Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: a good portion of the cast, but particular mention belongs to Rita.
** SilentSnarker: During Annie’s meltdown at the wedding shower, it’s clear from Rita’s facial expressions that she agrees with everything Annie says.


** "Everyone has the flu."

** "Everyone "I think everybody has the flu."

* FourTemperamentEnsemble
** Becca and Megan (sanguine), Annie (choleric), Helen (phlegmatic), Rita (melancholic), Lillian (eclectic).

Added DiffLines:

** “Don’t you dare ruin that dress!”

Added DiffLines:

* ProperLady: Whitney from Belle en Blanc, right down to the PrimAndProperBun. It only makes the bridesmaids fitting all the more cringeworthy...


** Becca and Megan (optimists)
** Helen (realist)
** Rita (cynic)
** Lillian (apathetic)
** Annie (conflicted)

to:

** Becca and Megan (optimists)
(optimists) “What about a Pixar themed shower?”/“Physically I don’t bloat.”

Added DiffLines:

* FatIdiot: Annie's roommates.


Added DiffLines:

* FiveSecondForeshadowing: Megan burps at the beginning of the fitting scene, and Annie wipes sweat away a little later. Initially, this seems to be Megan's HypocriticalHumour and Annie being put under pressure by Helen...then they ''all'' get food poisoning. (Except Helen, who didn't eat any meat.)

* FourPhilosophyEnsemble:

** Helen (realist)
** Rita (cynic)
** Lillian (apathetic)
** Annie (conflicted)


* BettyAndVeronica: Rhodes (kind, domestic, sweet police officer) is the Betty to Ted's sneery fratboy grown-up, with Annie as the Archie.
* BigFun: Megan, who is always behaving in outlandish, bizarre, and funny ways. Played with in that she seems unaware of how a lot of her behaviour is perceived.



* FreudianTrio: In the platonic love triangle at the centre of the film. Annie is the id, Lillian is the ego, Helen is the superego.



* GenderFlip: Megan is an obvious one of Alan from ''Franchise/TheHangover''.

* TheHecateSisters: Outside of the FreudianTrio of Annie, Lillian, and Helen, the three other bridesmaids form this: Becca is the maiden (of the "naive ditz" variety, Rita is the mother, and Megan is the crone, although Megan takes on the mother's tendency towards plumpness and eccentricity, while Rita is sharper-tongued.

Added DiffLines:

* SourOutsideSadInside: Annie, who is still deeply depressed by the breakdown of her marriage and the loss of her cupcake shop, is ''very'' snarky and rude, even to people who are trying to help her.


-->'''Lillian:''' [[spoiler:You know what? It IS perfectly bleached! And you know how I know? Because I went to the salon with her, and I got ''MY'' asshole bleached! AND I ''LOVE'' MY NEW ASSHOLE!!]]

* BrickJoke: Half-averted. During Annie's meltdown at the bridal shower, she sarcastically asks if Lilian and Helen are going to ride around Paris on bikes with baguettes in the front baskets. A deleted scene found on the DVD and Blu-ray release shows a mortified Annie watching an online video them doing just that.



%%%* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the "Woman who needs to get her life together and does so over the course of the movie" genre

to:

%%%* * {{Deconstruction}}: Of the "Woman who needs to get her life together and does so over the course of the movie" genre genre; try as she might to come out on top, Annie progressively makes things worse.



* OrphanedReference: More like an aborted BrickJoke; during Annie's meltdown at the bridal shower, she sarcastically asks if Lilian and Helen are going to ride around Paris on bikes with baguettes in the front baskets. A deleted scene found on the DVD and Blu-ray release shows a mortified Annie watching an online video them doing just that.

Added DiffLines:

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Rhodes, whose actor was prepared to put on an American accent but everyone liked his native Irish accent too much, and they told him to just use it.

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodLaw: After the main characters' flight to Las Vegas is diverted to Casper, Wyoming, so Annie can be taken off after her inflight antics, nothing else happens. In real life anyone taken off a plane this way is sent the bill for the diversion by the airline, whose landing fees and fuel costs will usually run into five figures. And given that Annie is seen being escorted by two police officers, she'd likely be facing federal charges of interfering with a flight crew as well
