On the Sixth Day of Christmas 2011

The dress fits like a glove and you feel like you're well on your way to having the most perfect wedding ever.  Now you have a daunting task to deal with....

On the sixth day of Christmas my wedding planner gave to me.. "The Bridal Party"

By now you've probably graduated from grammar school, high school and college.  You've been working a fabulous job and met some really nice ladies.  How do you decide your bridal party from the 100,000 people you've met in your lifetime?

"A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity."

This a time of celebration so think of your closest friends and family that will not only celebrate the union but respect it as well. The size of your wedding should also be a consideration; if you're having 100 guests than 4 attendants is ideal.  For those of you having 300-400 guests, have at it and choose 8-12 on each side... my motto? Your wedding, your choice!

Be sure each attendant understands what you would like them to do and make certain they can follow through!   Guys are typically pretty easy so here is a brief overview for the ladies you are considering.

Your Maid of Honor will handle your bridal shower and also sign the marriage license as a witness.  Her duties are extensive on the day of the wedding so make sure she's ok with a lot of bending and moving about.  Every girl has a few trustworthy friends they ofen consider sisters.  Bridesmaids are your support system and team for your maid of honor.  The princess of this select group is your Flower Girl.  Typically between 2-8 years old, she walks down the aisle right before your grand entrance.

Have fun BUT remember the very single college friend that thinks you can still "get it in" probably isn't a wise selection for THIS role but she'll probably help your M.O.H plan a memorable bachorlette party.

Ha - have fun!!
