    The article isn’t very clear…were these women who wanted to pretend to get married?  Or did they actually get married?

    I think it’s nice. The ladies seemed genuinely happy and excited to be bridesmaids for this woman. I’m glad that they were told that they would be bridesmaids, and I don’t think they were misled in any way.

    It doesn’t sit quite right with me either. Like you said, I’m sure they were happy enough, but I almost see it like making a charitable donation in the guests’ honor in leau of actual favors. Like, “Look at all the good I’m doing! Tell me I’m a saint!” Especially with the news article. They didn’t talk to any of the women, just the bride who made it sound like such an honor to pretend to be a bride because you’ll never get married. I think the separate reception also threw me off. Were there families at that reception to see their daughters pretend to get married? Did they even get to go to the couple’s reception?

    I don’t know. It seems nice in theory, but I don’t like it.
