Alternative Wedding Roles

You know when you just don’t have the budget to buy all your mates a bridesmaid dress even though you’d love to? How can you involve them in your day without breaking the bank and making sure they still feel valued? Enter RMW The Podcast and our episode dedicated to alternative wedding roles.

Wether it’s having your niece perform a reading or your Uncle driving you to your ceremony, you can find roles within your wedding for everyone.
