Mindy Kaling has been a bridesmaid many times, and she has argued that being a bridesmaid is infinitely worse than being an usher.

Speaking on Late Night with Seth Myers, Kaling spoke about the inequality within the wedding party.

"I think that when you're a bridesmaid at a wedding, although it sounds kind of glamorous when you're younger, you're essentially a maid, you're like a slave - an unpaid slave to the wedding," she said.

"You're a maid and you know it because your dress is the same colour as the other maids', like your uniform, and your job is to guide grandparents, and like talk to foreigners, and like seat people who look confused.

 

"But when you're a groomsman, you're technically expected to be helpful but all they really do is drink beer and play with the dogs."

She also said that all an usher has to do in their speech is "say the place where you went to college and then every girl wants to sleep with you".
