How to Choose Your Wedding Party

When you're planning your wedding, a big part of the fun is including your closest family members and friends to celebrate with you, and that starts with putting together your wedding party.

Here are some tips on selecting who to honor by giving them an extra-special role in your upcoming wedding:

Start With Your Siblings
Make sure to include your siblings in your wedding party (unless there's a good reason to leave them out). Brothers and sisters who are close in age can serve as groomsmen and bridesmaids, while much younger siblings can serve as junior ushers, flower girls, or even ring bearers.

Consider Cousins, Aunts, and Uncles
If you're tight with members of your extended family, consider including them in your wedding party. This can even include aunts and uncles, especially if they're close in age to you.

Ask Your Closest Friends
Once you've included members from your immediate family, think about which friends you'd like to have to stand up with you while you take your vows. This person could be a longtime childhood friend, your college roommate, or someone else who you really want to share your big day with, in an extra-special way.

Once you've narrowed down a list of who you'd like in your wedding party, there are a few more points to consider:

Think About Reliability
The last thing you want is added stress on your wedding day, so be sure to choose wedding party members you can count on to follow through with dress fittings, be there for the rehearsal, and most of all, show up on your wedding day!

Avoid Drama
If your picks include a potential bridesmaid and usher who have recently had a bad break-up; a cousin who's always been eyeing up your husband-to-be; or anyone else who might cause drama on your big day, leave them off your list.
