wedding party dilemma...

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies just need a bit of advice. Ok so here's my issue...I have a good friend that you can tell really wants to be a bridesmaid but im keeping it to family plus my best friend of 10 years. As it is I have one too many bridesmaids..and its driving me crazy that our wedding party is uneven lol. I want her to somehow be part of the wedding but cant really think of how to include her. I feel almost guilty because so far shes been really involved in the planning and throwing ideas on the table. Any ideas on how I can include her somehow without her being a bridesmaid??

Oh tough.... why not give her another job, like a VIE (very important extra). You could ask her to do a reading (or song if she is musically inclined) at the ceremony, speak at the reception, work the guest book table, hand out programs, or give her some other job. I have seen this called a Hostess before, I believe. 

Just be honest about everything with her, and chances are, she will totally understand.

Not sure if you are having a reception or not but maybe she could emcee.  Thats a really important job to have!

I am having the same issue with one of my best friends!  I am thinking of having her do a reading during the ceremony.  On that note, does anyone know of a website with good suggestions for ceremony readings?  And when in the ceremony would you have her do the reading?

No I dont know of any websites but I'm sure you can find something on this amazing site. They seem to have everything LOL. I haven't decided yet but I think I'm going to leave her in charge of making sure the little things are done and that things run relatively smoothly (ex. throughout the ceremony/reception/guestbook/little things while we're getting ready and whatnot). I know thats what the WC is for but theres some stuff that I would rather have done by someone that knows exactly what I want. I'm also having some games during the wedding day that ill need assistance with =)

Hello there!

I am here to support my cousin through her DW in Mexico.  While I am the MOH, she is going to have a very dear friend of hers sign the Wedding Registry as a Witness.  I think it is a beautiful idea and her friend is thrilled to have an important task on the big day. 

Hope this helps!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
