    27 Of The Greatest Movie Wedding Scenes Of All Time

    "I firmly believe that anyone who doesn't cry during that scene is heartless."

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community for their favorite wedding scenes from movies, and they did not disappoint! Here are some of the most magical wedding moments:

    1. Colin and Araminta's wedding in Crazy Rich Asians

    "I firmly believe that anyone who doesn't cry during that scene is heartless. A grown man next to me in the theater cried as much as I did. The cover of 'Can't Help Falling in Love' playing while the bridal party walks out is perfect. Then it gets even better when the music stops, and the water flows down the aisle, and the bride starts walking down in the water. It's gorgeous."

    "Araminta's wedding was STUNNING. I've been married for almost 14 years, and that wedding gave me #weddinggoals. Most important though was watching Rachel and Nick gazing at each other with that beautiful music in the background. Ermergerd."

    "Their wedding is truly one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. The decorations, the lighting, the music, and especially the dress! I love watching that movie specifically for that scene. And the reception afterward is just as beautiful. Edward's speech gets me every time."

    3. Ariel and Eric's wedding in The Little Mermaid

    Disney

    "Ariel's wedding at the end always got me as a kid. I was always jealous of her dress, but the best part was when she finally made amends with her father and hugged him goodbye."

    4. Kimmy and Michael's wedding in My Best Friend's Wedding

    "I love the toast Julia Roberts gives at the reception and how she 'loans' them their song afterward. Really, I love the whole wedding scene, seeing them leave happily together, that she doesn’t get the guy, seeing George show up for her... but her speech gets me every time. And before someone starts — yes, I know she acted like a nutcase and probably wouldn’t still be the maid of honor, but it will always be one of my favorite movies!"

    5. Juliet and Peter's wedding in Love Actually

    "First of all, Keira Knightley has such a fantastic entrance, walking into focus as she walks down the aisle. Then there's the whole musical surprise after the ceremony, with their friends popping up in the pews to play along. It’s such a joyful moment."

    "Mr. Portokalos's speech about how Ian isn't so different after all and his big wedding gift are so heartwarming."

    7. Will and Elizabeth's wedding in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

    Disney

    "I know this is an unconventional wedding, but no other wedding scenes tug at my heart strings more than Elizabeth and Will’s. The music, the emotion, UGH MY HEART. It’s chaos all around, but to them, it’s just about them and how much they love each other."

    8. Jane and Kevin's wedding in 27 Dresses

    20th Century Fox

    "Jane looked beautiful, and the monologue about how it was her turn and how she didn't have to be asked to hold something was beautiful. Then she said that the only thing that mattered was who was waiting for her at the end of the aisle, and Kevin looked up. It makes me swoon every time."

    dumbgurl04

    "And she got to look at the groom’s face as she walked down the aisle, knowing this time, that expression was all for her."

    9. Akeem and Lisa's wedding in Coming to America

    "This wedding is so heartwarming. Akeem is so sad on his wedding day until he lifts the veil of his bride and discovers he’s marrying Lisa, his true love, who’s absolutely stunning in her pink dress. He looks at his parents with a huge smile on his face, and they smile back. It’s the sweetest moment."

    Universal

    "I love the wedding scene between Sky and Sophie and how it flips the narrative to them not getting married and switches to Sophie's mom, Donna, and her lost love Sam."

    12. Fleur and Bill's wedding in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1

    Warner Bros.

    "Fleur and Bill get married amid war, knowing that danger is right around the corner. Their reception is interrupted by Kingsley’s message saying the Minister of Magic has been killed and that the enemy is coming. They embrace each other once more before scattering to battle positions. They just want to solidify their bond while they are still alive and able. It's beautiful."

    13. Queen Clarisse and Joe's wedding in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement

    Buena Vista

    "The entire wedding/not wedding/wedding scene in the second Princess Diaries. It's gorgeous, heartwarming, and Mia gives an amazing feminist speech. Even though she doesn't get married, Queen Clarisse and Joe do in the same scene, which is one of the cutest weddings ever."

    14. Tim and Mary's wedding in About Time

    Universal

    "About Time takes the cake for me. The English countryside, the rain, Rachel McAdams' red wedding dress, all of it. Everything that can go wrong does, and they don’t even care because they’re so madly in love."

    hollandt3

    "It’s stunning, real, and cute. I hope my wedding is like it. I'm literally walking down the aisle to the song they use because I love it so much!"

    "That entire scene always gets me. And especially during the vows when Annie begins hers and George (Steve Martin) reaches for Nina's (Diane Keaton) hand."

    anam16

    "The way they transformed the house, the fluffy gown, and her shoes! My 12-year-old mind was blown that you can wear sneakers to your own wedding."

    17. Jack and Ally's wedding in A Star Is Born

    Warner Bros.

    "It was so cute!! Jackson made the wedding ring out of a wire, then casually slipped it onto her finger under the table. They were married that day with Ally in a borrowed dress. The cake smear scene was really cute. The movie was also amazing overall, and both characters had AMAZING chemistry!!"

    "It isn’t the main character's wedding, but the chaos of Jess trying to make it to her soccer game with all the wedding things happening is so cool."

    Columbia

    Disney/ Motion Pictures

    "Not only are the venue and Margaret’s dress gorgeous, but you can see (and feel!) the chemistry between the main characters. Although it ends the way it does, it’s really just a great wedding scene...has lots of passion, but not in the typical wedding scene way. I’m a sucker for a good dramatic wedding scene!"

    22. Kip and LaFawnduh's wedding in Napoleon Dynamite

    "This wedding is the most iconic end credits scene of all time. Awkward karaoke, riding across a field on a horse...what's not to love?"

    "Michael and Candace's wedding is so cute. Even though they just lost their wedding venue, they make it work with laughs and love. And Michael includes his new stepson in his vows, which is really sweet. Plus, Regina Hall looks gorgeous as ever."
