Would it be weird to have unofficial bridemaids

What do you think?
I know they wouldn't mind, would probably be more honored then anything.
So glad you brought this up. I have some really great friends from different stages of my life and I was wondering how to involve them in the wedding. I am having 4 bridesmaids, my sister, 2 nieces and 1 of my best friends. But somehow I need to tell my other friends that a. they and their friendship is important to me and b. that I can't have them in the wedding becuase really I would either have just a MO or 12 bridesmaids which doesn't make sense. Most of my friends are in their 30s and have been BMs enough times. I really want to spare them the agony of being a BM, buying a dress we all know they won't wear again and all that. I just want everyone to come and enjoy the party. I hope they understand and maybe are even relieved. I think some may question why I added my best friend in there since they'll all feel just as important but I just can't ask them all to be a BM.

I really want to do the sand ceremony....but I am such a keepsake person for these types of things! Are you guys going to just toss the sand and bring the vase home afterwards or carry the thing in your arms all the way home so it does not mix up? I was thinking it would be easier to toss the sand and just keep my vase/container.

I, too have a similar problem. I have been racking my brain for a way to honour my girlfriend. I thought about having them all wear the same colour, but then thought that may be weird. So, I think I am going to present them each with a flower to wear in their hair upon arrival, and let them where whatever they would like.

That is a really good idea!

I think having an honourary BM is a great idea. Depending on who attends my wedding, I may do it myself. They can be assigned tasks to help out on the day of, and help you get ready. I think it sounds like fun!

 

With respect to the sand ceremony I know I am going to have a tough sell as well. Good luck!

I really like the idea of buying each of the honorary bridesmaid flowers for their hair. In one bridal mag I saw the cousins of the bride all wore white hats which is a similar idea.

I also like the color dresses.. although my color is lime green which does not look good on everyone. :o)

I'm in a similar situation. We're only having my sister for my MOH and his best friend for best man. I'm going to assign my bestfriend the job of MC. She's super organized and I can count on her to make sure everything runs smoothly (for both DW and AHR). She loves the idea and has been very supportive.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
