Your wedding party will contribute to the tone of your entire wedding day. Your bubbly bestie or detail oriented sibling-in-law will spread their energy to you and your fiancé, your family, and your vendors. Every couple’s wedding party will differ between having no one at all to having nearly 20 people in the party altogether. How many people you’d like to include is completely up to you, but remember a few key aspects: even between sides, tone, and budget.
Even Wedding Party
One of the biggest hurdles in selecting a wedding party may be navigating who to include in the wedding party in order to make the numbers relatively even between sides. A line of seven bridesmaids and three groomsmen doesn’t feel quite right. How you decide to even out your parties may be greatly influenced by the tone you’d like to achieve and your budget as well, so keep those in mind.
The difference between a large wedding party, a small wedding party, and not having a wedding party shifts the tone of your wedding. The bigger your guest list, the more appropriate a large wedding party may feel. Though the size of your wedding party may affect the tone of your wedding, I am often more concerned with how individuals in your party will affect the tone of your day. Evening out a wedding party or appeasing your fiancé or family member by including someone in your party that does not fit your vibe is not worth the stress. A negative attitude can be contagious, and those that are predisposed to spreading negativity in your life should not be standing with you on one of the happiest, most stressful days of your life.
Often couples will purchase gifts for their bridal party and may pay for their attire or wedding-related expenses. If you are committed to the purchasing of gifts or contribution to expenses, the more included in your wedding party, the more expensive your wedding will be. Though adding an extra person isn’t a big deal if you’re intending on small gifts and nothing more, if you hope to contribute to all expenses or provide lavish gifts, a larger wedding party may be less feasible.
All in all, make sure you choose people that love and support you and your relationship for your wedding party!
