 When choosing your Maid of Honour or Best Man, it is vital to remember that these members will be your main point of call for your special day.

They know it’s your day

With something as big as your special day it can be difficult for some team members to remember it is not their day and perhaps, they do not see everything eye to eye. It is important to chose members of your team who will remember it is you and your partner’s day, therefore if they do not like that cake flavour it is not the end of the world.

A big gesture

There is often a lot of pressure on those who are partaking in speeches to need to embarrass the couple or have a great story. This can cause a lot of stress for these important members of your team. It can be beneficial to remind these members that you have chosen them over others because they mean something to you, their friendship is treasured, therefore you wish for them to just do their best – as after all that is all you can ask of anyone.
