Wedding season has officially begun (it started with the mother of all weddings two weeks ago). To celebrate these joyous (or, for some, not so joyous) events, check out the best wedding movies hitting theatres in 2011.
FOR THE SINGLE LADIES
Based on the best-selling novel by Emily Giffin, this romantic-comedy about best friends Rachel and Darcy (played by Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson respectively) shows that sometimes love can get in the way of friendship. After Rachel sleeps with Darcy’s fiancée Dex (played by super-hunk Colin Egglesfield) right before the wedding, Rachel realizes she has to decide between being a good friend and going after what she really wants. Plus, the always adorable John Krasinski co-stars.
FOR THE ON-EDGE BRIDAL PARTY
SNL hotshot Kristen Wiig writes and stars in what is being talked about as the first ever “female buddy comedy.” Wiig plays Annie who has been tapped as her best friend’s maid of honour and now has to go along with all of the crazy duties (and bridesmaids) that come with it. With a cast of extremely funny women including SNL alum Maya Rudolph and The Office‘s Ellie Kemper this film will have enough laughs to calm your bridal party nerves.
FOR THE PARTY ANIMALS
The Hangover Part II
Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms reprise their roles as buddies trying to celebrate their friend’s upcoming nuptials, this time for Helms’ character Stu. Thailand ups the ante from Vegas when what is supposed to be a quiet pre-wedding brunch goes south.
Opens May 26
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY SAID THEIR VOWS
Love, Wedding, Marriage
Mandy Moore and Twilight hottie Kellan Lutz star in this comedy about starting their life as newlyweds. Moore plays Eva, a marriage counsellor wed to Charlie (Lutz) whose thoughts on marriage get thrown for a loop when she finds out her parents are filing for divorce. Opens June 3
FOR THE HOPELESS ROMANTICS (PLUS VAMPIRE AND WEREWOLF LOVERS) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part One
It’s finally time for Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) to marry her one true love (and vampire) Edward Cullen (played by dreamy Robert Pattinson). Throw in a vampire baby, evil bloodsuckers and a whole lot of werewolves and you’ve got one wedding movie that is not like the rest. Opens November 18
