Lets talk about the "oh so famous" wedding party!
You know who they are.
The people you chose to put in the wedding, to stand next to you on one of the most important days of your life.
The guys and gals who fully support you in almost every thing you do in life.
The guy who helped you sneak out in high school, and the girl who gave you their shoulder while you cried over a jerk in college. The guy who stood with you when you pledged into a fraternity, and the girl who helped you cheat your way through math class. The same two who applauded you when you said "I think I found the one".
These people mean the world to you. They know how significant of a role they play in your life and they have probably been waiting for the day you get married almost as long as you have.
These men and women deserve a shout out and a whole blog just about them!
The wedding party is your "hype guy" on your wedding day. Except there is a whole group of them. You are supposed to laugh, make jokes, cry a little, hug, have a great time, and feel supported. I have worked with the best wedding parties and the worst. I have seen it go amazingly fun (where I didn't want to leave the wedding) and amazingly BLAH. Believe it or not, the wedding party has a lot to do with that.
Our last wedding of 2021 was amazing. The wedding party could of been friends their entire lives for all we know. That is what it seemed like. They joked with each other (guys and girls) drank with each other, danced with each other, but most importantly, they hyped up their bride and groom! These friends of theirs cheered for them during the first dance and the reception exit like I have never seen. They toasted to them, danced with them, laughed with them, cried with them. This wedding party was the perfect ending to our year. They were so kind to us, patient, followed directions, helpful, etc. It made for the best wedding and the best night. The excitement they showed the bride and groom had all the other guests doing the same. The energy in that building was bursting at the seams. You couldn't help but laugh at them as they cheered the newlyweds on. It was pretty amazing. So my point is, when looking at wedding parties, make sure you have your hype guy. It makes everything that much better!
