Just surveying the bee community
How many bridesmaids are you having in your bridal party? The biggest number I have seen is 10 (and that was only on youtube) Im having three in mine, seemed like a cruisy number

I’m having 4. This was more than I was initially expecting and when I’ve told people I have 4 bridesmaids people have been like “Woah! That’s a lot!”. I have my two sisters, my best friend in the world and another really close friend who pulled the whole “If I’m not a bridesmaid I’m gonna be so devastated!” thing. Turns out she’s been fantastic but it was a bit full on at the time! LOL

I’m having 4, my two sisters, and two closest friends. I didn’t want to have more than 4, because I was in a wedding last year that had 7 BMs, 2 junior BMs, and 2 flowergirls, plus 7 groomsmen and a ringbearer, plus the bride and groom. The photographer had to zoom out to get pictures of all of us! It was just ridiculous.

I have 6 but wish I had less, it really does make it hard with all the planning for the day of.
It has been awesome though because each one has helped me in their own way.

None! We are having it in my hometown and barely anybody can come for the groom’s side. It would be really hard to choose my bridesmaids and I’d end up with like 10, whereas my groom wouldn’t even have one to choose from.. It would be like a slap in the face, I feel.

I had 6 but I wish I hadn’t picked one girl because she went crazy afterwards

I’m having 7. I have 4 sisters, and my three closest friends. Having my sisters was a given, and I couldn’t have chosen between my three friends so I’m having them all. I haven’t had any problems. It’s actually been really nice because they all have helped with one thing or another. I have a massive family, so the wedding party is huge. My two brothers are also groomsmen. My two nephews are ring bearers, plus his two nephews. And my flower girl is my niece.

Just one, and Fiance and I couldn’t be happier with our choice 🙂

I have 5 and 1 jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man. I too have regrets about asking at least two of the BMs.

3. I didn’t want many, but I definitely can think of 3 more who I would include if we decided to go bigger. Actually, 4 more.
I feel like as soon as I open it up to another ‘level’ of friends/relatives, it seems to grow exponentially.

I really wanted 4 including my Maid/Matron of Honor, but the way the numbers shake out, I’ll be at 5. For whatever reason that one extra person makes me feel like the party is too big, but there’s a group of 3 close friends where I can’t really include one without the other, plus my Future Sister-In-Law, and then my Maid/Matron of Honor (a cousin).

5 including my MOH- I don’t have a sister, but my Fiance does so it’s his sister (and my brother is a groomsman), 2 friends from college, a friend from after college and a cousin. I only have 1 girl cousin on one side of my family so it was an obvious choice

I have 6 – my sister (MOH), my Future Sister-In-Law, and 4 of my best friends. Three of those four friends, there is no way I could have one without the others so 5 was the minimum I could have gone with the bridal party. I’ve had no problems with it though and its the same size party as two others weddings I’ve been in and it worked out/looked great!
