Father of the Bride (1991) Poster

Trivia

Among the wedding gifts Annie receives is a Venus de Milo statue with a clock in the stomach. In the original Father of the Bride (1950), Kay also receives this as one of her wedding gifts. Both look at it with disdain.
George Banks says that he doesn't want the wedding to bankrupt him so he'll end up wandering the streets in a bathrobe. This happens to Steve Martin's character in The Jerk (1979).
Although the cost of the wedding is a hot topic in the film, the final price tag is never revealed. After crunching the numbers given by Franck's assistant Howard Weinstein, 572 guests at $250.00 a head, we learn that the wedding cost George $143,000.00. Considering that the film was released in 1991, the $143,000.00 price tag has not been adjusted for present day inflation.
Kimberly Williams and George Newbern were filmed in a series of Hallmark Card commercials as a couple.
Steve Martin's character of George Banks was named after David Tomlinson's character of the same name in Mary Poppins (1964).
George's middle name, Stanley, is named after Spencer Tracy's character in the original Father of the Bride (1950).
Eugene Levy and Martin Short who appear together in Father of the Bride as well as the sequel both attended Westdale Secondary School in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Actor Eugene Levy appears in both this movie and Father of the Bride Part II (1995), but as different characters in each one.
Tom Irish plays the same character, Ben Banks, in both the 1950 and the 1991 versions of "Father of the Bride".
