Who should I ask to walk me down the aisle?
Tradition is that the bride’s father accompanies her down the aisle. Of course this may not always be the best option, or there may be more than one father figure in a bride’s life. A great alternative to include more than one person in the tradition is to have someone walk you down the aisle and then have the father (or whomever else) actually give the bride away. This is a sentimental time in the ceremony so make sure you include those who deserve to be recongnized during this special moment.
Do you have to have the same number of bridesmaids as groomsmen?
You never have to have the same amount of bridesmaids and groomsmen, you can always work out the uneven number in pictures and for the walk down the aisle. Though, if you are a stickler for symmetry or matching then you may want to make sure you have equal people on each side. Emergencies and last minute things can happen and someone in the bridal party may not be able to be a part of the wedding, so be prepared for such things.
How long does it take to order bridesmaid dresses?
Most designers can take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks to order. Some designers offer rushes on orders for addtional cost. Make sure to look and inquire early so you can determine your ordering and alterations timing!
My future mother-in-law wants to wear a red dress to the wedding, but it really doesn’t match our color scheme…how do I get her to change her mind?
This can be a tricky situation for anyone! Depending on your relationship with your mother-in-law-to-be, it would probably be best to let her know what color dress your mother is wearing and hint at how she will blend in so well in pictures. Or if that is too intimidating or hard to do, ask your fiancee to suggest a new color option for her (with plenty of compliments). She may want or need you to accompany her while looking for a new dress, just remember that she needs to be comfortable and feel good too.
