Happy Friday Bees!
FI and I are currently having a slight disagreement. Here we are, and I thought we had our bridal party set in stone. YES, we are having a large bridal party.
8 bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen, 2 FG, and 2 RB!
We both have large familys and lots of siblings, and I’m completely OK with having a bridal party of 22 (including us).
Now, groom wants to add another FG, to make it THREE precious little ones. The two we have is our nieces, and the other he wants to add is his cousins daughter. I LOVE this little girl and it has nothing to do with anyone personally, I just feel that it’s TOO MUCH! we already have a large bridal party.
His argument is its his wedding too, we are surrounded by lots of kiddies who we adore, and why cant this just happen? I tried to tell him we are not the royal couple (Kate had a handful of girls), but we are just not agreeing.

I agree that your bridal party is very large. At the same time, when it’s already that large, I don’t think it’s worth arguing over one more little girl, especially when he seems to care about her enough to want her in the bridal party.

imo you already got 22 …23 won’t really make much of a big difference

IDK but I think one more couldn’t hurt. How about having her or one or two of the other FG holding a “here comes the bride sign”?

@mandb122: yes, it is large. we are having a pretty big wedding. around 230 guests. We are surrounded by large families and wonderful friends we just couldnt leave anyone out 🙂
@luvmyDwight: I was tossing that idea around too.

Not worth the fight. It’s just one more person in an already large bridal party. I don’t really see how it would make that much of a difference, and if your fiance really wants the third girl why not let her be in it too?

I also say not worth the fight. We had almost as many as you did, and it’s a lot of fun! I say the more the merrier at this point!

@Hollymarieee: I think it is not worth arguing over at this point… Its one more person so it is not bad… Good Luck with this

One more will not make a difference and I always say, the more the marrier 🙂 I love @luvmyDwight’s idea of having one of the FG’s carry a here comes the bride sign.

Not worth the fight. And just think of the pictures with FG-RB-FG-RB-FG all lined up being cute–odd numbers are great for photo groupings 🙂

I’m sorry, I’m chuckling over here that you think one little FG is just gonna push it over the top. LOL. So the answer is no, not worth the fight.

yep. that’s my opinion as well – one more will actually add to the fun. just think how your wedding pictures with your flower girls will look like with three instead of two. 🙂 let your FI have his say on this – better negotiating power for you when he nixes that photobooth or that chocolate fountain you want included. 🙂

If you are already counting on 22, what’s 23 gonna do? I say go for it. There are going to be other, more important things to disagree over about your day.
