It’s tradition for a bride to wear something borrowed and something blue on her wedding day. Bridesmaids, the R-rated Kristin Wiig vehicle about a bachelorette party gone wild that opens May 13, borrows more from the boys’ Hangover than its more feminine matrimonial predecessors, and its “blue” could refer to black-and-blues inflicted at Melissa McCarthy’s Female Fight Club.

But there have been many great wedding movies, probably because no two weddings are alike: different venue, different best-man speech, different DJ, different great-aunt who’s frisky. It’s fertile ground for comedy, especially when you include the elaborate build-up: the eccentric wedding planner, the bundt-cake peace offering during the initial meeting of the in-laws, the horrific karaoke session that seems to stop time. Take a film like Four Weddings and a Funeral, which manages to include multiple nuptials without once feeling redundant.

But what is your favorite wedding movie? Which one do you find yourself watching over and over, as if it were your own wedding video? Are you a sucker for a perfect happy ending? Or do you appreciate a complicated conclusion where love means letting go? RSVP below.
