How To Choose Your Wedding Party

Choosing the right group of people to stand with you on your special day is an exciting time! It’s more than just a wedding preparation task, it’s about recognizing the relationships that have shaped your life. However, while fun, choosing your wedding party can also be filled with questions, decisions, and a bit of uncertainty. You want to recognize the people in your life, but you don’t want people to feel left out or hurt. The good news is that the wedding experts at Nanina’s In The Park are here to break down the process to make it an enjoyable experience for you.

The Roles And Responsibilities Of Wedding Party Members

Before popping the question to your wedding party, you need to understand the commitment you’re asking for. Members of your wedding party will serve as your support crew, advisors, and cheerleaders as you navigate the wedding planning process. That means they will help with planning, be there for fittings, and keep the pre-wedding vibes positive. They also might be responsible for helping through showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties. Understanding these roles will help you think about who in your life is ready and willing to take on this special job.

Matching The Wedding Party To Your Wedding Style

The scale and aesthetic of your wedding can influence how many people you include in your wedding party. A small, intimate gathering might suit just a few close friends or family members, while a larger, more extravagant affair could open the door to a bigger group. The most important thing is that your wedding party reflects the depth and breadth of your personal relationships. You should also discuss with your significant other how many people they plan to include. While there is no hard and fast rule that you must have the same number of people, it’s important to keep in mind.

Combining Emotional Connections And Practicality

When picking your crew, consider your strongest emotional bonds and who has been there for you through thick and thin. But don’t overlook practicality. Think about who’s organized, who’s a natural leader, and who can handle the pressure with a smile. These traits are golden when it comes to wedding planning and execution.

Embracing Diversity And Inclusion

Your wedding party should mirror the diversity of your life and relationships. Move beyond traditional titles and roles. Focus on the people who matter most, regardless of gender or societal expectations. This is your day, and your wedding party should be filled with people who bring joy and support to every step of the process. If you have a male best friend who has always been there for you, as a woman, you can still include the in your wedding party! It’s okay to break away from tradition to include the people that matter most to you.
