No way! It’s your wedding, you should do what makes you happy! 🙂

We’re having approx. 100 people, and I’ve got four bridesmaids.

No, no Teeleaf… I think 4 is fine.  I don’t think it has to be in proportion to the size of your wedding.  One of my friends had 120 people, and 11… yes, 11 bridesmaids!  While I think that was a lot, I also don’t think there has to be a direct correlation between wedding size and wedding party size.

We’re having 150 people (no more please!) and 6 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen.  I think it will be fine.  You want your wonderful friends there supporting you!

I have 7 bridesmaid and about 100 guests.  Do whatever you want.  By The Way, 4 seems like the average anyways.

No way!  Four is a really reasonable number, no matter how big your wedding is!  I am having 4 (3 Bridesmaid or Best Man and one Jr. BM) for my wedding, and we are having less than 100 guests.

I am having two maids of honor and two bridesmaids for a 75 person wedding. I say four BMs is just fine!

I agree. 

I think there is some sort of rule of thumb. (Like 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man for every 50 ppl.) But that is a guideline.  4 BMs for 100 ppl doesn’t seem weird at all.  The only thing that etiquette ladies really seem concerned with is having so many attendants that there are more people in the Bridal Party than sitting in the pews.

4 if perfectly fine!  If you have 4 wonderful ladies then you are lucky to have them by your side that day, there’s no actual rule that limits you, just do what makes you happy.

We are planning for 75-80 people and three bridesmaids. I don’t think four is too many. Good Luck !

I was at one with about 75 guests, and she had 8 bridesmaids – it honestly didn’t seem weird at all. I remember being surprised at how many bridesmaids she had, but then I just thought it was great that she had so many close friends to include.
