Who's in a Wedding Party?

Who's in a Wedding Party?
The wedding party, are the people that participate directly in the wedding ceremony itself. Depending on the location, religion, and style of the wedding, this group may include only the individual people that are marrying, or it may include one or more brides, grooms (or bridegrooms), persons of honor, bridespersons, best persons, groomsmen, flower girls, pages and ringbearers. A woman’s wedding party consists of only those on her side of the wedding party. Those on a groom’s side are called his groom’s party.

There would be something wrong if we didn't know who the bride was. But her responsibilities (apart from the obvious) are; planning all aspects of the wedding; with the groom of course (Yeh right) from ordering the cake, picking the dress to arranging the flowers. Not forgetting her most important role is marrying the groom. 

Maid/Matron of Honor
Is usually the bride's best friend who helps with all the planning. She is the to provide emotional support where needed and fight back those last minute butterflies. She arranges the bachelorette/hen party, helps the bride get ready on the big day, makes a toast to the bride and groom, signs the marriage license, holds the bouquet during the vows and collects gifts at the reception. She is the last bridesmaid to walk down the aisle before the bride, holding the groom's ring on her thumb.

These girls are usually close friends and family of the bride. They help the bride to plan for the big day; sending invites, planning bridal shower, bachelorette parties etc.. They are also there to offer support if needed.

Father of the Bride
In traditional fashion the father of the bride stumped up most of the cash for the wedding. He usually takes a back seat and lest the mother deal with most of the event but can help out with arranging transport, tipping where appropriate etc.. His biggest role is to give his daughter away by walking her down the aisle not to mention the famous father of the bride speech. 

Father of the Groom
The father of the groom has always taking a back seat where planning and help out is concerned but is noted for paying for the rehearsal dinner, and sometimes the honeymoon. 

Apart from the obvious he helps the bride (where permitted) arranging the wedding. His make tasks are; booking the honeymoon, gathering a band or DJ, arranging transport, finding accommodation for out of town guests, and so on. His main role of cause is to turn up on time and make an honest woman of the bride. 

Best Man
This guy is at the groom's side from start to finish and will organize the stag party, deliver speeches, etc.. He is in charge of the groomsmen and is responsible for them to have everything prepared in time for the wedding. He is responsible for getting the groom to the ceremony on time, gives the officiant his/her fee, signing the marriage license, and taking care of the bride's ring. 

Friends and family of the groom who help with planning and preparing for the wedding. They assist the best man and help plan and pay for the bachelor/stag party. It's also common to have groomsmen as ushers. They also help decorate the get away car and get to dance with all the single bridesmaids.

Mother of the Bride
The bride's mum helps with the planning (note not to take over) arranging the guest list, hostess at the rehearsal dinner, shoulder to cry on when things get to much and all round strength of the party.

Mother of the Groom
The groom's mum can assume any of the bride's mum's responsibilities, if permitted. Works with the bride's mother on the guest list and others as much support as possible. Don't forget the mother and son dance. 

Are the cleric or city official who performs the marriage ceremony. 

Flower Girl
Flower girls are usually aged between 2-8 and walk down the aisle ahead of the bride scattering flower petals from a basket.

Junior bridesmaids/Groomsmen/Ushers
Young members of the wedding party (aged 9-16). They'll attend all major functions (excluding stag and hen parties) and fulfill the same responsibilities as senior members.

Ring Bearer

Beautiful Cathedral Length Veils

Beautiful Cathedral Length Veils
These dreamy veils are fantastic if you are want to get that elegant and romantic look.  The veils are really long and there are a few things to consider before making a decision.
You will need it to complement your dress and also consider your body type.
Petite brides usually want to create the impression of height.  They can wear pouf veils as long as the volume up top.  Also if you are short, a cathedral length veil isn't the best choice.  You can get the drama and extension you are looking for by scaling down to a waltz or chapel length to fit your proportion.
heavier and/or thick waisted brides look best in a one layer dropped veil tacked into a bun.
After the ceremony if  you are in a long veil and want to remove part of it after the reception, have your salon work out the fastening system with you and whomever is helping you. 
You even could take it off at the reception, that is up to you... but I think, this is YOUR day, and if you are wearing this beautiful veil on this your day, I would wear it all through out... remember, it's your day to shine!
Hope you like these ideas!!
