I’m having 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 5 other BMs so a total of 6. He has 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 5 Groomsmen.

we are inviting about 230 people and guaranteed our venue a minimum of 150 people. I have seen bridal parties of all different sizes and I wouldnt worry if it looks weird. I cant imagine anyone would care.

I don’t think this is strange at all. I think it would be silly to include people in your wedding party just to “bulk it up” πŸ˜‰ Trust your heart.

100 guests – one best man and one maid of honor.

We are working on a budget – plus if I started asking friends to be bridesmaids I don’t know where it would end. Much more practical just to have one, and avoid hurt feelings all around.

Your wedding party can be whatever you want.  In fact, smaller parties are almost always less drama. 

I personally had one Maid/Matron of Honor, and 3 bridesmaids, and my husband had a best man and two groomsmen.  I thought that was a pretty good size, but I wouldn’t add people just for the sake of having a larger party.

Not even engaged yet, but I have always known that on my wedding day I only want one person (besides SO) standing up there with me, and that’s my big sister.

I’m sure it will look fine! It’s when you have a large bridal party and a small guest count that it get s alittle funy. πŸ˜› The other way around is no problem at all!

If you just start adding people u may have some of the situations that I read about on here every day.

@bzzzybee:  Stick with one attendant for you and your Fiance.  Seriously.  Everything will be less complicated, and your guests won’t even think about the number in your bridal party.  Nothing wrong with keeping it simple!

@bzzzybee:  I would say it’s your day and you should have as many or as few attendants as both you want and your budge will allow. πŸ™‚ My Fiance and I are having 5 attendants each but we wanted to have both friends and family members to stand for us! πŸ™‚ And we are having about 150 (invited) but about 100 actually coming. πŸ™‚
