How do you select your wedding party without hurting your friends’ feelings?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Planning a wedding is similar to making a life changing decision. You are constantly changing your mind, plus you want everything to be perfect – and on top of all of this, you have to deal with the opinions/suggestions of everyone else! In the midst of planning, comes the time when you must choose who is going to be in the wedding party . . . the icing on top of the cake! Cupid has some tips to ease the stress and tension when deciding:

1. Sticking to a certain size: Selecting a wedding party when you are basically a social butterfly, is similar to a life or death decision. Inform your friends, preferably one-on-one, that you are aiming for a specific number of bridesmaids or groomsmen. Let them know it is nothing personal against them or any favoritism, but you do not want to go over the limit you and your partner have agreed on.

2. Budget: Having a large wedding party can be costly. If you are trying to achieve a money-friendly wedding, then the goal is to have as little people in the party as possible – inform them of this. Be wise when financially planning, although you may be tempted to have all ten of your BFFs standing beside you on the special day.

3. Include them in other things: Just because they will not be walking down the aisle prior to your entrance does not mean they cannot have a role in the most important moment of your life. Ask if they would like to be included in other various tasks, such as being ushers or greeters. It’s worth a shot!
