My Fi and I both have a large group of close friends who have been a huge part of our relationship and our life together now. He has three brothers and I have three sisters and two brothers. We both lost our Mom’s, his seven years ago and mine four years ago. Wedding planning is hard enough without them so I want as many close family and friends with me in this process. Right now our bridal party list is at 20, ten Bridesmaid or Best Man, ten Groomsmen. Is this riduculous? I cant imagine this day without any of them! Any advice?

I also have 10 bridesmaids and love it! I’m 31 and have acquired many great friendships over the decades. Those 10 girls helped shape who I am and have been there for me so much that I can’t imagine my wedding without them. My fiance has less friends and is going to do 6. I realized, I just need to be okay that the wedding party is going to be asymmetrical, some people may think it’s funny or weird, and it’s going to be a tad moe expensive. I think it’s all worth it and it makes your wedding unique.
My tip is to just get the bridesmaids gifts early so that way you can look for sales! Good luck!

Thanks for the imput! And I’ve already started on gifts and I haven’t even formally asked the girl 🙂

We’re having a pretty big bridal party… 1 moh/bm and then 7 bm/gm. So we are at 18 with us. So it’s a big number, but they are all important people to us. With spouses & significant others our bridal party number is at 36 (including a jr bridesmaids & ring bearer). So we’re not going to be able to have a small rehearsal dinner, but all the people who are the most important to us will be a part of our day!
