Choosing the people to stand alongside you on your wedding day is not an instant decision – or at least it shouldn’t be. Some of the choices could be easy; if you’re very close to one of your siblings, they’ll almost certainly be the best man or maid of honor. Others might require a bit more thought, especially as you’ll want to select people who are trustworthy and mature enough to handle the responsibilities that come with being a bridesmaid or groomsman.

This infographic from Commins & Co aims to help you with choosing the right people for the various roles by highlighting exactly what each one involves. There is no hard and fast rule regarding how many people you must select; that will probably depend on the number of guests attending. Think quality and not quantity, because what matters most is having people alongside you who you can depend upon when the big day comes, and indeed in preparing for the wedding.
