Congratulations on your engagement! I married an American, but we had a very tradional Greek wedding. My Koumbaros and Koumbara were my sister and her husband. She is Greek Orthodox as I am. Her husband is not. -- Here is the sticky part...We all know that the Koumboros must be Greek Orthodox, so my sister who had a very small wedding at her home had to get married in our church again in order to perform the ceremony.--This way her husband could take part as well.
My other sister served as maid of honor and my husband's brother served as best man. It worked out beautifully. My Koumbaros did the rings and the stefana, and my maid of honor and best man helped do other things. This way everyone was included.
I'm sure that your wedding will be lovely!! Good luck!
: I just got engaged to my non-Greek Orthodox girlfriend. She is planning to convert from Catholocism...
: Question on the bridal party. Can We have a Koumbaros & Koumbara while at the same time still have a best man & maid of honor?
: The Koumbarie will be my Godparents who will be flying in from Greece. But she wants to include an old childhood friend as the maid of honor. My brother can be the best man as a ceremonial match to the maid of honor. I wouldnt expect my brother to have any real responsibilities.
: How do we divie up the responsibilities? Since I have a Koumbaro what does the Koumbara do and how will that affect the Maid of Honor? It is important to her that the maid of honor is still involved.
