To quote Feministing:

Our Family Wedding passes the Bechdel test, but only if you consider "talking about a man" to be different than "talking about married life." While shopping for wedding dresses, Lucia tries to find a bridesmaid's dress for a reluctant Isabella, and demands to know why her sister seems so indifferent about the marriage. Isabella reminds Lucia that years ago, they had made a pact, promising each other that they would not marry young like so many of their girlfriends, ending up "always pregnant or getting pregnant, never thinking of anything better." "I fell in love," Lucia tells her sister. "It changes things. But it doesn't change who you are."
