Our Wedding: Wedding Movie #1 “Bridesmaids”
You know how when it’s Christmas, you love to watch Christmas movies? Or when you’re pregnant and love to watch mommy movies? Well, we’re getting married in February and I love watching wedding movies! I thought a fun part of Wedding Wednesday would be to feature some of my favorite wedding movies or movies with famous wedding scenes.
Some of my favorite wedding movies include “27 Dresses,” “Father of the Bride,” “Bride Wars,” and “Bridesmaids.” It doesn’t matter how many times I watch “Bridesmaids,” I crack up laughing every time – especially the food poisoning/bathroom scene and the “party favors” scene.
Director Paul Feig and producer Judd Apatow team up again for this comedy that stars Kristen Wiig as Annie, a romantically unattached failed bakery owner who fears she’s losing her BFF, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), the best thing in her life, when Lillian announces she’s gotten engaged. Annie’s anxieties deepen as Lillian grows close to Helen (Rose Byrne), a wealthy and beautiful new friend who quickly assumes control of planning all the pre-wedding festivities. On top of the main storyline of a female friendship being torn apart, the movie adds a romantic storyline for Annie, who starts the film answering a booty call from the casually cruel yet undeniably handsome Ted (Jon Hamm), but develops a lovely flirtation with an Irish cop named Rhodes (Chris O’Dowd) after he pulls Annie over one night thinking she’s driving drunk. As the low-self-esteem Annie sabotages this new possibility for love, she also feels the most important friendship in her life slipping away. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi (Synopsis found at Fandango)

So what’s better than watching “Bridesmaids?” Having a Girl’s Night In and watching “Bridesmaids!” It was quite some time ago, but I thought it was fitting to share with my Wedding Wednesday posts.
