A Dallas pharmacist walked down the aisle 29 times as a bridesmaid before finally becoming a bride.
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 bridesmaid “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.
