10 Must-See Films For Brides

If you need some inspiration and relaxation in the lead up to your big day, snuggle up with your groom or take your bridesmaids and watch one of these exciting movies about weddings!

Runaway Bride
Paramount Pictures

Runaway Bride is an exciting wedding movie with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere who also feature in a cult film Pretty Woman. It is jam packed with gorgeous wedding dresses including the one designed by Amsale Aberra which comes with the off-the-shoulder silhouette, satin draping and delicate beading.

Bride Wars
20th Century Fox

Brides-to-be can find more wedding dress inspiration in Bride Wars since Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are wearing most impressive ivory gowns by Vera Wang in the wedding scene. We also think floral arrangements and other reception decorations from this movie are wonderfully inspirational, and the plot with rivalry between the two brides having their wedding on the same day is definitely exciting.

27 Dresses
20th Century Fox

27 Dresses is a fun movie to watch with your bridesmaids! It features 27 craziest bridesmaid gowns you have ever seen and the story about a girl who has finally married her prince charming after being a bridesmaid 27 times. It will make you laugh and your heart melt.

Universal Pictures

You can also watch Bridesmaids with your bridesmaids because this romantic comedy is a lot of fun and definitely our pick!

Mumma Mia The Movie
Universal Pictures

Musical Mamma Mia is a film which will inspire you to organise a fabulous destination wedding. It is set in the magnificent Greek Islands where combination of blue seas and skies with white houses create the idyllic setting for a summer celebration.

For Weddings and a Funeral
Focus Features

If you want to see some of the best churches and ceremony venues in London, but also hear the funniest wedding speeches, we recommend that you watch Four Weddings and a Funeral. This romantic movie with Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell is very funny, and even your groom may enjoy it!

Father of the Bride

If you want to be inspired by the 1950’s wedding gown worn by the beautiful Elizabeth Taylor, watch the original version of Father of the Bride and skip the remake. The stunning dress was created by Helen Rose and later replicated by Alfred Angelo.

High Society

High Society is another fabulous wedding movie from the 1950’s you shouldn’t miss! Stars featuring in the film include Grace Kelly before she wed Prince Rainier of Monaco, Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.

Muriel's Wedding

But if you need a bit of eighties-style inspiration for your big day, now is the perfect opportunity to watch Muriel’s Wedding. This cult Australian film directed by P. J. Hogan and released in 1994 features Toni Collette, Rachel Griffiths, Jeanie Drynan, Sophie Lee, and Bill Hunter.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding
IFC Films

The clash of cultures between a young Greek woman who falls in love with a non-Greek is the storyline for our last movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding. She struggles to get her family to accept him while she comes to terms with her heritage and cultural identity.
