On the day of her wedding a young woman's fiancé doesn't show up, sleeping off the results of the previous night's wild bachelor party. Miffed, the woman decides to go ahead with the wedding anyway to teach her fiancé a lesson, so she calls her lawyer, Henry, and has him stand in for her missing groom. She intends to divorce her new "husband" at the first opportunity, but Henry--who has been in love with her for a long time--is determined to win his "wife's" hand. Written by
A stood-up bride uses her lawyer as a stand-in groom.
When Eric, in his usual irresponsible manner, fails to show at his own wedding because he's sleeping off his bachelor party, his bride Sheila decides to go through with the wedding anyway. All she needs is another groom, and on short notice. She calls her lawyer, Henry, into the dressing chamber and hastily proposes to him.
As they leave for their honeymoon, however, Henry finds out that Sheila is simply trying to teach her fiancé a lesson, and intends to get a divorce as soon as the honeymoon is over. Henry, who has a long standing crush on Sheila, is visibly disappointed, and cleverly schemes to keep her.
The plot is amusing, and the characters, while somewhat cookie-cutter, are lovable. If you're a fan of vintage romantic comedies, I think you'll find it worth watching.
