10 Things I Learned From Wedding Movies

Movies are the best places to learn life lessons, right? Based on that assumption, I’ve collected ten must-read principles drawn from the multitude of wedding movies out there. What do you think? Is there any reality to any of this, or are they all just silly? Did I miss any? Find out after the jump.

10) If you fly first class, you might meet Billy Idol. The Wedding Singer (1998)

Grow old with me?

9) People who went to Brown make pacts to marry each other as a last resort. My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)

One crrrrazy night at Brown...

8) There is a conspiracy between hot dog makers and bun makers to force us to buy more than we need. Father of the Bride(1991)

Don't forget to fasten your condom. Seatbelt! I meant seatbelt!

7) If you elope with someone named “King Westley” and it’s not Cary Elwes, ditch him in favor of Clark Gable. It Happened One Night (1934)

Peter: Why didn't you take off *all* your clothes? You could have stopped forty cars. Ellie: Well, I'll remember that when we need forty cars.

6) If you’re a wedding planner by profession, the only way you’ll get hitched yourself is by stealing a groom from one of your clients. The Wedding Planner (2001)

Don't worry, I won't charge you.

5) A Grey’s Papaya Hot Dog flown in special from NYC and enjoyed while sitting on a cliff overlooking the Hoover Dam is a good way to apologize. Fools Rush In (1997)

A lukewarm, mediocre hot dog? You shouldn't have.

4) It’s a bad idea to kiss strange old men who crash your wedding. Prelude to a Kiss (1992)

Wait a minute, who invited you?

3) Windex can eliminate zits on your wedding day. My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

Put some windex.

2) Lightning can strike the same place twice. Sweet Home Alabama (2002)

What you wanna marry me for, anyway? So I can kiss you anytime I want.

1) If you don’t say, “I do,” you’re not married. The Princess Bride (1987)

"Then you're not married. If you didn't say it, you didn't do it. Wouldn't you agree, Your Highness?"

  1. I f*ckin loved movie number five…

    • What’s not to love? Salma Hayek, Matthew Perry, Vegas Shenanigans, and humor about falling onto a cactus. One of my favorite feel-good movies of all time.

      • True, but you got to admit that it was a tad bit corny. even as a kid i thought this movie strayed from real situations at time. Like the scene where she is scolding him while giving birth to their baby on the main road near the end. I seriously loved this movie but it had it’s weird moments
