Always a Bridesmaid (For Hire)
February 4th at 2pm

Jen Glantz will do a book reading, signing, and chat about
what it was like starting Bridesmaid for Hire.

Hear about Stories on Growing Up, Looking for Love, and Walking Down the Aisle for Complete Strangers

Jen Glantz is the world’s first professional bridesmaid and founder of “Bridesmaid for Hire.” She’s the heartbeat behind the website The Things I Learned From and is the author of the bestselling All My Friends are Engaged. She can be found in New York City wearing old bridesmaid dresses to the grocery store, or two-handing slices of one-dollar pizza. Jen Glantz will do a book reading, signing, and chat about what it was like starting ”Bridesmaid for Hire. “

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 Jen–and more insight into the meaning of love than she was getting from OKCupid—as she walked down the aisle at stranger after stranger’s wedding.

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 boss—or, at the very least, a BFF to another girl in need.
