"Who are you and how did you get in this wedding??"

"I'm a bridesmaid...and I'm a bridesmaid."

I could not read the story. I don't understand the headline. Was she paid? You are usually asked to be a bridesmaid. Then you have to shell out money for the ugliest dress the bride can find.

I've been a groomsman in a few green card weddings to lend some credibility. Most were for friends, but I admit to proffering services for $100, an open bar, and partying with Eastern Europeans.

She's a wedding planner that calls herself a "Bridesmaid/Wedding Planner" to give it that intimate touch. It's bullshiat.

The article doesn't make it clear but she's clearly a 'day of wedding coordinator.'

The 2nd article (a link embedded in this article) makes it clearer:

The work rarely involves accompanying a bride down the aisle or planning a bachelorette party

Calling herself a bridesmaid for hire is pure marketing.  It lets her sell herself as a friend, an ally.  Which is smart.  I did something similar though not nearly as brazen or confusing.

Professional bridesmaids are a thing and have been for a long time.  Just ask the cast of "Ruddigore".

Coming this fall to Showtime, she's a travelling, for hire bridesmaid who moonlights as a hitwoman, but juggling two jobs and a dating life is harder than it looks. The Professional, only on Showtime.

Username checks... to hell with it, that was too obvious. Just get up and sing us Paradise by the Dashboard Lights; you marital minstrel; the caterers forgot the meatloaf.

/Completely teasing.

Well that is just stupid. They are two totally different things. Don't lie for the sake of a cute headline.

Ehh, it's not too stupid. People have fewer friends today, and she probably has a load of dresses to rent out. Dresses that are just not ugly enough she'll wear them.

Was she a legitimate bridesmaid, or was she the bride's half of the required number of witnesses to sign off on a marriage license? Thats a big difference. I'm almost ready to pay two strangers to meet me at my lawyers office to help sign my will because getting two people not related to me or not close enough to me to have a stake in my finances  to meet me in a specific place and time for something that doesn't involve food or booze during COVID is damn impossible.

People hire other people to cry at funerals, sit next to them at parties, fill seats at awards shows, pretend to be their significant others, stand in the background of movie shoots and wave banners at protests. Its reasonable that the woman in TFA could make money off this.

FTA: "Jen was too tired for her usual first-date performance. Instead, she came as herself. "

So she put on an act to attract people which never worked out, and when she finally decides to be herself, it works out....

Any chance anyone wants to rent a "drunk obnoxious middle-aged uncle with boundary issues" to keep the bridesmaids on their toes?

I can see the appeal though. So many bridezillas treat their bridesmaids, particularly MOH, as wedding planners/labor, destroying friendships. Paying someone to serve those roles, (bridesmaid/wedding planner) would make sense to some people. Not sure I would pay someone to be a bridesmaid but definitely would pay for a wedding planner.
