How did you choose your bridesmaids??

We are having a small DW. Right now, we have us and a best man and maid of honour. FI would also like to have his brother in the wedding party, as a groomsman (he would be best man but he's only 15 so he can't sign the paperwork).
Right now, FI has my brother as his best man, and wants his brother to be a groomsman.
I have my sister as my MOH, but would have to pick one of my close friends to be in the wedding party as a bridesmaid.
My question is how did you choose They are all my close friends, but I don't want to pick one and have the others get thier feelings hurt or get insulted. I've already had a couple of them say stuff like "Oh, I thought you were goingn to ask me to be in the wedding pary" or something similar. Fortunately, I've been able to evade those statements by saying that we are each only having 1 attendant. But I am eventually going to have to pick someone, and honestly there isn't a single one that stands out as THE ONE.
Its not that I don't want them to be in the wedding party, I just don't want to have to pick between them... pretty soon it will be eeny, meeny, miney, mo or picking a name out of a hat!
I was thinking it might be nice and symmetrical to ask one of FI sisters - only problem is, the one I like is the one who can afford the wedding least, and probably isn't going to go anyway.
Sigh. How do you choose between friends

Its kind of funny, I know it doesn't all have to match with the number of people, but that is one of the things that I do want to have, lol!

I don't have any brothers or sisters, so my two female cousins are like my sisters... so one of them (the older) is my MOH and the other is a bridesmaid... I have two friends as bridesmaid and FI's little sister as a bridesmaid as well (huge wedding party, I know!)

traditional has become the untraditional..do what makes you happiest and causes you the least amount of stress...god knows there will be enough of that anyway

Then at least eveyone is family - and you can explain to your friends that you couldn't pick them and you wanted to do something special for your mum... They can't get made at you choosing your own mother over them...?
I dont know how you would feel about it - but its best to consider the outside-the-box options too in a dilemma like this!
