|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
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!
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.
