Why are there bridesmaids?
Historically, a bridesmaid was used as purely a witness for the marriage, as an audience of more than 10 people was thought to warn away bad spirits. However, later on in history a large group of bridesmaids provided an opportunity for showing off the family's social status and wealth. Today, the number of bridesmaids in a wedding party is dependent on many variables, including a bride's preferences, the size of her family, and the number of attendants her partner would like to have as well. They are used today to generally assist the Bride, making sure the day runs smoothly and possibly to help in the preparation and organisation of the wedding.

Struggling to find the perfect attendant dresses while not completely blowing your bridesmaid's budget is a tough one. On one hand, you want the day to be absolutely perfect and so beautiful as to never be forgotten. On the other hand, you know that these dresses may only be worn once, and it's hard… to spend a fortune on something so frivolous. One good way to appease your budget (or your bridesmaid's, if they're going to pay for the dresses) is to shop for the dresses during or especially just after the holidays. The key, though, is to not look in expensive bridal salons for the dresses. Try your local department store's formal wear department, or even catalogues. Not only can you find absolute steals on bridesmaid dresses, but often you might be able to find just the perfect design and color, while still choosing a dress that your bridesmaids can wear to other formal-type occasions. In addition, many of the dress designs in department stores are incredibly similar to those you'd find in a bridal salon, and no one will ever be the wiser. (MORE)
An honorary bridesmaid is listed on the program but does not stand near the bride during the ceremony.
Sure, why not - if they are your friends, why should you rejectthem? Just make sure there are comfortable with it.
Answer . Of course. In some instances the Best Man and Matron of Honor are a married couple. Same can be true for the rest of the attendants, except for the children, of course.
Answer . I was in a wedding this summer and the bride had her brother as a brides'man'...anything goes in this modern world!
Bowing Out of Being a Bridesmaid Our users share their opinions: . You could always be a lady and go to the bride and tell her for personal reasons you can't be a bridesmaid for her. And that she had better ask someone else. Don't delay this so that she has to do this at the last moment, but… do it now before she finds herself stuck. . Honesty is always nice. So is sticking to your word whenever possible. (MORE)
More than that, a bridesmaid and/or maid-of-honor serves a practical purpose. During the hectic time of planning a wedding, she is a confidant, advice. A bridesmaid's duties might include: . helping the bride shop for her dress and bridesmaids' dresses . when asked , giving advice on decoratio…ns, favors, music, and more . helping the maid of honor to plan a bridal shower, and, if appropriate, chipping in for the costs of food, decorations, or venue . helping to plan a bachelorette party (this the bridesmaids may pay for or split the cost with the other attendees) . helping the bride dress (and stay calm) before the ceremony . providing moral support at all times . telling others where the couple is registered and other details, such as when they will return from their honeymoon, where to send gifts, and any name changes. . being useful at the wedding reception. The couple may ask you to help direct guests to the guestbook, assist with a special moment, make sure that vendors have arrived, or do crisis management. You might also want to stick around after the reception and make sure things are cleaned up and wedding presents secured. . being social. Be sure to talk to as many guests as you can, making them feel warmly welcomed. If there's a dance floor, help get the party going! . consider throwing (or helping to pitch in for) a day-after brunch. These events are great to help the couple catch up with out-of-town guests, and have a more relaxed environment to socialize in. (MORE)
They stand up next to the bride. The maid/matron of honor holds the bouquet for the bride, so she is closest to the bride.

This is generally up to the bride. The bridesmaids should be the brides closest friends so they will probably be around her age group. I would say anywhere from around 14 and up but that is just an opinion.
organising hen do welcome guests on the big day! help the bride with invitations organise venue make sure the brides outfit is okay

You can have your hair whatever way you like it. To my dad's wedding I am going to have my hair up in a bun with beads and a tiara. I am 12 years old. But it depends on your hair. If you have really short hair like a few inches above your shoulders then just wear a tiara. Ask your local hairstylist …what would work best for you! (MORE)

Usually someone younger than the rest of the bridal party (such as a pre-teen or young teen sister or cousin), but someone who is too old to be a flower girl or miniature bride.
Necklaces with their initials on it are a good way to show your appreciation for their involvement in your wedding - check out jewelties.com
A nice necklace is a good gift, pair of earrings or something personal that you know they would like are nice gifts. If you have a theme wedding you could do something in your theme or colors. Another good idea would be a care package that they can use on the day of the wedding or bridal shower; f…or example a beauty basket with some bottles of lotion, moisturizer, comb and mirror combo and some scented candles or aromatherapy oils. You can also put in some cosmetics if you want. A spa service isn't so bad as well. You can even enjoy this with your bridesmaids. (MORE)
several of her attendents were Clemintine Hambro-a nursery school charge of Dianas that was the great-granddaughter of Winston Churchil Sarah-the daughter of Princess Margaret Charles distant cousin as well
Bridesmaids are dont have to be married.They can, though. But, Bridesmadens, are married. And so are Madens of Honor.
With modern weddings of today yes, your daughter could not only be one of your bridesmaids, but your Maid of Honor if you so decided. What a lovely thought and congratulations!
A junior bridesmaid can be put in charge of serving punch or making sure guests sign the guestbook.
You do not ask to be a bridesmaid. It is up to the bride to choose who she wants in her wedding party such as maid of honor and bridesmaids.
A junior bridesmaid is someone that is a minor, but they are still acting bridesmaid.
The commonly-used masculine noun equivalent to bridesmaid(s) is groomsman or groomsmen . You could also refer to them as bride's (or groom's) attendants. A non-gender-specific term is wedding attendant.

Actually, I think it is rated R, and it is because there is quite a lot of swearing and there are a couple of sex scenes.
There were five f them if you count pippa. their names were Lady louise windsor, eliza lopes, grace van cutsem and margarita armstronge Jones
See since it's in theathers right now not alot of sites will carry it. You can look it up on google but you will probably have to pay some money for it.
Yes. For a lot of sex stuff, language and drug use. Hope you like it! :)
Don't know that she had that kind of wedding to George San Pietro on December 31, 1990
The building used for external shots of the apartment in Bridesmaids is located in Milwaukee on Kinnickinnic at Homer.

You can dry some if you want to preserve the memories, or you can just throw them away.

The title of the movie is "Bridesmaids" with an "s" at the end. I have not seen it, but it was Directed by Paul Feig, who created the show "Freaks and Geeks", which is a beloved show in the comedy nerd community. Kristen Wig and Maya Rudolph are also very popular from SNL. The movie was received …well among comedy fans, and word-of-mouth helped create a buzz around it when it was in theaters. (MORE)
Yes they do most of the time have bridesmaids. It depends on if the bride wants it.But it is aloud
It is rated PG-13 because of the language. Also because of drinking or smoking. There is also some inappropriate dialogue.
This is definitely an opinion question, but I am the wedding coordinator for my church. Generally, one leads off with the junior bridesmaid, then the "regular" bridesmaids, maid or matron of honor, the the ring-bearer and flower-girl just before the bride. This is not set in stone. For example, if t…he junior bridesmaid is the big sister of younger attendants, then put her after the other bridesmaids (but before the maid/matron of honor) so she can help keep them calm and focused. If your bridesmaids are walking in with escorts, the junior bridesmaid can go before or after if she's paired up with someone. If she's not paired up, then I'd put her first. (MORE)

The bride is the one who gets married. A bride is a woman getting married. A bridesmaid is a brides assistant, similar to a groom's best man.
No, a bridesmaid and a maid of honor are not the same thing. A maid of honor is a higher role than that of a bridesmaid; consider a maid of honor to be for the bride what the best man is for the groom. The maid of honor is typically responsible for assisting the bride with anything during the weddin…g planning process and is most notable for planning and paying for the bachelorette party. The maid of honor is also responsible for helping with the bridal shower (though bridesmaids are expected to help with the bridal shower, too). Finally, the maid of honor is responsible for making a speech at the wedding reception. (MORE)

You would have to check with your pastor on this, it would depend on the religion of the people getting married, what type of service it was, and other factors, check with your pastor or your confessor.
A bridesmaid does the most important job in planning and executing a wedding. They are supposed to submit to any demands made by the bride. They are also the bride's rock, and calm them and bring them back down to Earth when a bride becomes overwhelmed or a bridezilla.
There are a few places where one can rent jewellery for a bridesmaid. This includes going to high end jewellery stores, as well as pawnbrokers and other people who specialise in jewellery loans.
