What if you're getting married and want to partake in the age old "bridesmaids" tradition with your BFF's, but all your BFF's are—gasp!—men???
CALL OFF THE WEDDING!!!
JK. It's 2017, people. Just just get your guy friends some pink robes and ply them with booze and, ooh a la!
This gender-bending bridal party was the brainchild of Rebeca Abrantes, a 23-year-old engineering student from Brazil who got married last week.
Abrantes wanted to include her best friends in her pre-wedding festivities, but she works in a male-dominated field, so most of her friends are guys.
"I was looking into some 'making of' pictures of brides with their gang of girls, all in robes, laughing, drinking champagne and all, and I got a bit sad because I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that," she told Bored Panda.
Luckily, her guy friends rose to the occasion. Beautifully.
There's a lot that goes into being a bridesmaid, as these men quickly learned. One must look their best.
And that includes shaving....your legs.
You must take cheeky photos.
And booze. Lots of booze.
These brosmaids, in true bro fashion, may have gone a little overboard on the booze.
"The photoshoot was super fun," said Abrantes. "Everyone was taking shots of cheap booze and sometimes we were laughing so much that we had to take some time to recover and go on with the photos."
Good thing they did recover. Abrantes shared her non-traditional bridesmaids photos on Facebook, where they wracked up over 70,000 "likes" and 50,000 shares since last week. And according to the comments, people are obsessed with the idea.
Will brosmaids soon overtake bridesmaids as a pre-wedding tradition?
On behalf of women who have been bridesmaids everywhere, YES PLEASE.
