What not to do at a wedding

Wedding season is upon us and, whilst choosing the perfect venue and sampling duck fondue canapés can be fun, not everything to do with matrimony comes with a rose-tinted edge. Whether you're the bridesmaid charged with organising ten hens or the bride dealing with an over-enthusiastic family, weddings can be a minefield of stress, politics and mishaps waiting to happen. This is no more true than in the world of movie weddings, where trouble-prone maids of honour, misbehaving best men and altercations at the altar abandon at every corner. With this in mind, Stylist takes a look at some our favourite big-screen nuptials, with a look at what not to do on the run-up to the big day.
