Best Man is the groom right and left hand through all stages of wedding planning. He's a bachelor-party master of ceremonies, and commander-in-chief of the groomsmen brigade. His duties include getting the groom to the ceremony on time; signing the couple's marriage license; and holding the bride's wedding ring at the altar. He also is famous for his toasting skills.
Bridesmaids are gal pals and female family members who form the bride's entourage. They are a support team for the maid of honor, helping with pre-wedding tasks when asked (addressing invites, making bridal shower favors, planning the bachelorette party, and more).
Groomsmen a group of male family and friends who assist the groom in planning and preparing for the big day. Help the best man plan and pay for the bachelor party and to support the groom. It's also common to have groomsmen do double duty as ushers, leaving their posts in time to process with the rest of the bridal party. They also get to decorate the getaway car.
Flower Girls aged three through eight who walk down the aisle before the bride, scattering flower petals from a basket (or carrying a pomander). Most flower children sit with their parents after completing their stroll.
Ring Bearer a young boy (or girl) aged four through eight, who walks down the aisle just before the flower girl (if there is one), carrying a small decorative pillow with two wedding bands tied to it (usually fakes, in case they are lost
The wedding party consist of many people, with many titles, and many roles. The average wedding party is usually made up of Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaids, Flower Girl(s), Best Man/Men, Groomsmen, and Ring Bearer. That is your normal line-up. Now sometimes you may include, Junior Bridesmaid and Junior Groomsmen, Bible Bearer, Mini Bride and Mini Groom. I could be here all day listing the titles of different wedding party roles. The question that I get asked often is "who should I have in my wedding party?" my answer to that is always, "whoever you would like to have stand in the presence of your exchange of vows that bring nothing but positive energy. Everyone should know by now, that I am truly outside of the box, and there are no rules and regulations, when it comes to things of this nature here is examples to what I mean....Do the amount of the ladies, have to equal to the amount of the men NO....the worst thing is to ask someone to be in your wedding party only because you need to even out a number....Do I have to even have a wedding party at all NO... wheter you have two people standing at the alter with you, or twenty people standing at the alter, it will not make or break the significance of your wedding vows.....Do I have to include all titles in my wedding party, like do I have to find a flower girl, a junior bridesmaid and etc. NO....when it comes to selecting a bridal party, in which is suppose to be a joyus occasion, not a nail bitter because you do not want to offend or hurt anyone's feelings. At the end of the day, if their true reason is to be able to witness the union between two people in love, they would just even be honored to be invited. (HINT) Be very cautious and do not feel pressured, when persons just put themselves in your wedding party! HHHMMM
