I’m not really sure, but perhaps it is a female version of an usher? If I were one of your left out friends, I’d rather do a reading than to be an “usher” (if that’s even what a hostess is?!). I would suggest talking to these friends openly and see if they want to contribute anything to the ceremony.

I’m in a similar situation that I only wanted 5 bms, and had to leave out 1 or 2 close friends and my 2 FSILs. I plan on inviting them to brunch on the day-of and also inviting them to the hair salon to either hang out or get their hair done with the BMs (I won’t be paying for their hair, just giving them the option of having it done with us).

I had 3 greeters/guest book attendants for the ceremony and reception.  They are sorority sisters and said they were incredibly honored.  I included their names in the program and all 3 mentioned me doing that and how sweet it was.

A wedding host is someone who is supposed to help set the church up, make sure things are the way they need to be for your wedding… They know who the family is, so people are seated in the right places.. They get everyone lines up so things can start to as close as poss/on time… they are to take the stress away from your day… Well at least for the church, depending on how long you have them..

My church gives me one for the church services…. I talked with her the other day, they really do know there crap!!
