Choosing who’s going to stand by your side on your special day is a daunting task. I remember choosing my wedding party in the fall of 2017 after Zach and I got engaged and feeling torn, it was a mentally straining task. Remember that the people you choose to stand by your side have a major responsibility. They will need to sacrifice evenings, days, and even weekends to help you plan/celebrate your upcoming marriage. They will be the deciding factor if the wedding planning process will be a breeze or extremely frustrating. Be very selective with who you choose. If you’re having difficulty deciding who you choose to be in your wedding party, I developed a system that can help.
What is the system I made you ask? It’s a series of statements. But before you start answering the statements, I’ll need you to write down every single person you’re considering being part of your wedding party, this includes family members. Read each statement then put a check-mark next to the names to which that statement applies. Ready? Here we go!
After the check-marks have been made, I think it’ll be obvious who you should ask to be in your party. Remember, it’s okay to invite friends and family as guests instead of having them in your wedding party. If they’re truly there for you and your fiancé, they should be honored to be part of your special day no matter what.
My son is going to be getting married, and he wants some help choosing who’s going to be at his wedding. It makes sense that choosing the right people would be important. I’ll make sure that he knows to work with his wife for that.
