@Sunflower12:  Honestly, I think 10 is excessive – however, I do have 10 bridesmaids. So far there haven’t been any issues, they all get along really well.

If you are honest with them, they will completely understand. Don’t ignore the situation, tell them how important they are to you, but you just think it will be too much having 10 bridesmaids. Maybe you can include them in another way.

I am a big believer of family first.  I would at least have his littler sister too.

But you are one VERY lucky girl lol I have next to no one…I moved away from my home town almost 10 years ago and we move frequently so I have my Future Sister-In-Law (who is my best friend), my best friend and old room mate (who might not be able to go) and then my FIs childhood friends wife.  If my friend cant go, well be odd numbers. Doesnt bother me though!

But you know what?  If your going to have 7 you might as well make it 10, then no one gets hurt!

Maybe they can be the guestbook attendants or give out the programs?

I would just have the three sisters if I were in your position.  I have 4 bridesmaids (2 sisters, Future Sister-In-Law, 1 friend) and I was wishing i had less at one point

I think 7 is already too many. If I were you I would say your 3 sisters should be Bridesmaid or Best Man and give extra special jobs/ honor to all of your special friends.

10 is definitely a lot! I would try and include his sister though if it’s important to him and to his side of the family. I have my 2 sisters, his sister and 2 of my closest friends. I had to cut out one of my close friends to include his sister (we didn’t want more than 5 BMS/GM). I felt bad I had to exclude her (she was fine with it) but family does come first to me.  I’ve included her in all the wedding festivities though and we’ve all had a blast.

Even 7 is too many if you ask me.  Just have your sisters and maybe your best friend as Maid/Matron of Honor.  If your friends are offended that you chose your family over them then they’re probably not that good of friends anyway.
