Crew/Equipment Visible
The crew are clearly reflected in the glass doors behind Emma when she crashes Liv's wedding.

Liv's dress has a bow on it, after Emma and Fletch break up it is gone.

Nearing the end of the movie when Emma is waiting in the room with Deb, the position of her veil changes a few times.

When Liv first finds the Tiffany's ring box, the ribbon is completely covering the box, which you can see how she tries to open it, Liv is untying the ribbon. However, when Nate opens the box and hands it to his co-worker, the ribbon is still tied because the ribbon is split, so the box can be opened without untying the ribbon.

When Liv comes into the office to ask her fiancé to marry her, the sides of her hair switch from soaking wet to dry.

In the scene with Emma and Deb at the wedding planner's office, Deb goes from drinking from a wide wine glass in one shot to a narrow champagne glass in another.

In the engagement party scene, one of the guests takes a long sip of her drink, and when the shot cuts back to her next, the drink is full again.

When Deb is drinking wine at Marion's office, the bottle changes between shots.

When Liv gets pulled on stage at the party she is wearing a tiara, but when she starts dancing with Emma, the tiara is missing.

When the girls are about to toast to Liv's engagement at the bar: Everyone but Emma is holding a full shot glass, when the scene changes, Liv and the one friend are holding a half full shot glass, while Marissa changes to a wine glass while they are still in the middle of the toast.

When Emma is in the room with Deb, just as Emma is about to start shouting at Deb - Deb changes from holding her champagne, then her makeup, then her champagne again and then her makeup again.

During the bridal shower scene, the amount of orange juice changes between shots.

After the fight, Emma's hair goes from being really messy, to slightly messy, to really messy, to perfect before they walk down the aisle, to slightly messy walking down the aisle.

Crew/Equipment Visible
In one of the scenes in the wedding planner's office, the boom mic is visible in the top of the frame.

Crew/Equipment Visible
In the scene where Marissa is hearing of Liv's engagement and grabbing pills from her medicine cabinet, the boom mic is seen slowly descending over her head.
During a scene in which their characters slap each other (Kate Hudson) accidentally hit (Anne Hathaway) straight in the face very hard. Despite that Hudson hit her with a big diamond ring on her finger, she kept shooting the scenes in pain. Hudson later found Hathaway sitting in a chair with a ice-pack on her face.

The script was finished just before the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike.

Originally, the film was conceived as a teen comedy. Emma Roberts was set to star as Liv and Nikki Reed as Emma. It was later envisioned as a comedy for young adults with Kate Hudson as Liv and Anne Hathaway as Emma.

During the reception, there is a shot involving a complicated series of dance steps in front of the camera. After many failed attempts, a dance instructor who happened to be an extra asked to teach the actors how to perform the maneuver correctly.

Kate Hudson's first producing credit on a feature film.

Several wives and girlfriends of current Red Sox players were extras in the wedding shower scene.
