    What else can I call friends that won't be standing at the alter? I want me and hubby to be at the alter. I want a couple friends and siblings to maybe walk down the aisle but sit down during the ceremony, also maybe wear the same color, but not matchy outfits...

    any suggestions? has anyone had "honorary bridesmaids" instead if a true bridal party?

      I don't have any really great ideas.....but if you are not having anyone stand at the alter with you, maybe they could just be called your "bridesmaids" or your "bridal party," except they won't stand at the alter like a traditional wedding? Your BM's don't have to do the traditional standing up at the alter, they can just sit in the front row?

      Like I said, its not great or creative, but it is an idea. Maybe someone will have a better one for you :)

          Hmmm... I like Pearlygirl's idea! I may end up doing the same thing if we don't have a lot of guests besides the WP. They will all be called bm's / gm's but if they are our only guests outside of parents and a few others; they will prob walk down the aisle and then take a seat in the front rows or something. They will all wear the VS convertible dress in different ways but same color.

          If you don't want to call them BM's / GM's -- I have heard of them called:
          I am not sure if I like the first 3 or four but still putting them out there-
          Ladies in Waiting
          Hand Maidens
          Lovely Ladies
          Mon Mademoisselles
          I like this one though-
          Leading Ladies

            thanks you guys,
            funny how I never thought to just call them bridesmaids, I guess I thought they had to stand at the alter?!?

            This whole bridal party thing is so confusing. I can't make up my mind! Luckily we have plenty of time.

            thanks again for the ideas... I love the Leading Ladies title btw.

              I'm going to call them, "Friends of Honor." I didn't coin this phrase, but i love it!!
