      I have 1 moh ( my big sister) and 1 bridesmaid and my Fi's niece is a flower girl. My fi has his 3 brothers as his groomsmen/ bestman. We're an uneven number, doesn't bother me.

        Ive been struggling with the idea of not even having a BP. How far ahead of the wedding is an appropriate time to ask people to be in your BP(if we have one)?

        If you are simply going to ask a guest who is already booked and confirmed as attending your wedding to stand up for you and wear something simple, then I think it's ok to wait until 3-6 months out from the wedding, however if you are wanting to ask someone specific I would let them know as far in advance as possible to allow them the time to save money for attending you DW. Also dresses can take anywhere from 4-6+ months to deliver/alter so you would want to leave time for this if it was important. It would be the financial impact of asking someone last minute to travel for my wedding that made me want to make sure I talked to "my girls" early enough to make it more manageable for them to attend.

        I have 4 girls 4 guys. ..had 5 of each but one guy and one gal backed out which I knew they would because we are having destination wedding and I knew they wouldn't save money despite them saying they would. ..gave them 2 yrs notice lok..but I'm happy with my 4 each...better symmetry for pics ;)
        Like many of you I had troubles picking because I had so many but my fiancé is bad at keeping in touch with his friends but he manage to come up with enough ;)
        worst case scenario we would of went with an uneven number...its destination I'd say anything goes..

        Depends!   The dresses I ordered my ladies take 14 weeks to come in (nuts right?) and with alterations and such, we will be right on time for my January wedding.  I ordered them in mid July.

        Well, this was a sore spot for me.


        When we got engaged and decided on a wedding location, date, etc. my fiance got so excited he just went and asked 3 people to be in his party.


        That left me having to find 3 and it was tough.  I was always of the mind set I was NOT asking anyone to be in my bridal party until I knew they could come to the wedding.  I didn't want anyone to feel pressure to go if they could not afford it, etc.


        I ended up with 2, and my 3rd option isn't coming.  I have 2 sisters, so I wasn't sure what to do.  In the end 1 said yes and 1 said no so it all worked out.


        Phew, so 3 bridesmaids for me :)

        My son will be the ring bearer and my daughter the flower girl!!  they are super excited.

        I am having a best friend as my MOH, and two future sister-in-laws as bridesmaids, plus the daughter of a very good friend as a flower girl. I'm not thrilled about asking one of the sister-in-laws (she's the wife of my fiance's brother) but it's the right thing to do so Im sucking it up.

        After lots of discussions with my fiance, we decided to go with a MoH (my sister), BM (his best friend), flower girl, and ring bearer (my cutie pie cousins). It's easier this way, and I was having a moral dilemma over asking my girlfriends to pay even more when they are shelling out considerable $$ to join me on my special day. This also saves us money (bridal party gifts) and stress/time!
