How do you decide who will be your best man/maid(en) of honor?

Cupid’s Advice:

On one of the biggest days of your life, Cupid has some advice on how to choose who will be by your side every step of the way:

1. Family: Who can you trust more to guide you through your wedding than your own brother or sister?  Your sibling is the usual and most classic choice for your best man/maid(en) of honor.

2. Someone who has always been there for you: If you have a friend or family member that you’ve always been able to count on, chances are that’s the person who is going to come through for you on one of the most important days of your life.

3. Someone who has the time: Your best man or maid(en) of honor needs to be there to assist you with every step of the wedding process.  Make sure the person you choose has the time to make that big of a commitment.
