Choosing your wedding party is one of the most important parts of planning your wedding. But it can actually be a really difficult decision. Deciding who to include and where to draw the line can be agonizing, and you probably worry about hurting the feelings of people you care about. Here are a few tips to help you when choosing your wedding party.
1. Think, Then Think Again
It should be obvious that once you invite someone to be part of your wedding party, there is no going back. When you get engaged, you might be so excited that you start asking all your good friends to be bridesmaids. But before asking anyone, think long and hard…or you might end up with 22 bridesmaids. Who is likely to be your friend for life? You’ll need people you can rely on to play certain roles, so make sure the people you choose are both dependable and willing.
