    I posted this as part of another thread but thought it would be more approrpiate here. Anyone have any good ideas on how to include people in your wedding without being a bridesmaid/groomsmen beyond doing a reading or passing out the fans or something?

    THANK YOU!!

      You can have them carry something down the aisle and place it on the alter, like an unlit candle or framed photo of someone special. Or just walk down the aisle as a "special attendant" or something and then take a seat rather than stand with the wedding party.

      My SIL walked down the aisle with her 2 kids then took a seat, and I've been to weddings where all the parents and grandparents were escorted down the aisle and seated, and this was also noted on the program.

        Not part of the ceremony, but you could do a special "thank you" of some sort in the programs.

          We are trying to find out the wedding songs of each married couple that is attending -- and playing each song during the ceremony. We will either announce each couple as their wedding song is played -- or just make a blanket announcement that we hope they enjoy hearing their own wedding song during our special night.

                      Great idea Tami!

                      I am having the same problem. I have this really tight group of 6 girls that I have been friends with since we were 11. We still do everything together including our own holiday dinners and stuff. I always imagined them and my sister as my wedding party, but FI has 2 sisters and a SIL that has been around for 11 years. I also need something for these people to do if I have my girls as my BMs.

                      PS BMs also means Baby Mama so I crack up when I write about my BMs
