4 Ways to get others involved in your wedding (besides being a bridesmaid)

So you're getting married and everyone from your sister to your best friend from kindergarten to your sorority sisters want to be included in your bridal party. However, you don't want 20 bridesmaids. What's a girl to do? Fortunately, here are some other roles your girls can play during your big day:

Site stylists. If you plan to decorate the reception venue you yourself, you'll need a capable crew to help you with everything-- from arranging tables and chairs to putting down place cards. To make all this seem like less work, you could turn the set up into a pizza party.

Program distributors. Depending on where your wedding is held, you may want at least a couple of people to distribute your programs. Not only does this allow some of your favorite people to be front and center, it also allows them to enjoy the rest of the day stress-free.

Readers. You can have some individuals read religious passages; one thing to keep in mind, however, is that the potential reader may not feel comfortable if you don't share the same beliefs. Additionally, you can choose two or three beautiful poems or passages to read.

Guest book guardian and greeter. Sometimes, guests get confused about the guest book. One way to solve this problem is having a cheerful friend or relative be in charge of it. Select someone who will retrieve your expensive pen, but not a person who'll be aggressive in getting everyone who walks through the door.
