First Wives Club (1996)

My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)
It’s no secret that the ’90s was the best time for rom-coms, and this Julia Roberts-Dermot Mulroney flick is no exception. After Michael (Mulroney) announces he’s tying the knot with Kimmy (Cameron Diaz), his childhood best friend, Julianne (Roberts), tries to put a stop to the nuptials so that she can be with him herself. Things don’t go as planned, though, and wedding-set chaos ensues.

Never Been Kissed (1999)
Drew Barrymore and David Arquette star in this classic ’90s rom-com, which follows Josie, an insecure copy editor (Barrymore) who’s tasked with going undercover in a high school for a story. The only problem? Josie’s lack of real-life romantic relationships… and her less-than-ideal high school experience the first time around.

The Wedding Planner (2001)
Why We Love It: In Jennifer Lopez’s first major rom-com, she stars as a wedding planner who falls for one of the grooms (Matthew McConaughey) she’s working for. While fans know the flick with Lopez and McConaughey’s performances, stars including Brendan Fraser, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Jennifer Love Hewitt were first approached to play the leading roles. The final film is a perfect post-’90s rom-com complete with a horseback riding mishap, flirty dance lessons and, of course, a happily ever after.
