Rebeca Abrantes always dreamt of having a glamorous bridal photo shoot.
So a week out from the big day, Abrantes had been searching the internet for inspiration. She came across many photos of brides surrounded by their closest girlfriends — pampering each other, drinking champagne with one another and shaving together.
Abrantes wanted all of that, but there was one dilemma. She didn’t have girlfriends.
The 24-year-old from Brazil studies computer engineering and is one of the four women in her class of 60 students. This is why most of her friends are men.
Instead of ditching her dream bridal shoot she decided to go ahead with it with her closest guy friends. And it is possibly the greatest photoshoot you’ll ever see.
“I came up with the idea one week before the wedding. I was looking into some ‘making of’ pictures of brides with their gang of girls, all in robes, laughing, drinking champagne and all, and I got a bit sad because I wouldn’t be able to do anything like that,”Abrantes told Bored Panda.
And most of Abrantes’ bridal shoot dream came true. She had a gang (of guys) by her side, all in robes, laughing, getting facials and shaving together, measuring ‘the dress’ and drinking champagne.
Abrantes said: “The photo shoot was super fun. Everyone was taking shots of cheap booze and sometimes we were laughing so much that we had to take some time to recover and go on with the photos.”
Abrantes shared the hilarious snaps, captured by photographer Fernando Duque, on Facebook and it blew up with thousands and thousands of likes.
“I am very happy with the photos. Sometimes I look at them and find myself laughing like crazy. But I never imagined this would become so viral,” she told the publication.
