When planning a wedding, it’s easy to get swept up in the whole process. Even nights with friends may turn into envelope stuffing and Say Yes to the Dress marathons. Given that there are a plethora of films based around a climatic conclusion of a couple’s nuptials, a girls’ night might have your closest friends suggesting movies about other engagements to highlight your own.
However, not all wedding movies are created equal. Because conflict is the driving force of narrative storytelling, many movies based around someone’s nuptials consist of a lot of problems before (if not during) the trip down the aisle. Even the films that have happy endings can have plot lines along the way that may be troubling to someone currently in the midst of planning their own wedding.
With that said, engaged couples may want to skip these five flicks during their next movie night:
1. My Best Friend's Wedding
4. Corpse Bride
