Brenda and Kelly love triangle to find true love with Noxzema Girl extraiordinaire Toni Marchette. She's perfect in a sleek halter gown, with her naturally curly hair beautifully accessorized by a statement veil. Sadly the brides is gunned down by her own father when he mistakes her for Dylan. They didn't even get a honeymoon. Dylan McKay continued to brood until the end of time.

Brandon and Kelly
The wedding never happened, but you'd be hard pressed to find a more 90s bride than Jennie Garth's Kelly Taylor in a beatau-neck, cap-sleeved a-line wedding dress. Donna's curly tendrils adorned with floral pins was also pretty perfect. They didn't go through with the wedding, but still had the party for their guests We wouldn't have been able to say no to marrying Brandon Walsh, but that's just us.

David and Donna
It was a classic TV finale wedding for high school sweethearts David and Donna. Donna got the ultimate Peach Pit dream and had Nat walk her down the aisle. Admit it, you still cry at that end scene with the whole gang, including a returning Val and Andrea, dancing in slow motion to the greatest TV theme ever?

The best way to de-stress after dealing with the seemingly never-ending plans for your own wedding? Watching someone else's! After a long day of dealing with your future in-laws' always-expanding guest list, big day budget struggles, and nightmare wedding vendors, who doesn't love curling up on the couch for a good old Netflix binge of the wedding episodes of your fave series? They're the best part of the show, after all! Forget Game of Thrones — Monica and Chandler's tear-jerking vows and Blake Lively's gilded gold wedding dress in Gossip Girl deserved an Emmy! And as huge fans of on-screen weddings (you never would've guessed, right?), we've gathered up our favorite fictional "I dos" for our newest BRIDES video. Time to queue up the nostalgia.

No need to lose a weekend binge-watching because our collection of the greatest TV weddings of all time is sure to satisfy. Remember watching Uncle Jesse tie the knot with Becky on Full House? Or how about when Cory and Topanga finally made it official on Boy Meets World? Since then, your childhood idea of romance was sweet '90s serenades and first kisses against school hall lockers.

How about the on-screen weddings of more recent years? Tina Fey's Liz Lemon slayed the game when it comes to unique wedding hairstyles when she rocked Princess Leia buns on 30 Rock. And Gossip Girl proved to be flawless fodder for wedding dress inspiration during the on-screen "I dos" of Blair and Serena. Lily and Marshall's perfectly imperfect tiny ceremony in the park gave us major #CoupleGoals and we STILL tear up when Miranda finally says "I do" to Steve in a totally fitting brown velvet blazer. And don't even get us started on Jim and Pam's Niagara Falls ceremony or the waterworks may never stop.

TBT: The Grey’s Anatomy Weddings We Can’t Get Enough Of

Welcome back Grey's Anatomy! We're so excited for the return of fall TV, and that especially includes seeing our favorite doctors back in action at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. As always we can hopefully expect loads of romance from those love-starved docs, and hopefully that means adding more to our list of favorite TV weddings. There's been no shortage of couples to ship over the years on Grey's Anatomy, that's for sure! From OG love birds Meredith and Derek, to Izzie and Alex, Cristina and Owen, and Callie and Arizona, romance is always in the air, even through unspeakable tragedy. And for us that means weddings, weddings, weddings! In honor of the show's 13th season premiere we're looking back at our favorite Grey's Anatomy weddings.

Meredith and Derek
An over the top wedding was planned for Grey's Anatomy's resident love birds, but the duo gave their fancy wedding away to Alex and Izzie when Derek discovered Izzie had another tumor. It's technically not a legal wedding, but Dr. and Mrs. McDreamy's post-it vows were 100% marriage goals: "Love each other even when we hate each other. No running. Take care when old, senile, and smelly." And topped it off with a simple "This is forever." They did get their official city hall wedding later on, but this will forever be the moment MerDer made it "official."

Izzie and Alex
Izzie gets her fairy tale wedding when her condition becomes worse and Meredith and Derek handover the day she helped plan for them. Knowing Izzie was not long for this world was so heartbreaking, even if we got one of the sweetest wedding vows to grace TV courtesy of Alex: "Today I become a man, a husband. I become accountable to someone other than myself."

Callie and Arizona
After many ups and downs and family drama — what wedding doesn't have them? — Callie and Arizona got a gorgeous wedding filled with family (even if it was the family they made at Grey Sloan Memorial). Bailey ended up officiating the couple's super touching and traditional wedding ceremony, and Callie's dad eventually showed up to honor her with a father-daughter dance.

Cristina and Owen
Only Cristina could get away with wearing a red dress down the aisle! The famously non-conformist doc thought wearing white was "sexist and vaguely racist." A far cry from Cristina's first attempt at marital bliss: the wedding that never was with Burke.

Bailey and Ben
It was a wedding for the Seattle Grace Mercy West books for Miranda Bailey — Callie, Arizona and Meredith even served as bridesmaids. A wrench was thrown into the wedding plans when Bailey and the Chief were en route to the ceremony and got word that Adele's condition had worsened. Bailey immediately swapped her wedding dress for scrubs and jumped in to the O.R. to operate on the Chief's love. Five hours later, Bailey and Ben said their "I dos" and made it official by jumping the broom, and promising to love each other, 5 minutes at a time.

April and Jackson
How do they manage to keep the drama going on Grey's? With a runaway bride of course!
"I love you, April. I always have. I love everything about you. Even the things I don't like. I love you and I think you love me too," Jackson said. Viewers had to wait 10 weeks of hiatus to see that April eloped with her best friend Jackson. Now here's the important question: do we think perhaps Meredith as bridesmaid is bad wedding day juju? How many weddings have been called off with her at the bridesmaid helm?

Amelia and Owen
Season 12 of Grey's Anatomy closed with Derek's little sister Amelia and Owen tying the knot. Things get off to a rocky start (Runaway Bride Part 2?), but it's Meredith who manages to get her sister-in-law to come to her senses and stop seeking permission from other people to be happy. Maybe we shouldn't write Dr. Grey off as bridesmaid after all!

JoJo Fletcher Is Engaged! The Winner of The Bachelorette Finale 2016 Is…

JoJo Fletcher is engaged!

It seems like just yesterday we were sobbing tears of joy when JoJo went from Bachelor Ben Higgins' cast aside final rose runner-up to the all-star, fan fave Bachelorette. And guys, she did not disappoint. While there were some definite highs and lows this season, we're equal parts thrilled and saddened to see it come to a close. And in the battle of Jordan Rodgers and Robby Hayes, only one man can be victorious.

So if you have yet to press "play" on your DVRs and watch The Bachelorette finale 2016, you might want to stop reading — spoiler alerts!


Photo: Getty Images

Congratulations are in order for JoJo and Jordan! After the reality star said a tearful goodbye to Robby, JoJo was "so ready" to present her final rose to Jordan (who also happens to be Aaron Rodgers' brother). "I'm so unbelievably in love with you," Jordan, in a crisp blue suit, said to JoJo (who was wearing a GORG off-white dress), before getting down on one knee and presenting her with a solitaire, oval-cut Neil Lane diamond set on a pavé band. The pair proclaimed "I love you" over and over again, before JoJo gifted Jordan with her final rose and they embraced each other in the sunset.

Let's hope the Final Rose goes smoothly!

To be honest, rumors were swirling through the interwebs about JoJo and her final pick — The Bachelorette was spotted holding hands with Jordan in April (before this season even aired).

After a long, winding season of falling for a slew of attractive men (who kind of all looked the same...), JoJo has chosen her guy — despite being seemingly totally conflicted up until the very last moment.

In a sneak peek of Monday's Bachelorette finale, exclusively obtained by People, JoJo admitted that she'd fallen for both of her final two suitors.

"I love you," Robby tells her in the clip, followed by Jordan's own declaration to JoJo: "I'm in love with you."

"I'm in love with two people," JoJo told the camera before breaking down into tears. "I'm feeling so confused," she said. "I feel like I'm having a panic attack."

In another sneak peek of the episode, we saw Robby take a moment to ask JoJo's parents for their daughter's hand in marriage (!!), which brought her mom to tears, People reports.

"I have a really important question to ask JoJo's father," Hayes said before sitting down with The Bachelorette's mother and father. "I want to ask for his blessing in marrying her, but I included her mother."

Hayes then began his speech. "I'm here for Joelle, and I'm not going anywhere and she knows that," he said. "She means the world to me and I can sit here and honestly tell you both that she will be my number one priority in all of life and in everything I do."

Addressing JoJo's father, Hayes continued: "Dr. Fletcher, in asking for your blessing to marry Joelle today, I don't just want her hand in marriage," he said as her mother gets emotional. "I want all that is Joelle Hannah Fletcher, because you guys have raised such a special girl."

"If I'm fortunate enough to receive that blessing, I can promise you both to protect her, to care for her, to love her for my entire life and commitment is a lifetime thing," added Hayes. "It will be in that blessing and through that commitment that I would be honored to be part of your family."

If you ask us, Jordan and JoJo's chemistry couldn't be denied from the get -go. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Fewer things get us more excited than weddings, but the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival might just do it! The Netflix series's official date was just announced and we're counting the days until Thanksgiving 2016. And while we'll have to wait and see if the rumors of a Lorelei and Luke wedding are true, that doesn't stop us from looking back on some of our favorite wedding moments from the beloved series. From Sookie and Jackson to Richard and Emily, here are the cutest wedding moments from The Gilmore Girls.

Sookie and Jackson
Sookie and Jackson's long-awaited wedding is anything but drama free, for the Gilmores at least. Christopher-shippers everywhere got their heart broken when he announced he was having a baby with Sherry, and Jess fans got the Rory and Jess kiss they were dying to see. Obviously this is Sookie, so the food was perfect. Too bad Lorelei and Rory were two very sad bridesmaids.


Photo: Giphy

Liz and TJ
OMG, Lorelei and Luke FINALLY have their first date. Sure, it's at Luke's sister Liz's amazingly Renaissance-themed wedding (we won't talk about TJ's tights), but that at least gives Lorelei the opportunity to wear a really sweet flower crown.


Photo: Giphy

The Gilmores' Vow Renewal
Was there ever any doubt that Emily Gilmore could throw one heck of a wedding? The grand dame of event planning (all of those D.A.R. luncheons!) threw herself a gorgeously glam vow renewal with all the traditions — even a drunken bachelorette party, Stars Hollow style. As with any wedding, drama ensues — Rory and Logan, Luke and Christopher, oh my!


Photo: Giphy

Lane and Zack
We should really count Lane and Zack's walk down the aisle as two separate events. After a very traditional Korean ceremony, Lane gets the rock n' roll wedding she had always dreamed of — complete with a rocking mod mini and boots look courtesy of one Lorelei Gilmore. A Hemp Alien performance and a very drunk Lorelei later, Lane Kim gets her happily ever after.


Photo: Giphy

Lorelei and Chris
The Lorelei and Chris wedding was perhaps the biggest tease in Gilmore Girls history. After two engagements (we miss Mr. Medina too) Lorelei FINALLY had her bridal moment, and we were denied it! We totally felt Rory's pain when she was less than thrilled her parents decided to elope in Paris without including her — we waited a long time too, Rory.

5 Must-Watch Wedding Movie Toasts

 Planning Tips, TV & Movies, Wedding Planning  Comments Off on 5 Must-Watch Wedding Movie Toasts
Jul 132016
bridesmaids toast

Gearing up for an upcoming wedding where you have give a wedding toast? It may be good to do your homework and check out some of the legendary wedding speeches that people have laughed to, cried to, and even cringed at. Whether it's to learn what to do or what not to do, watching movie wedding speeches is a great way to pregame for your shinning moment. Here are the top five wedding movie toasts you just have to watch.

1. Bridesmaids
Who can forget the epically awkward engagement toast battle between Kristen Wiig and Rose Byrne's characters in this funny flick? It's clear both want to showcase how much the bride means to them and how amazing their friendship is with one another, but it quickly morphs into a competition between members of the bridal party — and the focus of the bride is lost. This is one of those speeches that teaches you what not to do, especially if you're giving a co-maid of honor speech.

2. Wedding Crashers
While the movie, in general, is an epic adventure of two guys who crash weddings to pick up chicks, the speech given by Rachel McAdams' character at her sister's wedding is actually quite moving and emotionally perfect (once she lays off the cheap jabs at the newlyweds' superficiality). Her toast includes an unforgettable quote — albeit stolen from Owen Wilson's character — that many have used in their wedding toasts since, "True love is the soul's recognizing of its counterpoint in another."

3. Four Weddings and a Funeral
One of the most endearing and beautiful lines from any movie wedding toast comes from this movie when Hugh Grant's character says, "I am as ever in bewildered awe of anyone who this kind of commitment that Angus and Laure have made today. I know I couldn't do it and I think it's wonderful they can."

4. The Five-Year Engagement
This movie can be relatable to those with — what else? — super long engagements and a wedding that feels like it's never actually going to happen. But the wedding toast in this movie uses a dose of humor that gets the audience laughing, a technique that all good wedding toasts should try to tackle.

Editors note: We couldn't find the toast anywhere online, so you'll just have to watch it the old fashioned way — by renting the DVD or streaming on Netflix.

5. The Hangover Part II
In The Hangover Part II, Alan (played by Zach Galifianakis) gives quite the awkward speech that both makes the audience cringe and seems like it doesn't have much of a focus or a point. It's a great example of what not to do in your groomsman toast... ever.

Beauty and the Beast Wedding Inspo Fit for Emma Watson, the Newest Disney Princess

 Celebrity, News, TV & Movies  Comments Off on Beauty and the Beast Wedding Inspo Fit for Emma Watson, the Newest Disney Princess
May 232016

The first trailer for the live-action retelling of Disney's Beauty and the Beast just dropped and it's got us humming the film's know-by-heart tunes all day. So we did what we do best: We planned a Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding, of course! Because we just can't wait until the movie's March 2017 premiere date (So. Far. Away.) to see Emma Watson fall in love and wed her prince-turned-beast, we threw together some ideas for a big day inspired by the iconic story. What are you waiting for? Come "Be Our Guest" at our Beauty and the Beast-inspired wedding!

Excitement has been swirling over this live-action remake ever since Emma Watson first tweeted out the news that she had been cast as Belle. And could you really see anyone other than the basically-already-a-princess Watson in the lead role? Finally we caught a glimpse of the actress in the tale as old as time Monday morning when the first teaser trailer for the film premiered on Good Morning America. But it's just not enough! So we dreamt up all the darling details of a Beauty and the Beast inspired big day, natch. If Emma Watson is ever heading down the aisle herself, we've totally got her covered...

First thing's first, what's Belle's dream wedding venue? A library, of course! The brunette bookworm would without a doubt tie the knot amongst floor-to-ceiling shelves full of her beloved books, so a similar "I do" locale is a no brainer for a Disney themed wedding. The New York Public Library and the Boston Public Library are two favorite iconic venues amongst bibliophile brides. Dainty place settings featuring (hopefully spellbound) tea sets are another subtle nod to the film. And reference the magnificent rose Watson marvels at in the new trailer with a romantic red rose bouquet and centerpieces featuring the enchanting bloom. As for the reception noms, we're picturing a luxe, tiered wedding cake and of course you can't forget the grey stuff — it's delicious!

5 Things We Loved About the Jane the Virgin Wedding

 Celebrity, Celebrity Weddings, News, TV & Movies  Comments Off on 5 Things We Loved About the Jane the Virgin Wedding
May 172016

Photo: Getty Images

SPOILER ALERT! Did you miss the big Jane the Virgin season finale? Don't got a step further! As our narrator would say: "OMG! Jane Villanueva is married!" Jane the Virgin finally got her man last night (well sort of), and said her "I dos" to Michael in a perfectly sweet, perfectly hilarious, perfectly telenovela style wedding ceremony. Whether you're #TeamMichael or #TeamRafael, you can't deny the wedding Jane's dad Rogelio organized for his daughter, was pretty much perfect — well, minus the bride and her father running late and arriving there by bus, hey, hijinks always ensue in telenovelas right? Jane's happy ending is still up in the air (is Michael alive? Will she be a virgin forever?), but we couldn't help but find happiness all over this adorable episode.

Here, we're rounding up our top 5 favorite moments from the Jane the Virgin wedding.

1. The Dress
OMG the dress! It's been kept under wraps ever since Jane visited a bridal salon with Xiomara. With some sweet lace (sweet yet sexy with a little bit of skin peaking through), and off-the-shoulder neckline, quarter length sleeves and a full flowing skirt, it perfectly embodies all the different sides of our Jane. Jane topped off the dress in sweet, nostalgic style, paying homage to her abuela (and the women in her family who came before her) by wearing the veil that has been passed down through generations.


Photo: Giphy

2. The Vows
After Jane says her traditional vows, Michael gives her grandmother Alba a knowing nod and proceeds to deliver his vows, 100% in Spanish. We're not crying, you're crying.

3. The Father-Daughter Dance
As if we could love Rogelio more (#RogelioMyBrogelio!). Jane and Rogelio's father-daughter dance starts off just like everyone else's, sweet and endearing. Jane thanks her father for throwing the wedding she's always dreamt of, except that she never dreamt she would be dancing with her father at her wedding (again, you're the one who is crying). And then, in true Rogelio fashion, the pair breaks out in to a spectacularly choreographed dance that only shows us how adorably similar Jane and Ro are. #RogelioForever.

4. Bruno Mars
Again we say, Rogelio is the best. He arranges for Bruno Mars to make a surprise appearance to sing Jane and Michael into their first dance as husband and wife. Mars serenades the newlyweds with his song "Rest of My Life," and just like that you found your first dance song — even if your dad is not a telenovela superstar who's third best friend is Bruno Mars.

5. The Walk Down the Aisle
It's no secret that the most important people in Jane's world are her mother and abuela. Jane makes her way down the aisle to marry Michael with both women by her side, and even makes room for her new-found dad Rogelio when he gets to take her hand and be the one to deliver her to Michael (not without a bro hug, of course).

Will Jane get her happy ending? Are you #TeamMichael or #TeamRafael? To be continued...

Admit it, you still watch Sex and the City reruns while wedding planning, right? We're all guilty of sitting around with our girlfriends having the quintessential debate: "Am I a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, or a Charlotte?" And, over here at BRIDES we are definitely guilty of knowing all of the Sex and the City weddings by heart!

Photo: Giphy

Sex and the City, the Movie: Carrie and Big
Boy meets girl, boy and girl break up a million times, boy steals girl away from Russian, boy leaves girl at the altar? Oops, Mr. Big freaks out en route to the wedding of the year (200 people! a Vivienne Westwood dress!), and by the time he comes to his sense it's too late.
