The most important thing to have by your side on your wedding day, other than the bride/groom, of course, is a few good bridesmaids.
Bridesmaids are the ladies (and, occasionally, gentleman) who know you better than you know yourself.
They've been there for you through the best and worst times, in sickness and in health, and know your darkest secrets.
They are also the ones who take care of your problems, stop you from becoming a bridezilla, and party with you during your "last fling before the ring."
Naturally, you see why you'd want to pick only the best.
From ladies who have a proven "bridesmaids" track record to besties we know would make great ones in the future, here's a list of TV show characters we'd want in our bridal squad.
Jane Villaneuva - Jane the Virgin
The Planner. Jane goes all out for her friends and family, plus, her specialty is planning. During the show's four-season run, she served as a bridesmaid twice, so she has a lot of experience under her belt. The first time, she helped bestie Lina with a case of cold feet and helped her figure out if Danny was the right man for her. The second time, despite all the obstacles thrown her way, she came through to officiate her mother and father's wedding. She's also been a bride herself, so she knows a thing or two about the big day.
Jess Day - New Girl
The Fixer. No wedding is perfect. Something is bound to go wrong, so it's pertinent that you have someone who can smooth things over like Jess does during Schmidt's wedding. Not only does she stall when Schmidt is trying to convince Cece's mom to support the marriage, she also helps avoid a major dress crisis.
Rory and Lorelai - Gilmore Girls
The Day Ones. A mother-daughter duo standing up for your wedding is adorable especially if the duos consists of Rory and Lorelai Gilmore. You always want the women who have been there for you since day one to be by your side. Lorelai is even known to throw a bachelorette party for those she's not too fond of like her mother.
Brooke, Peyton, Haley - One Tree Hill
The High School Besties. I list all three of them because they were all there for each other during their individual weddings. Peyton and Brooke put aside their differences -- they were fighting over a boy, obviously -- to celebrate Hayley and Nathan! Brooke designed all the wedding dresses, Hayley filled in as Brooke's maid of honor when Peyton couldn't make it, and she even officiated Peyton and Lucas' wedding. Okay, Hayley wins this round!
Will McCormack - Will & Grace
The Gay Best Friend. Who said bridesmaids had to be girls? Sometimes, your best friend is your fabulous gay roommate who will do anything for you including escort you down the aisle and give you away to your Leo. Did I mention he also makes a damn good looking bridesmaid?
Monica Geller - Friends
The One Who Won't Take No For an Answer and is also a Good Planner. Even though Phoebe fired Monica as her wedding planner, she still stepped up to salvage the wedding when it was threatened by a massive snowstorm. And would you expect anything less than the most romantic wedding of the series from Monica Geller? Shoutout to Rachel Green because those three always come as a package.
