Four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings no matter what. More than 30 years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making the "long walk" for each other. Forsaking all others, in sickness and in health, they repeatedly struggle to stage the perfect weddings in spite of fist fights at the altar, run-away brides and the unfortunate release of a flock of white doves on the first day of hunting season. If you've ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch the bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying, "I do," or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, this is the comedy for you and your dearly beloved.

Besides adding some additional humor, she acts as a narrator of sorts, tying the scenes together, and eventually appears in the final scene as the cycle of marriage continues into the next generation.
