Ours might be giant..not sure.  Right now wre’re at 12 in the bridal party..that might go up to 14 or even 16.  It’s more huge relative to the size of our wedding…less than 50 guests including us.  

 

We’re playing with other ideas too because we really do see it as being surrounded by the people we love.  We’re actually going to have coed sides and mix up the bridesmaids and groomsmen.

You know what, you are totally right. I hadn’t even noticed that I cringed every time someone asked, and why should we?? I have a huge family (yes we are Catholic, but we don’t go to church all the time) and so I have a lot of cousins that I have grown up with and I could not imagine not having them as my bridesmaids. So we have 11 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen. In addition to that, we have 1 matron of honor, 1 best man, and 1 ‘padrino’ who is my FI’s other best friend and he also happens to be married to my matron of honor.

In total we have 25 in our bridal party not counting ourselves and our parents.

I’m also happy to say that I have not had any real drama in dealing with my bridesmaids and that says a lot because I have read some horror stories with brides who only have 2 or 3 bridesmaids. 

I can’t wait for the big day and our BIG bridal party!! 🙂

I am the same way! I want to have 9…and draw a line there.. but even at 9 it gets sticky. I dont think I can do 10…but dont want hard feelings. Who knew such an exciting could be questionable. I love my girls and want them apart. What are other unique ways to get them envolved?

Let’s see.  I have 1 Matron of Honor, 1 Maid of Honor, 8BM, 1 Junior BM, 2 Flower girls, FI has 2 Bestmen, 8 GM, 1 Junior GM, 1 ring bearer, 1 bible carrier, 1 sign carrier.  That brings us to a grand total of 27 total in my bridal party. 

Almost forgot I have 4 Usherettes!  I just couldn’t look back years from now and them not be in my pictures.
