House parties are more typical in the south. House party ladies may do some things like cut cake and serve punch (I did this once, it sucked!), hand out programs, pass out flowers, run errands and take care of little stuff for the bride on the wedding day (and before). They don’t typically stand up at the wedding like bridesmaids, but I have seen some brides that ask their house party to wear on particular color.

Thanks for the article!!  I didn’t know of this “house party” but I would have to agree, my house party has been much better than my wedding party with helping.  It makes me regret not asking my house party to be in the wedding.

I say turn to those who support and help!  My house girls are getting better thank you gifts than my two BMs because they have done more and meant more than the others and I want to thank them accordingly.

Interesting….never heard of it. I’m from the south and been to and in a lot of southern weddings and never ever heard of it but you learn something new everyday. Thanx for the clarification.

Thanks for the link, prncssDva! I have never heard of a house party before. I think it is a pretty cool idea!

Thanks for enlightening me!
