A Wedding is a 1978 comedy film directed by Robert Altman, starring Carol Burnett, Lillian Gish, Geraldine Chaplin, Vittorio Gassman, Mia Farrow, Lauren Hutton, Craig Richard Nelson, Pam Dawber, Desi Arnaz, Jr., Paul Dooley, Dennis Christopher, and Howard Duff. The dialogue is humorous, and the story is told in the trademark Altman style, with multiple plots and overlapping dialogue.

The stories unfold in a single day during a lavish wedding that merges a middle-class Southern family with a wealthy Chicago one that has connections to organized crime.
