As a wedding-loving little girl, Father of the Bride was is one of my favorite movies. My 7-year-old-self would dream of my very own wedding day exactly like Annie Banks'. I even imagined myself as a 22-year-old bride for most of my childhood because of this very movie (22 seemed SO OLD - my how things change as you grow up!). This past Sunday, I was craving some FOTB, so Fiancé and I watched the movie with my parents... I was shocked by my 26-year-old bride-to-be reaction. Basically, I cried for the better part of the 2 hours that the movie lasted. Opening scene where George talks about losing his little girl: tears. The montage of pictures in his head of his little girl as a baby and growing up: more tears.
I had completely forgotten that they played My Girl during this scene. (This happens to be the song my dad sang to me as a little girl AND the song that we will dance to for the Father/Daughter dance... cue more sobbing. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house during this scene.)
Don't you just adore Franc? Love that accent! (And love him for providing some comic relief between the sobs... THANK YOU, MARTIN.)
Ever since our engagement, I have cried at the walk-down-the-aisle-moment in movies... this was no exception. Now, please don't write me off as the crazy crying bride (despite the mounting pile of evidence). I could not be more excited about my upcoming wedding and spending the rest of my life with my best friend and the man of my dreams. I get so emotional because I have been dreaming of this day since I first saw Father of the Bride or even before, and all of my dreams are coming true. (I cannot even explain the excitement when I picture the details of the day, doodle my new married name, or think about our new life as husband and wife.) But even though I am all grown up and a lady, there is a part of me that will always be Daddy's Little Girl. How are we EVER going to make it down the aisle (the Church has a loooong aisle) and through My Girl sans tears?
Are any of you other brides-to-be super emotional too?
