With cold weather still hanging on by a thread and wedding season just around the corner, we take a moment to look back on our favorite movie weddings. Here are our winners:

Best Wedding Music: Love Actually

This wedding was filled with surprise musicians popping up throughout the pews. Although I always wondered how no one notice some guy walking in with a trombone, this is still a sweet ceremony.

Worst (& the Most) Bridesmaids Dresses: 27 Dresses27 Dresses
This final scene from 27 Dresses is iconic when it comes to ridiculous bridesmaids themes and dress choices.

Most Classic: The Sound of MusicSound of Music Wedding
While this scene was never my favorite when I watch The Sound of Muisc as a child, I’ve come to appreciate the beauty in it. Maria has found love and the beautiful cathedral combine with her massive train evokes royalty like no one but Julie Andrews could capture. (Unless you are actually royal…)

Favorite from Childhood: The Parent Trapparent-trap-wedding
If you grew up during the late 90s and Early 00s, there’s no way you missed Lindsay Lohan’s breakout role in the Parent Trap. Although I was upset for a while summer when I found out she was only one person, the final wedding scene backed by Natalie Cole’s “Everlasting Love” is still a favorite of mine.

Funniest: My Big Fat Greek Weddingbig fat greek
If anything, this entire movie taught us that while weddings are often stressful, what really matters is the marriage, not the actual ceremony. And also that Windex cures all.

Honorable Mentions:
Bridesmaids
Runaway Bride
4 Weddings and A Funeral
A Walk to Remember

Here is a fun post I found on the Knot.  How many of these traditions/superstitions did you know?

Enjoy!

If you’re looking for ways to put a unique spin on your wedding day (and maybe become an internet sensation at the same time), special dances are a great opportunity to do just that.

I’m always a fan of song mash-ups and choreography… this video has both! Take a look at this Mother/Son Dance that’s blowin’ up on YouTube:

The verdict is in: this Save the Date video is the best thing in the entire world, let alone the most creative save the date we’ve ever seen.  Oh, and it is also the thing that made me cry happy tears at my desk.

It illustrates the sheer joy and simplicity of falling in love when it’s right. We love love!!!

Get a crate of tissues and watch this amazingness.

There were so many classic and beautiful weddings that took place this past year – too many to recap. So, let’s focus on the wonderfully weird and unique ones!

This one is our favorite due to its musical theme: a bride and groom played a guitar duet when the bride walked down the aisle.

The groom is a guitar teacher, so of course he pulled out an electric guitar during the processional and started playing Pachelbel’s Canon in D. To add to the surprise, the bride joined in having just learned how to play.

Check out the video, it’s adorable.

Call us sentimental. Call us nostalgic. Call us to book one of our bands for your wedding. It’s January after all, and we know you just got engaged over the holidays! Congratulations!

Do you love bacon? I do!!

Organizers behind the annual bacon festival in Des Moines say they’ve booked their first reservation for a bacon-themed wedding. The Iowa Bacon Board (yes, that exists) says the lucky couple will be wed at the seventh annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.

Though the “Viva Las Bacon” weddings will take place in the private Chapel OHHHH Bacon, one wedding will be free if the ceremony takes place publicly on a stage.

There are three more wedding packages available, so get on it! After months of dieting to squeeze into a wedding dress, I can think of no better way to celebrate. Oink!
