How many bm is too many?
Posted 30 July 2009 - 06:43 PM
I recently got "officially" engaged and in the excitement I asked my friends to be my bridesmaids without doing the cutesy things on here (like the card saying "will you be my bridesmaid?" etc...) Anyway I am up to 8- my sis, future sister in law, sister in law, 2 cousins, 3 of my BFF's, and 2 jr bridesmaids (future niece and cousin)
I have one more friend who told me she might not be able to make it because of the $,and lives on the other side of the country, but I wanted her in my bridal party. I also have a friend in another country who I am pretty close to but probably not close enough to have her in my bridal party, and she wont be able to come to the bachelorette party or the shower, but if I do not have her in it she will get very upset.
So what should I do? I wish I had either limited it to immediate family or scrapped the idea of bridesmaids altogether... is 10 too many or the more the merrier? Thanks!

Other than that, if it's important to you to have the people you mentioned in the bridal party then go for it!!! It should be about what you want.

I sort of agree with Lori on the size of your guest list though. That's something I'm worrying about myself..... I have a MOH and 2 BMs and FI has a BM and one GM. Well, it turns out that we only have 10 of us in total going.... so that leaves a whole 3 people as guests that are not in the wedding party. I am really worried about that. I'm hoping that I won't notice the day of, but I'm deathly afraid that it will feel wierd or look funny in pics.
Good luck and let us know what you decide!

We have about 80 coming to the wedding...and while our wedding party does make up 25% of our guests (10 bm and 10 gm)...I'm hoping it works out alright. I just couldn't leave people out - I felt too bad

Do you want to get them all gifts? If you were thinking of something nice, 10 could get expensive so make sure it's within your budget.
Good luck and remember to do whatever will make YOU happy!!

I say if you want 10, then go for it!
