am I making a mistake and missing out?

I only had one lady on my side (my amazing sister-in-law), but made sure that my close girlfriends were able to be part of any part in the wedding and wedding planning that they so chose. My girls were invited to dress fittings (and treated to lunch afterwards), were part of my shower and my bachelorette, talked wedding stuff with me whenever they wanted to (4 of us got married in the same year, so we had so much fun planning together!), and they joined me in the bridal suite for girl time before the ceremony (I paid for their hair and make-up, and gave them thank you gifts, just like I did for MOH). Basically I treated all of my ladies them like I would any other time… as my wonderful friends…. regardless of what title they held in my ceremony. The distinction of maid v non-maid is only as important as you make it out to be. If you treat them well, they will all feel the love. 🙂

I don’t think this is anything to worry about. Ppl do not feel left out

I don’t think they’ll feel left out! If you want to include more people in the ceremony, you could have your reading read by a bunch of people, each reading one verse!

That sounds like a great idea and would be such a nice gesture (and an awesome way to spend the time leading up to your wedding!) I dont think you’re “missing out” necessarily, but the more the merrier if everyone is chill and gets along!
