Deciding who your bridal party will be should be one of the very first decisions made because your inner circle is going to be by your side from the moment you start planning your wedding until the moment you step into the getaway car!
– Understand the traditional members of the wedding party (maid of honor, bridesmaids, best man, groomsmen, flower girl, and ring bearer) and decide who you want to fulfill those roles.
– Choose the number of attendants that fit your budget. Adding more attendants will increase your expenses.
– Once you have chosen your bridesmaids and groomsmen, invite the whole group to a social gathering to discuss the wedding and share your vision.
– Sometimes awkward situations arise, for example, when someone technically belongs in the wedding but doesn’t fit the style, budget or personality of the wedding. One solution is to honor this person with a different role in the wedding ceremony.
