Wenning's Wedding Tip Wednesday
Selecting the Squad
Not sure who to invite to be in your bridal party? Here are some tips to help make the process a little easier!
All month long we will be discussing tips for selecting your Bridal Party to help you make one of the most important decisions about your wedding. This week we are going to discuss who to ask and how many people should be in your Bridal Party.
What should be one of the easiest decisions when planning your wedding can become one of the most stressful, especially if you are indecisive about who to ask to be in your wedding party. You likely have a long list of friends and family to consider and may be wondering who to ask, so here are some basic tips on selecting the members of your party.
The first people to consider are those who have always supported your relationship from the beginning and have the closest relationship to you and your partner. Important members to consider should also be those who you keep regular friendships with and have the closest relationships to. It is also quite important to take into consideration the ability for these people to participate in your bridal party as well.
The great news is that there are no specifications or wrong answers on how many people there should be in your bridal party. Keep in mind, however, that the more people you ask, the more difficult it may be to have all invited members of your party to participate in your wedding.
If you and your spouse-to-be don’t agree on the number of people to ask, remember that the number of bridesmaids to groomsmen does not necessarily have to be equal. Also, if you are a bride and want your brother, guy best friend, or whoever it may be, to be on your side, go for it!
There are no strict rules when selecting your bridal party, so be sure that whatever you do, it makes you and all members of the party happy!
