Bridesmaids Movie Trailer

5 Real-Life Bridesmaid Truths From the Bridesmaids Trailer

Starring Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph, Judd Apatow and Paul Feig's upcoming movie Bridesmaids is trying hard to be the female version of The Hangover. The just-released trailer (above) gives us a peek at the over-the-top Vegas bachelorette party, but it also features some wedding planning challenges — practically clichés by now — that any former bridesmaid can recognize. Here are five I spotted:

  1. The Bride Says It Will Be Easy: After the bride assures Kristen Wiig's character that all she'll have to do is plan the bachelorette party, Kristen searches the Internet and finds a more realistic, and never-ending, list of bridesmaid duties.
  2. You Have to Ditch Your Real-Life Budget: Judging by her broken-down car, Kristen's character doesn't live an extravagant lifestyle. But she still has to go on a trip to Vegas and fancy parties in anticipation of the wedding.
  3. It Can Be Awkward When You're Single: When you're helping plan a wedding, it seems people can't stop talking about love, marriage, and why you're still single. That's why you should hook up with a Jon Hamm type and try to get him to come as your date! That'll surely shut 'em up.
  4. The Bridal Party Can Be a Motley Crew: You can choose your friends, but you can't choose who they chose for their bridal party. There's a good chance that your new bridesmaid buddies have very different ideas about bachelorette parties or how much should be spent. Be prepared to be diplomatic.
  5. It's Fun! Despite the humorous obstacles Kristen Wiig must navigate, you can tell this set of bridesmaids are going to enjoy themselves. And that's usually how it works out when you're helping a close friend or family member celebrate an important life moment.
