Rebeca Sinohara, is a 24-year-old Computer Engineering student from Itajubá, Brazil who stunned the world as she got her male friends to be her bridesmaids, Buzz Feed reports.
Sinohara said that she didn’t have any close female friends.
“In my engineering classroom there were 56 guys and only four girls, so it’s not like I had a lot of choice,” she said.
“Of course I have girlfriends from childhood and high school but we are not as close as before, and there are some girls that I lived with in shared housing during university, but none of them I became BFFs with. I always knew that I wouldn’t have a gang of girls to be bridesmaids and to sit together putting on makeup and all before the event,”
She decided that she would take her wedding prep photos with her five closest guy friends instead.
Sinohara said her then-fiancé, Renato Sinohara, was a bit sad at first because he also wanted to be in the photos, but they managed to find a way to include him in the end.
“He was there during the photo shoot laughing the whole the time,” she said. “We all had a lot of fun in that day.”
Sinohara posted the photos to her Facebook page, where they quickly went viral, being shared more than 50,000 times.
“I definitely never thought it was going to go viral,” Sinohara said. “The pictures were supposed to be only for us, to keep as a good record.”
