To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the release of perpetual bridesmaid rom-com 27 Dresses, the movie’s star Katherine Heigl shared a nostalgic post on Instagram.

Alongside a gallery of photos of her wearing some of the title’s bridesmaid’s dresses, the actress wrote a lengthy caption reminiscing about the experience of shooting the film and reflecting on how much has changed in her life since then.

“It has been 10 whole years since I had the privilege of getting to be apart of one of my favorite projects 27 dresses!” she wrote. “At the time I was a 28-year-old gal planning her own wedding and wearing Invisalign to correct my snaggle teeth for the wedding pics. Now I am a 39-year-old mother of three celebrating 10 years of marriage and letting my snaggle teeth make a comeback cause I ultimately liked them better that way. Good lord a hell of a lot can happen in 10 years! Happy 10 years 27 dresses! I had the time of my life being a part of your good old fashioned romantic frivolity and am so grateful to have had the experience, made the friends and kept the memories! #27dresses”

The fun flick sees Heigl’s character, Jane Nichols, serve as the ultimate bridesmaid on 27 occasions before meeting writer Kevin Doyle (James Marsden) and finally donning dress number 28: a white one at her own wedding.
