ON MOVIES ~ Wedding Bells...

Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Weddings...

This weekend we attended a wedding for two great friends of ours who make a perfect match and we were honored to be included in their special day. We love weddings, and not just for the open bar. They all have the same premise in mind but each provides its own traditions, theme and style. There are so many movies about weddings, so we thought we'd focus on our favorite one rather than our usual list. But that's mainly because we're being lazy Bumbles recovering from all that wedding fun. Share on your blog, in whatever format you choose, wedding themed movies then link back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants! Also, while you're at it, visit Molly's recent Guest Post (which has nothing to do with weddings) if you missed the link on Friday.

  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
  • We have yet to find someone who did not enjoy this movie. We are partial to it personally because it came out when we were in the process of planning our own wedding. The laughs that this movie provided were excellent comic relief and the overall theme of family, love and acceptance were good morsals to tuck away and think about whenever the planning process got difficult. We stop and watch it whenever we come across it on TV and reference it often - such as whenever we use Windex or come across a bundt cake. And someday we think it would be really fun to go to a Greek wedding - big, fat or otherwise.

    Do you have a topic to suggest to the Monday Movie Meme? Leave it in the Comments section or send us an e-mail.

    Kylie said...

    I think my favorite wedding movie would have to be My Best Friend's Wedding. Every time I think of Rupert Everett's scene when he breaks into song at the dinner table, I crack up!

    Allie said...

    I'm actually not a fan of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I didn't hate it but I lost interest in it. Maybe I should give it another shot sometime. =]


    Mine are up!


    Also: I finally read the comment you left on my blogger. I got that one thing fixed and I hope you enjoy The Devil's Backbone when you get the chance.

    The one that comes to my mind first in Four Weddings and a Funeral. I loved that one. Actually Runaway Bride comes to mind also. Maybe I just like my wedding movies with more than one wedding.

    My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a great wedding movie. I love the light-hearted humor! Overall, a wonderful movie :)

    Mine is UP.

    You guys definitely need to see 27 Dresses. One of my favorite movies that I could watch repeatedly ;) I certainly feel like 27 bridesmaids for all of my friends! LOL

    For a new theme - how about "end of the world movies". For example "Armageddon". I love those.

    Since I didn't discover your blog until today I didn't get to post your meme on my blog. But I also love "While You Were Sleeping" which features a wedding.

    Ashley Ladd said...

    Oh yes! I also love 27 Dresses. My family's sick of me watching it.

    Obviously I missed this one (was in the Vail wine bar :)), but Four Weddings and a Funeral and Meet the Parents come to mind.
