I am only having around 100 people, and 5 bridesmaids. I think it is fine, you can do whatever you’d like. The only thing you need to consider is how you’re going to do the head table. I prefer my BMs to sit with their SOs, which means a head table with our bridal party is unreasonable (it’d be 20+ people at a 100 person wedding).

You really shouldn’t care about what guests think. Each bridesmaid should be chosen based on how important she is to you. That number could be 2, it could be 10. Cutting 2 because of what your guests will think makes you a bad friend to your bridemaids. However, cutting 2 bridesmaids bc they were only included out of obligation the entire time…well that’s different and probably just fine.

We’re having 50 people and 10 of ’em are in the wedding party as bridesmaids and groomsmen (12 if you count flower girls)! My FSMIL gave me a funny look about it but it’s how we want it so that’s how it’ll be. I say go for it!

Have as many as you like. I will have 200 people and 9 BMs. I wouldnt feel right if a couple of them were not standing by my side.

Do whatever you want and dont worry about it if people think you have too many. They can have as many BMs as they want too! Wink
