Congratulations! Your close friend is getting married, and you’ve been asked to join the bridal party. But being a bridesmaid costs a lot of time, money, and emotional labor. It’s actually a job, and that’s where Jen Glantz, the professional “Bridesmaid For Hire,” comes in. After helping her BFFs at countless weddings, she put up a Craigslist ad offering bridesmaid services. The response was overwhelming. As a pro bridesmaid, she plans bachelorette parties, delivers maid-of-honor speeches, supports the happy couple on their big day, and keeps the peace when drama goes down. She built her business while working a full-time job and masterfully balanced both workloads for years. Finally, a layoff gave her the guts to turn her side hustle into a career, and now over 100,000 people want to follow in her footsteps.
