If you’re feeling pretty burned out from all the wedding planning and decision-making, treat yourself to a night of “Netflix and Chill” with your bridal posse or your groom-to-be. You won’t even have to stress about selecting which film to watch because we’ve devised the ultimate list of chick flicks you’ll be sure to laugh at, cry about and even be jealous of!
(Don’t worry if your reality is nowhere near to these movies, let us remind you that it’s Hollywood.)
27 Dresses (2008)
“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.”
No words have rang so true when it comes to Katherine Heigl’s character who, in the film, has been a bridesmaid 27 times. Her character is also a wedding planner, so this 2008 rom-com can surely provide some inspiration for your own nuptials!
Bride Wars (2009)
“Your wedding will be huge, just like your a** at prom.”
A test of true friendship is brought to a whole new level when a clerical error schedules the weddings of two childhood best friends’ (played by Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson) on the same day. Game on!
“I’m ready to PAAAAAAAAARTY!”
Laugh till you gag with this oestrogen-filled laugh-out-loud green comedy fest starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Ellie Kemper and Wendi Mclendon-Covey. This Oscar-nominated comedy proves that girl power – despite each bridesmaid’s differences and opinions – can’t be shook.
Wedding Crashers (2005)
Two man-children, played by Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, pair up in this comedy as BFFs who crash weddings to meet single ladies. Although not quite the chick flick, this hilarious pre-wedding movie is great for you (and your fiancé, who could definitely join you and enjoy the film just as much) when you decide to shake your nerves off to “Shout” before your big day.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
“There are two kinds of people – Greeks, and everyone else who wish they was [sic] Greek.”
If you belong to a big family, chances are they can be a tad bit (or more) challenging to deal with – especially when it comes to weddings! As cultures clash, this heartwarming comedy teaches you to stand firmly for what (or who) you want, no matter where they’re from, or their (your) size.
Monsoon Wedding (2001)
“The Peacocks are not dancing, it will not rain.”
Although not technically Hollywood, this Bollywood hit won the prestigious Gold Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival when it was first released in 2001. Depicting the events leading up to and during a visually stunning and traditional Punjabi Hindu Wedding, Monsoon Wedding, despite its literal translated title giving away some of the movie’s plot, brings together two families as they celebrate the union of Lalit and Pimmi, two youngsters in love who remind us that love perseveres over any weather, on any day.
The Wedding Singer (1998)
“Not porno tongue. Church tongue.”
While liquid courage is one thing, too much before your speech can make your audience really uncomfortable in their seats. This 80s inspired rom-com featuring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore touches on being left at the altar, falling in love, and hilarious, cringe-worthy wedding moments.
