Just a note: while romantical for some, I will not be having a barn wedding. I plan on buying a fab pair of designer heels, not boots, to go under my dress :)
All of this venue hunting has me thinking -- what are some inspirational reception venues from the movies? Of course, I immediately thought of ...
When Harry Met Sally's big urban-venue NYC wedding for their besties. Truth: part of me wishes I could do a NYC wedding, and I know my Northern fam would love it, too. But my oh my, if we all think ATL is pricey compared to the 'burbs, I can't even imagine Manhattan.
And who can forget Steel Magnolia's Pepto Bismol pink-perfect tent reception?
Father of the Bride (both of them) did a backyard reception. Remember the opening scene with the dad sitting there, the house destroyed around him? Love it.
Oh man, any of the weddings in The Wedding Singer ... ha, hello, New Jersey in the 80's! Hilariously accurate and heart-warming for me at the same time. This movie was all about the reception hall.
The Godfather? Almost, almost my favorite venue! Only at the Godfather's huge Staten Island complex, though, of course, could they have fit in what looked like 500+ guests.
But speaking of hilarious wedding movies, I think one of my all-time favorite wedding venues was the main one from Wedding Crashers! I love love LOVE the New England home and mansion they used - from the elegant dockside happy hour to the post-wedding sailing trip. If I was a NE gal? Yep, that's where I would get married, too.
Vince Vaughn can come, too.
What about you? What are some of your favorite wedding movie moments and spots?
