Some background: I have a number of close relationships and have been a bridesmaid in 13 weddings, most of which have been a joy. I am now engaged (at 31). I would like a simple event, and to me that means not having the 10 bridesmaids I would probably want. My fiancé doesn’t have a large list of possible groomsmen, so we’ve decided to each have our sisters (1 each) stand with us. The thing is, there is a group of women who I love dearly and somehow want to “call out” without them needing to wear a matching dress or stand during a ceremony. A friend suggested listing them in the program as “bridal party” and having them be readers, ushers, etc. I was thinking maybe there’d be a way to have them wear a flower in their hair to identify them as being a part of it, but half of me thinks that idea is dumb.
Does anyone have ideas or feedback?! Thanks for any thoughts!
