    We are having about 150 ppl and we are having 3 attendants on each side. 

     BTW, I am totally jealous.  I started off thinking we’d have 75 people max, and my mom and Future Mother-In-Law shot that idea right down.

    I think only an Maid/Matron of Honor is perfectly fine. That’s exactly what I’m doing and it’s cut out any bridesmaid drama — which I couldn’t be happier about!

    Here is my opinon on bridesmaids: You should be able to look back at your wedding party in 20 years and not regret including or not including any one individual (man or women).  I would hate for someone to look back and feel sad that you had to cut one of your closests friends because "there wasn’t enough room at the alter".  In that case just have your maids sit in a pew and have only your Maid/Matron of Honor stand with you.

    In the reverse case I would also hate to look back and be annoyed I included a friend I wasn’t that close to just to make her happy.

    If you are really concerned about the size of the group I would go with a Maid/Matron of Honor and then make my friends "honorary bridesmaids".  Invite them to help you get ready, include them in other bridal festivites, etc.  I always really liked that idea.

    Just dont let the size of your wedding dictate who can or cannot be involved in your day!  Its YOUR day!

    I voted for just the Maid/Matron of Honor.  I’m not sure if you were exaggerating, but if you feel like it would have to be none or seven, that’s a lot.  It’s best not to have any of them, then they can’t feel slighted.  The rest of the girls will understand, especially if there is no one else in the Bridal Party.  IT sounds l;ike with less than 50 guests, they should feel honored just to be invited.

    And to be honest, I do feel like seven BMs for a wedding with 50 guests, is a little much.

    I voted for only Maid/Matron of Honor.  With so few guests having 7 BMs and if you also have 7 Groomsmen, the it will seem like half of your guests are part of the bridal party.  Plus, if the church can’t accomadate many people on your sides, then I think the logistics of it all provided you with your answer.
