TOP 5 CHOICES for Wedding Movies by the Fans

Nothing like a Happily Ever After Movie to lift your spirits. These movies are meant to be watched multiple times. Be INSPIRED, LAUGH, and most of all, BELIEVE in a POSITIVE destiny. As they say, ‘When Life Gives You Lemons, You Make Lemonade’ or make lemon cake or throw a Lemon Party!

1st PLACE(most voted by overwhelming lead!!!) – The Wedding Planner

Story Pitch for Wedding Planner: Mary Fiore is the wedding planner. She's ambitious, hard-working, extremely organized, and she knows exactly what to do and say to make any wedding a spectacular event. But when Mary falls (literally) for a the groom in the biggest wedding of her career! Will she help him walk down the aisle or will Mary finally get to be the bride herself? When it comes to love, you can never plan what's going to happen.

"The Wedding Planner" has everything you could ask from a romantic comedy. Predictability is always a factor, but come on! Do we really watch these types of movies expecting to be surprised at the ending? This film is quirky; all the actors and actresses don't miss a beat and they keep it real. No matter how many times I watch it, I still find something to laugh or smile at. - TylerDurden_FC from United States,

2nd PLACE (runner-up) – Father of the Bride & Bridesmaids

Story Pitch for Father of the Bride: George is a nervous father unready to face the fact that his little girl is now a woman. The preparations for the extravagant wedding provide hilarious comic moments.

The movie indeed benefits from Martin's portrayal of a worried father - not as scared by the fact that his daughter is getting married, as he is by the idea that he will undoubtedly lose her to another man. It's a turning point in both their lives, but it doubles for him. Not only has he essentially lost his daughter, but also he has also just been faced with the reality that he is old enough to nearly be a granddad. - MovieAddict2011 from UK,

Story Pitch for Bridesmaids: Though lovelorn and broke, Annie bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals of the matrimony ceremonies of her engaged best friend and a group of bridesmaid to make everything appear just perfect.

To start with, the film is hilarious, and I think the comedy far exceeds the standalone bits shown in the trailer. Scene after scene is filled with humorous and often sidesplitting moments, and they had the theater in an uproar during the screening. I can't say enough about Kristen Wiig. Prior to this, I've always liked her to some extent but never really loved her. I think she's good at what she does, but I wasn't sure her shtick could sustain an entire film. Would her passive aggressive wit get old? Is it the only note she can play? Can she handle anything more dramatic? Ultimately, she blew me away in this film. Not only is she consistently and uniquely funny, but her character is surprisingly well-developed, and Wiig brings the character to vibrant and dynamic life on-screen. - by AntoNEO (United States),

3rd PLACE (2nd runner-up) – Wedding Singer & Bride Wars & Star Wars

Story Pitch for Wedding Singer: Robbie Hart is singing the hits of the 1980s at weddings and Julia is a waitress at the events where Robbie performs. When both of them find someone to marry and prepare to be wed, it is clear that they've chosen wrong partners.

The Wedding Singer has a lot of heart. From the way that the characters interact with each other, particularly Sandler and Barrymore, it is obvious that they are in love. The movie also has some points to make on the subject of love; The Wedding Singer portrays that being in love is overall better than being a 'Fonz' type, womanising character. The message at the movie's centre is also a worthwhile one; the movie professes that it isn't important who you fall in love with; it doesn't matter whether or not he's merely a wedding singer, all that matters is the love between two people. - The_Void from Beverley Hills, England,

Story Pitch for Bride Wars: Lawyer Liv and the school teacher Emma have been best friends. However, due to a secretary's mistake, their weddings are scheduled for the same day and at the same place. Neither of them agrees to change the wedding date and they become sworn enemies who stop at nothing to sabotage the rival’s wedding party.

It might seem formulaic, but I found some of the twists and turns refreshing and unexpected. There are also some poignant (if not entirely deep) dramatic moments which lend strength to the characters and the storyline. Granted, I could see the aforementioned "love triangle" forming, but it wasn't a slap in the face. Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are, in my opinion, great in this film, and I also enjoyed seeing Steve Howey in something beyond "Reba," which I also enjoy. Steve's character was excellent and he portrayed him perfectly, with humor, sensitivity, and depth. Bryan Greenberg, as Kate Hudson's brother, was a delightful surprise. - coloradokid719,
