Usually, there are certain traditions that follow almost every wedding, such as brides having bridesmaids and grooms having groomsmen. But let’s face it, traditions can sometimes be boring, and it’s nice to mix up things sometimes, which is exactly what this 24-year-old girl from Brazil did for her big day. Rebeca Abrantes always dreamt of having a perfect bridal shoot with her bridesmaids on her wedding day, but since the majority of her friends are male, this means it was a struggle.
However, grey skies aside, as Rebeca decided to get her guy friends in the photo shoot, and the results are truly amazing, to say the least.
With Rebeca wearing a white gown, obviously, and the guys donning pink ones, the group posed for a mixture of fun and traditional photos that shows them drinking, shaving their legs, gazing at Rebeca’s wedding dress and helping her put on her make-up for the big day. The bridal shower ended with the group having facials with slices of cucumbers on their eyes.
The bride, delighted at how well the photoshoot turned out, told Bored Panda:
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.
She explained how fun it was:
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 go on with the photos.
I am very happy with the photos. Sometimes I look at them and find myself laughing like crazy. But I never imagined this would become so viral.
Way to go Rebeca! Now where my guy friends at?
