The bride and groom can constitute, if their entourage is propitious, a pretty procession composed of children: nephews, nieces, godchildren, cousins, boyfriends …
and even their own children (3 out of 10 attend their parents’ wedding). To better organize this pleasant ritual, it will be necessary to choose children from 4 to 10 years old, the older ones supervising the small troop. Previously, the grooms will have explained to the children what is expected of them; in general, they assume this role by showing a sense of responsibility and amazing solemnity!
The children of honor are not present for the emotional touch, they have a specific role to play during the ceremony. If two of them open the procession by placing themselves in front of the bride on her father’s arm at the entrance of the church, the others follow behind her to support her train. At the end of the ceremony, we find them before the couple, their little bouquet in hand.
Their outfit is in harmony with that of the bride, but nothing prevents the originality. To get out of the classic smock dress or the frilled shirt, you can choose a bucolic or regional theme: marine costumes, Provençal fabric … For the bridesmaids, very popular in the countries of the country, the it is customary for them to be dressed in identical dresses to accompany the bride to the altar of her new life.
