Let's go to the Wedding Movies!

It feels like the holidays already! And so is the time to gather together and watch wedding movies. If you are planning such as theme for a bridal shower, here are some of Dahlia's all-time favorite movies--many of which are now on DVD. The list:

Made of Honor

27 Dresses

Bride Wars

Wedding Crashers - some may not like it, but overall, it's a good laugh!

The Wedding Planner

Others you may also like:

The Wedding Date, Sweet, Home Alabama, Maid in Manhattan, My Best Friend's Wedding, Runaway Bride, and My Big Fat, Greek Wedding.

I love ALL of these movies, but my favorite has to be "My Best Friend's Wedding!" It is so romantic and love the wedding setting. So, bring out the popcorn! Or make it a hibachi party with your own mini grill. Whatever you plan to do, make the event fun. My personal favorite is to bring in good old-fashioned comfort food like fried chicken, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, clam chowder, and lasagna.

Luv These Gorgeous Southern Cal Wedding Venues

Some gorgeous wedding locations await you in California where the weather is mild and generally sunny. I love this locations for their wonderful views, romantic scenery, and elegant landscaping. Once you have visited these venues, it may be the hardest part deciding where to get married. They're all so beautiful, but remember once you decide, book EARLY! Many places can fill up fast early in the year, so be sure to plan way ahead.

Check them out:

Pelican Hill in Newport Beach - this place packs in a grand view of the ocean with its lovely ceremony area and classic decor coupled with romantic Romanesque architecture. It's a high price to pay but the villas in the resort are superb. The drive down to Newport Beach is worth every mile! Did I mention the complimentary bridal suite villa for the married couple!? And a butler and a concierge on the day of the wedding! Just love the pool area, too.

Terranea - located in lush Palos Verdes, this resort has all the amenities of a 5-star resort. There are villas with grand views of the Pacific Ocean and you can even have a girl's spa night right at the resort. Golf, anyone? You also a choice of three different venues within the area. How cool is that?

Mt. Woodson - situated in the hills of San Diego, this golf club touts a magnificent castle that has been around since 1921. It feels like an enchanting place even though it is just 30 minutes away from downtown San Diego. It is perfect a romantic castle-inspired wedding under the summer stars!
