Featured Odd Job: Stand-In Bridesmaid

When a bride doesn't have enough girlfriends (or 'girlfriends' who bail on them), they can count on a Stand-In Bridesmaid. So far it's more gestational than anything, but more and more Bridal companies have strongly considered making this an actual on-call business, one that could certainly make some money. In February, for example, I came across this craigslist ad:

So, my fiancee and I are getting married in June. He has 8 groomsmen lined up and I only have one bridesmaid. So, I need some girls who are attractive and around my age to stand up in my wedding. You can be single or taken. It doesn't just have to be hot. But, not hotter then me. Email me for more information. The wedding will be in Madison and you won't have to pay for a thing.

Hope to hear from you!

One would assume being a Stand-In Bridesmaid requires a) you being attractive, b) you being personable, and c) you being an decent actor. But beggars can't be chosers; Personally, I think this job would be a great fit for a) a con artist going legit, b) a struggling thespian, or c) anyone reading this blog.
