Typically you needed permission from your family to get married in those days. More so from the women that got married but also the men if they were considered minors. A minor was usually someone who was less than 30 years old, and never married before. I am guessing that's what the sponsors were for. So for example if the father had passed away an older brother could be a sponsor.
