..........Many couples find it difficult to select guests so a good idea is to start with close family i.e parents, brothers and sisters and decide at this point if there will be any Bridesmaids or Ushers, Page Boys or Flower Girls. The Matron of Honour and the Best Man help the Bride and Groom prepare for the Wedding and they offer moral support and practical help on the Wedding Day. These people make up the basic list also most guests will want to bring their partner and any children.
Modern families contain step-mothers and step-fathers and half brothers and sisters which can add to the number of close relatives. Sometimes these complex families are difficult to organise, especially in regard to photographs and seating but the important point is that the day is all about the couple who are getting married and in an ideal world their family should be supportive and happy for them!
Everyone loves a wedding and wants to get involved but it is important for the couple to stay in control of the occasion and to plan things together in their own way. This may be the first big event they have organised as a couple and all advice is just that, advice and not a demand.
A Perfect Day
Accept right from the start that a wedding is not going to be perfect no matter how much time and effort goes into the planning! Problems can arise in any area – the venue is low on staff or time due to an unforeseen crisis, or the weather is too hot or wet, one or more guests can’t come or have had traffic problems en-route, a bridesmaid has caught chicken pox, the usher has broken his leg, the list of things that can go wrong is endless. Thankfully most of these things don’t happen and the best advice is to keep communications going so that everyone knows what to do and when, and the couple are up to date with situations. So make sure everybody has the right contact details and........Most important of all DON’T WORRY!.................
