Choosing your bridesmaids for your wedding can be a fun early part of your wedding party, but the experience can feel stressful if you are unsure who you want standing at your side. In addition to deciding on who you want to join you, you will need to know how many people you want to include in your wedding party. One important thing to remember is that the people in your wedding party can also have responsibilities during your engagement period - having people who are close to you are important, but you also want to have people you can count on for planning support.
Determining The Number Of Bridesmaids You Want In Your Wedding Party
Your wedding party size is not required to be equivalent to the size of your overall guest list. If you want to have a large turnout, but prefer to keep the number of people with you small, this is something you can certainly do. However, if you are hosting a smaller wedding event, a larger wedding party may feel inappropriate. One thing you can do is take time to think about how many people you feel close enough with to invite into your bridal party, and see how close that list is to a number you feel close to using in your group.
Choosing A Maid Or Matron Of Honor
The choice of your maid or matron of honor can be difficult, particularly if you have several friends or family members you are especially close to. It is important to think about how much work you might need from someone in this position. After all, the maid or matron of honor can provide support during much of your planning, and can take the lead on certain pre-wedding celebrations. In other words, you should think about who is up for handling these responsibilities, as well as who you feel close enough to in order to welcome them as your maid or matron of honor.
How Should I Ask Everyone To Join My Wedding Party?
While you are not required to take a special approach to welcoming people into your wedding party, some brides look forward to inviting their bridesmaids in a unique and fun way. Some brides have found success by creating invitations packed with gifts or homemade treats, while others have turned the invitation into its own event. If you have several bridesmaids who live far from you, it may be difficult to make special arrangements - in this situation, you can certainly choose a more conservative approach.
