How to Choose Your Wedding Party
April 9, 2017
Planning your wedding is such an exciting time within your life! You will have the opportunity to take part in delicious cake tasting and trying on dresses until you find “the one”. As you plan your big day, you will also be surrounded by your closest friends and family members, who will be assisting and supporting you along the way.
With so many people in your life, there are certainly a few who are quite close to you, that you would like included within your wedding party. However, how do you go about choosing them?
Some aspects of your wedding planning may seem a bit stressful, but they certainly don’t have to be! That’s why, here at Signature Occasions, we have gathered some tips to assist you in choosing your wedding party. If you are interested in discovering some insight, be sure to continue reading to learn more:
Careful consideration. First off, the members of your wedding party should be people that are closest to you. Often times, siblings or very close relatives are chosen, accompanied by best friends. Typically, the wedding party consists of no more than ten people, so only choose who you feel would be absolutely necessary to stand beside you. However, know that you can have as little or as many people within your party as you would like, there are no rules.
Think twice. When choosing your wedding party, you don’t have to make an immediate decision. Take some time to think about who you would like to have a role within your big day, to ensure that your decision is the right one. Also, know that being a part of your wedding will come with tasks, especially for your Maid of Honor and Best man, so you will want to have confidence that who you choose will be able to fulfill their duties.
Avoid any guilt. It is important to remember that this is your wedding! Don’t choose anyone to be within your wedding party based on guilt. Your friends and family will be happy and supportive of you on your big day regardless of if you choose them to be a member of your wedding party. So, only choose the people that you feel are most important to be within your wedding party, and not just because you think they might be upset if you don’t choose them.
