She came up with the idea last year, she told us, and said the requests have been pouring in.

"I think for brides out there, it's important to remember that this is a once in a lifetime experience and opportunity and to close your eyes, and just remember that this is the day you've always dreamed of," said Glanz.

Whether or not Brides disclose that Glantz is being hired, she told us it is up to the bride.

"It's typically up to the Bride to disclose I'm being hired or not," said Glantz
