Top 10 Wedding Movies
In honor of the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton, I'm getting all weepy eyed and reminiscent. I always love watching and/or participating in a great reception and luckily, had my own fairytale wedding many years ago. In fact, we'll be celebrating our 15th anniversary this August. I will never forget the moment I walked down the aisle to the theme from "Phantom of the Opera." I kept telling everyone that the synagogue we were married in made me feel like Maria from the "Sound of Music" but I didn't think that "How do You Solve a Problem Like Maria" would have gone over well with our guests so instead, I opted for the traditional Barbra Streisand rendition from "Phantom."
Ever since I was a young girl, I have loved everything about weddings. What I love most are movies that capture the spirit of marriage in all its glory (and anguish too). So I've decided to compile a top 10 list of my favorite wedding movies of all time. Give these a try if you have a few hours to kill (or have time to give yourself a "time out"). They'll make you feel all warm and cozy inside and might even compel you to watch your own wedding video...problem on my end is I no longer own a VCR, so the memories of my wedding will for the time being remain in my wedding album, my bedroom (where tons of photos from our special day adorn our walls and dresser) and of course in my mind!
Top 10 Wedding Movies of All Time
"Steel Magnolias" - Call me a sap, but I can never get enough of the opening scene from one of my favorite films of all time when Tom Skerritt is trying to chase away geese by shooting them and Weezer (played by Shirley Maclaine) is on the verge of going postal because he's driving her dog insane. Plus, the pink theme completely hit home with me (pink flowers, dresses, a pink armadillo cake, you get the drift). And don't even get me started when things go south for Shelby or Sally Field's incredible meltdown in the cemetary - I want to start crying just thinking about it. Make sure you have a box full of tissues for this five hanky classic.
