Wedding Responsibilities

Wedding Duties - Who Does What?

It’s that time of the week again – Wedding Wednesday! As we begin to get into the nitty gritty details of the wedding I thought it would be a good idea to discuss how we are splitting (or not) wedding responsibilities:

I have all of them. Just kidding. Kind of.

It just so happens that I am currently not employed full time so I have a lot more free time than my fiancee, father or mother to do wedding related activities. The way that I’ve been going about this wedding planning business is:

  1. I do all of the research and find good candidates for whatever it is we are looking for.
  2. I bring the information to the important parties. For example: choosing our photographer was a decision that was made by Carson and I alone, but the catering decision is going to be made by all of us.
  3. We then either go forward with meeting people or go back to the drawing board.

Some of the responsibilities that I will be delegating includ:

  1. Bridesmaids dresses. I don’t want to even ask my girls to get dresses that are $150+ so I’m going to leave it up to them to get dresses that fit the color/length requirements.
  2. Music. Does this count? I’m not sure because our DJ just wants about 20-30 songs to go off of and he fills in the rest. The 20-30 songs will be chosen by myself, Carson, my parents, his parents and the bridal party.
  3. Catering. I’m going to be there for all of the tastings but I’ve mainly left this decision in the hands of my parents and I have no qualms about this because they have really good taste and know how to throw a party.
  4. Favors. I’ve already asked Amy (my soon to be mother-in-law) to scout out the situation with half of the favors.
  5. Set-up/breakdown. Our venue sets up the tables and chairs for us. The caterer will hopefully be doing all of the tablecloths/napkins. The florist and family will be doing centerpieces etc.

Did you delegate any of the wedding planning to friends or family? I’d love to hear from you! Linking up with Macy and Nikki for Wedding Wednesday.



  1. I probably delegated too many responsibilities to other people ha. I let my sister (my only bridesmaid/MOH) just pick out her own dress, I let my mom decorate, I trusted the DJ to pick songs. I don’t know why I was so carefree! It all turned out perfect though thankfully =)


  2. All you’re really kicking into planning gear! I can’t believe I’m done with it (married this past saturday) soak in these little things because you’ll miss them…I know I do lol.
