There are several factors to consider when you are choosing your wedding party. Yes, you are choosing your best friends and family members to be apart of one of the most memorable moments of your life, but you are also asking them to play a vital role with responsibilities and obligations. Will this person be supportive? Is this person reliable? Just as you are careful about the vendors you should be careful when selecting your bridal party.
Your wedding party has an understanding that there is a financial obligation involved. If you know your cousin does not have a job, unless you are planning on footing the bill, you shouldn’t ask them to be in the wedding. You should be clear on your expectations from the beginning. Don’t be unreasonable or too demanding. If you want everyone to have long hair for your wedding, be clear on “ASKING” that no one cuts their hair. If you state your vision in the beginning you will have less chance of being disappointed. And remember, no one likes a Bridezilla.
