Entrepreneur: Bridesmaid for hire business is booming
Planning a wedding requires a lot of decision making like decorations, food, and the growing guest list.
An entrepreneur from New York suggests you hire her as your maid of honor and forget the stress that comes with making that tough decision.
Jen Glantz spoke to FOX 5 about her 'Brides Maid For Hire’ business.
“It simply started with an ad on Craiglist,” she explained.
Glantz has been a bridesmaid in several weddings and knows that it takes to make the day memorable.
“From the weddings I attended, I noticed no one focused on the bride and her needs,” she explained. "So I decided to post the ad and test the market."
The professional bridesmaid said she has taken part in 30 weddings and already has weddings booked for 2016!
The Supreme Court's decision last week did make gay marriage legal around the nation. Glantz said she has already taken part in same sex marriage ceremonies.
After the decision, she decided to offer discounts for the months of July and August for any same sex couples.
