The best wedding comedies

A wedding is always stressful for newlyweds. Preparation, annoying relatives, a list of important things to do and the choice of outfits – it is difficult to maintain inner balance during a period of crazy fuss.

The best foreign comedies about the wedding will help you look at the solemn event from a different angle and laugh heartily at the incidental moments.

What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?

Father of the Bride (1991)

What could be more joyful than the upcoming marriage of your own daughter? Close relatives and friends heartily congratulate Annie Banks, on whose ring finger an engagement ring sparkles – and only her father does not share the mass euphoria. George can not come to terms with the idea that his baby will leave home any day.

Preparations for the celebration turn into a real nightmare, because the father of the bride will have to take on half of the financial obligations. A hated future son-in-law, a “foreign” wedding planner speaking in an incomprehensible dialect, a daily growing list of purchases and expenses – George is only a step away from an emotional explosion. However, all problems will be on the shoulder if the happiness of a beloved, albeit matured, child is at stake.

Bridegroom for rent (2005)

In foreign comedies about a wedding, the main character is not always the bride, but the plot only benefits from this. And this film from the list is a prime example of that. Kat Ellis has a difficult trip to her hometown, where she once left a broken heart. The wound has almost healed, but at her sister’s wedding she will meet her former lover. To appear at the celebration in splendid isolation for Kat is akin to a complete failure, but here’s the bad luck: applicants for a serious relationship do not crowd at the door.

The only way out is to contact an escort company – such an ideal groom can wipe the nose of a traitor. Nick is gallant, polite, smart, educated and courteous, while “mad” about Katie. However, the planned revenge suddenly began to develop according to an unpredictable scenario.
