We all know about the formal roles of people in a wedding: the bride, groom, father of the bride, mother of the bride, the in-laws, bridesmaids, planner and more. However, there are a whole cast of people you will find in both the planning and the day of  the wedding. Here are some of the more infamous ones:

The Perfect Muslim Wedding Host and Guest List

The Perfect Muslim Wedding Host and Guest List

Well-wisher: These are the people that really care for you. Their words are heartfelt and prayers are soul-felt.

Critic: This is the unsolicited opinion-giver. Nothing is good enough for them. Remember you can’t please everyone.

Ninja: These are the wedding crashers. They come in smooth and in perfectly fitting clothes, silently they move in, take the food or the loot and escape. Watch out for them.

Peacemaker: Regardless of their age, they are the ones who should be working in the United Nations. They are the ones who want everyone to overlook problems and say, “why can’t we just get along?” They are really important to help diffuse wedding tension.

Bulldozer: They are the “my way or highway” types. Depending on their power or influence you have to maneuver yourself around them or incur their wrath.

The Mafia: These are the family and friends you don’t want to invite but are obligated to. Remember, be careful who you trust, not everyone that smiles at you is your friend.

Troublemaker: The name is pretty clear. Sadly they will be there at your wedding. Keep them busy, make them feel important, feed their ego and keep them out of the way of the important stuff.

Fashionista: They want to look good and be the talk of town. They may want to even upstage the bride. Don’t let them get to you. No matter how well they dress, their negative energy will take away from it all. It’s your day, be the best version of you.

Awesome Aunty and Unreliable Uncle: Their jokes may be off, their poetry lacking rhythm, but let them be a part of the fun.

Bridezilla and the Prince: Pretty self explanatory. Just make sure you get them to the coach by midnight.

Are there any roles we missed that you would care to add? Please share.
