    @kayjay612:  I say have everyone. Family is family and if you know they’ll be expecting it…and you also shouldn’t have to leave out your friends because of it.

    I think you should definitely have your two best friends. And if you then want to have your SIL to avoid a drama, do that. I don’t think it matters that the numbers are uneven, and I think it will be kinda fun having such a big bridal party, and really it’s only your SIL that you’re umming and ahhing about. If she ends up being difficult, just don’t involve her in the details, you’ll have 5 other supportive BM’s to help you as needed.

    Pick who you want to have stand up with you. Once you start picking out of obligation is when trouble seems to happen.

    I’m not sure what to do about who to specifically invite but from experience i can say to you, do your best to keep it small.  I wish I had done so. More people has just equalled more drama and stress for me and less enjoyment of the process.
