Some couples turn to hiring Bridesmaids
A wedding planner in one Chinese province is offering bridesmaids for hire to the increasing number of couples looking to emulate Western customs.
Cheng Fei, who works at Happiness Wedding Services Co in the Jiangxi provincial capital of Nanchang, said it was not hard for couples to find a best man, “but it is getting harder to bridesmaids”.
Each bridesmaid is paid 100 to 200 yuan ($15.40 to $30.80) per day.
“One is not enough for many. The trend is at least three bridesmaids and three best men, just for the atmosphere,” said a woman in Nanchang.
