Greatest Wedding Movie Moments of All TimeFrom the "Father of the Bride" to "Wedding Crashers", we've rounded up the most memorable movie weddings of all time.
1. "Father of the Bride"
The Scene: George fights with Franck to get the cheaper chicken: "Tell Hanck it's not okay. If I have to move out all the furniture and add amps and repaint the walls and get a new tux and pay for swans, then I'd like the 'chipper' chicken." He then proceeds to the grocery store where he rebelliously rips open a bag of hot dog buns because he only wants to buy eight (not 12).
2. "Sixteen Candles"
The Scene: Sam's older sister walks down the aisle under the influence of heavy painkillers while her dad tries his best to keep her upright.
3. "Rachel Getting Married"
The Scene: This isn't your typical wedding and that's the point. The dance party reception wins as the invite we wish we'd received.
4. "My Best Friend's Wedding"
The Scene: Remember the scene at the restaurant when the entire table breaks it down to "I Say a Little Prayer"? Yeah, that's the one.
5. "Love Actually"
The Scene:The very beginning of the movie at the ceremony where the choir and guests stand up and perform a surprise serenade of "All You Need Is Love."
6. "Four Weddings and a Funeral"
The Scene: Hugh Grant's best man speech when he admits he's afraid of commitment.
7. "Wedding Crashers"
The Scene: The montage to "Shout" at the beginning of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson ripping it up on the dance floor at a gazillion weddings.
8. "The Muppets Take Manhattan"
The Scene: The end to "Somebody's Getting Married!"
