Jessica and Carol, two childhood friends, are both engaged to be married. Secretly afraid her fiancÃ© is going to chicken out, Carol is insisting on a double wedding. Jessica is appalled at the idea: she doesn't want to share the happiest day of her life with whining Carol and her womanising boyfriend. Unfortunately for her, she has a very soft heart and is easily persuaded to agree. Then her mother goes ballistic. This is not what she wants for her precious daughter!
Carolâ€™s parents are separated and at loggerheads. Neither wants the other to be there. Who will win that war? Nadine, Carol's younger sister, is wild and disruptive and drinks like a fish â€“ hardly the ideal wedding guest.
Will Carol's family come to blows? Will her fiancÃ© do a runner? Will they make it to the altar? And can Jessica and Carol's friendship survive a Double Wedding?
