*Every week, we give our readers a glimpse inside the mindset of a guy's brain on weddings with the help of the hilarious and smart editors at The Plunge. For their latest installment, they're revealing what they really think about your bridesmaids, as described by some of our favorite teen movie titles of the greatest decade. *
10 Things I Hate About You (above): We don't hate any of your ladies, but we do have one that we love/hate. She's a great friend to you (obviously) and a great person and we get along, but there's just always something that rubs us the wrong way. We hate that our personalities differ and when she steers you wrong. We hate that she roots for our rival team and loves that stupid song. We hate that she's too involved, or not enough to call. But mostly we hate the way we don't hate her. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

Clueless: Every group of girls has one hot mess friend (Fun fact: If you can't figure out who it is in your group, it's you!) and your group of bridesmaids has one girl who just can't get with the program. She doesn't respond to your emails, flakes out on your events, loses touch, has to be reminded of things, and generally gives you more work than you should have to take on instead of taking things off your plate like a good bridesmaid should. Sorry that was way harsh, but this girl, ugh.

Scream: Straight up, this girl scares us. And we know you know exactly which one.

She's All That: Bless you, Laney Boggs of bridesmaids. You've been the prom queen, the MVP all along and only we notice. You celebrate with our bride-to-be in her times of joy and talk her off the ledge in her moments of crisis. You're always connected with a quick phone call or email even if you don't live nearby and haven't seen her in ages. You offer great advice. You talk to our future mother in law about flowers and things. You do all the dirty work we'd be stuck doing otherwise. If you were a hacky sack, we'd never let you drop.
