- Wedding: August 2012
I haven’t told anyone who I am going to have in my wedding besides my Maid/Matron of Honor. It’s been kind of stressful because I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, and I kind of just keep pushing this to the side. It’s time I put my big girl panties on and figure this out 🙂 Feel free to give your opinions!
My flower girl is my fiancé’s little sister (she will be 8 at the time of the wedding). I wasn’t originally going to haver her as my flower girl, however my Future Mother-In-Law insisted that she be in the wedding as either a flower girl or Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man. So, I now have a flower girl.
Me and my FH have a lot of children in our families and it has been tough deciding who will be what without hurting people’s feelings.
My oldest nephew (will be 11) will be the ring bearer. My other nephew (will be 8) will walk my mom to her seat (my parents are separated).
FI’s two oldest nieces and only nephew will either be program attendants or some other job that I have yet to find. (Please give ideas! I’m dying here trying to figure out what to have them do!)
Fiance also has a niece who will be 2 by the time of the wedding and was who I originally wanted as my flower girl.. Is there anything else that I could include her in? I have no idea…
My best friend is my Maid/Matron of Honor. I have two other friends that I want to be BM’s along with FI’s older sister. However, Future Mother-In-Law thinks that I can’t ask FI’s sister without asking his sister in law to be a bridesmaid too. I feel as though I need to ask FI’s older sister because his brother and my brother will both be standing on his side. I am not asking my sister in law so I don’t see why it’s such a big deal that I have to ask his sister in law. I want our family and friends up beside us and honestly, I just can’t ask everyone in our families. I thought I would keep it as the immediate family members so that our wedding party does not get out of control.
It’s just too much drama and is making the wedding planning process not so much fun. I am actually dreading it because I feel as though no matter what I do, I am going to hurt someone’s feelings.
