                                                                          Grace Kelly and her bridal party


       You have announced your engagement, and the planning is starting and ALL OF YOUR GIRLS & FAMLIY  are waiting to see who is going to make up your bridal party. You can feel the walls getting closer, your mother keeps saying that you have to ask cousin Gloria, but you honestly don’t even remember a cousin Glory. Your friends, are already talking about the fact that they will not wear a chartuese dress and you are ready to run screaming into the night.  So I thought I would give you a few guidelines, that might help !

 

     The first question you and your groom to be should talk about is the size of your bridal party.  There are no set hard fast rules here, you can have one or more than a dozen.  Most wedding planners say that the rule here is one groomsmen and one bridesmaid per 50 guest. But you or your groom can still have uneven number of attendants. 

 

 One thing to consider is having more in your bridal party is not always merrier. Yes this your day, but that doesn’t mean it won’t bring out EVERYONE’S  Opinion here is one quote I love “ In other words, you'll need to get more people to agree on a dress or decide on a bridal shower date. And if you're on a limited budget, think about who has to pay for all those bridesmaids bouquets. That's right -- you.”

 

    Remember we are now adults are there are no backsies, this means that just because Sally asked you to be her wedding 5 years ago and you all have hardly spoken since then, doesn’t mean you have to ask her to be in your wedding. This also goes for cousin Gloria, who’s wedding you where in when you where 10. 

 

   This does bring us to an important point Blood really is thinker than water. If you are close to family members or if your Fiancee is chances  are you will regret not having them as part of your bridal party and a bonus is you get barraging power now with your mother and future more in law ( yes we mentioned that this is YOUR DAY, but you have to share).

 

      Here are a few fun items to remember, not all bridesmaid need to be female, if your best friend is a man, there is no reason why he can’t be in the wedding. Same goes for you fiancé! Also don’t forget their are other roles your friends and family can take part in, a reading, a song, seat guests, even a dance!
