The information provided will help you make the important decisions on how to choose your honor attendants (maid of honor and best man), and how many people to include in your wedding party.

Picking the right combination of responsible and fun attendants will make your wedding day run smoothly and you will have a great time. You will need a little respect of traditions and a whole lot of trust in your gut feelings. Follow these tips for a top-notch wedding party.

  • When should you choose your wedding party? As soon as possible cause your inner circle will be with you from start to finish. You will need them for essential tasks and to help with shopping and planning of bachelor and bachelorette parties.
  • How many attendants should you choose? Most experts say the ratio should be one pair for every 35 to 50 guest. So, if you’re planning a small wedding maybe best man and maid of honor is all you need. Most weddings have four to six pairs of bridesmaids and groomsmen.
  • How should you prepare your wedding party for the big day? Invite the group you have chosen to a cookout or a nice lunch to discuss your wedding day. Thank them for agreeing to be a part of it. Once you have their attention explain your vision and what you expect from them.
  • Maid/Matron of honor: Pick a friend or family member that wants the job and trust your feelings. Also someone that is financially flexible, because if your sister or friend lacks the funds for a dress she might be relieved to assume a less costly duty.  Make sure they understand the role responsibility of being the Maid/Matron of Honor and why you chose them.
  • Best Man: Choose someone who is a big part of your life and always will be an upstanding and festive fellow.  Maybe the Best Man will be your brother, best friend, college roommate; just make sure that they understand the responsibilities of being the Best Man and again let them know why you chose them.
  • Groomsmen: Choose groomsmen who can handle the responsibility and that are fun, outgoing and most of all, important to you. Trust your gut feelings on this.
  • Bridesmaids: Family first and friends that will be there for the long run. Choose thoughtful ladies who will focus on your wedding day needs.

I hope this little bit of insight helps in choosing you wedding party for that special day.
