The story follows Jane Nichols (Heigl), a young woman in love with her boss George, but she [[CanNotSpitItOut does not have the courage to tell him.]] A notorious doormat, she has been a bridesmaid in 27 weddings, usually shouldering much of the responsibility for planning the weddings as well. We're introduced to Jane the same night she meets Kevin Doyle (Marsden), a cynical young man who covers weddings for the local paper (though Jane is unaware of this). He is intrigued by the fact that she seems to be in two different weddings on the same night. Through a bizarre set of circumstances, they share a taxi ride home. Jane accidentally leaves her planner/calendar behind. Kevin finds it and realizes her bridesmaid duties are a regular phenomenon.

Soon after, Jane's spoiled and vain younger sister Tess (played by Malin Akerman), comes home to visit. She [[BoyMeetsGirl meets and falls in love with George,]] despite the fact that they are complete opposites. Tess continually lies to George to convince him that they are soulmates, much to Jane's dismay. Meanwhile, Kevin has been using Jane's calendar to find her and continually hound her for a date. Unfortunately, he has an ulterior motive. He is planning to write a story on the "perpetual bridesmaid", a piece that he believes will further his career.

* {{Mondegreen}}: An excellent lampshading of this occurs after Kevin and Jane get wasted in a bar and both demonstrate that they have no idea what the real lyrics are to "[[Music/EltonJohn Benny and the Jets]]". But that doesn't stop them from singing and dancing to it anyway.
