  • Wedding: May 2015

@MrsN14:  From what I’ve read on the bee and experienced as my sister’s Maid/Matron of Honor, I think that most bridesmaid-related drama depends on expectations. What do you want from your bridesmaids? What do they think that they have to do? For some people (myself included), eight bridesmaids would be too many. But if your girls are all easy going, and you all agree on their roles, I think that it could work.

For example, you’ve said that your current bridesmaids live in different states. So I don’t see how adding another girl that lives three hours away is any different. My sister’s wedding was similar. However, she knew that there was a big chance that her bridesmaids would not throw her a shower, since we all live far apart.

That said, there will always be one more person that you could add. I think people would be less likely to be upset at not being included if you had only chosen two. The more girls you chose, the more likely someone could get upset at not being involved (“I’m not one of your top ten picks!”). I hope that made sense.
