How to Involve Your Bridal Party in the Wedding Planning Process

Weddings are typically one of the most memorable occasions of a person’s life, but they can also be quite stressful as there are many things to plan and lots of people involved, which can factor into expectations. Planning for the big day means taking in many people’s opinions to agree on how the big event should go. Of course, most people tend to overlook the difficulties involved in planning a wedding, and few even discuss it, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t involve some of the most exciting times of your life either.

The planning process may have some bumps in the road, but that is to be expected for any large-scale event. Your relationship and upcoming marriage should be truly special and unforgettable, and your bridesmaid event can go off without a hitch if proper protocols are put into place. The following are some of the ways in which you can ensure that your wedding day is as hassle-free as possible.

Designate Roles Early On

The earlier you assign roles for people involved in your wedding, the fewer problems you will experience before the big day arrives. Some people procrastinate so much that everything is in disarray and the wedding is memorable for all the wrong reasons. As the event leader, you want to ensure that everyone you enlist is aware of their responsibilities and all deadlines that pertain to their duties.

Traditionally, the maid of honor is responsible for many of these duties, but if you need more assistance, you can always call on in-laws, siblings, and even aunts, uncles, and cousins if necessary. Communicating directly what you want and how you want to execute plans can make all the difference for your big day. 

Make a Day Out of Dress Shopping

Every woman wants to remember her wedding day through her wedding dress, and what better way to do that than by making a day out of shopping for the dress of your dreams? It doesn’t have to be just a day for your dress, however. You can also coordinate a day that involves your bridesmaids too.

Together, you all can look at both wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses and discuss color schemes, styles, and patterns that will work for everyone on the big day. This will ensure that you all feel more comfortable and secure in what you are wearing on the wedding day.

Take Everyone Out for Dinner

Brides are going to have nervous episodes up until and possibly through the time of the wedding, and that is where bridesmaids come in to hopefully support the bride and put them at ease. This is also the best time to thank everyone for helping out on the big day and ensuring that it goes smoothly. It is also one of the most opportune times for the bridal participants to get to know one another. There are many icebreakers and gathering sites that can help this process along, and it also serves as a great time to get creative and find out the talents of everyone involved.

Have a Registry Party

A registry party is a great way to let everyone involved in the wedding day know what the bride and groom would like to receive as well as offer insight into what options are available to them. Guests can use the wedding registry as a time to discuss with other guests what items they can purchase in tandem with another guest and go over price points with everyone in attendance.

The party serves as an icebreaker for guests who may not have met one another and reconnect those who may not have seen one another in ages. Anyone who has already gone through the registry process before can also be a big help.

Make it a Fun Experience

Ultimately, don’t fret about all the things that could potentially go wrong or else you will definitely wear yourself out before the big day. Instead, expect that there will be some bumps in the road and that adjustments will probably have to be made. That is part of the process and there is no such thing as a seamless wedding from start to finish.

Anything that happens on your wedding day will become part of the memories, but the best parts of the day are the ones that will live with you forever. Make your wedding planning process a top priority and you will assuredly have the event of your dreams with unforgettable memories.
