Choosing the Team

Here are some key questions to ask when choosing the best man and bridesmaids:

- Are they able to handle responsibility?
- Can they cope with organisation?
- Are they easily overwhelmed?
- Are they reliable?
- Sometimes close friends are unsuitable and more capable individuals must be chosen instead.

The best man and chief bridesmaid are the most important roles to be filled. They must be organised and able to delegate jobs to the ushers and bridesmaids, as well as be able to solve problems and mediate delicate situations.

The couple should also decide whether they want children as bridesmaids or pageboys.
