People pay me to be their bridesmaid
Whether it’s a family member or a longtime friend, being asked to be a bridesmaid on someone’s big day is always a great honor.
Corn Jen glantz had the opportunity a few times more than most, because, well, being a bridesmaid is her job.
The US-based woman revealed on her TikTok page that she has been a professional bridesmaid for seven years.
This means brides pay her to walk down the aisle and celebrate their big day, while pretending to be their friend.
But it “happened by accident” according to Jen, who now has her own business and a collection of hundreds of evening dresses.

In a clip, she revealed: “When I was in my 20s all my friends got married – I was still the bridesmaid.
“Then it became a habit. Everyone I knew would ask me. My roommate at the time said to me ‘you’ve become a professional bridesmaid.'”
Fairly quickly, Jen offered her services online and, to her surprise, received “hundreds of emails from people” who wanted to hire her.
Understandably, people wondered what exactly her job was, with Jen answering some frequently asked questions online.
In response to the question “Do you pretend to be the bride’s friend,” Jen revealed that she does, and usually even the husband doesn’t know she’s been hired.
In fact, Jen said husbands most of the time think she’s an old friend they’ve never met.
If you’re a fan of weddings, the job is ideal, and the best part is definitely the collection of dresses you end up hosting.
The professional bridesmaid said she has “hundreds of dresses” thanks to her seven-year career as a hired bridesmaid, and people envy her work.
“PLS, I want to learn how to be a professional bridesmaid,” commented one person on Jen’s TikTok.
And another added: “How did you get started? I would love to do that.”
Additionally, she revealed that the client pays for the dress as it is in the contract when she is hired – but that also means she can choose it.
Jen claims to be the “world’s first bridesmaid to hire,” but something tells us there will be more to come.
Meanwhile, in Australia, people hire professional bridesmaid Kerstyn Walsh to follow them down the aisle, but there’s one thing I won’t do.
And this bride was horrified by the “disrespectful” bridesmaids showing up at the wedding in bright purple Crocs stuffing.
