• Typically, the selection of groomsmen and bridesmaids are all up to the choice of the groom and bride. For example, a Groom will generally choose his best friend to be his best man, or may even choose his brother or father. The groomsmen are typically made up of closest friends and in some cases family members. The same goes for bridesmaids...usually sisters, other close family members or close friends make up the party. Like the groom, the bride will usually choose her best friend to be her maid of honor, or in some cases her sister or her mother. Sometimes a young child, usually male, on the groom's side of the family is chosen as the ring-bearer, though the child may only be the implied ring-bearer, in that he holds a pillow with two false rings while the groom's real ring-bearer hands him the real ring. For example, my best friend is getting married next year, and he has chosen me to be his ring bearer. I will be keeping the ring and will give it to him when it is time for the rings. There will not be a child to bear the rings. It is all a matter of preference, but in most traditional cases the groom's party and the bride's party are all close friends.
