- Wedding: May 2011
From the beginning I only wanted 3 bridesmaids. We are inviting 100 guests so I thought 3 was an appropriate number. Well…FH basically HAS to have 5, no less. I’m personally not a fan of uneven bridal parties but whatever, I would have 3 and he can have 5. Well now he tells me that he really needs 6 b/c he basically already asked his friend. UGH!!! The logical person in me is thinking thats too many people, too much coordination, those damn boys better behave and wow its going to make groomsmen gifts and bouts more expensive. But then a thought popped into my head. If he has 6 than I can add my 3 cousins I had been contemplating putting in the wedding. But then thats a 12 person bridal party for a 100 person wedding. Is that too much?! Should I just tell him he needs to cap it at 5 and I will have my 3? Advice would be helpful here. Just keep in mind he will not have less than 5.
