Being engaged and getting to plan a wedding has got to be one of the most beautiful ways to bond as a couple. And better yet, what a wonderful way to get to know your Other Half’s family. If you haven’t spent a ton of time together, involving them in the wedding planning process is a pretty fun way to break the ice. Wondering just how to involve your family in your wedding? Here are some very practical, simple and fun ways to do just that!
Get them to help with DIY Decor Projects
If you have chosen to get creative and do some DIY decor, such as making your own invitations. Invite the family to take part in the creativity! You'll have fun together and the work will get done a lot faster with more hands on deck.
Take them Dress Shopping
If you’re the type of bride who wants opinions on your wedding dress, consider taking your mom and your Other Half’s mom along with you when you try on dresses. Not keen on having additional opinions on your wedding dress? Consider joining the moms when they shop for their dresses!
Show them your venue
What’s the best way to get your families excited about your wedding? Take them to the place where it’s all going to happen! Show them why you chose your dream venue and they will fall in love with it, just like you did.
Ask them to spend the morning of the wedding day with you
A lovely way to involve your family in your wedding is to invite them to be with you on the morning of the wedding day. Find fun ways to include your parents, children or other close family members in this intimate moment.
Involve them in the ceremony
There are a few ways you could do this. Anything from making sure they have priority seating right in the front row to inviting your parents or children to walk you down the aisle to inviting them to do a reading, and anything in between!
Include them in some fun photos
We’ve all seen the standard family photos taken at weddings, but why not throw in some fun photos that’ll have everyone smiling and laughing? Anything involving a unique backdrop or some interactive props is sure to have everyone feeling (and looking) relaxed.
