The tiniest of details have already been planned, and now as adult women of 26, they both have steady men Fletcher (Chris Pratt), and Nate (Bryan Greenberg), ready to pop the question. With rings in tow, the girls set off to meet with Marion St. Claire (Candice Bergen), the ultimate bridal planner at New York's Plaza Hotel. Marion only has a few dates left and the girls make their choices for their special days. A mix up with reservations leave both brides scheduled the same date. Now, all bets are off as the girls will do anything to each other to insure their personal plans are not be altered. But with no one willing to cancel their plans, all of their relationships are put to the test.
