List RulesFilms about weddings or that feature nuptials as a main event

A list of the best wedding movies. These are films that feature engagements and getting married as a central theme. If you believe we've missed one, please feel free to add it to the list yourself. All genres have been included, although most fall into the category of comedy, with just a few dramas. Marriage and weddings have been a favorite theme of storytellers for not just centuries, but millennia. Often just the proposal itself makes for a great story. Sometimes these movies can also be categorized as a party film if they heavily involve the bridal shower or the bachelor party. Whether you're a bride or a groom, the wedding movies on this list are some of the best.
