Audiences have cried with laughter at this comedy set in the home of the bride in Knoxville,  
Tennessee during the newly married couples overdone wedding reception.  The five bridesmaids have found refuge in the room of Meredith, the sister of the bride.  The women come to realize, among other things, that they, despite their differences, have more in common with each other than any of them do with the bride.  As the afternoon wears on, five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the woman's spirit.
