Most of the time when girls get engaged; mum, the best friend, aunty etc etc etc want to be involved and help in the planning.
This can be a hard time for brides to make sure they are making their own decisions but at the same time allowing their nearest and dearest to help and/or influence. Brides are often worried that they don't have enough 'positions' for each of their special friends and family- one can only have so many bridesmaids.
We've compiled a list of different jobs or responsibilities to make sure every special person in your life can be involved in the planning and running of your special day. Remember though that some may feel honored enough just being invited to your wedding, some may not want the responsibility so make sure you get an honest response before handing out these tasks.
