Many brides want their wedding to be balanced when it comes to the bridesmaids and groomsmen, but this can be difficult if they’re not married pairs. There are a few things you can do to ensure balance between these very essential groups.
Pair Up Friends
If there are bridesmaids and groomsmen who don’t know each other, try matching their personalities up so they’ll have a good time while they’re together during the wedding ceremony and reception.
Balancing Uneven Numbers
If you have more bridesmaids or groomsmen, you can pair them up with others in order to make it balanced, especially for the ceremony. For instance, maybe you have two flower girls and an extra bridesmaid. Have the bridesmaid walk back down the aisle with the extra flower girl. This creates balance and works out well for pictures.
Don’t Walk Out as Couples
Another option you have if you’re afraid that the ceremony won’t be balanced is avoiding walking out as couples. For instance, have the bridesmaids walk separately from the groomsmen so an uneven number isn’t as noticeable.
Don’t feel as if you have to leave anyone out simply because you want things to be balanced. There are other ways to make it work so that you can have your best friends stand with you during the ceremony and reception! If you’re serious about helping them to meet someone special, you could direct them to the dating advice on pages such as eHarmony.ca. In the meantime, on your wedding day, make sure you get the aesthetics you want by creating balance in these ways.
If you have read the price tag on your dream bridesmaid dresses or you’ve been given a quote for the flowers you want and you think it’s the absolute final price, think again. There are times when you can negotiate with wedding vendors so you can get a better deal on most things you need for your wedding.
You’re Buying More Than One Piece
If you are purchasing more than one thing from the wedding vendor you’ve chosen, this may be a great way to negotiate for a lower price. Many vendors will give discounts if you purchase several things from them, such as all of your bridesmaids’ dresses or flowers to fill multiple tables. Simply ask if they have a bulk discount and don’t be afraid to let them know you’re going to check with other vendors.
You’re Buying in the “Off” Season
If you’re having your wedding during what is considered the “off” season, you may be able to negotiate with vendors. Common off times include during the week and winter and fall, since fewer brides choose these times to get married. This means the vendors make less money and will be more willing to accommodate your budget.
