Who’s in Your Wedding Party?

Who’s in Your Wedding Party?

Congratulations!  He popped the question.  You said yes. You’ve posted the infamous ring pic on Instagram (not before calling mom and dad, I hope).

Now you’re ready to start wedding planning and selecting your bridal party is a pretty big decision that you will have to make.  However, it’s not one that needs to be made right away. Take some time and figure out who’s going to keep you sane when everyone has an opinion to share? Who’s going to be you’re A-Team?

Here are a couple tips to consider when choosing the members of your bridal party.

  • Include family & friends that support your relationship
  • Choose someone that genuinely wants the best for both of you and someone who understands marriage. Choose a friend that you can talk to when things get rough and you need a reminder of the vows you took.
  • Be up front about your expectations
  • There’s more to being in a wedding than just throwing on a pretty dress or a snazzy tux. Let you’re A-Team know just how much money and time needs to be invested in your wedding and the festivities leading up to the big day.

The men and women that will be standing by your side on your wedding day have a lot of responsibilities on their hands and you definitely need someone who’s going to stick it out and be there through the good, bad, and ugly.

We know how much you love our Tuesday Tips and Fun Fact Friday so we’re just gonna get down to the really nitty gritty. Each week we’ll dig a little deeper and give you the full story behind these tips.

Make sure you join us next week for more insight on the roles and responsibilities for each member of the bridal party.

I have a huge family with lots of kids, but I don’t want children at the wedding. Am I being mean?


It’s your wedding and you get to make the decisions about who’s attending the celebration. That means if you don’t want to risk having a kid stick their tiny little fingers in the cake before the photographer gets a picture; it’s your call. However, it would definitely make things easier if you had a reputable child care provider available during the festivities.  It gives parents the security of knowing that they can let their hair down and have fun without their kids hanging on them. Yet, they aren’t too far away if mommy and daddy just want to pop in for a quick check in.
