Bride asks five STRANGERS to be her bridesmaids as ‘last-minute’ wedding

A Texas couple who planned a ‘last-minute’ wedding filled out their guest list with strangers — with the bride choosing five bridesmaids whom she’d never met before.

Alexis and Donovan Kiser, both 22, moved from Ohio to Texas in January of this year and made a spontaneous decision to have a wedding this month.

Because friends and family would be unable to travel with so little notice — particularly during a pandemic — the couple decided to simply invite a bunch of strangers they met online, including five bridesmaids whom Alexis connected with on Bumble BFF.

Alexis and Donovan did know some of their wedding guests in advance, though just barely.

Among the attendees were two of Donovan’s coworkers, as well as neighbors the couple has known for just two months.

But the rest were new friends that the pair quickly made online.

Alexis joined Bumble BFF, Bumble’s platform that connects people seeking friendships, and found a handful of strangers to celebrate with them on their special day.

She also asked five women — Ciara, Madeline, Elena and Danielle, and Haley — to be her bridesmaids. 

One of the bridesmaids, Haley, was asked to join just two days prior to the event, which was held this past Sunday, April 25. 

But despite the rushed meetings, Alexis and Donovan say the day was ‘a blast’ — and they may have even made friends for life.
