    porscha bell.:  You are free to have as many as you like…. keep in mind…. the more girls the more opinions, drama, and cost for you (gifts and if you are paying for hair, makeup, dresses, etc)

    porscha bell.:  I don’t think it’s tacky at all, but I do think it invites a lot more stress and potential for drama. Not to mention money!

    It’s not tacky, but it does sound awful (for you).  Imagine trying to get 16 people anywhere on time, or to agree on anything.

    I also always find it hard to beleive that you are equally close to all 8 members on each side.  Usually large numbers mean you have included someone because you included someone else, and X would get upset because they are both cousins, friends from the same group, long time friends etc.

    But it is certainly not tacky.  Have whomever you like.

    porscha bell.:  I don’t think its tacky first of all. Second, personally, I didn’t want a big wedding party because it just gets to complicated! Granted that may not be the situation for you (and I hope its not) but most of the time, its too much drama. 

    I think 8 is a good solid number, for me, a large or too big wedding party is when you start going into the double digits lol

    I would start spreading out the gift expenses now- look for stuff on sale, price compare.

    I had 6 girls and I did that- I saved my self a ton of $$ on gifts but even with that I  still spent close to $500 dollars on their gifts.

    porscha bell.:  I’m having 10 girls and 10 guys and everyone have been like that an army your having. ..yup an army of those who I would do almost anything for and know that they would do the same for me. Gifts yea that going to cost a pretty penny with so much people. I saved the headache of dress drama by picking 25 dresses I liked and allowed them to choose a style. I having about 220-230 people (hoping that number drops tho) and think since it a good size wedding that it still looks nice. I go with the motto do what you love and want (within reason) on you and your SO big day.

    Ah…I’m going to go against the grain and say I think it’s tacky. I have always personally disliked large (i.e., more than 4 per side) wedding parties. I think pictures look silly, with an army of bridesmaids and groomsmen. Also, I have  known too many people who have had large wedding parties and included people who really aren’t that close to them (e.g., FI’s cousin who the bride met twice). But, keep in mind, this is just my opinion and MANY people would disagree with me. I would just encourage you to really think about whether all those people are important and close enough to you to be included. If the answer is yes, then that is great!
