Here’s everything we know:

What is Mother of the Bride about?

Emma Winslow is an influencer who is getting married to the perfect man, RJ, is having the perfect destination wedding in Thailand and will have her family with her. But her biggest concern is breaking the news to her mother. 

Dr. Lana Winslow is a no-nonsense scientist who always makes sure that things go her way. She has high expectations from her daughter and is basically a controlling mama bear. However, like her mother, Emma is a bulldozing bride who does it way too subtly till both mother and daughter realise that they are two sides of the same coin.

While Lana agrees to go with the flow for her daughter’s happiness, it doesn’t help that RJ’s dad is Lana’s first love, Will. The whole squad is in town for the wedding and as they start hanging out, the past is brought up and sparks once again fly between Lana and Will. In the meantime, their breakup story has Emma doubting RJ.

We have extensive coverage of Mother of the Bride on the site, including a movie review. You can find those HERE!

Will there be a Mother of the Bride 2? 

At the time of writing, Netflix hasn’t announced a sequel to Mother of the Bride.

Mother of the Bride has been co-produced by MPCA and Living Films which have several titles to their names. They have several sequels like Dumb and Dumberer, The Princess Switch 2, The Hangover II and more.

As for Netflix, it picks up projects they have distributed and announces sequels depending on the popularity, views and drop-off rates. Some movies are instantly renewed like Enola Holmes and Rebel Moon while others take years such as Extraction and Murder Mystery.

So, if Mother of the Bride does well on Netflix, we could maybe get a sequel. But it is unlikely at the moment.

What do we know about Mother of the Bride 2?

Not much is known about Mother of the Bride 2 at the moment given that it has not been greenlit. It has a definite ending with Lana and Emma patching up, Emma getting married and Will getting back together with Lana. But if we do get a sequel, we wouldn’t mind something like Daughter of the Bride with it being Lana’s turn to get married and her misadventures as she plans her wedding with Will.

However, nothing is confirmed yet, but we’ll be sure to update this page as soon as any new information comes in.
