I finally got the opportunity to watch Always A Bridesmaid on Netflix and I’m a fan!
The script was written by actress Yvette Nicole Brown, who also stars in the Rom-Com as a FEMALE pastor. She spends most of the film counseling Corina James (Javicia Leslie) through her childhood trauma and relationship fears, and she gives the girl some good advice too.
What’s wrong with being scared, scared just means you’re facing something that might change your life.
So Corina’ story:
Corina is that friend in the group who seems to have it all together, but really is just like the rest of us.. trying to figure it out as we go. While her other friends are getting married and having babies, she’s stuck being everyone’s bridesmaid. Deciding to no longer be a lady-in-waiting, she bravely re-enters the dating scene and catches the eye of someone from her college days name Mark (Jordan Calloway).
The two fall in love, Mark pops the question on her birthday, she immediately freezes up and begins to question why he loves her (ya’ll know how we do talk ourselves out of our happy ending).
“Don’t let past hurts cripple your future. Your past hurts or others.”
In the end Corina faces her fears as well as learn to forgive those in her past that jaded her outlook on love, and they get their Happily Ever After!.
