If you don't have any close friends or friends capable of being a good bridesmaid, meet Jen Glantz aka @BridesmaidForHire! Jen is a “professional bridesmaid” who works as the "world's first bridesmaid for hire."
Yes, strangers hire and pay her to be in their wedding and act as a best friend for the weekend.
Jen shared with Ryan Seacrest she started the business eight years ago when all her friends were asking her to be their bridesmaid. Then, when two distant friends asked her to be their bridesmaid and she asked why, they said it was because she's a pro bridesmaid.
Jen then thought of the new career and posted to Craigslist where within 48 hours, she got 300 responses!
Listen back to hear more of her story, including how some brides don't even tell their grooms the truth!
