@KatieBklyn:  A bridesmaid is a non-catholic thing, it’s just an american-english tradition. 

I’m from Spain, about everyone here is Catholic and we don’t even HAVE bridesmaids… The whole concept in non existing. it has nothing to do with religion, really. I’ll be having bridesmaids as something “fun”, but no one really gets it, they think it’s somewhat goofy. hehe

So I don’t think the priest would have any problem with that.

There’s no formal requirement to even have “–of honor’s” so I’m sure most priests wouldn’t mind, but, like most things, I’m also sure that there’s going to be at least one priest somewhere who objects. Just ask.

I was a bridesmaid in a Catholic wedding with a man of honor – I don’t think there was any issue in the planning!

The only requirement is that there be at least two Christian witnesses – no gender is specified. ๐Ÿ™‚
