Choosing wedding party members: Talk with your fiancé!

The first step to choosing wedding party members is deciding on a number. This will help you stick with a plan and strategize with your hubby-to-be. If it is important to have the same number of bridesmaids and groomsmen, then you should both write down everyone you are considering and compare lists. If you hit the mark right away, congratulations! If not, read your lists to each other and decide together if there is anyone who can be a part of your day in a different way, or if there is anyone either of you may like to add.
