The joys of being a bridesmaid are far-and-few between. Sure, helping your best friend prepare for her special day can be great, but to be honest, the hours are long, the expenses are brutal and the promise of good-looking groomsmen? Little to none. Sure it's her special day, but what about the poor bridesmaid following the beautiful, white train down the aisle.

Well, as the old saying goes, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, and that's exactly what one bridesmaid did when she joined the bride and groom in a romantic wedding photo (not exactly what we had in mind). Janessa James, a

1. Well, as the old saying goes, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, and that's exactly what one bridesmaid did when she joined the bride and groom in a romantic wedding photo (not exactly what we had in mind). Janessa James, a "perpetually single" bridesmaid" according to Brides, was granted a very important task during her best friend's bridal shoot in Sundance, Utah. She was asked to toss the veil into the air, and then hurry out of the picture (an attempt to create a natural, windblown look). Are you familiar with this story?

2. "After a while, the photographer realized that I wasn't getting far enough out of the shot to properly cut me out, so I dove, and she caught the best moment ever," Janessa told Brides. "This is how I am currently feeling about Wedding and engagement season coming up... {Yes, this is an actual photo of me (extremely single) helping my best friend with the bridals. The photographer asked me to throw her train up and then dive out of the shot, and so I did. Very theatrically}," James said. Do you think it was appropriate for Janessa to do a theatrical dive for a wedding day photo (or photo-bomb)?

3. While this wasn't her first time as a bridesmaid, James revealed she's worn about a dozen bridesmaid dresses before this. It seems this was her first time upstaging a bride in her own wedding photos (whoops!). If you are a man, there is a "not applicable" option. Would a memorable wedding day photo like this upset you, if you were the bride?

4. Pictured: (James in a wedding dress as a child). "Being a bridesmaid so many times has made me really good at smiling through the pain," added Janessa. Her post has racked up 722 points on Reddit since it was uploaded five days ago. And it's pretty clear everyone now loves her as she's proven she's the best friend anyone could have. "You're an amazing friend! I hope everyone has someone as dedicated as you!" one person commented on her photo. If you are a man, there is a "not applicable" option. Are you always the bridesmaid, but never the bride?

Lastly, though photographers Bri Robbins and Chloe Epperson from The Copper Creative Photoshopped James out of the final version, she got to keep the actual original shot. The socioeconomics major at Brigham Young University in Utah wants to make it clear she isn't bitter about being the go-to bridesmaid.

The socioeconomics major at Brigham Young University in Utah wants to make it clear she isn't bitter about being the go-to bridesmaid. "I'm always happy to help," James said. "I've performed original raps, yelled at incompetent staff, put together cakes and bouquets, calmed down the families, run to get ice and food. I've done just about everything." Do you think Janessa makes a good friend and bridesmaid?
