Katherine Heigl, of 27 Dresses and The Big Wedding fame, is set to star in another bride-centric romantic comedy (and we are so not complaining). Her fun and funny movies are the take-a-break-from-wedding-planning, lay-on-your-couch-with-ice-cream kind of flicks that we never tire of. According to Variety, her new movie Jenny's Wedding sounds like a return to classic Heigl: Her character shakes up her conservative family when she finally decides to get married. The film doesn't have a release date yet, but to tide you over, we rounded up some of our favorite rom-coms to help you de-stress over the weekend. (Bonus: they're all streaming online. No need to leave your house!)
Love Actually: The weather's getting colder and we're starting to see holiday decorations in stores. That means it's time to break out this British ensemble-cast classic. How can you resist Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth, plus Keira Knightley's wedding, and tons of romantic misadventures? You can't and you shouldn't, but don't forget the tissues for this one.
13 Going On 30: Sometimes, romance needs a little (literal) magic. In this 2004 gem, Jennifer Garner's character transforms from geeky 13-year-old to 30-year-old career woman overnight after wishing on some magic dust. While trying to figure out how to save the magazine she works for, she also realizes her childhood crush is engaged. Hilarity and romance ensues! (Keep your eyes peeled for a killer strapless ball gown wedding dress!)
Bridal Fever: Sometimes you just need a fluffy, made-for-TV movie, and this underrated 2008 romp is top-of-the-line in that category. A single book editor moves to the south to help edit the salacious memoirs of a romance writer, and gets caught in between the attention of a successful lawyer and a sensitive bookstore manager along the way. It's perfect for anyone who loves books and romance. (Hint: That's everyone).
Moonrise Kingdom: It's safe to say that Wes Anderson makes the movies that Pinterest boards are made of. If he was a wedding planner, we have no doubt he'd be in high demand. We love a good camp-themed wedding, and Moonrise Kingdom doesn't disappoint—not to mention, it's full of some great wedding songs.
Magic Mike: Stressed out about your wedding? Think about the bachelorette party instead! Ninety minutes of Channing Tatum dancing onscreen should leave you without a care in the world.
