The film earned $2,707,000 in the US and Canada and $1,059,000 elsewhere.[1][2]

On June 4, 1948, The New York Times' Bosley Crowther wrote: “For a movie with as inauspicious a title as The Bride Goes Wild… this patchwork of sentiment and slapstick is a surprisingly genial little show. And if you'll take it as nonsense entertainment, it will give you a pretty good time. In the first place, that title means nothing—absolutely nothing at all. More appropriate to the evident activities would be The Picture Goes Wild. For the most salient aspect of the story is its positive progression from a point of comparative intelligence at the beginning to reckless disorder at the end.”[3]

Josephine O'Neill praised the film in her July 18, 1949, review in the Daily Telegraph: “MGM's moonstruck pair, Van Johnson and June Allyson, become surprisingly engaging comedians in this frivolous comedy. They have the fillip of an original story… Norman Taurog, who knows his comedy and his kids, lays on the laughter freely. Sometimes his slapstick is enormously successful — as when the orphanage kids submit Van and his harassed publisher (Hume Cronyn) to an Indian raid. Sometimes, as in the ants-at-the-wedding, it is Mack Sennett. The result is generally fetching, with livelier dialogue than usual; and one of the prettiest tipsy scenes from Miss Allyson that you could imagine. To sum up: Enjoyment.[4]


The Bride Goes Wild was presented on the Stars in the Air radio program on February 28, 1952. Dick Powell and June Allyson starred in the 30-minute adaptation.[5]

Turner Classic Movies presented The Bride Goes Wild on October 7, 2015 in commemoration of what would have been Allyson's 98th birthday.[citation needed]
