Brief your bridal party before the big day. Let everyone know what is happening when and allocate set tasks to each person. You'll need someone to hand out the order of service and seat guests at the ceremony, someone to hand out confetti and co-ordinate group photographs, someone to look after your bouquet and – if you aren't planning to hire a toastmaster – someone to help gather guests for key moments, such as the wedding breakfast, cutting of the cake, first dance and fireworks display.
