Would it be weird to have unofficial bridemaids

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of doing the sand unity ceremony but we wouldn't have been able to have a table outside. I was going to involve my friends by having them hold the vase and bring the basket with the sand jars in it up and hold them.

My FI and Dad are totally against the sand ceremony. I am so mad. We are going to be at NF so you won't be able to hear that great so I liked this because it was visual. My dad said it looks like doing sandart at the boardwalk! :o

Not at all. A girlfriend of mine is doing Honorary Bridesmaids, because they are doing a limited wedding party (4 on her side and 4 on his, mostly all family), she still wanted to honor all of her close friends as apart of the bridal party. They are wearing her wedding colors for the wedding and will be apart of the pictures etc. Neither live in her town so she did not want to have to ask them to add the expense of dresses, shoes, hair, etc after having to pay for flights, rooms, etc. She is even listing them in her program as her HB's. Hope this helps!

Hello there. Not at all! A girlfriend of mine is doing Honorary Bridesmaids, because they are doing a limited wedding party (4 on her side and 4 on his, mostly all family), she still wanted to honor all of her close friends as apart of the bridal party. They are wearing her wedding colors (Shades of Greens I believe) for the wedding and will be apart of the pictures etc. Neither live in her town so she did not want to have to ask them to add the expense of dresses, shoes, hair, etc after having to pay for flights, rooms, etc. She is even listing them in her program as her HB's.

I don't think there is anything wrong with it....it depends on you and your friends. We have our two witnesses each, so the couple of other friends I would have in a wedding party if it was home and large are going to be involved in other ways...readings, etc.

sad.gif so sad for you, I think the Sand Unity Ceremony is so pretty, just make sure you sure more natural colors if they think it looks artlike (The bright colors can be overwhelming). I made a jar with sand art for my living room to incorporate the colors of the room to test out if I liked it for our ceremony 1. to get an ideal of what it would look like with 1-5 colors and 2. to not spend a lot of money on something that I wouldn't like, it turned out really pretty. I would suggest going to Michael's or a craft store and purchasing a small sample of sand and a pretty vase and do a mock ceremony... note: to me doing 3 colors looked the best, just make sure that you do one color, then the next, then the next, it can look a bit weird if you do them too fast... maybe if they see how nice it can look they will be for it!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
