Professional Bridesmaid Jen Glantz Publishing Memoir

Professional Bridesmaid Is Telling All in Her Memoir, Always a Bridesmaid (For Hire)

The duties of a bridesmaid are no piece of (wedding) cake — in fact, the job is sort of stressful AF. Which is why it's pretty damn cool that one creative mind launched an impressive career as a professional bridesmaid . . . because let's face it, some women would pay for one instead of hassling their younger sisters to take on the responsibility.

And now Jen Glantz, founder of Bridesmaid for Hire, is publishing a memoir, after authoring the book All My Friends Are Engaged.

The memoir — published by Atria and slated to come out Summer 2016 — will explore Jen's abundant wedding adventures as well as her own experiences as a 20-something woman dating in New York City.


"Always a Bridesmaid (For Hire), at first, tells a story many have experienced themselves — what it's like to be a perpetual bridesmaid while also becoming a perpetual first-dater," Jen said. "But it also goes on to open up the never-before-seen world of what it's like to befriend someone who needs you the most, during the most intimate moment of her life, for a paycheck."

Jen's line of work began when two of her closest friends asked her to be a bridesmaid within 48 hours.

"That's how I decided to start my professional bridesmaid business, which helps brides out virtually and even in person on one of the most important days of their lives," she said.

We're particularly looking forward to the story of the time when Jen was the officiant, maid of honor, and only guest at a rain-soaked wedding in the middle of Times Square. Kudos to you, lady.
