Storyline

Another in the long series of "Pete Smith" shorts from M-G-M in which William Newell meets and falls in love with Sally Payne, and begins to budget for their plans to get married. His budget, alas, does not include nor anticipate the plans of Sally and her parents. This short was reissued in June of 1950 to be shown as a trailer with 1950's "Father of the Bride" and some sources think this short was made for that express purpose and date it as a 1950 film. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pete Smith's Wedding Bills was a funny enough short for me
2 October 2013 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Just watched this Pete Smith short on the Strike Up the Band DVD. Pete Smith narrates a tale about a man planning a wedding with his list of items and prices prepared in order to budget for it. But the wife-to-be wants some things on the expensive side-like the ring. I'll stop there and just say that I found the whole thing quite funny with the lines Smith says commenting on the action which is silent except for some sound effects. There's plenty of visual gags to go with those punchlines as well that I laughed at quite a bit. Like that dog with a newspaper in his mouth that keeps popping up. Or some modern kitchen appliances that don't always work well. So on that note, I recommend Wedding Bills.
