With hen dos, wedding planning and multiple dress fittings, being a bridesmaid can be hard work.
And now there's a new requirement to add to the friendship-straining ordeal - flashing your knickers for a humorous bum-baring photo shoot.
It seems the days of virginal bridesmaids and sentimental wedding snaps is gone and a series of provocative snaps are taking their place.
People have long been mixing up their nuptials with wacky wedding dances, festival fiestas and quirky snaps.
But this cheeky new trend, which sees not-so-blushing brides and their bridesmaids flashing their panties, might be the most out-there idea yet.
The photos, which have been circulating Pinterest, see the bridal party revealing their behinds to the camera.
So far the selection that have been posted on social media reveals everything from lacy French knickers to tiny thongs and even totally bare bottoms.
One cheeky snap sees retro bridesmaids in red heels and matching ruffled knickers while another bridal party planned ahead and had their pants printed for the occasion.
It may be a little undignified but it's certainly a great way to show off the results of your pre-wedding diet.
And the comical snaps of you and your loyal friends will no doubt bring back great memories of your big day.
We're just not sure what the grandkids will think in years to come!
