Your wedding is such a special day to you, and when the time comes to tie the eternal knot, it’s important to have the right people by your side supporting you and sharing this experience with you. Whether you are the bride or the groom, you want to make sure whoever you choose to be in your bridal party is someone that will encourage you, support you, and remember all of the little details so you don’t have to fuss or stress on your big day.
Not only do they need to support you, but you also need to support and appreciate them. Remember that whoever you ask is going to have a lot of work to do for your wedding. The maid of honor and best man will plan the bachelor/bachelorette party, guard the rings, help organize so many important details, and most of all be your number one support.
If you have already chosen who those special people are in your life, then you want to invite them in a way that will flatter them, surprise them, and get them excited about saying “yes.” Most importantly, you want to invite them in their own language. We all have a love language that we speak with all of our friends, not just in our romantic relationship. If you have a successful friendship with someone that will be there on your wedding day, then the odds are, they are already someone who you know well. If you know their love language, then ask them to be your bridesmaid/groomsmen in a way that will make them feel appreciated and loved. If you don’t know their love language- I encourage you to find out. It will help you along the way in your relationship to make sure they feel valued in the friendship and it will help things run smoothly on your wedding day.
Hopefully, this blog gave you some inspiration to ask your wedding party. We hope your bridesmaids and groomsmen will feel extra special when you ask them!
