How to Pick Your Groomsmen

Your wedding is fast approaching and it’s a pivotal moment in your life. You stand before family and friends to unite with the love of your life. You want to share in this special occasion with those who are close to you. One of your most challenging decisions will be choosing your groomsmen. Take some simple tips in order to make this monumental decision a bit easier.

It’s All in the Family
Take a look at most weddings and you will see that siblings are at the top of the list. If you have brothers and you have a solid relationship, you’ll want to include them in your wedding party. It will be up to you when it comes to the critical position of best man. It could be your big brother, your twin, or your kid brother that has been your shadow for most of your life. If you don’t have siblings, you may have cousins or uncles that have had a major impact on your life. You need to remember the ties that bind and make your family feel involved.

Don’t Forget Your Buddies
Your best friend is going to be at the top of the list when you need someone to stand up with you at your wedding. If you don’t have a brother, you already know who will be first in line for best man. When you have a group of really good friends, you can include them all as groomsmen or help them to feel included as ushers.

Don’t Forget Your Partner’s Family
In addition to your friends and family; don’t exclude family members on your partner’s side of the family. Whether you need to round out your group of groomsmen or simply want to show how important your in-laws are, you can always reach out to your partner’s brothers.
