Brides, do you have more people that want to be in the wedding party then you have room for. Not a problem, there are little jobs needed to make the day go smooth. I use a person to help me when the wedding party is up front and we are ready for the bride. That person is my eyes and ears in the back of the room, I have used people to help with making sure the guests are seated. Lots of little things that many people can easily overlook.
The minister or officiant is the one that is doing the majority of the talking and everyone knows the guests are saying shut this person up!!! To make that a little more special I say use a brides maid or grooms man to say a prayer or blessing, do a reading or sing a song. This means more to the couple and the guests to see the love and support from the wedding party. If something is read, have it printed nicely so that you may frame it. I have done that for my couples along with the vows that they written so that the day is always remembered. Make your day the best day ever. Ask people to help even with the little things, life will be much easier for you on your day.
Blessings on you and yours.
