I don’t think so – doesn’t make any sense as the bridesmaid stands with you on the day.  Why not just put down an acknowledgement of their support in your program if you are having a program?

How about letting them know they are “honorary bridesmaids”? My two best friends and I used that term jokingly in the months leading up to my wedding, as I didn’t have a bridal party but they did give me a shower, bachelorette party, and gave a toast at the reception. You could give them a thank you gift and a nice note.

I agree with PP. The honorary bridesmaid title is super cute and still includes them.

IA with above comments- it’s really cute and includes gives them the opportunity to be involved in your wedding even if they can’t make it to the actual wedding. Friendship trumps distance ๐Ÿ™‚

Sindu :  I dont think they would be bridesmaids but they are still your friends and can be involved in the festiveness. They dont need a title.  If you want a title you could call them your bridal entourage.

blackrosegirl : Entourage has an entirely different connotation than honorary bridesmaid or long distance bridesmaid- it just screams entitled reality star celebutante. Definitely don’t use ‘entourage’ OP.

By definition, they aren’t bridesmaids if they are not at the wedding. Your friends don’t need a made up title for them to know how much you appreciate their friendship or to know that they would standing up for you under other circumstances. I’d write a heartfelt note or host a luncheon to thank them for all their help and to tell them what they mean to you.
