THE BRIDESMAIDS – Questions _ Answers To Those Difficult Situations.
Q. My bridesmaids all want to wear black dresses – I thought that black was off limits for weddings, what is your opinion?
A. Sure, why not? Unless you have a personal objection to the bridesmaids wearing black. Black is a color that looks great on all skin tones, is easily dressed up or down with the right accessories and will be a dress they can wear again. An added bonus is that black hides all types of figure flaws and that should make everybody happy!
Q. Do the flower girl and ring bearer attend the rehearsal dinner?
A. There’s no strict etiquette. Whether or not the younger attendants are invited to the rehearsal dinner is up to you and the hosts of the party, often the Groom’s parents. It is appropriate to invite her to the dinner, since she will be at the rehearsal and they are part of the wedding party, especially if her parents will be there, too! If the dinner will be held late in the evening or at a restaurant too challenging for a child, perhaps it would be better to arrange for a baby sitter and let her have a good nights sleep.
Q. I’m a bridesmaid, and the Bride’s baby sister is the flower girl. Who is responsible for looking after her?
A. For the day of the wedding, the bride may ask you to check her sister’s appearance before she goes down the aisle, smooth her dress, fix her hair , etc. You might also have to take her to the restroom a couple of times. As for the reception, we think it is the parents responsibility. Be sure to ask what the expectations of the bride are first.
Q. Does the flower girl or ring bearer stand in the receiving line?
A. Not usually, but if she’s daughter or son of one of the newlyweds, then they should definitely be included. This is a big day for them, too.
Q. Is it proper for the flower girls to sit at the head table or should they sit with their parents?
A. Young children in the wedding party (under 12) generally sit with their parents at the reception. It is much easier for the parents to control what they are eating and it is less distracting fore the guests. If the flower girl is the bride’s daughter, then by all means she should sit at the head table.
