This drama stars Rosemarie DeWitt and Anne Hathaway as sisters with a strained relationship. Hathaway plays Kym, the younger, attention-seeking sister of the bride. Just out of rehab, Kym is snarky, rude and distant with family -- especially her sister, Rachel, who's days away from walking down the aisle. Not surprisingly, Kym isn't asked to be maid of honor, and the role is given to Rachel's best friend instead. Kym is hurt by this revelation, pushing the two sisters even further apart.

Whether you're a sister or close friend of the bride, try to understand if you're not selected to be her maid of honor. It's often difficult to choose someone for this role, so respect the bride's decision. And if the two of you have struggled in the past, a wedding might be the perfect time to mend your troubled relationship.
