Nothing like a movie to get you in the mood. Emotionally stirring films that will have you madly inlove with the idea of weddings, marriage and love by the time you walk down the aisle. Not that you should need any prodding in the right direction, but these are fun to watch. Go on. There won’t be another time in your life when weddings will have quite the appeal that they do now.

Four Weddings and a Funeral – even if you’ve watched this at least twice already, you can quite safely do a re-run. The 1994 British comedy stars Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas and Simon Callow is a hoot a minute.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding – another ‘must watch’ movie, if you haven’t already seen it a million times, is this 2002 Canadian / American comedy starring Nia Vardalos and directed by Joel Zwick. It’s a real feel-good, lively movie about the pressures of family and what it is to grow up as a woman in a traditionally Greek home.

The Birdcage – this is a classic that deserves more than one viewing. Directed by Mike Nichols and based on La Cage aux Folies, an engaged couple’s diversely different families (with the odd orchestrated change) meet, and things go awry. Robin Williams, Gene Hackman, Dianne Wiest and Calista Flockhart all contribute to the hillarity.

Betsy’s Wedding – a typical Brat Pack film from the early 1990s starring Molly Ringwald (remember her?) directed and starring Alan Alda. The movie’s plot is neither here nor there, but it’s fun if you’re even vaguely nostalgic about the late 80s / early 90s.

Monsoon Wedding – a movie that isn’t a comedy. In fact, this 2001 film, directed by Mira Nair, is incredibly beautiful – the scenery and costumes, as well as the actors, particularly. The whole movie is shot in New Delhi and is about the romantic entanglements during a traditional Punjabi wedding – gorgeous.

My Best Friend’s Wedding – a wedding would not be a wedding without seeing this 1997 success starring Julia Roberts as Julianne, who falls in love with her best friend as soon as he lets her know that he’s about to be married. The rest is her attempts to break the marriage.
