Why are there bridesmaids?
Historically, a bridesmaid was used as purely a witness for the marriage, as an audience of more than 10 people was thought to warn away bad spirits. However, later on in history a large group of bridesmaids provided an opportunity for showing off the family's social status and wealth. Today, the number of bridesmaids in a wedding party is dependent on many variables, including a bride's preferences, the size of her family, and the number of attendants her partner would like to have as well. They are used today to generally assist the Bride, making sure the day runs smoothly and possibly to help in the preparation and organisation of the wedding.

An honorary bridesmaid is listed on the program but does not stand near the bride during the ceremony.
Answer . I was in a wedding this summer and the bride had her brother as a brides'man'...anything goes in this modern world!
More than that, a bridesmaid and/or maid-of-honor serves a practical purpose. During the hectic time of planning a wedding, she is a confidant, advice. A bridesmaid's dutie…s might include: . helping the bride shop for her dress and bridesmaids' dresses . when asked , giving advice on decorations, favors, music, and more . helping the maid of honor to plan a bridal shower, and, if appropriate, chipping in for the costs of food, decorations, or venue . helping to plan a bachelorette party (this the bridesmaids may pay for or split the cost with the other attendees) . helping the bride dress (and stay calm) before the ceremony . providing moral support at all times . telling others where the couple is registered and other details, such as when they will return from their honeymoon, where to send gifts, and any name changes. . being useful at the wedding reception. The couple may ask you to help direct guests to the guestbook, assist with a special moment, make sure that vendors have arrived, or do crisis management. You might also want to stick around after the reception and make sure things are cleaned up and wedding presents secured. . being social. Be sure to talk to as many guests as you can, making them feel warmly welcomed. If there's a dance floor, help get the party going! . consider throwing (or helping to pitch in for) a day-after brunch. These events are great to help the couple catch up with out-of-town guests, and have a more relaxed environment to socialize in.
This is generally up to the bride. The bridesmaids should be the brides closest friends so they will probably be around her age group. I would say anywhere from around 14 and …up but that is just an opinion.
You do not ask to be a bridesmaid. It is up to the bride to choose who she wants in her wedding party such as maid of honor and bridesmaids.
A junior bridesmaid is someone that is a minor, but they are still acting bridesmaid.
yes they would have many bridesmaids up to 15
14 years and up
Actually, I think it is rated R, and it is because there is quite a lot of swearing and there are a couple of sex scenes.
Bridesmaids (2011) is rated R for strong sexuality and language.
See since it's in theathers right now not alot of sites will carry it. You can look it up on google but you will probably have to pay some money for it.

A bridesmaid does the most important job in planning and executing a wedding. They are supposed to submit to any demands made by the bride. They are also the bride's rock, and… calm them and bring them back down to Earth when a bride becomes overwhelmed or a bridezilla.
