So, after watching last night’s episode of four weddings with the girl that had like 35 people in her bridal party and finally having my last bridesmaid say yes, I am just curious…
How many in your bridal party? Why’d you pick that number? Was it decided on by your venue size?

We only had one each. We had a small wedding so if we had 30 on each side that would have been more than the wedding!

I had 4 girls. I picked 4 of our fave ladies. = ) And It just seemed intimate enough for our wedding.

10. I settled on that number because I had 5 very good friends that I wanted to be in my bridal party. I told FI he could have any number he wanted, but he said he wanted 5 to.
It wouldn’t matter where I got married, I would still have the same 5 on my side. Even if I got married in my tiny kitchen, I’d still have those 5.

I am having two and FI is having 1 – 2.
I picked that number because I have two sisters. I also have some friends but I felt they are not close enough to me like my sisters are. Also, the less people you have, the easier to manage the timeline.

We only have three each. I wanted to keep the party small.

We have 2 each. My sister, a good friend, his brother and his best friend.

i somehow ended up with 6 on my side and my FI has 2. we are having a small beach wedding, so i kinda regret asking so many people, but some of them i felt obligated to…but i know it will be on the day and wont matter.

We have 3 bridesmaids (my 3 best friends), 3 groomsmen (FI’s brother and 2 friends), 2 ushers (my younger cousins) and 1 ring bearer (my youngest cousin). I never anticipated having an 11 person WP (including us) but we couldn’t not include any of them.

Six on each side, plus little ones. I always knew I would ask my three sisters and three longtime BFs. I was bound to have a larger wedding party when I started with three sisters, haha. Guest list/venue size didn’t have anything to do with it. 🙂

total of 8. 4 on each side of us, well including the flower girl and ring bearer 10.

We had four on each side. It just happened to work out that way with who we wanted to be in the wedding party. We wanted our closest friends (and DH wanted his sister) so that determined it.

I currently have two bridesmaids secured. I may have up to four depending. I’m an only child, and my FI has three brothers and three friends he’d like to include- but there’s no way I can come up with six, so either we’ll be uneven, or he’ll have to stick to just brothers… or.. I don’t know. No more than 8 total.
