Emily Blunt plays a bride-to-be with a long and bumpy build-up to her big day, in new comedy The Five-Year Engagement. The star’s own wedding preparations, however, couldn’t have been more different.

“I didn’t want to have a big wedding. I wanted to keep it really laid-back,” she said.
“I’m quite decisive,” Emily adds. “I’m not one of those people who says, ‘Oh, what about this, what about that?’ I’m just like, ‘That’ll do, that’ll do, that’ll do’, because I just think it’s the day that’s special, not all of the stuff that comes with it.”
