Our Favorite Wedding Movies

Runaway Bride: This film gets bonus points for being filmed in Berlin, Maryland, a small town on the Eastern Shore. New York newspaper columnist Ike Graham (Richard Gere) is desperate for a story when he hears about Maggie Carpenter (Roberts), a Maryland bride who has a persistent case of cold feet.

Great Line: Look, I guarantee there'll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you're the only one for me.

Wedding Crashers: This might be a “Bro-mantic” comedy, but weddings take center stage in this laughter-filled flick starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. Adhering to a secret set of  “wedding crashing rules” the pair crashes its way through many different types of weddings (and bridesmaids) every week. When they crash a wedding at The Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Maryland, things might begin to change for them. When visiting St. Michaels, if you look to the right while you're on Route 33, you'll catch a glimpse of the house they stayed at in the movie.

Great lines (because I couldn't choose husband and I quote this movie nonstop): 

John Beckwith: 20 bucks, First Corinthians. 
Jeremy Grey: Double or nothing, Colossians 3:12.

Flip: Yeah! Crabcakes and Football. That's what Maryland does! 

John Beckwith: I'd like to be pimps from Oakland or cowboys from Arizona but it's not Halloween. Grow up Peter Pan, Count Chocula

Father of the Bride: Steve Martin is having a little trouble with his 22-year-old daughter’s marriage in this 1992 classic. While he struggles to understand the over-the-top wedding planner (Martin Short), he also panics about how much this wedding is going to cost him.

Great line: 

George Banks: I used to think a wedding was a simple affair. Boy and girl meet, they fall in love, he buys a ring, she buys a dress, they say I do. I was wrong. That's getting married. A wedding is an entirely different proposition.

The Wedding Singer: Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star in this romantic comedy about a wedding singer who loves his job—until he gets left at the altar. Wedding waitress Julia (Barrymore), in a dismal engagement of her own, tries to cheer him up, but sparks begin to fly.

Great line: 

Father of the Bride: You are the worst wedding singer in the world, buddy! 
Robbie: Sir, one more outburst, I will strangle you with my microphone wire. You understand me. 

Other great wedding movies: The Wedding Planner; The Hangover (Kind of a wedding movie, right?); The Wedding Date; 27 Dresses; My Best Friend's Wedding; My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
