Groomsmen. The groomsmen are the male counterparts to the bridesmaids and, as such, they take on many of the same duties. They are usually close friends or relatives of the groom and will be involved in many of the events in the lead-up to the wedding, such as the bachelor party.
What is the groom’s party called?
The dinner was seen as the groom’s last chance to entertain his friends as a single man; after the wedding, dinner parties at his home would always be presided over by his wife in her role as hostess. Common slang names for this event are bachelor party, stag do, or bucks’ night in different parts of the world.
What are the grooms bridesmaids?
Much like bridesmaids, groomsmen are the groom’s closest family members and friends—the ones he has chosen to be by his side as he watches his bride walk down the aisle. Typically, the bride, her Maid of Honor, and her bridesmaids are the ones who are most involved in the wedding planning and activities.
Should the sister of the groom be a bridesmaid?
Are you automatically expected to ask your fiancé’s sister to be a bridesmaid? The short answer to whether or not you have to include anyone, even a family member, in your wedding party is no. This is your wedding, and you and your partner should do whatever feels right.
Do the best man and maid of honor walk together?
The maid of honor walks alone since the best man is already at the altar. Both the ring bearer and flower girl walk alone, and in that order. Optionally, they can walk together if you prefer.
