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 "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.

"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," James 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 captioned her Reddit post.

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!).

"Being a bridesmaid so many times has made me really good at smiling through the pain," she added.

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. We couldn't agree more!
