How Big is Your Bridal Party?

Recommended Posts

They aren't needed but if you had some people in mind and wanted to use them as ushers it would be a lovely way to include them.

 

I actually had 2 other cousins I didn't have a place for act as "attendants". One passed out the bubbles and the other had people sign the guest frame. They got to be on the program fan, lol.

I'm happy there are others here with large wedding parties. I tried so hard to keep it small, but felt like I would regret it if I didn't include those closest to me. My only problem is I have 5 nephews (NO nieces!) and I want them all in it. So, it may look a little odd to have 5 ringbearers...oh well!

I am going to have 5 on my side and my FI may have up to 8-9. That's not including my brother or his half brothers. My FI is loved by all of his friends and he is too nice. He wants to ask the guys whose weddings hes been in and his other close friends. I don't care what it looks like either, thats not the point. He says if they all come to the wedding he will have them all be groomsmen. He has only officially asked two to be in the wedding. I was surprised that even a few guys just assumed they would be in th wedding and made statements like "i finally get to be a groomsmen" Statements like these are what is increasing the number on his side. I say he makes a decision and sticks to it.

we had 0 and I couldn't have been happier!

 

I still had my lady friends with me getting ready and one of my best friends did my hair and make-up (she owns her own salon and is fantastic).

 

We did however have 2 friends (one buy and one girl) do readings.

I am having six and he is having five. I've read in etiquette books (i know, i should toss etiquette out the window since I am having a DW!) that for a DW you should have no more than three on each side. It's good to see you girls don't care either!!

We are each having one. When we were planning a traditional wedding we were going to have 5 on each side, but I didn't want to over do it for a DW. I do have 3 nieces and a nephew, and at least 3 of them are coming. I want all of them to be part of the ceremony.

Tammy, I am so glad I read this message! I was just stressing to my FI about how no one is going to come to our wedding. I know we are a little over 6 months out, but everyone has made it pretty clear that they aren't going to be able to make it. So far, we have a confirmed 6 (one of which we feel may back out). So, this is my question...what did you do for the reception. I was just thinking of whether we should even have one if there will only be 6. I figure our guests may not want to spend hours with each other for a dinner and how many people will really dance?? Just wondering what you did...(not trying to hijack the post - sorry!!)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
