As sweet as it is having your bestie ask you to stand beside her on her big day, any bridesmaid knows that with that title comes a depleted bank account, energy level, and free time. Being a bridesmaid is hard work, y'all — even if you're a celeb! Celebrities like Lena Dunham, Beyoncé, Lauren Conrad, and Taylor Swift have all stepped out of the spotlight, exchanged their red carpet gowns for bridesmaid dresses, and spent a day (or two) fluffing their BFF's train. Stars — they're just like us, amiright? And just like us normies, celebs are also susceptible to bridesmaid burnout. The latest victim of the affliction? Jennifer Lawrence, who recently got real about why she'll never be a bridesmaid again.
J. Law may be a dream bridesmaid to tons of fans (she may trip down the aisle, but she'll keep you laughing and stress-free throughout the day!), but it looks like Lawrence will be rejecting bridal party invites from now on. So far, the Passengers actress has been recruited four times (!) for bridesmaid duty and she's capping it at that. "All of my friends are getting married and having babies," the star said in her recent Vanity Fair cover story. "Weddings rock, but I will never be a bridesmaid again." She looked so perfect in that pastel yellow J.Crew bridesmaid dress (see photo below) at her brother's 2014 wedding, though! But alas, nothing is going to get this girl back in a chiffon bridal party frock.
"There needs to be a bridesmaids' union," Lawrence continued. (We must admit, that's not the worst idea, J. Law...) "It's horrendous. If anyone asks me again, I'm going to say, 'No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask.'"
The actress is taking such a strong stance on the bridesmaid issue that she doesn't even want to ask her own besties to suffer the status. "If I do ever get married," she mused. "I don't think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?" Any bride with a slew of BFFs can certainly relate...

Okay sure, being a bridesmaid is hard work but come our friends' wedding day, there's no place we'd rather be than standing beside her — and we're sure your 'maids feel the same way! And when the day arrives that Lawrence walks down the aisle — with her current beau, director Darren Aronofsky, perhaps? — we have no doubt that her famous friends will want to be right there by her side, too.
But for now, it looks like there'll be no 27 Dresses remake in this actress' future...
