Weddings are supposed to be the best day of your life, but sometimes there can be drama.
One bride is trying to avoid all trouble after fearing her mother-in-law would upstage her at the wedding.
The woman is desperate to have a smooth day that she's offered to pay someone to keep her partner's mum on her best behaviour.
She took to Craiglist to post an advert offering $1,000 (£720) to attend the wedding to field her mother-in-law's potential drama.
Also the bride is asking for the potential candidate to be aged between 40 and 60.
The ad, which was later shared on Reddit, explained the bride's mother-in-law "needs constant attention and supervision".

It read: "Your job is simply to distract and de-escalate.
"Flatter her for two days and make an easy $1,000 (£720)."
But the bride isn't just looking for anyone, she wants someone with an extensive list of attributes.
She added: "You: Conversationalist, de-escalator, good dancer, experience with narcissists a plus, able to pretend to be a guest interested in sitting with/dancing with MIL (mother-in-law), able to give her your undivided attention, had own suit to wear."
In return the happy couple would provide "conversation topics" and "background information" as well as a hotel room, food and travel expenses.
The bride asked people to send a photo of themselves as well as a quick blurb indicating their interest and qualifications.
She continued: "You will also need to be able to be OK with us running a background check on you just for safety's sake."
Since it was shared on Reddit, many weren't so sure of the bride's requests with one calling it "so tacky".

Another commented: "Jesus. That sounds like a job for a hostage negotiator!"
Meanwhile others loved the idea, with one writing: "When I read it, I immediately thought of my husband.
"He is amazing at de-escalating situations and he would be fantastic at this. He deals with my crazy mum all the time for free."
A second user joked: "This is just asking to be a romantic comedy. Netflix where you at?"
