hello,My sister getting married and she has a bridesmaid problem. she wants her 2 sisters (me and step sister), 2 close cousins and 2 close friends. but here is the problem, she has 2 other cousins she grew up with as well, and future husband has 2 sisters and a SIL. she is not sure what to do. if she add her other two cousins that 8 total and she seems ok with that but what about the sisters to the future husband? does she politly ask them? she is semi close to the FH’s sisters but then again not. what a girl to do? Fh’s sisters dont ask my sister to hangout or do anything ever with her or their brother but feels like it would be a nice gesure to ask them.
any advice?!?! please help

My future sister-in-law had 9 girls stand beside her at her wedding…
She had ALL sisters, sister-in-law (plus me, future sister-in-law) of both herself, and her now-husband in the bridal party, plus one of her dearest friends.
To me, 9 was a massive number, but it meant a LOT to her to have us all there beside her (along with the brothers and associated gentlemen)
It’s up to the bride, she can have as many or as few at she likes and is comfortable with 🙂

It might be best to include the in-laws just to avoid any drama or hurt feelings.

@jacklakin: There is no need to add the future sisters-in-law. They are close to the groom, not the bride. The bride chooses girls close to her.
If she’s worried that if she asks one cousin she has to ask them all, then I suggest she asks no cousins at all, leaving only 4 BMs, which is a good number. Otherwise, if the other two cousins are less close for a good reason (e.g. less close due to age), then just asking the original 6 should be ok. I feel like 8 is a bit much, especially if it’s done just to include every female cousin.
