A Maid of Honor has various important duties to uphold. Primarily she’s there to provide practical and emotional support to the bride. She might also help with her veil, bouquet, and anything else she might require assistance with. But the most important thing about being a Maid of Honor is that they are not, under any circumstances, to upstage the bride on her special day, but as you can see from these pictures snapped at a wedding in Alberta, Canada, nobody told Sharilyn Wester that!
The wedding photographer, Ashley Hempel, asked Sharilyn to assist with the veil toss portion of the couple’s photoshoot, but the Maid of Honor decided to take her duties to the next level by making the day of her BFF Rebecca and her husband James Foster even more special with a series of hilarious poses. Fortunately Rebecca was in on the whole thing, but nobody warned James, which may explain some of his own awkward poses. “The groom had no idea what we decided to do,” said Sharilyn, “but once we started acting goofy, he played along and was laughing.”
Despite the seemingly impromptu nature of the shoot, the Maid of Honor revealed that the prank had actually been a long time in the making. “It was based off a photo Rebecca saw that we both decided we had to recreate,” she explained. “This was two years before the actual wedding!” So remember, all of you potential bridesmaids out there, if you’re going to upstage the bride, just make sure you have permission first!
