Wedding Planning

Need a Maid of Honor? You Can Hire One.

When planning a wedding, many ask themselves whether or not they’ll include bridesmaids and groomsmen in their ceremony. If you have supportive friends and family, then your decision becomes an easier one. But what if you or your partner are lacking a trustworthy social circle? Well that’s where bridesmaids and groomsmen for hire come in. Here’s why you might want to consider hiring a best friend for your big day.

Why on earth would you want to hire a professional bridesmaid or groomsman? 

Hiring a bridesmaid or groomsman for your special day is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact it’s become increasingly popular to do so. And with so much money pumped into the multi-billion dollar wedding industry daily, professional bridesmaid and groomsman businesses are booming. If hiring help for your wedding day sounds like something you’d be interested in, take a look at these pros and cons.

The Pros

  • Unlike friends and family, a professional bridesmaid or groomsman are tasked with being your wedding planning support team.

  • Since this is ultimately a job for them, they have to put up with your not-so-great moments, whereas people you know personally might not be well-equipped to see you this way.

  • Additional services can be added to your bridesmaid or groomsman package, such as bridal and bachelor party planning. 

  • A professional bridesmaid and groomsman have seen it all and can give you insight on what to expect or how to make your wedding stand out.

  • Can make a lifelong friend that you can keep in touch with long after your wedding.

The Cons

  • Services can be pricey if you have not accounted for a professional bridesmaid or groomsman in your wedding budget.

  • If you want to conceal that you hired a bridesmaid or groomsman, you’ll need to memorize a backstory for your relationship and have a convincing poker face.

  • If you’re unable to form a bond with your hired bridesmaid or groomsman, you’ll have to deal with the fact that there will be an acquaintance in your wedding photos and videos. 

Hiring a professional bridesmaid or groomsman is a little unconventional, but it’s not as strange as it sounds. If you’ve been doing the wedding planning yourself, an experienced bridesmaid or groomsman may be a god-send. Lighten your load with these masterful wedding goers.
