You’ve probably heard the saying, “It’s not a wedding without a bridesmaid.” Well, it’s true! Your wedding party is an essential part of your big day. But choosing who will be in your wedding party can be a difficult decision. You want to make sure you choose the right people for the job—people who will support you and help make your wedding day absolutely amazing.

But how do you go about choosing who will be in your wedding party? How do you handle the inevitable hurt feelings that might arise when you ask people to participate? And what are some of the factors that should inform your decision-making process?

Here are some tips for choosing your wedding party:


Start early!

If you’re thinking about getting married in just a few months’ time (or even less), now is the perfect time for creating your guest list and deciding who’s going to be in your bridal party—and make sure you take advantage of all the help available!

Consider the size of your wedding

If you’re having a small wedding with only a few guests, it may not make sense to have a large wedding party. Similarly, if you’re having a large wedding, you may want to consider having more bridesmaids or groomsmen to balance out the size of the event.


Think about your relationships

Your wedding party should be made up of people who are important to you and your partner. This may include siblings, close friends, and even parents or other family members. Think about who has been there for you through thick and thin, and who you can rely on to help you through the wedding planning process.

Consider personalities

It’s important to choose people who will get along with each other and who have compatible personalities. You don’t want to choose people who will clash or cause drama during the planning process or on the big day itself.


How to ask

Once you’ve decided who you want in your wedding party, it’s time to ask them. You can do this in a variety of ways, from sending a heartfelt card to having a fun get-together with your potential wedding party members. Make sure to give them plenty of notice so they can plan accordingly.

Be mindful of hurt feelings

While you may want certain people in your wedding party, it’s important to be mindful of hurt feelings if you’re not able to include everyone. If you have a large group of friends or family members, consider asking them to play other important roles in your wedding, such as reading a poem during the ceremony or helping with decorations.


Choosing your wedding party can be a fun and exciting process, but it can also be a bit overwhelming. By considering these factors and being mindful of hurt feelings, you can choose the right people to stand by your side on your big day. Remember, your wedding party should be made up of people who will support and celebrate your love, so choose wisely!
