It is really up to you!  There is no set rule as far as number of attendants goes, but IMO 5 BMs might be a lot for a smaller wedding.  You could just cut to your sister and Maid/Matron of Honor if that is what you want.  BUT if you want all 5 ladies standing up there with you, then go for it!  It’s your wedding 🙂

I think it would be rough to cut bridesmaids you have already asked, so i would keep them. There are no rules as to how many attendants you can have, plus you never know who might drop out because your having a destination wedding.

I agree with @dance. Do whatever you want. I don’t think 5 is too large for a # even if it’s a small wedding. Think about how you want your pictures to be.. if you want to have a bunch of pictures with them included than have them as Bridesmaid or Best Man, if not than just stick to your sisters or none.

I agree with dance–go with whatever you want. And I’d let your feelings and your relationships with the individuals dictate this, not concerns over how it “goes” with a small wedding. If you really love your 5 friends and want them to be part of your day in that way, then do it.
