27 Dresses: Unusual Weddings

This is an attractive romantic comedy that talks about weddings, a perfect theme for our English classes.






I. Talk to a partner about the following questions:


1. Have you ever been to an unusual wedding? Describe it.

2. What are some of the unusual weddings you have heard of?

3. Would you like to be a guest of an extremely unusual wedding ceremony? Why?

4. What's your opinion about this kind of wedding?

5. Would you like your wedding not to be a traditional one? Why (not)?

6. Which kind of marriages last longer? Those in which ceremonies are traditional according to their culture or one in which the ceremony does not follow the usual conventions set by culture? Why?


You may have more warm-up questions about weddings and vocabulary related to it in these two posts published months ago here in the blog.


II. Watch the scene from the movie 27 Dresses. Work in teams. Make a list of all kinds of weddings you manage to remember from the segment.


YOU MUST NOT TAKE NOTES AS YOU WATCH THE SEGMENT.
