When you and your partner set out to create your list of bridesmaids and groomsmen, you can run into some difficult questions. While planning your wedding can create many different challenges, designating which people in your life you want at the altar with you can feel especially personal. There are several considerations you should make, beyond the bond shared between you, and the people you consider. You may worry someone close to you might have a hard time absorbing the costs that come with serving as a bridesmaid or groomsman. If you look to your wedding party for planning support, an especially stubborn friend could be difficult to work with. While many conflicts you encounter will be a reflection of your relationships, there are some common issues that come up in the course of assembling your wedding party.

1. What Should Our Bridesmaids And Groomsmen Wear?

Generally speaking, you want the attire you select for your wedding party to reflect your wedding atmosphere. A more formal event would make more formal attire appropriate, but if you have a more laid-back affair, you can experiment with more casual options. You can use your wedding colors for inspiration when selecting attire.

2. Can We Have A Mismatch Between Bridesmaids And Groomsmen?

While some couples do fret over how an imbalance might look at the altar, or in photos, you are not obligated to have your number of bridesmaids match your groomsmen.

3. What If I Want Someone Of The Opposite Gender In My Wedding Party?

Coed wedding parties have become more normal, so there is no set rule against a bridesman or groomswoman. That being said, if you are concerned about the reaction from more conservative family members, you may want to address this with them ahead of time.
