What better way to bond with your bridesmaids than over a bowl of popcorn (and wine) while watching a movie? Get your onesies out as we are about to list the top 10 wedding movies that you should watch with your bridesmaids before your wedding day!    


27 dresses
Imagine being a bridesmaid 27 times? Well that is the case for Katherine Heigl s character Jane, in this hilariously girly rom-com where she ends up planning her younger sister s wedding. It just so happens that her sister, Tess, is marrying Jane s prince charming!  




Bride Wars
Childhood best friends (played by Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson) have been planning their weddings since they were young, but what happens when they both choose the same venue and accidentally, the same date? WAR! Guaranteed to give you a six pack from laughing!  


Bridesmaids
Dubbed as the female version of the hangover, it is a movie that will have tears streaming down your face from laughing! Annie (Kristen Wiig), is going through a tough time in her life when she finds out her lifelong BFF Lillian (Maya Rudolph) is getting married. Although she is the maid of honour, she is constantly competing with, and comparing herself to perfect Helen (Rose Byrne), one of the bridesmaids and Lillian s new best friend. Need I mention that the hilarious Melissa McCarthy is also a bridesmaid? A brilliant movie, perfect for a girly night in.   




The Wedding Planner
An ambitious and hard-working wedding planner Mary, played by the stunning Jennifer Lopez, finds herself in a bit of a predicament when she falls in love with one of her client s husband s! (eye candy, Matthew McConaughey) Will Mary be able to keep her feelings to herself or will she finally get to be the bride?   




The Proposal
Margaret Tate, played by Sandra Bullock, is an executive editor in chief of a book publishing company. After violating terms of her work visa, she faces being deported to her native Canada. She blackmails her assistant, Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds) into acting as her fiance to keep her from being deported. Initially planning on resuming to their lives after Tate s visa issues are resolved, their relationship blossoms and not all goes according to plan. With plenty of unexpected twists, this movie is a must see!  




Mamma Mia
If you are planning a destination wedding, you will get plenty of inspiration from this movie! Set in the picturesque Greek island of Kalokairi, Meryl Streep heads the cast, playing the role of single mother Donna Sheridan. Bride-to-be Sophie Sheridan secretly invites three men from her mother s past in hope of meeting her real father and having him escort her down the aisle on her big day. A musical romantic comedy film adapted from the 1999 West End musical of the same name, based on the songs of successful pop group ABBA. A personal favourite with an unexpected ending. This movie will have you all singing and dancing for the rest of the night.   




Father of the bride
A heart-warming family comedy starring Steve Martin who plays the overprotective father George Banks. He struggles to come to terms with the fact that his daughter is getting married and finds himself in the midst of wedding planning. A classic film with some laugh-out-loud moments.   




Wedding Crashers
Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) and John (Owen Wilson) are divorce mediators who spend their free time crashing wedding receptions. The hilarious duo manage to charm vulnerable women and crash numerous weddings until they find themselves in a bit of trouble! This movie had me in tears and it has plenty of unexpected twists. An original storyline and a must-see!   

My Best Friend s wedding Starring Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, it is the perfect girly rom-com. Childhood friends Julianne and Michael made a promise to marry each other if they were both still single at aged 28, but four days before Julianne s (Julia Roberts) 28th birthday, Michael (Dermot Mulroney) announces his engagement. Realising she is in love with him, she plans to stop the wedding at all costs, but being maid of honour might make this plan a lot more difficult than she originally thought! An entertaining movie that will have you in stitches.   




What happens in Vegas
Last, but certainly not least, a comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher. Two strangers find themselves accidentally getting hitched in Las Vegas! Their personalities clash completely but an unexpected issue forces them to stay together. An entertaining and funny movie from beginning to end.
