10 Movies to Get You in the Mood for Your Bridesmaid Duties

"My Best Friend's Wedding"

Julia Roberts and Dermot Mulroney star in this romantic comedy as friends Julianne Potter and Michael O'Neal, former college sweethearts who agree to get married if they're still single at age 28. When O'Neal calls Potter to announce his engagement to another woman, Potter becomes determined to sabotage the wedding at any cost -- a task that becomes significantly more challenging when the bride asks her to be her maid of honor.

A wedding can be a harsh reminder of certain bridesmaids' "plus one" statuses, and even if you're not trying to steal the groom, jealousy might be a feeling that's all too familiar. While it's OK to distance yourself for a short time if you're feeling low, it's never OK to wreck someone's wedding, no matter how tough a situation may be to endure.
