I just converted to Orthodoxy a few years ago, and have not been able to see an Orthodox wedding. However, I'm planning one and would like to know if bridesmaids, ringbearers, flowergirls are allowed. I am the only Orthodox person in my family and my fiancT's family is Catholic.
Thanks in advance,
Glory to Jesus Christ!
Phoenix, at the OCA parishes to which I have belonged, bridesmaids and ringbearers were allowed. At my elder daughter's wedding, there was a matron-of-honor, five bridesmaids, a best man, five ushers, a young male ringbearer, and a young female trainbearer. AFAIK, at least one of the official witnesses (maid-/ matron-of-honor or best man) should be Orthodox, but this requirement should be discussed with the priest who will officiate at the marriage to see if it can be waived.
May you have a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful married life!
