I thought you were talking about the TV show!  Then I thought I must be really old if someone on these boards had never heard of it!

Never heard of the term how you’re using it.

When I opened this thread, I thought you were referring to the 80’s tv show, Golden Girls (one of my favs).

@lezlers:LOL, that is what I was thinking.

I think this is actually a great idea.  I may have to use it for the FHs sisters, I have been looking for something to do for them.

Never heard of anything like that at all and I have been to several weddings. Like the other posters, I thought you were talking about the tv show. It’s your wedding so do what you feel works best.

I know one of the blogging bees was having something like that. Ms. Hippo. I don’t remember what she called them though but they will be recognized that day.

I love the TV show, but I’m not too keen on the idea, simply because it’s a really clear indicator that they weren’t important “enough” to be bridesmaids. It’s like the consolation prize. I realize that there are a lot of interpersonal politics in picking wedding party attendants, readers, ushers, etc., and sometimes feelings are hurt (happened to me!), but I think I would feel really awkward if I were in that position. What do they do besides wear corsages? And how do they reply when someone asks what the corsage is for? I just think it’d be better to spend the money on a great girls day with your best friends regardless of the wedding, but I guess this is sort of a “to each her own thing.” You know your friends and family best, so if you guys are close like that, they may be honored. Good luck.

@ThePinkTyrant: Never heard of it, but a very interesting idea. I wish I would’ve heard of this before our wedding; and then maybe I wouldn’t have had as much drama w/ my bridesmaids. This would be something great for those of us who felt obligated to have someone be apart of their wedding party, but didn’t really want them in the wedding.

I’ve heard of a House Party. These are the people who aren’t able to be BM’s but mean just as much to you. They’re still in on the planning, are mentioned in the programs, they just aren’t able to handle the responsibilities for various reasons.

@Amaryllis, that is an excellent point. It’s also an honor to just be a guest without any duties or other awkward situations involved. It doesn’t mean that the couple thinks any less of those folks either.
