This is a guest post from a groom-to-be – Alex shares his personal advice about choosing your wedding party – and the pitfalls to avoid!

For most people, their wedding is one of the (if not the) most important day of their lives, and in most instances, even if you try to keep it a small affair there will be a number of different people involved, with their own roles to play and their own opinions to contribute (often regardless of whether you want them to).

Part of the job of organizing a wedding is selecting the wedding party – bridesmaids, best man, page boys etc… But anyone who has done it will well know that family politics at weddings can be a nightmare.

Budget / Attendants

Before we get started with choosing the wedding party, it is worth considering what the budget is and how big the wedding will be. Having 7 bridesmaids might be fine if you have 150 guests, but if your wedding is going to be a small affair you should probably limit yourself more.


Just a quick little post from me… it’s time to share a little English Wedding love.

I would very much like to embrace the notion of guest bloggers and audience participation – I should have done it a long while ago. But as I watch the other UK wedding bloggers out there with their teams and helpers and co-bloggers, I know English Wedding could be so much more amazing with your help.

And I’m inviting everyone. Photographers, wedding businesses, brides, newlyweds, passers-by… share your real weddings, news, launches and opinions – I would love to make English Wedding a place where hundreds of weddingy people have a voice.

English Wedding is the wedding industry blog, and the wedding industry has thousands of people in it. So let’s share. If you have a story or anything you’d like to see here, this is how to get involved with English Wedding!
