Think Father of the Bride x 3. I actually liked this better than Father of the Bride because, strangely enough, the father (John Larroquette) is much more rational, sentimental, and passionate than George Banks (Steve Martin) about giving his three daughters the day of their dreams. In Father of the Bride, the daughter's and family's happiness is secondary to the anxiety-ridden bottom line. In Wedding Daze, yes John L. (forgot the character name) is stressing over the financials, but he also remains approachable and expressive of his deep love for his daughters. That component was not displayed as much in Father of the Bride.
If you liked Father of the Bride, you will definitely like this.
If you didn't like Father of the Bride, you might like this.
Either way, I enjoyed it and wouldn't mind watching it again.
Great Romantic Comedy that I am glad to add to my collection

""Wedding Daze" is a Hallmark TV movie that centers around a father with 3 daughters who all become engaged and begin planning their weddings at the same time! There are several times that the movie reminds me of "Father of the Bride," but I have to say that I think "Wedding Daze" is much more humorous. The family sentiment and closeness is nice; the romances are great. It is a chick flick, but it is an A+ movie!"
Father of the Bride times three

"It is inevitable that this movie should be compared to Father of the Bride. John Larroquette is the father of three adult women. The oldest breaks her leg, the second finds her live-in boy friend in bed with another woman, and pretty soon all three are living at home again. To complicate matters, each of them receives a marriage proposal and accepts.
Too much happens too fast to too many people for the story to get into great detail about anyone, although Larroquette does go through some of the same experiences as Steve Martin in Father of the Bride. As each engagement is announced and the expenses keep piling up, he and his wife (played by Karen Valentine) change their vacation plans from a trip around the world, to a tour of Europe, and eventually a trip to Las Vegas. French Stewart has some funny moments as the wedding planner (and he does it without the silly, phony accent that Martin Short used in Father of the Bride).
All in all, this is a fun movie and well worth the time it takes to watch it."
Three sister ... three weddings ... one day

"This is a romantic comedy and it is full of witty and funny scenes. The three sisters are quite different but when they get together they click well. Also their boyfriends are just as different as the sisters are. A good family movie, or a pre-nuptial date movie."
Just an okay movie

"Rent it if you have to watch it. Otherwise, don't waste your time. It's a complete ripoff from Father of the Bride with Steve Martin. 3 annoying sisters get engaged to 3 unfortunate looking guys and decide to have one big wedding on the same day. The parents dish out their 'around the world' savings so the brides can get hitched. Everyone lives happily ever after and the sisters do a stupid sister circle dance."
Just Short of Funny

""Wedding Daze" had the potential to be a very funny movie. Most of the actors portrayed likeable characters who were good to see get connected romantically. One exception was the Italian groom who we were given the least time to get to know in the film. He was also portrayed a little to much as the stereotypical overemotional Italian. The other exception was the wedding planner. I enjoyed the fact that he went from trying to calm everyone's nerves-especially the father's-to being somewhat of a wreck himself by wedding day. But even then he was portrayed less than over-the-top as he could have been, and he just seemed to disappear toward the end of the movie. Some reviewers have compared this to "Father of the Bride". The closest "Wedding Daze" comes to "Father of..." is the father's voice-over to discribe his feelings through the events and the fact that it's about a wedding. There's not near the physical comedy you'll find in the "Father of..." movies. I would recommend "Wedding Daze" if you're looking for a humorous movie about finding relationships right in front of you where you weren't even looking. But if you want a FUNNY movie about a man loosing his mind, along with his daughter and his bank account, I recommend the "Father of the Bride" movies."
