  • Choose your numbers. First off, it is important to decide which members that you would like to have comprise your wedding party. Bridesmaids, groomsmen, Maid of Honor, Best Man, flower girl, and ring bearer are the most common roles. However, you can have as many or as little as you would like, or none at all. Traditionally, though, it is said that you should have no more than 10 members. But, is your big day, and you can have as many as you please.
  • Considerations. There are so many people within your life, some who you are probably much closer with than others. For your wedding party, consider choosing only your closest friends and family members. Such as friends you have been close with for years, as well as siblings. Narrow down your options to a select few, and be considerate of your choices.
  • No obligations! It is important that you don’t feel obligated to choose anyone to be a member of your wedding party! It is your big day, and you should do what makes you happy. Even if you were in someone else’s wedding, it doesn’t mean that they have to be in yours. Your friends and family will understand your choices, and will certainly respect you when it comes to the decisions you make in regard to your special day.
