What is a House Party?

What is a House Party?

You all saw a couple of weeks ago how Aaron and I asked our groomsmen & bridesmaids to be a part of our wedding. (If you missed it, click here.) While we asked these ladies and gentlemen to stand by our sides on the big day, we also asked four of my lovely girl-friends to be in our House Party. I made cute little boxes for them with nail polish and earrings; I also had a cute card that asked them to walk along-side me while I plan our big day. To my surprise, the response I received from all four of the ladies was, “what’s a House Party?”! *insert shocked face emoji here* So today I decided that I’m going to share with you all what a house party is because apparently if you live north of the Mason-Dixon Line you don’t know about it!

So what is a House Party? According to SouthernWeddings.com and TheKnot.com, a house party is a solution to a growing – growing – growing bridal party. “Similar to the standard ‘attendant’ title, members of a house party are often assigned wedding day tasks like manning the guest book, handing out programs, serving cake, reading during the ceremony, or just assisting the bride on her big day. They can also be involved in helping with the bachelorette party and bridal shower, or just attending. Some house party members aren’t assigned any duties at all, but simply included because the bride wants to honor her relationships. The only thing a house party traditionally does not do is stand at the altar with the bride.” So the house party is just as much a part of the wedding as the bridal party, they just help to ‘host’ the ceremony and assist the bride, similar to an usher.

In our house party, the gals will be wearing solid pink dresses to correspond with my killer shoes! Stay tuned for next week when I reveal what those suckers look like! :)

While I was in school at Saint Mary’s College of CA, I had the pleasure of being introduced to The Yes Girls Events & I immediately knew it was something I wanted to be a part of! I loved that they were helping men bring their special question to life. After graduation, I finally had the opportunity to become a “Yes Girl”. I couldn’t ask for a more exciting job & I’m so blessed to be a part of this company.
