Being a bridesmaid is a sacred honor that requires one to simultaneously morph into a therapist, crisis manager, and stylist. And while there’s nothing like being there for your BFF, sister, or even your mom on her big day, we often find ourselves needing some moral support. Enter Eimear Lynch’s The Bridesmaids: True Tales of Love, Envy, Loyalty… and Terrible Dresses, a new book that relays the unique experiences of almost 60 ‘maids who’ve played that supporting role in wildly different weddings. From the woman who carried Lady Di’s wedding train and to the man who crossed gender lines to support his college bestie, you’ll hear tales of crisis and triumph all in the name nuptial love.
