Pick who you are more likely to still be close with in 10-20 years. You want to look at your photos and be happy, not think ‘oh I wish I had asked x instead of y’

My aunt still talks about how one of her bridesmaids she hasn’t talked to since about 6months post wedding, and how she wishes she had asked one of her cousins that she has always been close to.

Charishieke:  I think you are thinking about this backwards. You should ask yourself, “Who are my nearest and dearest that I absolutely want to stand next to me at my wedding?”, not “I want three bridesmaids, so who can fill the spots?”

merpitymerp:  agreed! I’m going to have 6 bridesmaids which is more than I ever thought I would. I was initially worried about it, but my mom made a good point, you should have the people you care about up there, don’t worry about the numbers. Every girl I am having as a bridesmaid is there for a good reason, these are the people I want with me when I get married, that’s all that matters.

I agree with these ladies.  Don’t think about it in terms of a number of spots to fill- think about who you want getting ready with you, and standing beside you.  The number of bridesmaids and groomsmen don’t have to be equal.  (Although keep in mind that the more maids you ask the more expensive it will be in terms of gifts/bouquets/etc.)

Charishieke:  I’m a little confused as to what you mean by “I have chosen to have three bridesmaids” but you don’t know who the 3rd is.  It sounds like you are forcing yourself into having a third.  So just have two!
