In the film, Jennifer Aniston is a bridesmaid in her younger sister's wedding. The wedding is a beautiful outdoor wedding.
I started thinking, I've been to probably a dozen and a half weddings in my life. Of those, only one of them has been an outdoor wedding.
So let's say, about 5% of the weddings I've been to are outdoor weddings.
Yet, when it comes to film, I would think a much higher percentage of weddings on film are lush outdoor weddings. Whether it's the Godfather, 27 Dresses, Steel Magnolias, Sweet Home Alabama, Monsoon Wedding, You Me and Dupree, and Meet the Parents.
Certainly, there are a lot of films with popular non-outside scenes, but I just feel like I haven't been to many outdoor weddings?
Is it because when you're making a film you can change the scheduled shooting day if the weathers bad, so you're more relaxed about shooting an outside wedding day?
Or maybe it's about geography? I've been to weddings in Texas, Colorado, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Kansas and Florida, but I've never been to a wedding in Los Angeles...maybe that's the problem?
