Pride Month: Choosing Your Wedding Party
Don’t be held back by the uncertainty of who to Choose for Your Wedding Party. Choosing your party for your LGBTQ+ wedding is easier than you may think!
When considering the Bridal and Grooms party, how will you decide who to include? Who cares, just make sure they are there to support you and be there for you! Ask whoever, as long as you believe they are a true fit. You can have a man of honor, a best woman, or whatever variation you desire. This doesn’t matter! All that matters is that you are happy with your party on your big day. It all comes down to you and your personal preference.
When organizing your wedding party, don’t feel held back by ‘traditional’ wedding guidelines. For weddings today, there are not any specific standards or rules that must be followed. Just remember, when considering your invitees, don’t just ask someone because they asked you to be in their party. Be honest and understanding when choosing your party and leaving others out. This way, you can also avoid hurting anybody’s feelings.
The first step is to consider the size of your wedding. Larger weddings could usually mean a larger party, and the opposite for smaller weddings. With that in mind, you can still have as many or as few bridesmaids or groomsman as you wish. There is not a limit on who you can include. Remember, however, the quality of your party is more important than the size. Quality over quantity!
It is also crucial to remember to include the people who mean the most to your relationship. These are the people who supported you through the good, the bad, and everything in between. Your brothers, sisters and closest friends are a great place to start.
Finally, the most important aspect of your party is to do what makes you happy! Man-of-honor, best woman, or whoever you may want to include; It all comes down to what’s best for you!
