Aunts Role In Nieces Wedding
My niece is getting married, and I am not sure what my role is in planning the wedding and also on her wedding day (I am her only Aunt)?
During the planning of her wedding, your niece will need a lot of help. One of the best things that you can do as an Aunt is tell her that you would like to help, and ask her what you can do to help relieve some stress.
Ask her if there is anything that you can take off of her plate, like running an errand or calling wedding vendors for her. She will most likely have a long list of tasks to complete, and there are bound to be things that you can help with.
There really isn’t any etiquette or rules around an Aunt’s role in the planning of a niece’s wedding. It really depends on how close you are to her, her willingness to have you help and what support you are able to provide.
For the wedding day ask if there is anything you can help out with, like a last minute pick up of a tuxedo for a groomsman or dropping off her overnight bag at the hotel, for example.
Often we see Aunt’s participating in the wedding ceremony by reading a passage or other reading. This is a great way for you to be a part of the day, so ask her if this is something that you can do.
To Your Wedding!
