This 1940 classic has arguably the greatest cast ever assembled for a wedding flick: James Stewart, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant. The movie begins as Tracy, a socialite played by Hepburn, is newly engaged after divorcing her ex-husband Dexter, played by Grant. Through a series of plot twists -- spoiler alert! -- the movie ends with Tracy calling off the wedding to her fiancé, along with a last-minute surprise: Dexter offers his former bride a second marriage proposal.

It might be rare, but some couples divorce and later get back together. Depending on the situation, friends may encourage or oppose these reconciliations. As a bridesmaid, your feelings are important, and you shouldn't feel pressured to stand up for anyone -- especially if you don't believe in the union.
