Duties of your wedding party

Rea Shaw wedding party wedding planning

You have selected your wedding party, now it is time to let them know what their duties are so they can fulfil them and not disappoint you. Most friends and loved ones will go above and beyond to help you with your wedding and take the role very seriously. They will be delighted to have been asked to step up! There are also others that may just think turning up is all that is being asked of them, so when choosing your team think about why you want them to play an important part. Don't just include them because they will make up the numbers, or you feel guilty. Choose them wisely!
