As one of four women in a class of 60, Brazilian computer engineering student Rebeca Brantes didn't know how to have the bridal shower she dreamed of because her friends were mostly men.

But since gendering a simple wedding party tradition is a bit silly anyways, Brantes decided to invite her pals along to be bridesmales and the resulting photographs are hilarious and stunning.

"I came up with the idea one week before the wedding," Brantes told Bored Panda.

"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."

Turns out, she could-and so she did.

"The photoshoot 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," Brantes explained.

In the Instagram album she posted, the gang is all decked out with matching pink satin robes enjoying the calm before the wedding storm with cucumbers over their eyes and drinks in hand.

"I am very happy with the photos. Sometimes I look at then and find myself laughing like crazy. But I never imagined this would become so viral," she said.
