Hey Bees! I’m having TWELVE bridesmaids (men don’t have groomsmen in my country btw), so I was hoping to find some bees that will be having lots of bridesmaids too 🙂 How many are you having? How many do you think is the “right” amount of bridesmaids to have? I hope I’m not alone in this haha

My first question is why do you need so many?
I chose to have none and there’s no amount that is “right.”

janvier : I don’t “need” so many bridesmaids, I “want” many bridesmaids because I have many close friends. I was just asking if any other bee was having a many bridesmaids and their opinions about what they consider big.

WOW it should be a lot of fun to have 12 bridesmaid dresses! I am having 5 bridesmaids!

pbcgab : my inlaws all had double digit bridesmaids and that was all anyone could look at or talk about. I can’t tell you want was said or what type of dress the bride wore, but I can tell you it looked ridiculous to have 10-15 bridesmaids. I personally consider anything over 5 excessive and showy. Good luck bee, I cannot imagine having to take 12 woman with 12 different opinions shopping for dresses. Or dealing with the drama from 12 different women.

Hi Bee! Congrats on your wedding! I am having 8 bridesmaids including a Maid of Honor and a Matron of Honor. My FH is having 9 Groomsmen including his best man. We also have my nephew and my cousin as “People of Honor” They will be walking out in honor of my mom who passed away last year.
I don’t think their is any right or wrong number or a number that is “too many”. I think it is whatever works for you!

I have six girls and sometimes feel like it’s too many 😉 (not really, just lots of strong opinions). The biggest I’ve seen was 15 and, to me, it was too much. It must have been the perfect amount for that bride though!
You do you, lady.

pbcgab : Don’t let anybody get you down about this, your bridal party is your choice! Some like it small and some like it big. I thought mine was super sized at 8 (sisters and 1 best friend), but I loved being surrounded and supported by my favorite people.
