After selecting our venue and setting up our custom wedding website (more on that later), the next most important thing was asking our wedding party if, well, they’d be in our wedding party!
For Mr. Cola it was an easy choice. His brother would be his best man, and his 3 best friends from high school and college would be his groomsmen. Done, easy as pie.
However, considering that most of my friends are guys, and I’d had to disown my best girlfriend last January (long story), I was at first not looking forward to picking my girls. Obviously my sister would be my MOH, there was no question about that, but I didn’t want to ask anyone to be a bridesmaid that I wasn’t that close with, and make someone feel obligated because they were asked. So I ended up picking bridesmaid H, who I’ve become friends with over the past 3 years (and who is now conveniently married to one of the groomsmen!), and bridesmaid A, who is my future sister in law.
So we’ll be having uneven numbers, with 4 on Mr. Cola’s side and 3 on mine. But it wasn’t a big deal to me, so I moved on to making the fun little “will you be in our wedding party” cards!
