9 Times 'Pretty Little Liars' Girl Hanna Marin Was You As A Bridesmaid
If there's one girl on Pretty Little Liars who is incapable of not saying exactly what's on her mind, it's the inimitable Hanna Marin. The blonde may not always pronounce words correctly, or know the proper euphemisms (it's not "if the feather fits," just as an FYI), but she's always ready to defend herself and her friends with her own brand of verbal sparring. This makes Hanna an amazing friend to have in her corner, and an amazingly quotable character. In fact, when it comes to relating to your life experiences, Hanna Marin understands what it's like to be a bridesmaid for you — even though she's never been one to her friends before. Yet.
While I don't doubt that Hanna would be an excellent bridesmaid for Spencer, Aria, Emily, or any of the ladies in her squad, she wouldn't be a blind devotee to the bride. There's simply no way that our girl would put up with ridiculous BS from a friend who was acting more bridezilla than BFF. (Anyone else think that Mona would be the scariest monster bride ever? I mean, you don't run over your best friend with a car only to be a reasonable soon-to-be newlywed.)
Hanna's a champ at saying what's on her mind, which is why she definitely would understand what it's like to be trapped in a bridesmaid situation that's less-than-stellar. Here's how we're all Hanna as a bridesmaid, even if Hanna tends to say what we're thinking out loud way more frequently than we have the courage to.

3. When You See The Calendar Of Wedding-Related Activities

6. When You See How The Maid Of Honor Is Always So Hyped About Wedding Stuff
