Question Answer

What is the historical relevance of the bridal party?

Related to Bridal

Historically, the bridesmaids surrounded the bride on her wedding day in order to ward-off any evil spirits. In theory, the spirits would be tricked and go after the bridesmaids (instead of the bride).

What happens if members of my bridal party cannot make the Rehearsal?

Related to Rehearsal

Members of a bridal party are often unable to attend, usually due to work commitments or that they simply live too far away. This is not an issue, because (after you have been to the rehearsal) you can explain the format and procedure to them prior to the wedding day.
