The Bridesmaids by Eimear Lynch


I’m in my late twenties so I’m at the age when a lot of my friends are getting engaged and married. I’ve been the flower girl and bridesmaids in family weddings but haven’t been in a friend’s wedding yet. But I think most women can relate to being a bridesmaid or maid of honor at some point in their lives. This book complies over 50 short stories from both men and women of being in these positions. They are from all walks of life. Here are a list of the different characters as well as the titles of the chapters:

  • The Very Pregnant OBGYN
  • The Seasoned Pro
  • The Prison Bridesmaid
  • The Man of Honor
  • The Burning Man Bridesmaid
  • The Ex Nun

I’ve always loved weddings and it’s fun to take little glimpses into other people’s stories of their wedding days and the preparation that goes into it as well as the aftermath. Weddings are also a time of high stress and a lot of clashing personalities. These stories vary from bringing friends closer together to ending years long friendships. It’s a very quick read since each chapter is only 2-4 pages long. It’s a nice, quick, interesting read.
