Love and Movies


You know how Netflix makes personalized genres for you based on the movies you watch? Well, my current categories are “Feel-Good Wedding Comedies,” “Romantic Comedies Featuring a Strong Female Lead,” and “Romantic 20th Century Period Pieces Based on a Book.” I think Netflix has pretty much got it down pat :)

In light of my obvious favorite movies, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite love-and-wedding related movie moments!

{Favorite movie kiss: Noah and Allie in The Notebook. I know this is a predictable one, but I shriek every single zillion times I watch it, so I can’t help it!}

{Favorite movie proposal: Henri and Danielle in Ever After. All together now: swoooon! :)}

{Favorite movie wedding: Landon and Jamie in A Walk to Remember, hands down, no questions asked. It makes me bawl my eyes out in the best kind of way!}

{Favorite wedding dress: Liv’s Vera Wang in Bride Wars. I have a serious weakness for full tulle skirts!}

{Favorite wedding shoes: Carrie’s Manolo Blahniks in Sex and the City. A girl’s gotta have her something blue!}

{Favorite Disney princess wedding gown: I’m biased on this one… Ariel has always been my favorite! Belle is a close second :)}

{Favorite wedding guest attire: Sophie in Letters to Juliet… yes, the movie is so predictable, but her dress and hair in the wedding scene are boho-chic flawless}

{Favorite lines about love:
Wesley: Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while.
Buttercup: I will never doubt again.
Wesley: There will never be a need.
From The Princess Bride}

I would love to hear your favorite picks for any of these categories! After all, I need to update my Netflix queue and could use some suggestions :)

    Melanie: Hey Cowboy, you owe me a dance.
    Jake: Nice dress. Where’s your husband?
    Melanie: I’m looking at him, apparently you and I are still hitched.
    Jake: Is that right?
    Melanie:Yeah. Why did you tell me you came to New York?
    Jake: I needed to make something of myself.
    Melanie: ‘Bout done?
    Jake: What is it about you Southern girls. You can’t make the right decisions til you tried all the wrongs.
    Melanie: At least I fight for what I want.
    Jake: Oh what do you want, Melanie? I don’t even think you know.
    Melanie: You’re the first boy I ever kissed Jake and I want you to be the last.
    Jake: Maybe you and I had our chance.
    Melanie: Fine! Have it your way you stubborn ass!
    Jake: Oh whatcha want to be married to me for anyhow?
    Melanie: So I can kiss you anytime I want.
