My fiance and I have a large bridal party and each of us went mixed gender. Originally we were gonna have all girls on one side and boys on the other. But now I'm facing the dilemma that two of the girls, coincidentally his choices are unlikely to get their dresses on time. I don't want to have to toss them from the wedding at the last minute if they don't come in time. I figure it's punishment enough that they'll have to buy a second dress last minute. Also, I don't want the drama of everyone thinking I'm outting them because they aren't my friends. In all honesty, I'm glad it worked out this way because if it were one and one I'd be screwed I think. So, I've suggested we keep our friends on our own sides. This way, guys are still dressed alike, but the bridesmaids are all in different colors, same style dress. Should the dresses arrive, I don't think it'll look weird to split based on who knows the bride or groom. But if the dresses don't come, I can tell the girls to go buy lbds that match and it'll look just fine too when they're on the groom's side instead of a desperate last second attempt to buy matching dresses in different colors than aren't already represented. Anyway, the groom's okay with this plan...the only thing he hates is the titles. I don't want to call his picks bridesmaids in the program and my picks groomsmen. I think it's a. inaccurate and b. confusing to the guests. And he doesn't want to call them groomsmaids and bridesmen. Is there something more asexual we can use for the entire parties minus MOHs and Bestman? Bride's indentured servants? Groom's Drinking Buddies? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
