Oh my goodness-I love every single one of those movies-GREATNESS! Thanks for saving Jumble and for posting such a great guest post. Happy Friday to you both.

PencilGirl said...

The best list ever!! I love wedding movies.. :D :D :)

Amy said...

OMG I love wedding movies. I think this list is missing 27 Dresses....and FOB and My BF's Wedding would tie for the #1 spot... and at Bryan's parents house is my least favourite scene.

I also had no idea Patrick Dempsey was in Sweet Home Alabama... I definitely haven't watched that movie since before Grey's.

I also feel the need to watch at least 4 of these movies RIGHT NOW.

Amazingly detailed list! Loved it. Especially the "best lines" part.

Oilfield Trash said...

Good guest post.

My fav of all of those is either Greek or Alabama. Although I am more partial to Alabama because of Reese and the line at the end of the movie. "Why don't you go back to your double wide and deep fry something".

A woman that I know very very well in CT was actually in My Best Friends Wedding. Her brother are famous directors. She's in all the Naked Guns, Ghost, MBFW, and a bunch more. Their mother is in all their movies as well. I loved MBFW most of all.

I love ALL those movies, and would you believe that I am actually watching Maid of Honour as I'm typing this!! Spooky or what?!

Ms Jenna said...

Very good list but I would have put Father of the Bride first just because it's an old childhood favorite. That's the only change though, you're very wise.

PS- My Big Fat Greek Wedding is shockingly accuate. My friend is Greek, that is her life, makes the movie even more enjoyable!

This list was amazing! I love movies and Jess definitely picked my top ten but they wouldn't be in the same order :D

The Onion said...

Steel magnolias is one I kind of consider a wedding movie, but mostly because I can't stop laughing at TOme Skeritt shooting the birds out of the tree and Armadillo cake. The list rocks. If I hadn't had two drinks with dinner I would keep adding,'re lucky!

Jo-Anne Mother and Nanna said...

I love 8 out of 10 so not bad I guess my fav would have to be Father of the Bride.

hed said...

Awesome list. I had to scroll to number one because if it wasn't "My Best Friend's Wedding", I wasn't gonna read it! (Just kidding!)


Jess said...

Hey Jumble - thanks for the love! I loved all of the comments. :) Sorry I have been MIA the past week. Hubs and I are trying to buy a house, so it's been CHAOS over in Jessland.

Glad your Project Save Jumble Mash is going well! Love love love love love!

I LOVE Sweet Home Alabama. And I love this list.. I'm in wedding mode and often just want to watch a good, cheesy wedding movie ;)

Nicole said...
