16 Movies All Brides (& Romantics) Should Watch
Father of the Bride
There are a lot of wedding movies about brides, bridesmaids, and grooms, but what about the rest of the wedding party and family? Father of the Bride focuses more on the parents than other wedding movies. Dad George Banks (Steve Martin) and mom Nina Banks (Diane Keaton) are floored when their daughter Annie (Kimberly Williams) returns from a semester abroad to announce that she’s engaged. It’s difficult enough for the news to sink in for protective George. Then before he knows it, he is in the midst of wedding planning and meeting his daughter’s fiancé and in-laws. It’s an interesting (and often hilarious) perspective for anyone to watch. But, it is especially nice for brides to see. Mostly because it’ll make them laugh, but also to add some perspective about how others might be feeling.
