What's more your style—a beautiful, royal wedding in the Scottish country or a chic, simple affair atop a Manhattan building? I won't tell you which is which, but both take place in the new movie Made of Honor.

After being friends for years, Hannah (Michelle Monaghan) finally gets engaged to another man right when her best friend Tom (Patrick Dempsey) realizes he has feelings for her. Hannah asks Tom to be her maid of honor, and convinced by his guy friends that it would be the perfect way to show her how much he cares, Tom accepts. With that he takes on all the standard duties—planning the shower, bonding with the bridesmaids, even picking out the wedding night attire. "It was a lot of fun," says Dempsey of playing a maid of honor. "It was definitely a learning experience to see the other side's perspective. I had no idea how much was really involved."

The wedding in Scotland was extravagant and full of culture and tradition, while the Manhattan wedding was more casual, but still glamorous with modern details. See which one Hannah goes through with in the movie, in theatres everywhere today. —Cari Wolfert
