How have you all decided on your wedding party? I've got a lot of family members trying to make me have certain family. who i don't want. will also make my wedding party too big!!
Hi we have made the decision to only have 4 in our wedding party :)
We've stuck to our two kids that's it, otherwise their would be loads!!
We've made the decision to please ourselves and not care what anyone else thinks haha! It's already made things a lot easier and people get the idea eventually that really it's your day so no one else should be dictating it for you X i'm having my best friend as maid of honour, my fiances brother as best man and my two brothers will be in our wedding party as well. Until the rest of our budget has been allocated we wont be asking anyone else. Hope this helps Xx
I have my little sister as MOH and my other little sister and 2 closest friends as bridesmaids xx
At the moment (although I may change my mind) I've got my sisters and my daughters, so 4 bridesmaids. I have so many first cousins, nieces and nephews on my partners side I just can't justify choosing between them all xx
Best friend. Don't want anyone else
Don't get bullied into having somebody you don't want and don't ask anybody because you feel you should. Please believe me on this. I've just ended up my H2B family not coming to the wedding because I asked his sister to be a BM because I felt I should and it horrendously backfired. Ask who YOU want and explain nicely that it's your day if anybody gets upset xx
I had 2 friends as bridesmaids, his brother and best mate as best men, his friend and my brother as ushers. His other brother designed and made my dress and we also asked his sister and niece to do readings because we wanted them involved too but only bridesmaid, best men and parents were at the top table! At the end of the day you need to choose who you want to be included, it's your day and no one has the right to tell you otherwise! Good luck! x
I had my friend as my MOH, my sister lives to far and decided she would just attend as a guest so she wasn't stressing me out over dress fittings, my brother was my husbands best man ( husbands choice) and my son and nephew and daughter were page boys and flower girl. I decided to stick to sibling but everyone is different. Xx
It's quite simple, choose who you want!
We had this ... MIL insisted we had hubby nieces as bridesmaids but we said if we had his we would have to have mine so along with my daughters would make 7 , his mother said if we didn't she wouldn't come to the wedding ... we said no ,she didn't come ... ho hum
I decided not to have any sisters as I have 6 and h2b has three. I wouldn't dream of picking half and didn't want a huge party.
My 2 sister and sil as bm and then my niece was fg. His friend was best man
I've got 5 for our party. Best friend witness, adult & 2 young bridesmaid and h2b got his best friend. All our guests are close family & friends (less than 50). Doesn't matter what people say or do it's ur day. We gave our young bridesmaid a choose of where she'd like to seat.
It is your day. Have who you want.
You need to do what is right for you at the end of the day. Your wedding party should be people who are closest to you. Don't let anyone try and change your mind xx
It's YOUR wedding. Don't let anyone bully you.
It's your decision and you are the ones paying for it so invite who you want and have things the way you want..
My family's dont really have a choice in that, its your wedding you say who you want and thats all should matter. If they have suggestions just listen and think it over :D
You simply want to choose those closest to you.
We are having our closest family x
We're including family members who are part of the wedding party by asking them to do readings, play a song and other jobs to help out. All our sisters, my brother and their partners will have a buttonholes or corsage so the family all have something more than the other guests. We've chosen friends and my sister and our godchildren to make up our wedding party.
My mum also wanted some family friends or family invited but seeing as I've not seen most of them for 20 years and hardly know them... I'm only inviting people that matter to me!
I've jut said only my sister and his sister as bridesmaids cant be doing with all the other politics haha
Coming from a huge family.. I've had to narrow it down a lot to who do I turn to when I have an issue ... and who makes an effort to contact me often just for a chat xx it narrowed it down loads xx at the end of the day it is your choice and you shouldn't be forced into having people in your bridal party xx
