If They Don't Make the Bridal Party

Do you have any close friends or family members who didn't make the bridal party list, but you still would love them to be apart of your special day? Why not ask them to help with something special either on your wedding day or in the preparation process so they can still be involved?

Here Are Some examples...

Wedding Day Tasks:

1. ask them to do a reading at your ceremony

2. maybe they could even officiate your wedding

3. they could serve as a greeter at the ceremony and hand out programs

4. maybe you have a friend or relative that can sing at your ceremony or reception

Pre-Wedding Tasks:

1. they can accompany you when trying on wedding dresses

2. they can help with either favor or invitation assembly

3. maybe they have ideas of places to hold your reception

M&M's Wedding Weekend

I just got back from an amazing wedding in one of my favorite little towns Old Town Alexandria, VA. We couldn't have asked for better weather and a more romantic place to see two of my favorite people get married. They went with a very Autumn filled event with rich colors of yellows, auburns, reds and golds. The flower girls had baskets full of autumn leaves which added to the Fall feel. They had a bagpiper at the ceremony site to welcome the guest which was such a fun little detail.
