Further details

The girls are in a frenzy when Janet's Dad gives her some cash to spend on a wedding dress. They abandon their blokes for a day of girly shopping.

Janet feels totally upstaged when Louise tries on a stunning wedding dress, and physically rips it off her. Egged on by the snooty shop assistant, Janet gives Donna and Louise a pair of utterly hideous bridesmaids' dresses to try on.

The bridesmaids have a cunning plan that will mean they can't wear the dresses - they ruin them, then claim that they're faulty. The shop assistant turns nasty and insists that Janet pay for the bridesmaid's dresses anyway - leaving her just £200 for her wedding dress.

Louise remembers the gorgeous dress which Janet ripped when the assistant wasn't around. They haggle down the price, and Janet gets her dream dress after all. Meanwhile, the abandoned boys are seriously confused by the prospect of free beer.
