You’re engaged! There has been so much planning up to this point, but you are moving right along with the help of your planner!
At this point in our “Congratulations! You’re engaged, now what…?” series, you are approximately 8-10 months away from your magical day!
Now that you have nailed down some of the finer details, lets jump into more of the fun stuff… Choosing your wedding party!
Your wedding party is usually compiled by your very best friend along with siblings or other immediate relatives. This is not where you find a place for your entire family, but maybe a cousin or someone who has been your trusted confidant for many years. Maybe even a college roommate! This is also not the place for your new friend of five minutes.
Save yourself a little sanity and think about who has been there for you when you’ve needed a shoulder to cry on, or an ear to tell a secret to. Those are your people.
Your wedding party can be as big, or as small, as you desire. However, think of things such as time, activities, and patience when considering your party. If you are interested in a fairly quick ceremony, but you have a bridal party of 15 on each side, it may take them a minute to all walk down to the altar, and stall your speedy plans.
Remember, when asking your friends to join you in your nuptials, be sure to mull over your options. Ask yourself, “Will I be as close to this person in 10 years, as I am today?” If your answer is no, you may want to reconsider. Another final tip is to make sure that your wedding party will all get along and mesh perfectly!
