29 times as a bridesmaid, finally a bride

DALLAS, TX It wasn't until 39-year-old Julie Caldwell, who lives in Ennis, was moments away from the church for her own wedding that it sank in that she was finally the one tying the knot.

A delayed reaction at her December wedding could be forgiven for the woman much more versed in playing the supportive role in the wedding party.

Caldwell did "27 Dresses" a couple better, and her story ended up on the WE television reality show "Girl Meets Gown."

She calls being a bridemaid "my other career."

Rebecca Dolgin with TheKnot.com says most women end up being a bridesmaid about five times.

Caldwell said her vast experience led her to be sure to not be too demanding as a bride with her three bridesmaids -- such as no requests for matching shoes and jewelry.
