@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug:  I think you will run into issues with everyone you listed. Kristen is now married so she may not have the time for all that weddings require. Kate may become unrealiable. Remi may not be able to afford it. The singer may be your best bet. I mad my MOH-my baby sister- sing at our wedding. The officient just handed her the mic.

Would your FI be willing to keep the wedding party smaller or would you be willing to have uneven numbers??

I say go smaller and just have the 5 yoyu have chosen already..the fact that you can’t decide shows that none of these other girls need to be in the bridal party 🙂

Less is better. (I had two on each side). Only have people you are certain of. So I say stick with the 5 you trust, and if your FI-to-be is set on having 7 guys, then have 5 on each side and 2 male ushers. Besides, where will they all stand?

I know many people like big bridal parties, but you could also go entirely the other way and only have two BMs (best friend and FSIL). That way no college friend can complain about missing out. Apart from my sister, my only BM had been my best friend since about age 10. I had her chosen as BM about 10 years earlier 🙂

I realise there are other issues with Remi, but I would never exclude anyone on cost.

Also if May 2014 really is the planned date, many people would advise to wait a few months before asking BMs. (Perhaps ask your best friend only initially).
