I think it’s kind of an imposition on your friends to try to tell them what to wear but not have them stand up as bridesmaids/groomsmen. If they are seated with your parents for the ceremony, then basically they are “guests of honor,” which is great and all, but if that’s what they are then show them the courtesy of letting them pick out their own clothes. You could maybe ask that they coordinate colors or something because you want to take a picture with all of them, but it will be annoying to them and confusing to your guests if you put them in the same dress as the bridesmaids but then have them seated while the bridesmaids are standing.

I think it is  and unrealistic to expect friends to buy a particular dress if they are not in the wedding party.

Your friends are supporting you by attending your wedding. You do not need all your close friends and family in the wedding party. You need some people in your life to attend a guests.

@s2253:  The central role of the wedding party is standing up at the wedding. If you ask them not to stand up, your friends may feel like second class citizens. If you keep the wedding party to family only, your friends will understand.
