In the tradition of Sloane Crosley, Mindy Kaling, and Katie
Heaney, a hilarious and insightful memoir about one New
York City Millennialâ€™s journey to find herself, her dream
career, and true love, all while juggling a truly unique job
as the world's only professional bridesmaid.
After moving to New York City in her mid - twenties to
pursue her dream of writingâ€”and not living on the â€śUpper
East Sideâ€ť of her parentsâ€™ house anymoreâ€”Jen Glantz
looked forward to a future of happy hours and Sunday
brunches with her besties.
What she got instead were a string of phone calls that
began with, "Jen, I have something exciting to tell you!"
and ended with, "I'd be honored if you would be my
bridesmaid." At first she was delighted, but it wasnâ€™t long
before she realized two things: all of her assets were tied
up in bridesmaid dresses, and she herself was no closer
to finding The One. She couldn't do much about the
second thing (though her mother would beg to differ),
but she could about the first.
One (slightly tipsy) night, Jen posted an ad on Craigslist
advertising her services as a professional bridesmaid.
When she woke up the next morning, it had gone viral.
What began as a half - joke suddenly turned into a
lifetime of adventure for Jenâ€“and more insight into the
meaning of love than she was getting from OKCupidâ€”as
she walked down the aisle at stranger after stranger's
Fresh, funny, and surprisingly sweet, Always a
Bridesmaid (For Hire) is an entertaining reminder that
even if you don't have everything together, you can still
be a total bossâ€”or, at the very least, a BFF to another
girl in need.
