You do not need to ask everyone for whom you were a bridesmaid to be in your wedding party. In fact they may appreciate you not asking them. They have likely had an expensive year and accepting your invitation will incur costs.

9 bridesmaids does not say simple, low key wedding to me.

I agree with @julies1949–you don’t need to invite everyone for whom you were a bridesmaid to be in your party as well…not only that, but being in a wedding party is a lot of work (and financial responsibility) so sometimes it’s a relief to people not to be asked.

If you’re worried about their feelings being hurt, you can always call them and explain the situation. You can even ask them to do a reading for you to include them.

Personally, 9 bridesmaids is too much for my tastes. It makes planning everything, from the dress to the parties to the table assignments way more complicated than it needs to be. It can be a logistical nightmare to align schedules, and it makes the processional painfully long for the guests. And increases your chance for drama, exponentially.
