I had no idea this job even was a think. But Jen Glantz is a professional bridesmaid. Yes brides pay her to be part of their wedding party. However, she recently got engaged and even thought she has been to hundreds of weddings. She doesn’t want to plan a wedding. So she has created a website and asking strangers to plan everything out for her.
She launched the website Finally the Bride where anyone can vote on every aspect of her wedding – from the size of her budget to the style of her dress.
The site poses multiple-choice questions like “Where should Jen go on her solo bachelorette party” and when voting closes, she adds follow-up questions based on the responses. So far, strangers on the Internet have decided she should only spend between $15,000 and $30,000 on the nuptials, that she can’t elope, and that it’s okay if she doesn’t have an open bar.
Lots of people have told the bride-to-be that she’s crazy for planning her wedding this way, but her fiancé is on board with her plan. Jen says the details aren’t what’s important “if the couple is getting married for the right reasons.”
