I need some opinions and/or etiquette knowledge thrown upon me please 🙂
This will be both of our second wedding. We will be having a smaller wedding (100 guests)and not SUPER fancy.
What are your thoughts about the wedding party.
My fiance really wants to have 5 men in his party – and we have broken it down to 4 – and having one of his brothers officiate.
My question is this….
Is it tacky to have that big of a bridal party?
How would you feel if your friend was getting married again and asked you to be in the wedding again?
Any other suggestions would be lovely… thanks in advance!

Not tacky at all to have a bridal party for a second wedding. I would be more lenient on my attendants though, especially the ones that already had to foot expenses at the first wedding. I would be happy for my friend getting remarried but I might be a little upset at having to buy another bridesmaid dress and kick in for another bridal shower or bachelorette party.
For my second wedding I skipped having a bachelorette party and I told my Maid/Matron of Honor she didn’t need to plan a bridal shower. I also gave my attendants parameters of what I wanted them to wear but then I let them buy what they wanted within their own budgets.

@beachbride1216: Thanks so much for the reply 🙂 This sounds along the lines of what I was thinking – and I am loving the trend of mismatched dresses – so it could work out perfectly.
