During a lavish wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, determined to avoid the festivities below at all costs. Though their dresses match, their personalities are vastly different. As the afternoon wears on, these five unique women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, and touching celebration of female friendship. From the eclectic comedic mind of Alan Ball who authored American Beauty, and HBO's “True Blood” and “Six Feet Under." Watch out flower girls...her come the bridesmaids!
