I would definately keep five! You chose those girls to stand up there with you for a reason right? I dont think it’ll be a big deal if you keep 5. Plus, It might be awkward to tell your best friends nevermind, ya know. If you want them standing up there with you, then go for it 🙂

I say go for it.  we are doing the exact opposite, 1 BM and 1 GM and are having 150-200 people!  So we will look small up there, but heck, our wedding, and this is what we want!

If I were in your shoes I would still have them up there with you. If you’re worried about how it will look at the reception with a big table full of the bridal party and only a few other tables of guests, maybe you can consider doing a sweetheart table and sitting the rest of the bridal party at their own table with the other guests. Thats the only time I think it would look a bit off. I think you should absolutely keep your friends up there during the ceremony. Like the others said, you chose them for a reason and the number of guests had nothign to do with it.

Hi there! I also have a relatively large wedding party (5 guys and gals) and a smaller venue and guestlist. We will be having a sweetheart table at the reception, with FI and I and our Best Man and MOH. We’ve intergrated in the wedding party with the guests.
