15 Great Wedding Movies

'Wedding Crashers' (2005)

These two best friends (Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn) enjoy a good wedding — and the women they meet there. They enjoy them so much, they become serial wedding crashers, bouncing from one to another. But the guys find themselves at odds when one of them falls for a bridesmaid.

With every wedding, there's the requisite bachelor party beforehand — and Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zach Galifinakis) plan a great one for their groom-to-be pal Doug (Justin Bartha) in Las Vegas. Except Phil, Stu and Alan wake up the next morning hung over, no memory of what happened — and no Doug.

Always the planner, never the bride. Jennifer Lopez plays an expert wedding coordinator who unexpectedly falls for the groom (Matthew McConaughey) of one of her clients.

Muriel (Toni Collette) decides to reinvent herself after years living in a nowhere Australia town — and is determined to have the wedding she's always dreamed of.
