The Father of the Bride cast reunited for another wedding, and it is everything we needed.

It has been 25 years since the star-studded gang – including Steve Martin, Diane Keaton and Kieran Culkin – were last on our screens, for Father of the Bride part 2.

And Netflix gave us the ‘part 3-ish’ of dreams, to raise money for the World Central Kitchen.

Florence Pugh and Ben Platt also got in on the action, taking on the roles of Megan and Georgie – who were born at the end of the 1995 sequel.

The reunion was introduced by Reese Witherspoon, and gave fans a front-row seat to yet another Banks family wedding.

Although this one was a little different, with everyone logging in over Zoom.

Matty, played by Kieran Culkin, may have been a child for the first two instalments, but he was all grown up, and gathered the family for a video call – where he dropped the bombshell that he had arranged a secret wedding for fiancée Rachel (Alexandra Shipp).

Naturally George (Steve Martin) had a meltdown on screen after realising that Rachel’s dad (Robert De Niro) had wriggled out of paying for a big fancy ceremony.

Side note: We would have loved to have seen Robert wind up in jail after an almighty rant about hot dog buns.


And it wouldn’t have been a true reunion without wedding planner and all-round legend Franck Eggelhoffer (Martin Short), who was on hand to officiate the nuptials.

As the couple said their vows, a montage of clips played on screen, with George telling viewers: ‘We parents never fully see our children as grownups. We look at them and can still see the little kid they used to be.

‘The memories of all those moments we shared stay with us. Not just the big ones, the ones we all have photos of, but the little ones.

‘It’s especially those memories, the ones you’d think you’d forget over time that we treasure the most.’


Honestly, we have so many emotions.

And it turns out we’re not the only ones, as viewers were in tears watching the scenes.

Flocking to Twitter, a fan penned: ‘Oh my goodness….this @netflix live Father of the Bride 3ish is amazing!!! I am loving it!!!!’

‘Are you cry-laughing through Father of the Bride Part 3ish or are you normal?,’ another asked.

‘Anyone else watched Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) yet? It is so sentimental, it made me cry and we’re 100% going to watch it again tomorrow after a double feature of the first 2! Love love love,’ one agreed.

‘Just watched Father of the Bride Part 3 and my eyes teared up. It was really touching,’ a Twitter user said.

While a follower added: ‘Seriously @netflix!!!! Father of the Bride Part 3 (ish) is the best thing that’s happened in 2020.’

We totally agree.
