It’s the hardest time of the season, the time comes to draft a few key players that will be by your side when that final touchdown happens! Now, while you may have several friends, it is important to take time to process your engagement and plans. Remember…you can’t go back once they have been drafted.
Here are a few DW ideas:
Consider the size of your wedding, prior to asking. How many attendants do you need?
Remember, this is also a line-items in your budget, so be conscious
Don’t ask someone just because they asked you.
You never want to regret a decision, relationships grow apart without constant effort, be sure the chosen few will stick by your side.
Set expectations + explain those expectations
Being a part of a wedding is a big responsibility and expense. Be sure to make individuals aware prior to putting them in an uncomfortable situation.
Give them a gift, treat them to hair+makeup- you want them to look and feel beautiful too, even though it is your day.
Man of Honor + Maid of Honor
Choose who you most feel comfortable with. This is someone that has been your companion through life and knows everything about you, even the dirty laundry! Be sure to introduce the man of honor and maid of honor before, it is nice for them to get to know each other prior to that weekend.
Mix it up!
Traditionally it use to be guys on one side and ladies on the other, but modern friendships have shown that you can feel free to break the rules and mix up your bridal party.
There are several important roles at a wedding. Individuals that just didn’t make the play-off draft can still be included and feel important.
