Did You Know?
Annie (played by Kimberly Williams-Paisley) reacts in horror at her father's suggestion of a barbecue/picnic wedding reception, opting instead for a more elegant event. In real life, Kimberly's wedding reception was much more casual than that of Annie's, it actually was more of a down-home barbecue picnic. The actress married country singer Brad Paisley in 2003, about twelve years after the release of this film. See more
In the supermarket, George says that he's removing 4 hot dog buns from the packet of 12 because he only wants 8 buns to go with 8 wieners. Yet he does this with 3 packets of buns. So if he'd just taken 2 packs of 12, he would have the same amount as 3 packs of 8. But then he probably isn't thinking straight because he's stressed with the wedding plans. See more
Can I put Cameron back on the list if he promises not to eat?
You know, that's not a bad idea. Who else can we ask not to eat? My parents and your mother.
Why don't we just charge people? That way we can make money on the wedding?
