A DESPERATE bride is looking for a date for her “needy” mother-in-law on her big day – and she’s willing to pay the stranger £700.
Posting her advert on Craigslist the bride-to-be, from Hudson Valley, revealed that she was willing to fork out for a hotel room for the bloke if he could keep the groom’s mum “distracted.”

In the ad, she writes: “I’m looking for a wedding date for my mother-in-law from Friday evening to Saturday evening for a wedding in Hudson Valley in August.
“She needs constant attention and supervision. She will probably wear white and try to escalate small dramas – your job is simply to distract and de-escalate.
“Flatter her for two days and make an easy $1,000.”
The ideal candidate will have “experience with narcissists”, as well as being a good conversationalist with dancing skills.

While a suit won’t be provided the successful candidate will be provided with a hotel room, food and have their travel expenses paid.
The advert has since been shared on Reddit, with users applauding the “brilliant” idea.
Commenting on the post, one wrote: “Love it. A true ‘throw some money at the problem’ response.”
“Excellent problem solving skills,” added another, while a third commented, “Brilliant. Just brilliant.”
