THE STORY: A little chaos, a lot of comedy, Texas style: an over-the-top wedding, three feuding sisters, and a church full of small-town eccentrics. What could possibly go wrong? In this fast-paced, laugh-out-loud comedy, the Futrelle sisters of Fayro, Texas—Frankie, Twink and their estranged sister, Honey Raye—are thrown together to pull off a family wedding. But all is not going well. Frankie’s older twin daughter is marrying the son of the queen of what passes for high society in Fayro, and Frankie is desperate to make this antebellum-themed wedding an elegant affair. It soon becomes obvious that Fate has other plans, and the chances for this wedding being a success are fading fast. . . .
