- Wedding: September 2013
I am new to the boards, and a newly engaged bride.
We are working on shaking out the details for the wedding, almost have the date/location/church set (down to two dates, waiting on band/photog comfirmation/decisions).
Now we are on to the Wedding Party decision. We are both the middle children in our families, and both the last to get married on each side. We are 31 and 34 respectively.
We are leaning heavily towards including ALL of our siblings and siblings-in-law in the wedding party plus two friends on each side.
I have two concerns and am hoping for some advice/insight.
1. Is having your 2 children, plus both the mom and dad, in the wedding party (children aged 6 and 1.5) too much on a couple? Or IMHO, I think it looks nice and would be almost easier, as the parents can carry the youngest during the wedding if needed….
My sister says no…. (she has a 1.5 year old as well, and her and her husband would be in it too) but I am afraid that my finace’s brother/sis-in-law might think its too much with having 2 flowergirls and themselves.
And If we do go this route….
2. I am in need of dresses that I can choose multiple styles – including some modest/mature styles but also some young and fun styles.
2 of the sister-in-laws (my brother wife and his older brothers wife) are both in their 40’s and more mature looking/modest dressers. While everyone else is between 27-31, and active/fit and not-s-modest.
Does anyone know of good designers that offer the option to have multiple styles to choose from in the same or similiar fabirc? I am very open to having varing dresses, but just want everyone to be comfortable.
HELP, insight and thoughts are MUCH appreciated!
