What’s A King’s Wedding?
Question: Is there a type of wedding ceremony that's groomsmen only (i.e. no bridesmaids)?
Answer: by The Knot
As a matter of fact there is, and it’s called a king’s wedding — both the bride and groom have male attendants (the bride’s are called bridesmen). This kind of ceremony reflects the days of marriage by capture, when the groom’s friends would escort the bride to her wedding to protect her from being whisked away by other suitors. If the bride has many brothers or male friends, this is a great idea. Don’t feel as though you can’t include any women in the ceremony, however: A female honour attendant or one bridesmaid among the bridesmen is absolutely fine!
