Planning a wedding can be a very involved task, and so is figuring out who is supposed to do what! Here is a brief summary of the most common Protestant Christian wedding day roles. (Keep in mind that most roles can be played by either gender, and by as many people as you want.)


Mother of the Bride

The mother of the bride may serve as your guest list moderator, reception hostess.
