by Amy Mackelden ~ Wedding planning can be super stressful. Hopefully you've got a strong squad by your side. Here are just a few films you should put on while you’re writing your invitations or building your table plan. Read the full story here:
  1. The Wedding Planner
    This one should be obvious. Jennifer Lopez plays the infamous wedding planner, able to construct the most perfect day, but unable to hold down a relationship herself. While planning Matthew McConaughey’s big day, sparks fly. Lopez is at her absolute sweetest, and it’ll remind you that love is real and can strike anywhere.
  2. Made Of Honor
    Oh, McDreamy, how are you always so dreamy? This underrated rom-com stars Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan, best friends who spend every Sunday together. Dempsey has a rule: never to see the same girl two nights in a row. Monaghan is the exception to this rule, as his bestie and confidante. But when she goes off to Scotland for several months, she gets engaged to Kevin McKidd (Owen Hunt from Grey’s Anatomy!), and asks McDreamy to be her Maid of Honor.
  3. 27 Dresses
    A total Katherine Heigl classic, this rom-com is a staple for anyone picking out bridesmaids dresses. Not only does Heigl’s character have an impressive collection of outfits you can steal ideas from (or not!), she’s torn between two hotties, James Marsden and Edward Burns. Lucky her!
  4. My Big Fat Greek Wedding
    With a sequel right around the corner, now is the time to revisit where the story all began, when beautiful John Corbett (Aidan from Sex and the City) swept Nia Vardalos off her feet. It’ll remind you of all the reasons having your family involved in your big day is essential, stressful, and ultimately perfect.
  5. Bride Wars
    Considered an actual classic in my house, before Bridesmaids made it mainstream to battle it out with your besties over wedding plans, Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson went to war as lifelong BFFs having their weddings on the same day. Some epic takedowns occur, as does a surprisingly deep exploration of what marriage means.
  6. The Vow
    With a perfect cast – Channing Tatum AND Rachel McAdams – The Vow is not just about the wedding, but the marriage. McAdams wears the most perfect short pink wedding dress in the movie, complete with veil. Total #WeddingDressGoals.
  7. The Wedding Ringer
    A cute movie starring Kelly Cuoco as the bride. Husband-to-be Josh Gad realises that he has no male friends to invite to the wedding. He enlists the help of Kevin Hart, professional best man, to do the honors. A comedy that highlights the difficulties the groom faces when wedding planning, and it’s great to get this alternative viewpoint.
  8. Monster-in-Law
    Another Jennifer Lopez classic to end the list. After meeting the man of her dreams (Michael Vartan—HELLO!), Lopez then has to contend with his mother. Wedding planning gets a little challenging, but it’ll remind you how to keep your sense of humor when things get a little rough.
