Twenty-Seven Dresses with Katherine Heigl and Princess Bubble

+ enlarge

After serving as a bridesmaid twenty-seven times, a young woman (Heigl) wrestles with the idea of standing by her sister’s side as her sibling marries the man she’s secretly in love with.  O.K., I have only been in seventeen weddings! But I was maid of honor six times and this movie’s concept cracks me up.

My younger sister married a great guy; but I was never in love with him nor did I even know him till she brought him home. So, there are a few differences; but the concept is very familiar. I am sure Heigl’s character would love Princess Bubble!

We have a page in the book where Princess Bubble is ask to be in another wedding and the page reads, “Princess Bubble, Princess Swan, and many other princesses were asked to be bridesmaids in their (the engaged princesses) royal weddings. They (Bubble and Swan) purchased long, colorful bridesmaid’s dresses and dyed satin shoes they were told they would wear again.” I love that!

If you have older single friends and you are getting married—don’t force them to get out their to catch the bouquet! My mother has tried to force me out on the floor many, many times with only the flower girl. Why can’t she understand this is not fun for a forty-one year old single standing next to a six year old with a group watching! Be kind to your single friends. Not only do we make up 51 percent of the population of women; but married women can become single again in an instant. There are no guarantees in life.

This movie looks really cute. Maybe I should pull out an old bridesmaid dress and wear it again, as I was promised, to the theatre to see twenty-seven dresses.
