Royal Wedding: Jilted at the altar? Remember these classic film scenes?
It’s every bride or groom’s worst nightmare, being ditched by their partner at the altar – even worse if the whole world is watching.
So let’s hope it’s not a reality for Meghan and Harry.
For fun we’ve put together a list of some runaway brides and grooms from our favourite wedding films.
The nation will be hoping nothing remotely like these scenes happens on Saturady…
The Wedding Singer
Adam Sandler seems to always be unlucky in love, and that doesn’t change in The Wedding Singer as he is left at the altar by bride Linda, listening to the tune of “Don’t Stop Believin”.
Her reason was that he lost his ambition of becoming a rock star and settled for being a wedding singer and the disappointment is enough to send poor Robbie on a drunken binge at work. Someone take away his mic!
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Charles, British Bachelor and serial monogamist and his friends are always attending weddings but never seem to be the bride or groom in wedding classic, Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Committed to marry his wacky on-off girlfriend Henrietta (who he’s already dumped once!), Charles is approached by old flame Carrie on the morning of their wedding telling him that she wants to be with him.
When the priest asks for objections, Charles friend David says in sign language that he suspects the groom loves someone else.
The vicar asks whether Charles does love someone else, and Charles answers “I do” and gets punched in the eye by the bride and chaos ensues!
Sex and the City
Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) finally gets the commitment she has dreamed of from the non-committal Mr Big in Sex and the City film from 2008, but it doesn’t go that smoothly…
Whilst Carrie gets carried away with dreams of a fashionista’s dream wedding, Mr Big gets cold feet after talking to Miranda, who is really projecting the problems she is facing in her own marriage.
When Mr Big jilts her at the altar, the girls must console her whilst going away with her on her honeymoon.
But Sex and the City never ends on a low and the couple reconcile for more of a low key affair.
Better late than never with The Graduate…
Dustin Hoffman plays Ben Braddock, a college grad who doesn’t know what to do with his life.
When he returns home he begins an affair with Mrs. Robinson but soon falls in love with her already engaged daughter, Elaine.
The film ends dramatically with Braddock crashing Elaine’s wedding just as she’s said “I do”. Whilst a fight breaks out, the two run off and hop on a bus!
27 Dresses is one of those wedding films you can’t help but love, but poor Kevin(James Marsden), jilted at his wedding by his bride who left him for his roommate from college is cynical about relationships and marriage.
Enter unlucky in love Jane (Katherine Heigl) who has been bridesmaid for 27 weddings and slowly manages to talk him around on the subject.
