Bride, Rebecca Abrantes, did not let a lack of female friends stop her from having a big traditional pre-wedding party. Instead, she had her male friends stepped in as bridesmaids for the day, and it worked out perfectly.
Rebecca Abrantes, 24, a computer engineering student from Brazil is one of four females from her class of 60 students, which is why, most of her friends are guys.
A week before her wedding, Rebecca realized she wanted the traditional bridesmaids party photoshoot – manicures, pedicures, facials and a lot of drinking and gossiping.
She said, “I came up with the idea one week before the wedding. 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.”
Despite her lack of girlfriends, Rebecca did not let it stop her from having the perfect photoshoot with the support of her guy friends.
The bride wore a white silk robe, with rollers in her hair, while her friends around her wore baby pink satin robes.
She further said, “The photoshoot was super fun. Everyone was taking shots of cheap booze and sometimes we were laughing so much that we had to take some time to recover and get on with the photos.”
Rebecca shared the photoshoot on her Facebook and it instantly went viral as people caught on to the cute idea.
Throughout the photoshoot, the boys played along the “bridesmaids duties” while they relaxed themselves with facial masks, reacted to gossip and even shaved their legs.
She later claimed, “I am very happy with the photos. Sometimes I look back at them and find myself laughing like crazy. But I never imagined they would become so viral.”
