Tanya Harsin, a gorgeous barista working at an espresso stand saves her customer, a Turkish consul from a team of assassins, by karate chopping her way through the attackers. When the bad guys are all in subdued agony, it is apparent she is an undercover body guard.
Tanya is one of the top agents at the security firm run by James Chesterton. Henry, Tanya’s colleague at the agency, loves to give Tanya a good natured hard time over her tough girl act. They meet Wes Thompson, a Texas tycoon, looking to hire security for his beautiful, spoiled daughter, Daisy. She has received numerous threatening letters ever since she got engaged. The assignment is to remain discreet, so Chesterton requests a reluctant Tanya to go undercover as a bridesmaid, with the support team as caterers. Tanya’s reluctance is revealed in a voicemail her mother left her, reassuring her she is better off without her ex-fiancé who jilted her at the alter. Henry convinces the bitter Tanya to accept the asfsignment for the chance of making partner.
When the shuttle arrives at the Thompson estate, Tanya meets some of the weddings attendees: the personable, Aunt Helen, the playboy, Cousin Eldridge, the ex-business partner, Mr. Bosworth, and the Italian wedding planner, Carlo Santi. Chip, Daisy’s handsome, overly self-assured fiancé, arrives, along with a pack of giggly, squealing bridesmaids – Sally, Kimmy, and Besty, who seems more inquisitive than the rest on Tanya’s history with Daisy. Within moments, Chip’s friends arrive – Vince, Rich, Jake, and Robbie, all in their early 20s, frat boy types. Tanya analyzes every guest; anyone is suspect at this point. She is particularly curious of Jake for more reasons than one: the security team cannot verify his student status at Vanderbilt and she feels drawn to this man.
Tanya runs through the guest list, a who’s who of millionaires’ kids, with Henry, and learns that Betsy’s family is like American royalty – presidential relatives, ownership in companies that make everything from watches to wedding cakes. Their conversation is interrupted by Daisy’s pager alarm going off, and Tanya bolts at lightning speed, only to find Daisy panicking because she saw a spider in her room. Just then, Chip’s mother Constance, a high maintenance socialite with an attitude, approaches the girls, drink in hand. Daisy tells Tanya she believes Constance doesn’t think she is good enough for her son.
Jake approaches Tanya, there seems to be definite chemistry between the two, which Aunt Helen doesn’t hesitate to point out. That night, Tanya and Henry patrol the estate, and Henry informs her Cousin Eldridge’s inheritance can decrease if Daisy and Chip have kids, a good reason for him to not want to see this marriage occur. But there are also other suspects: Constance, the cold mother-in-law, Mr. Bosworth, who is being forced out of a business deal, and Aunt Helen, who’s using the family’s depleting scholarship fund to buy jewelry.
Tanya and Henry spot a dark clothed figure lurking by an open window at the Thompson house. Tanya runs for the intruder, but clashes with Chip instead. He claims he and the maid were searching for his lost contact lenses, but Tanya could’ve sworn she saw him making out with the maid. After the awkward encounter, Tanya meets with Daisy, who wants her to make more of an effort to fit in with the girls, saying the role of bridesmaid is sacred duty.
The next day, Tanya participates in touch football and skeet shooting, and witnesses Bosworth’s increasing tension with Thompson, and Constance’s strange habit of carrying scissors and clippings in her purse.
The guests head to the bar that night where Robbie beelines for Tanya, but Jake cuts in before things get too uncomfortable. She attempts to learn more about Jake’s law student status, but he brushes it off and reveals to her his disdain for being judged by his net worth, pointing out Betsy as the kind of girl who only saw someone for their money. Betsy apparently dated Chip before Daisy, but she originally never gave Chip the time of day until she knew what he was worth. With Daisy pressuring Tanya to fit in, she agrees to dance with Jake, and the chemistry between the two is obvious. Tanya comments about Chip’s wondering eye, but Jake reassures her Chip is truly in love with Daisy.
Tanya follows up with Henry, who warns her not to let her feelings cloud her judgment, and informs her surveillance tape revealed a harmless, drunken Bosworth. She leaves to patrol the grounds, and is approached by Jake just when Daisy’s alarm goes off again. Once again, Jake sees Tanya mysteriously rush off, only for her to find Daisy perfectly save, making out with Chip. Tanya fumbles for an excuse to take Daisy away – citing a couple shouldn’t get too physical before the wedding. Chip is utterly confused, and the girls share a good laugh at what happened, bonding for the first time. She reveals to Daisy her horrible wedding past.
Tanya makes potpourri sachets with Daisy, who tells her to find it in her heart to forgive. Henry and Thompson interrupt and reveal the gardener found another threatening note. Thompson wants to cancel all activities from now until the wedding, but Daisy refuses.
The bridesmaids celebrate the bachelorette party at a karaoke nightclub. Tanya encourages Daisy to enjoy the party and get on stage with the cowboy performer, but then panics as she mistakes the performer’s prop gun for the real deal, and attempts to save Daisy from him, in front of everyone. Later, at the hayride, Jake charms Tanya some more. When everyone arrives back from the hayride, Aunt Helen approaches Daisy with a package delivered by a mystery man on motorcycle; it contains another threatening note, so Tanya chases after the delivery man. Before he can get away, she knocks him over with a golf club and sees Carlo, the wedding planner, but even though he is caught, the team still needs to find out the true mastermind behind the threats.
On the wedding day, Chip admits to Tanya his awareness of his own wandering eye, but promises her that he truly loves Daisy and would never betray her. Later, Jake comes up and pulls Tanya away from Daisy’s side to confess he isn’t a law student. Despite his acceptance to
law school, he explains to her his desire to pay his own way, and so for now, works at a grocery store. Their mutual feelings are obvious, and he and Tanya kiss, but they are quickly interrupted by gun shots.
By the time Tanya gets back to the wedding, she can’t pinpoint the shooter and takes the heat from Thompson for stepping away from Daisy’s side. When Jake learns Tanya’s role as Daisy’s bodyguard, he thinks she never liked him, only feigning interest to gather information. Feeling betrayed, he says goodbye to her. Thompson demands to know what intel Tanya has on the guests. As she recounts all she has learned since day one, Daisy overhears her claiming to see Chip make out with the maid. Feeling betrayed and hurt as well, Daisy walks off, and Thompson fires Tanya.
In the van, Henry shuffles through the surveillance tapes, as Tanya sits glumly in the chair, and reveals Chip wasn’t lying about losing his contact lenses. Chesterton asks Tanya to take a vacation while he figures out what to do about her failed assignment.
On her “vacation,” Tanya hits the agency’s gym, where Jake shows up to talk to her, since she hasn’t returned any of his or Daisy’s calls. Jake admits he shouldn’t have said those things to Tanya, he understands she was doing his job, and wants her to be his date for the wedding. He encourages Tanya to make things right and be there for Daisy as well, since they are friends after all. Jake hands over a potpourri sachet, a message from Daisy reminding her to forgive.
Tanya visits one of the new restaurants Kevin owns and hands over a congratulatory gift to him. As Kevin apologizes for their history, Tanya lets him know she forgives him, and heads off to Daisy’s wedding.
Tanya, a bridesmaid once again, notices Betsy looking particularly irritated during the vows exchange. Tanya realizes Betsy is the perpetrator – Betsy is fumbling with her gloves, and a metal glint is coming from the wedding cake. Tanya warns the guests to take cover as Betsy runs off. Daisy, remembering the advice from Tanya to be more assertive, takes a nearby rope from the arbor and lassos Betsy, and delivers an impressive punch.
After the ceremony, Henry follows up with Tanya on all their original suspects, who turn out innocent. Betsy had Carlo think she was in love with him, when she solely wanted vengeance out of bitterness over how family’s lost wealth due to a bad investment in a Thompson business and jealousy over Daisy marrying into Chip’s rich family. Tanya shares with Henry some news as well – Chesterton made Tanya partner, and she is going to take a much needed vacation. She hops in the car with Jake and they wave to Henry as they drive off into the distance.
