Due to relationships we have with our wedding party, Fiance and I are considering trying to come up with something else to call them. Fiance isn’t particularly closer to one or the other of his GMs so he doesn’t want to pick one to be his Bridesmaid or Best Man. I on the other hand am having a hard time deciding on who should be my Maid/Matron of Honor (sister, best friend from college or best friend I’ve had since I was 3). Someone suggested just Grooms Attendants and Brides Attendants, but isn’t that the same? Isn’t wedding attendants and wedding party the same thing?
P.S. My mom thinks I still should ask my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, regardless, but in the program it’ll just say attendant. Really? Isn’t that silly?!

I don’t think you have to have a best man, maid of honor. You could just have a "bridal Posse", or all bridesmaid and groomsmen. "attendants" works as well!

How do you feel about calling everyone the "Bridal Party" or "Wedding Party"?

I’m calling my best friend and my cousin my "ladies of honor". Sometimes I refer to them as by "best women" as well. For some reason, I don’t like the terms MOA and Bridesmaid or Best Man, but that’s just me and I’m a bit quirky! I love "bridal posse" though, I think I’m going to start using that too!

HAHA Bridal Posse! I wanted to do a fun little "Will you be my bridesmaid/MOH?" Poem or something on a pretty card so if it said bridal posse I’m sure that would bring smiles 🙂 My mother seems to think that it will hurt my sister’s feelings if I don’t ask her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. I was hers but was basically ignored and not included the entire day as part of the "wedding party"—yeah, don’t get me started, it hurt. Like I told her, it’s just a title and if people aren’t really upholding the whole title roles anymore, who cares?!

B/c we are having mixed genders on both sides, we listed: Bride’s Attendants and Groom’s Attendants. For family members, we put the relationship (e.g. Bride’s sister, Groom’s cousin etc). We do have a best man, maid of honor (friend), and matron of honor (sister), so I listed that next to their name…but otherwise I did not put any add’l title next to their names. I think it’s okay not to have the honorary titles if you don’t feel there is anyone you’d give them to.
You can also just write: "Bride’s Party" and "Groom’s Party".
