Dressed to Serve

There are those who love, but for many what they love is the trapping, they seek the buzz, whether it is the drama of constant break-ups and reunions, or the frisson of the unknown in first dates, or the glitz and attention of weddings.

Ah, weddings, they can cost as much as a house.

According to Anslie Meares they are more stressful than any other event in a person's life, but for many they are still THE EVENT.

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

Jane Nichols (Katherine Heigl) fell in love with "making the bride's day" as a child, and by the time this movie opens she has bought her 27th bridesmaid outfit. She has made "always a bridesmaid" into a lifestyle, and while she is busy making other people's days, she is avoiding making her own.

Enter a jaded wedding reporter who decides that an article about the perpetual bridesmaid is his invitation out of the white tulle ghetto.

Jane is the ultimate enabler; she and her single father have created a ego-monster little sister whose self-centredness makes her the ultimate bridezilla.

Will Jane win her special man and have her own special day?

Fun, occasionally witty and not overly sweet.
