Classic Wedding/Romance Movies

In 2011, Inspiration, May 2011 on May 30, 2011 at 12:51 am

As part of my attempt to re-create a vintage feel for my wedding, I have decided I need to watch some classic 1930s-1950s movies (oh dear, however will I survive).

But now the challenge arises, I can’t actually name that many classic movies that I know have weddings in them, so I’m on a quest to find them.

I’ll include a list here (in no particular order), but feel free to comment with any others to help me along:
