What happens when 4 high school pals vow to be each others’ bridesmaids? Picture a hostess with an axe, one groom too many, bridesmaid in a cast, and an ill-timed robbery: nothing keeps these gals from getting to the ceremony on time! Always A Bridesmaid unveils behind-the-scenes shenanigans of weddings in a small southern town. Add in a genteel Virginia hostess and a spirited daughter who has seen it all, and you have the perfect marriage of characters in this warm hearted comedy.
Director Hope Owen has assembled a wedding party guaranteed to have you rolling in the aisles. Deb Kolb as hostess Sedalia and Mercedes Moncivais as Kari meet unexpected challenges in unexpected ways. Joni Rosebrock plays the romantic, yet tone deaf Libby Ruth. Flashy flirt Monette is played with a wink by Crystal Brooks. Tree hugging Charlie (Corrie Ehrhart) brings a Birkenstock sensibility to the group. Shiloh Marie Smith- Wittwer, Connecticut transplant Deedra, carries a life changing secret. When these steel magnolias engage in nuptials, anything can happen.
