Your wedding day. It's supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? You've found the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with, and your wedding day is a day to commemorate your love for one another, all while celebrating this love with your family and friends.
However, some people may use their wedding day to showcase things other than just the love for their partner. One New Orleans bride took her wedding as an opportunity to showcase just how many friends she has. Yep, rather than focusing on the life-promises made to her new husband, this bride insisted on gathering together a staggering thirty-four gal-pals to accompany her down the aisle.
I don't even know that many people... Anyway, continue reading to see the extent of this bride's wedding day. It's quite extravagant, to say the least.
Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your life.
So, obviously, everything has to be perfect.
From the dress to the food served, every bride wants every aspect of their big day to be amazing.
It symbolizes the love that you hold for your partner.
A wedding day commemorates the lifetime of love that you have promised to give to your partner.
And some people are quick to forget that the actual wedding is only one day – It’s the marriage that is for life (supposedly).
By getting married, you are embarking on a life-long commitment.
Though with Vegas on our doorstep, there are some people who are quick to forget this.
But most couples are in it for the long run.
It turns out that not everyone is a huge commitment-phobe like me. Huh.
Anyway, the majority of couples who are due to be wed are tying the knot for a reason: they want to spend the rest of their lives together.
So, of course, you want all your family and friends there.
It’s only natural that you would want to be surrounded by your closest family members and friends on your big day.
But, despite it being the happiest of days, there can be some Bridezillas out there...
According to the Urban Dictionary, a Bridezilla is “a woman who has become so possessed and obsessed with her wedding plans that she has merged into a hybrid events/catering/ambiance driven monster.”
A Bridezilla can come in many different forms...
Whether it’s obsessing over her dress, over the uncontrollable weather, or over what shoes her second-cousin has shown up in, every bride can have her own Bridezilla moment.
And some brides simply like to make a scene.
Did your wedding day even happen if you didn’t do something ridiculously and dramatically over-the-top?
Though, come on. Planning a wedding is enough stress to turn any of us into a Bridezilla.
I mean, this is supposedly the biggest day of your life.
Not only are you catering for you and your partner, you’re also catering for hundreds of other guests, too. Seating charts, decorations, food and drink menus, pre-wedding events… There’s a lot of tip-toeing around other people’s needs and, let’s be honest, who has time for that?!
But there is one bride who seemingly couldn't have enough wedding guests...
Meet Casme Carter.
An Instagram influencer, musician, motivator and mentor, Casme isn’t afraid of sharing her life with the world, or her 31,000 followers.
She excitedly announced her engagement only 3 months ago.
And Casme officially tied the knot on a beach in Destin, Florida, on June 2nd, in an elaborate and glamorous ceremony.
Casme had the wedding planned down to a T.
She’s clearly a woman who knows what she wants.
Carter stated that she had a Pinterest board for her wedding that she had worked on for several years, even before even meeting her husband-to-be. If that isn’t dedication, I don’t know what is.
And she was dead set on her bridesmaids...
All thirty-four of them.
6 of them were her sisters (already, that would be too many for me…), and the other twenty-eight consisted of her closest friends.
And, unbelievably, she was planning on having even more bridesmaids.
Yeah, because thirty-four women just isn’t enough girl power for this bride.
She stated that she had initially planned on having fifty bridesmaids, but some of the ladies couldn’t make it because of family reasons and one was deployed in the army.
So this was the final outcome.
If this isn’t the most boujee thing you’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is.
And, apparently, it didn’t take too long to get them all down the aisle. Casme explained: “I think people were worried it was going to take forever, but it really didn’t.” A dozen of the ladies walked down with the groomsmen, who there was a normal number of, while the rest of the girl-gang walked down the aisle as if it were the runway of a fashion show.
Her husband opted for a more manageable number of groomsmen.
And the number of bridesmaids that Casme had recruited was kept a secret until her big day.
Because it just doesn’t count unless there’s a dramatic reveal at the end.
Even the bridesmaids themselves didn’t know how many of them there would be. While planning the wedding, Casme broke them into a couple of separate group chats to discuss details and dresses.
And the surprise apparently went down without any hiccups.
Though the main question on everyone's lips right now is... Why?
Why did they all have to be bridesmaids?
Casme explained that, throughout the years of traveling and working as a motivator and influencer, she has picked up many close friends. “Every lady was handpicked,” the New Orleans-based performer said. “I traveled for eighteen years as a singer and made incredible friends along the way. I felt so loved and blessed to have had some of them by my side.”
Beats the 3 friends that I’ve picked up in my twenty-five years on this Earth…
And every bridesmaid all got along... Apparently.
The group was a mix of ladies aged between twenty-one to fifty, and contained a huge array of careers, such as lawyers, doctors, and performers. “We had doctors and performers and lawyers, just a big assortment of different personalities and it was nothing but love,” she said.
Though Casme said that she didn’t ask for gifts from any of her bridesmaids, as their presence alone was a big enough gift for her.
Now that’s true friendship.
