Non-Wedding Party Roles: Beyond the Bridal Party

Non-Wedding Party Roles: Beyond the Bridal Party

So, you have a wedding party, groomsmen, flower girls, parents, etc., but what about other roles in your wedding? Include close family or friends in these roles so that they are part of your special day.


Ceremony Reading

Personalize your ceremony by asking your close friend or a family member to share a passage from The Bible or a meaningful poem.

Flower Girl Alternatives

The flower girl doesn’t have to be under the age of four anymore! Good friends and family members have taken on this role in recent years, and we just LOVE this idea!


Processional Escort

Your processional escort will walk grandparents and elder family members down the aisle to their seats.



Ask your bestie to be part of the ceremony by officiating your wedding!


Unity Ceremony Participant

Include your good friends or close family members to light the candles for your unity ceremony.
