Your wedding day is a very special day in your life. Therefore it can be difficult to choose your bridal party for this important day, as you want all your loved ones to be involved in your wedding. But do not worry; we are sure you will make the right decision. Here are some tips on how to involve family and friends who are not part of the bridal party.
1. A vow of your family and friends
Letting your friends and family speak out a vow as well. For example, someone can ask if all the guests support you and the pledges you make to each other. Wait till everyone shouts out ‘we do’ and continue with your own vows. In this way you involve all the people in your ceremony and wedding vows and it will create a magical moment during the ceremony.
2. Share your love story
Sometimes not all the guests know how you actually met and how you fell in love with each other. It is a nice touch to share this story before you say your weddings vows. Friends could be used to read this story for you. With a bit of humour and emotion everyone will love hearing this story at the wedding ceremony.
During the ceremony you could ask loved ones to read a poem or a story to get them involved in the wedding. You could select readings yourself or you can trust the people to find something themselves, to have their own personal reading.
4. Friends with talents
Use your talented friends and family to perform at your wedding day. Do you have a brother, friend, cousin or anyone else who plays a musical instrument, has a band or is an amazing dancer? Why not let them perform on your wedding day? It will add more value to the music.
5. A guestbook manager
Having a guestbook is something important for you to be able to relive the special memories. Sometimes the guestbook remains half empty when the guests do not notice or forgot to write in it. Put someone in charge to get people to sign the guestbook and take a fun photo. This could be anyone who likes to socialize with the guests and who knows a lot of people at the wedding. This way you know for sure that your guest book will be filled at the end of the day.
A wedding day should not be set in stone. It is your choice to come up with new and innovative ideas to personalize it the way you want it. Rules and traditions are there to be broken. Good luck with your creative thoughts!
