I only had two and it was perfect for us.  I really wanted the two girls I care about most to stand beside me, no regrets.

I’m having 2, my sister and my bestie. If it makes you feel better, in Australia most people have 2, maybe 3. The only 4 bridesmaid wedding I’ve ever been to was a girl who had 4 sisters.

i’m only having two. for me, i decided that if i had to think twice about someone as a bridesmaid, then it’s probably better to have them as a guest.  i think a smaller bridal party will be less of a hassle to coordinate.

I’m just having my sister and that is it. Makes things much easier and is a lot cheaper.

I’m having two. Also my sister and my best friend since middle school. I thought about doing a third, but our friendship has a tendancy to have its highs and lows and large periods where we are to busy for each other, so just in case something went sour, I stuck with the two that I KNEW nothing would change with during my two year engagement. My Fiance is only having two groomsmen: his dad and his brother, so it worked out fine.

I wish I was only having 2 πŸ™‚ Smaller the number less drama

Each of my daughters had just two…they were each other’s Maid/Matron of Honor and had the groom’s only sister in one wedding, and a close cousin in the other. Much,much easier!

Glad to hear you feel better about 2 bridesmaids. πŸ™‚ That’s what I chose for our wedding. My sister and a friend from grad school were who I selected. It is easier to coordinate.

I personally think 2 is perfect – I am having two. I’m also having a smaller wedding though (~50 ppl)

I have one- my sister and my fiance has his best man (who may not even be able to come). I wanted a few but with one being 6’3″ one being 4″10 and one being 315lbs, it was just too much to find dresses and hear about the money issues so I just got my sister and it is perfect!
