Personally, I don’t feel like they should be upset. Idk them though.

I don’t see the big deal or issue. If they are truly your good friends and can see that you only have family in the bridal party. I’m 29 and my friends are 28-34 and at this age we don’t care about all that. I don’t know them so I could be wrong but that’s my 2 cents…

liza8402:  I think you explain it to them exactly as you wrote in your post, that they mean a lot to you, and if you were having a larger wedding party then they would definitely have been the next people you would have asked. Maybe mention that you want to spare them the added expense of having to buy a dress, accessories, etc. that comes with being a bridesmaid. Maybe consider including them in some of the other wedding ‘events’ – bachelorette, dress shopping, etc.

FH and I (we’re 30 too) were in a similar situation when we chose our bridal party. But, decided that we wanted a small party- as in my MOH and his BM only.  one was upset at all!

liza8402:  were you in these gfs’ bridal parties and did you get ready with them? There could be some hurt feelings and they might not care about the expense or about getting ready w their husbands. If you are so close to these friends, you might regret not having them with you. I’d suggest picking based on your closest friends/relatives instead of based on a number. I’ve seen others who pick based on numbers and feel bad later when some of their closest friends aren’t in their bridal party. Often it’s too late to fix

when is your wedding? If it’s over a year away, it can be better to wait to make the decision.
