My two BM’s don’t know each other, so far there has been no issues.

I never felt uncomfortable asking my gals to be in the wedding party, if you ARE uncomfortable maybe it’s a sign that you shouldn’t ask them.

Also, if you want to ask all three of them, there is NO rule that says your FI has to find two others to ask.

Bottom line – just do what you want to do and what makes you happy.

I think some of this depends on what you expect your bridal party to do.  I’m having 2 girls (my cousins) who live in different states, plus my 17 year-old brother.  I’m not expecting a bridal shower.  I expect that I will go out drinking some night before the wedding, but am not expecting a traditional bachelorette party.

I think if you basically just want them to walk down the aisle, it doesn’t matter if they don’t know each other.  If you are expecting all of the traditional stuff, it might be awkward for them if they are very shy or you think they have personalities that might clash.

I agree that it’s all about what YOU want and feel comfortable with. I don’t think it’ll be a problem that the BMs don’t know each other.

Personally, I’m going with just my sister as MOH, and my fiance is having his brother as his best man. We both have friends we could choose if we wanted a bigger wedding party, but that’s not what we wanted.
