How to Choose Your Groomsmen
Guys, when it comes to weddings, the words ‘easy’ and ‘quick’ are not words used to describe the planning and preparation. This is why it is critical to have the right crew by your side. The right group of groomsmen will be your go to for ideas, guidelines, laughter and support which will help you and fiance’s sanity.
Family Comes First
Let’s be honest, this is no brainer. Grooms will look to brothers (brother in-laws to be), cousins, uncles and even fathers and grandfathers to be by their side. Not only is this the easiest of choices, but it just makes sense that the people who have been with you since birth are standing with you at the alter.
Just One of the Guys
After you’ve gone through the family options, take a look at your other ‘brothers.’ These include childhood friends, high school buddies, college roommates, workplace bros, friends of your fiancé, and long time family friends. These are all excellent choices to be a part of your wedding crew.

Compromise, Compromise, Compromise!
How large of a bridal party do you and your fiancé plan to have? How many bridesmaids is the bride to be planning to choose? Choosing your groomsmen involves both you and your fiancé. Your groomsmen list of 15 bros may not be how she envisioned the small family only bridal party. It is wise to have conversation about how each of you picture your ideal bridal party and their involvement in the wedding. Bring a list of bridesmaids and groomsmen possibilities to the conversation and work through it together. You and your fiancé will be making a lot of decisions together and thus can actually make the process of choosing the right wedding crew even easier.
