You never know what you are going to get with a movie wedding scene. Will it be joyous or sad? Will she actually marry the jerk or will the idiot who waited till the last second show up and confess their love? Is the groom’s buddy gonna try and talk him out of it while standing the alter or will a game of tag breakout? How about some murderous Cowboys crashing your perfect day to shoot everyone including the priest? Wedding scenes can be the best part of a film by introducing us to the characters and plot points. Usually it they are the climax of the film giving the viewer everything they wanted or pulling the rug out from under their feet. Some of the best ones are the weddings that just play out like they are supposed to.
