Large Wedding Party

Recommended Posts

I have a big family and both my fiance and I have a lot of close friends. Our wedding party is more than likely going to consist of 7 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen. I'm starting to think that it might be too big for a DW. But I really can't picture cutting anyone out. Everyone that we are planning on asking are important to us. Is anyone else having a large wedding party?

I had 8, but then I felt bad leaving another friend out so now I have 9 bridesmaids, 2 jr. bridesmaids, and my fi is only having 4 or 5 groomsmen, lol! It should be interesting but I really don't care anymore. I would rather have too many than leave someone out!

 

The only thing I am worried about is the bouquet situation, even the silk bouquets is expensive for a wedding party that big! What are you doing about that?

I actually think I'll forgo the bouquets for my bmaids. Its really expensive for something they will hold on to for maybe an hour. IF we do bouquets we will find a way to incorporate them into centerpeices I think. Like have an empty vase and then they will each place one in a vase at the reception. I've seen it done for head tables and it looks nice

omg thank you so much for this! We started off with four on both sides and than it grew to six each. I was really stressing that it's too many people for a DW - but they are all people we couldn't imagine not being in the wedding party.

It makes me feel so much better knowing that there are other DW brides going this route. I like what damaris wrote "the more the merrier". thewave.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
