Friends and Family

Usually, you will select your attendants out of your closest friends and family. These people will be the most likely candidates for helping you with all of our wedding planning. If you have more friends and family who can help besides those chosen as attendants, you are in luck. The more people you have helping you, the less stressful your wedding planning will be. Here is a list of typical assignments for friends and family:

Groom:

  • Helps with what he can of wedding planning
  • Plans the honeymoon
  • Picks the band/DJ
  • Picks men’s attire

Non-attendant family/friends:

No matter what tasks you decide to delegate, it is always vital for you to thank everyone who helped plan your big day. Some people do this with gift, other just give a card or even just a hug. Also, always remember that they are there to help you and support you with any task you give them.
