Some cou­ples turn to hir­ing Brides­maids

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

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.
