My fiance and I each have 6 people standing up in our wedding party, and we had to cut it off before it got out of control. There are a handful of other friends and family members that we’d like to honor as well, so I was wondering if the Bees had any ideas! What are some other honors we could give?
• People to hand out programs? (Is this more of a job than an honor?)

@sunsetchristy: I think the program hand outs is more of a chore but someone has to do it. The other honors are good. I really can’t think of anything to add to your list.

Not everyone will think that getting a B-list job is an honour, no matter how you go about it.
I would invite who you like to do the jobs that you actually need filled, and not worry about getting everyone special to you a “special” job.
If you really want to honour someone get them a gift, write them a nice note, say something nice about them in a speech, sit them somewhere special, get them a corsage so they stand out etc.
Program person is definitely bunk though, and I would skip that at all costs. The others could be ok. But people will still know they are the B team.

There is nothing negative about the role of a guest. You have no responsibilities and are free to just enjoy the wedding.
