Wedding Wise: Who will I ask to be in my wedding party?

Posted by: Judy Joubert

Many factors shed light on who you ask to be in your wedding party.  Best Man, Maid of Honor, Bride's Maids and Groom's Men.  How many is too many?  This will depend upon your budget as well.  Attendants will need flowers, and a special gift for each is traditional. Remember to consider what the cost will be to them.   The dress or tuxedo rental can be significant on top of traveling, lodging and meals.  If budget is a concern, consider choosing one witness to stand with you, or even none!  It is all about the two of you!   You can always designate any two witnesses to sign the license.  Make your special VIP feel special by giving them a small significant task. Then no one will feel left out!

Have a good friend who is the opposite sex from you?  Easily, they can stand on your side. Bride's Men and Groom's Woman are very typical theses days. As well, No need to have an even number of attendants for the Bride & Groom.  So many decisions and you barely have started!
