”Betsy’s Wedding” made our list of the best and worst movie weddings

THE BLESSED EVENT The Long Island nuptials of Betsy (Molly Ringwald, center, with parents Madeline Kahn and Alan Alda) and Jake (Dylan Walsh)

WHAT’S THE HITCH? An aspiring fashion designer, Betsy insists on designing her own gown, which includes lots of odd cutaways and a top hat instead of a veil. (We preferred Ringwald’s thrift-shop-chic designs in Pretty in Pink.) To be fair, the dress is the least of the wedding’s comical disasters, especially compared to the leaky tent that collapses under a deluge and drenches the guests.
