The Royal Wedding (as if we need to tell you) unfolds this Friday, April 29, but you don't have to wait that long to indulge in your love of all things nuptial. You're cordially invited to some of cinema's most lavish, most formal wedding ceremonies. Our brides and grooms include princes and princesses, a baron, a nun and even an ogre. We've got French, Austrian and African royalty, not to mention Russian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox rites. We've even included a few rather unorthodox ceremonies that remind us that while over-the-top weddings are fabulous, all you need is love.
We couldn't find clips of all our favorite wedding scenes, alas, but please RSVP with your own favorites we may have overlooked.
