Children of the Bride is a 1990 American made-for-television drama film directed by Jonathan Sanger and starring Rue McClanahan, Kristy McNichol, Jack Coleman, Anne Bobby, Conor O'Farrell and Patrick Duffy. The film premiered on CBS on October 5, 1990 and was released on DVD in 2003.[1] The film was followed by two sequels: Baby of the Bride (1991) and Mother of the Bride (1993).


Margret Becker (McClanahan) has a big surprise for her now adult children – she is getting re-married – and she also has a second big surprise – her new husband John (Duffy) is young enough to be her son. Although Margret has found new love in her life, the family is in a ruckus. Her children want to help their mother celebrate her new marriage, but instead find themselves wildly uncomfortable with their future step-father and, as the big day approaches, Margret learns that her first chance at a second start may be her children's last straw.
