NEW YORK -- A Manhattan woman decided to make always, always being the bridesmaid a full-time job.

Jen Glantz, 26, came up with the idea last year and says ever since she started her business the requests have been pouring in.

Glantz came up with the idea after being asked to be a bridesmaid twice in one week. She decided to post an ad on Craigslist and the rest is history.

Now, Glantz offers several packages on her website.

Some have asked why a bride wouldn't just hire a wedding planner, but Glantz said the difference is that she focuses on the bride whereas wedding planners are focused on the overall preparations for the big day.
