‘A Very Merry Bridesmaid’ Was Filmed in Canada

“A Very Merry Bridesmaid” (also known as “Christmas Bridesmaid” while filming) was filmed in British Columbia, Canada.

When David Strasser tweeted about the movie, he tagged the Directors Guild of Canada in his post.

Parmiss Sehat said about the film: “As an adult I was stoked to get to work on this fun Christmas movie😎Buuuuuuut was my inner 12 year old on a TIGHT leash not to freak out about working with a star who was on the show of an entire generation????????? You betchya!”

The movie finished filming in late October. One of the filming locations was the Spruce Collective in Abbotsford, B.C.

The Twitter account SleepyKittyPaw shared that the Spruce Collective was also remade into “Chaucer’s Bookstore” for “A Gift to Remember 2” in 2019.

Although the actors don’t talk much on social media about the filming locations, you can see Vancouver on the trailers behind Patch May in his photo taken during filming below.

May said about the movie, “A crazy Cast & Crew that kept the Christmas Vibes high the entire time! Had a blast and hope you do too watching it 🎅 🎄”

Writer Tracy Andreen called the movie a “reimagining of the classic Sixteen Candles.”

Elena Valdez said she wrote in private for years before this one made production.

Forest Blakk said his Christmas single, “Sing Along with Me,” is part of the movie.
