- Wedding: September 2012
I have 3 bridesmaids (two friends and future sister-in-law) and 5 groomsmen in my wedding. i direct my own dance company and I have three members who have become very close friends to me this past year. All three have been in several weddings and have always complained to me that they have to buy so many dresses. So, instead of asking them to be my bridesmaids, I thought it would be nice to include them by asking them to be usherettes. This way I can ask them to wear their own black dress and I will add a hairpiece/sash that is the same color of the bridesmaid dress. Since we are all professional dancers they told me they want to choreograph a dance for me and my fiance at our wedding reception.
I want them to feel as much of a bridesmaid as possible. Does anyone have a creative name I could call them that isn’t “usherette” maybe, “dancerette” or something of the sort without sounding too cheesy???
