9 or 10 bridesmaids! HELP!
Posted 16 March 2008 - 10:54 PM
I was thinking about having all 10 and having them walk down the isle and then sit down. I would prefer to have them all stand next to me but i just think its too much. or is it?
Or I could just do the 8 and hope that the last 2 don't get their feelings hurt?
Lastly, one of my FI's sisters has said she would love to be in the wedding, the other one i don't think cares either way, and I love both of them...but I'm thinking of a way to cut people out, would it be worse to not include his sisters and include my last 2 friends? or the other way around (include the sisters and not the last 2 friends)...ugh, please help!!! I thought about doing none, but all my girlfriends are really into it, and my little sister has her heart set on it (she is 14)...
Oh, and were having about 90 people, Just so you can get a visual of what it might look like with 10 bridesmaids...yikes.

For us, it was a non-issue because they were all really important to us. We really didnt give it too much thought... we just sat down and thought about who we would want standing up for us if our wedding was in NY. Once we looked at it that way, we couldnt exclude any of them just could it might look funny.
I will say that we are having them all sit in the front row. That decision was less about how it would look to have such a big bridal party and more about not wanting to make them all stand up in the heat!

Not sure how you feel about readings, but that is also another way you can include friends in the wedding without making them a bridesmaid. Maybe they can read a favorite love poem or spiritual reading. 2 hostesses + 2 readings + 6 bridesmaids = 10 girls included. And you can have them all sit in the front and not feel slighted. If you decie you want to have 10 bridesmaids that is your perogative, it's your wedding
I hope some of this is helpful. In the end your real friends will be happy to be a guest at your wedding. One of my very best friends to this day did not include mein her wedding and there were no hard feelings. And now that I am getting married I understand even more. Bottom line, as long as everyone important is at your wedding, everything will be perfect!

It was almost to the point that anyone female would be standing up for me. So we went with plan b and have none. I'm not totally wild about it, but I'm fine with it. And not having to make choices is SO nice!!
Happily married since 2008
