If you are someone who wants to make sure that your wedding goes well and that everything runs smoothly, make sure you consider what your wedding party requires. A good wedding party will see you through the worst of the storm, but to help them work effectively, keep a few tips in mind.
DO clear up personality disputes
Before you ask anyone to be part of your wedding party, tell them about who else is going to be there. If they think they might have serious personality conflicts with the other people, they can simply go as a guest.
DON’T leave things undecided
It is a bad idea to think that things are going to get sorted out on their own. There are many people who find they need to do some delegation right out of the gate, but once you have gotten things decided like that, it will go a lot faster.
DO buy gifts
Gifts for the wedding party do not have to be elaborate, but they should represent your thanks. For the groomsmen, you could order custom ties, buy cufflink sets or choose a bottle of fine wine. For bridesmaids, think about jewelry, cute hats, or gift certificates. If your wedding party is full of free-spirits and quirky people, don’t hesitate to let your gifts be a little weird as well. For example, you can choose to get your wedding party the newest video games, swords, museum-quality skulls or even tattoos!
DON’T be fussy about the bridesmaids dresses
There is a common thread where brides dress their bridesmaids unattractively. The truth of the matter is that if you think about your bridesmaids as visual accessories, you should always choose for beauty! One great way to make sure everyone is happy is to pick a color and then have the bridesmaids choose their dress’s cut.
DO ask for help
A wedding is a big deal. There are many things to be aware of, and many things that need to be done. From flowers to catering to seating, as the day gets closer, you will need to learn more and more about what has to be taken care of. If you are feeling overwhelmed, make sure you go to your wedding party. Be clear about what you need, whether it is a sympathetic ear or a night of non-wedding related fun.
Your wedding can be wonderfully stress-free if you make the right choices with regards to your wedding party!
