When you start to plan your wedding you soon realize just how much effort and hard work goes into it. There are so many things to remember and so much detail that it can be hard to know where to start and where to fit everything in. If you are in a rush or you have so much to do that it makes you panic to just look at it then why not try asking your wedding party for help? Who are your wedding party? Well they are basically all immediate family, bridesmaids, ushers, best man and of course the bride and groom. All of your wedding party will help you to make your day special so why not make the most of their love and devotion by putting them to work!

If you feel that certain members of your wedding party are unreliable or have little time available to you then why not give them small jobs to do such as Bride and groom exchange rings sticking stamps on the invitations or collecting the flowers. If you have a member of your wedding party that has a skill or talent then make sure that you work this to your advantage. For example if you have a crafty bridesmaid then get them to make the handmade invitations. If your soon to be mother in law makes wedding cakes then get her to do yours. All of this will be one less thing that you have to worry about and one more tick off your “to do” list. Your wedding party will be more than happy to help you out and will even offer their services for things that you might not have thought of.

If you have duties for the rest of the wedding party then make sure that they know exactly what they have to do. By ensuring that everyone has a role in your wedding, you can sit back and relax knowing that the work is being done without you having to stress about it.
