@keezy Thats super hard! I know i started with a huge bridal party that was i nervous about because i offered to buy the dresses since they will be buying there own tickets! but now i just have my MOH and 1 bridesmaid and my flower girl of course :) 

 

So my silver lining is i am going to save a bunch of money on dresses and gifts and get to spoil the wedding party and guest who do come :)

Problem is my Fi has all his groomsmen (4) all picked and they all supper excited to be in the bridal party. How do I then inform some of them we cannot have them all in order to balance out mine, down to 2 now who are able to make it. :(


Hey at least you have saved money :)

@keezy Ah thats tricky but no where in the book does it say it HAS TO balance! When we first started asking people i was going to have more Maids then my FI was going to have men. This sounds HORRIBLE but maybe some of his men will back out as well....If you have already asked them i was advise against unasking them...

 

Do you have any family who you know if coming or that your close with that you could ask?

Guess that wouldn't be the right thing to do, asking them to drop out! (Wonder how I'd start the conversation off..lol..)

I know it doesn't`t have to balance out but you know us brides wanting everything to be perfect. Unfortunately there is nobody else to ask, a lot of our young friends are not coming or have cxld. Don`t think I want my Aunts as my bridesmaids..lol..


A thought.. maybe I can have 2 groomsmen escort 1 bridesmaid down

@SamanthaC That was an issue I was running into. I wanted to reserve at least 25 rooms but we will probably have around 20 people coming and I know that people are bunking up with as many as possible to save money!! So I took it down to 12 rooms!! Did most of your group use your TA?

 

@keezy I have 3 brides maids an my FI has 5 grooms men. I could ask more people but I don't want to! lol! The 3 I'm asking are the ones that are really there for me and really helping with this whole wedding process so I don't want to ask others just for the heck of it. It would look bad at all to have 2 groomsmen with one bridesmaid! A destination wedding isn't traditional anyway!

@ASAtobe as far as i know so far everyone is using our travel agent! None of my friends/family are big travels except for one of my cousins and his family travel quite often! So its just easier for everyone to use our TA. Though i have started to wonder if we will have "last min" bookers waiting for a good deal...makes it hard to order everything and plan accordingly
