Please help me come up with a different name for Honorary Bridesmaid!

Recommended Posts

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.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
