    (both sides combined)

    we are looking at having 6 or 7 each! it sounds crazy to me because it will be half of our attendee list but we both agree that these people are so important we cannot get married without them standing for us!

    i guess i started thinking about it more from the financial perspective - more pressure on them to 'have to go'. more gifts, etc.

    i love hearing all your situations!

      Zero... we had no bridal party because we only had 6 guests attend our wedding.

          We always planned to have just 1 on each side, but then reality set in. I have 4 sisters that I am very close to and 4 girlfriends that I have been friends with my whole life. I decided that even if it looked crazy, I didn't want to get married without them by my side. So, I have 8 BRIDESMAIDS...ahhhh! (and I didn't ask Mike's 3 sisters, that would have been even more ridiculous!) Mike also has 8, his brothers and mine and close friends.

              I had to say other, cuz I will have 3 girls and he will have 6 guys, if they all book like they said they would. I have 4 close girlfriends that can't participate in the Jamaica part of it, cuz they all have 1+ kids, but they are helping with everything else and will be a part of the AHR.

                  We have 8 total. My FH wanted it to be 2 total, but I had to keep talking him up. We finally agreed on 6, but then I had to put in a friend that has been really helping me out lately and a really good friend, so he agreed to make it 8. That is where we stop for sure. Its hard though because I have a lot of close friends.

                    i had to put other b/c as of right now we have 3 girls and 2 guys. our MOH and BM will walk down together and then the other to BMs will escort the other GM.

                    however, one of my BMs may be preggers....so we'll see.

                      Ours is huge...8 on my side and ELEVEN on his! We decided not to worry about whether my number and his number were the same or whether we had too many and to just ask everyone we wanted to ask. Since they're not all standing up on an altar or anything, I"m not that concerned how it looks. I guess there is going to be some doubling up walking down the aisle.
