Bridesmaid and Garcon d'Honneur

The Bride appears accompanied with her bridesmaid and the garcon d'honneur on the day of her wedding in order to confuse off evil spirits. These young couples, usually friends, younger siblings or other relatives of the bridal couple lead the wedding procession so that the evil spirits cannot recognize which one of the pretty couples is the one to be wedded. The bridesmaid and the garcon d'honneur used to wear almost the same attire as the couple. Nowadays form and color of the clothes is adjusted and matched to make the procession especially celebrative.
