Bride posts Craigslist ad asking for bridesmaids

Here's a crazy story coming out of British Columbia. A soon-to-be bride recently posted an advertisement to Craigslist asking for help. Her problem? She says she's marrying a really "popular groom" who already has six groomsmen, but she only has one bridesmaid. The call out on Craigslist invites women to apply for the role of bridesmaid -- with five positions to be filled. With a pay rate of $20 per day (per bridesmaid, of course), the ad also outlines a few "perks" and a list of restrictions: You must be willing to appear at all events, you must be between sizes 0-6 (because the bride is buying the dresses), you should be willing to lie and act (what?!) and be willing to memorize information about the bride. These are just a few things on the list. Here's a screengrab of the actual ad, which has since been removed from Craigslist. CraigslistBridesmaid I've got strong opinions about this, and there's a part of me that's hoping this is a joke. My gut is telling me otherwise, though. Do you think these demands sound reasonable? Would you apply for the job? Let us know in the comments section, below.
