I posted this on FB, but I wanted to get people's thoughts here, as well.

I remember reading this as a kid, and thinking, "They must have had to come up with a lot of backstories as to how they knew each other in their 'civilian' lives."

Also, are Linda, Shayera, Diana and Dinah all bridesmaids? Did Jean not have any sisters, female cousins or close female friends?

It's Ray's side of the family.

Kara knows Jean Loring from Super-Team Family with The Flash and Supergirl.

As for back story... I remember my wedding, and nobody cared about how my friends and family knew each other. Yeah. some were acquainted and some weren't - but who cares why Diana Prince knows Barry Allen? Not as if any of the guests are going to think, "Hey! These guests all look like the Justice League!" And really... who's so famous in the Justice League that someone would wonder about their relationship to Ray Palmer? Bruce Wayne? Carter Hall? I think that's just natural.

Dunno, the few weddings I've been to,  "Oh, how do you know so-and-so?"  came up  a fair amount,.

Bruce:  "Say, Hal, I have lots and lots of money, you know.  It would be my pleasure to buy you a proper suit."

You must also remember that King Solovar of Gorilla City was there as well! He was so impressed by human wedding rituals that he brought two concepts back to Gorilla City: the "open bar" and the "Funky Chicken"! 

I kinda got the same feeling from when clark Kent married  Lois Lane, except I was wondering who knew all the DC staffers in attendance,

I don't know if Shayera was the maid of honor (since Katar was the best man) but my mother said that she would have been the matron of honor!

Your mother was correct.

Aa far as Shayera filling the role at all, it kinda sorta fits. Jean Loring and Ray Palmer were shown socialising with the Halls on a couple of occasions.

Is the guy standing between Arthur and Barry someone we're supposed to know? He's the only one I don't recognize.

That's Adam (Captain Comet) Blake who helped the Atom in his search for Jean in Super Team Family #13. He's supposed to be an honorary JLAer but this cameo was his only appearance in Justice League of America!

The Grand Comics Database entry on this issue indicates that the fellow between and behind Aquaman and Barry Allen is Adam (Captain Comet) Blake.

This can be derived from not just from the fact that Captain Comet was a honorary JLAer (DC SPECIAL # 27 [May. 1977]), but also from Comet's participation in the Atom's search for Jean (who'd gone guano-crazy, again) that ran for the last half of 1977, in SUPER-TEAM FAMILY # 11-4.

The gimmick was the Tiny Titan teamed up with various heroes over his four-issue quest for Jean. In SUPER-TEAM FAMILY # 13 (Nov., 1977), it was Aquaman and Captain Comet's turn in the barrel. Presumably, this is the connexion which put Adam Blake at the nuptials.
Oops! Philip beat me to it.

Cool. Thanks, gents.
