I am thinking of having only 2 bridesmaids..is that weird? All the photos I have seen and stories I’ve heard…There always seems to be like 3-4. One is going to be my sister and one, my BFF.
I just want to have someone that I feel REALLY close to, like family…and unfortunately that narrows it down to just those two. A lot of my friends are overseas as well which doesn’t help and I moved country to country in my 20s so had a hard time building long, meaningful friendships 🙁

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 only had 1. Have whoever you want there!

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 🙂 Smaller the number less drama

thanks guys! I just read a similar post that was posted day ago (about having one bridesmaid) so it was interesting to read their responses.
I will be having the two then 🙂 Thanks!! It makes me feel sooo good to know I’m having the 2 girls I love most next to me !!

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. 🙂 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 had 2 as well. 🙂 Those were the people closest to me that I could imagine being up there for me!

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!
