Who Is In Your Wedding Party?!

Amanda, on February 28, 2023 at 20:50 Posted in Plan a wedding 2 43

Will you have your closest friends and family standing up by your side? Or are you keeping it simple?! Who is in your wedding party?!

My husband and I chose to have only a maid of honor and best man stand up for us at our wedding.

I had my best friend of almost 8 years and my husband chose his brother.

    I think that's a beautiful idea to have your parents as your witnesses. To also have 2 of your close friends on each side of you is perfect! Smiley heart

    We’re having our moms be the witnesses. Fiancé is having two of his close friends, and I am having the same. One of my bridesmaid is pregnant and due two days after our wedding, so the day of I might have one person standing by me if she’s not up.

    Our witnesses were our Mothers and my husband has his 3 best friends and I had my 4 best friends. We felt our #1 friends in the world were our Mothers so we wanted them to be our witnesses. Smiley smile

    It was honesty the best decision to have just one each standing up for us! No hard feelings for anyone else!

    That's a great group of people to be apart of your wedding day!

    Love the simplicity of having the 2 you’re closest to up there! I’m having my 4 best friends as bridesmaids, and my 3 brothers up with me. My fiancé is having his 4 closest friends. Big wedding party!!

    Firstly, congratulations on your wedding!

    And both and my fiancé and I decided to have 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, along with my maid of honour, and his best man!

    I decided two have my two best friends (one as the MOH); because I always knew I needed them there with me, my younger cousin; we are very close, and she gets along really well with my fiancé, and my future SIL; she's literally been the most supportive person, and I'm the closest with her out of all my fiancé's siblings.

    My fiancé chose his two best friends from childhood as groomsmen, and two of his cousins (one as the Best Man) who he talks to almost everyday.

    (After much deliberation)

    My fiance & I have kept to keep it small. I have 2 sisters and my FH has 1 brother. Unfortunately, I only speak to a sister that lives out of province. Therefore, his brother is the best man, the sister I speak to is the maid of honour, The flower girls & ring boys are our combined nieces & nephews which is- 2 girls & 3 boys

    I've chosen to go with what you could say is one good friend from each stage of life. My best friend from childhood, my fiance's sister who I hung out with more in high school, and then a friend from university. We're not really going to single out one person each, like a maid of honour or best man, as we couldn't pick just one. The jobs done by that role will likely be divided by who wants to do it.

    My sister is my MOH. Three of my bridesmaids are my friends I've known since Kindergarten and gradeschool and my last bridesmaid is my FH's sister whom I love dearly ❤️. My FH is still finalizing his people. His brother-in-law is his best man and his dad will be one of his groomsman, but he wants one more person.

    To be honest, I had a hard time picking who will be in the wedding party than my fiancé did. I was really careful of whom I chose because I didn't really have a lot of girlfriends. My maid of honor was an easy pick, it was my younger sister. But in the end, I chose one female coworker who I was good friends with and a school friend of almost 20 years as my bridesmaids.

    My fiancé chose his younger brother as his best man. His groomsmen are: two childhood friends of his and a mutual friend.

    Yes, we have an uneven number in our wedding party but that's ok, it doesn't have to be even on both sides after all. Smiley smile

    Agreed! Do not include them just for this reason, you may be regretful of it. They will just have to understand, period. I thought I was going to be in my friends wedding party but she did not ask lol and explained afterwards why (even though she didn't have to and I did not even ask her why) but I did not at all make a deal out of it. I just wanted to support her during an already ,can be, stressful time, and when her day came, just enjoy with her!

    I hate people who think they are entitled to certain things. This is your wedding pick whoever you want to be in your bridal party and if people get upset because you didn't choose them then that is on them not you.

    I had the awkward experience of a friend saying "I better be in your wedding party!" and honestly, I wasn't planning on it. I wanted my sister as by MOH and three other best friends as my bridesmaids, but I feel like this girl will be upset as she always says I am her best friend... help!

    We have a big wedding party lol
    My goddaughter is going to be our flower girl, her brother will be 1 ring bearer, and our friends' son will be the other.

    I have a very close group of girls (including 4 of us that are basically each other's ride and dies) that I couldn't imagine my big day without them up there with me - so 7 ladies (including a Jr. Bridesmaid), and my FH is having 3 of my BM's sig. others stand up there with him, one of my cousins, my brother, and his son as a JR. Groomsman. FH had cut out a lot of his family and friends who were fairly toxic - luckily, he has become close with the partners of some of my best friends, and my family

    Now, we asked all these people a few months after we got engaged 5 years ago now, so when we are getting closer to finalizing things, we will be re-asking these individuals, and giving them an "out" if their life situations have changed

    I had my cousin (who's been my best friend since I was like 3 years old) and two of my closest friends. My husband had his two brothers and his best friend.
