This UK woman charges up to 5000 pounds per wedding to help brides organise their dream day.
It’s not a career path that most of us have considered, but for UK woman Tiffany Wright, being a ‘professional bridesmaid’ has provided to be a lucrative choice. After attending seventeen weddings in just two years, Tiffany saw just how stressful planning a wedding can be and decided to offer her expertise and guidance to brides-to-be as a bridesmaid for hire.
Keep Things Running Smoothly
Tiffany’s role is not what you’d expect of a traditional bridesmaid. While she has been an ‘actual bridesmaid’ seven times, she has taken on a more personal assistant type role in over 150 other weddings, often for people she has never met before. “Sometimes not having a personal or family connection to someone can be a bonus with some tasks,” she said. “For example, one bride’s parents had divorced and her dad wanted to bring his new girlfriend, who was a similar age to her, with him to the wedding and it was my job to break the news to her mum.” We think that Tiffany’s price tag suddenly seems a lot more reasonable when she’s thrown into the middle of family drama like that…
Even though most bride’s have been a pleasure to work with, Tiffany admits there have been a few memorable requests. On one occasion, she was asked to dye her hair to match the other bridesmaids, and in preparation for another ceremony, the bride requested that she motivate the rest of the wedding party to lose weight. She’s also been sent overseas as a bachelor party spy and tried on countless dresses in every shape and colour imaginable. Tiffany says she wouldn’t have it any other way. “It can be a difficult job at times, but it’s unique and I couldn’t wish for a better career – despite the bridezillas!”
