I’ve always wanted to crash a wedding, but being a “stand-in bridesmaid” for a bunch of folks I don’t know sounds like a close second.
Yes, that is another real profession: Sometimes, there is an uneven number of groomsmen and bridesmaids, friends have a falling out or … well, things just happen.
So, enter this save-it-all guest, who can either pretend to know the bride or just stand and smile in all the pictures. One posting for such a person read:
“So, my fiancé and I are getting married in June. He has 8 groomsmen lined up and I only have one bridesmaid. So, I need some girls who are attractive and around my age to stand up in my wedding. You can be single or taken. It doesn’t matter. … You just have to be hot. But, not hotter then me.”
Plus, the bride usually will provide your dress, along with the usual food, drink and fun of the wedding itself. Getting paid to attend what essentially turns into a party?
Sounds like a dream job to me, Mom.
