paje


Explanation:
Hola Noelia,
Si lo encontraste en una revista de bodas, seguramente el contexto es ése, aunque no tengo la plena seguridad.
En una boda el "assistant groom" es sinónimo de "page"= paje.
Mira un ejemplo tomado del Internet:

"... was awaiting her with an ***assistant groom or page*** beside him. ... her millionaire,--and all fashionable New York is going to the wedding, including yours ..."
www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext03/scrtp10.txt

page 1. paje, escudero
Simon & Schuster's Bilingual Dictionary©


paje.
1. m. Criado cuyas funciones eran las de acompañar a sus señores, asistirlos en la espera de las antesalas, atender al servicio de la mesa y otras actividades domésticas.
DRAE©

"Escojan a su corte nupcial; es decir, a los acompañantes del novio, a su dama de honor, el mejor amigo del novio, las damas, los encargados de recepción, ***el paje***. ..."
http://www.days.org/spanish/page4.html

Buena suerte y saludos del Oso ¶:^)

\"...Si la pareja no puede costear esta donación, no se les pide la donación. En este caso, se pide que la ceremonia sea muy sencilla, solamente con una pareja de padrinos, la damita y ***un paje***. La donación debe de ser dada antes de fijar la fecha de la boda. Si se cancela la ceremonia, se le devolvera la donacion a la pareja. ...\"
