Counting just the weddings I been in as an adult 6, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to be in my friends wedding once she sets a date. The majority of my experiences have been great. I still love attending and going to weddings. However I just don’t really want to do them anymore, I think seven is enough. What about you guys do you have limit for the amount of weddings you want to be in? Thoughts/comments?

I’ll definitely stand up for my sister if she asks, but anyone else…I’m not sure. It’s so expensive anymore that I’m not sure I’ll be able to afford it. There are also very few women in my life that I’m willing to dedicate that kind of time and money to.

I will be a Bridesmaid or Best Man again – but only for good friends!
I was in one wedding when I wasn’t sure why I was asked (I kinda seemed liked the filler person) to make the sides even!!! It was a pain and more money than I wanted to spend on that person!!!!

I have a couple best friends that are not yet married, and I will be in their weddings, but if it’s anyone other than that, I may have to decline.

I love being a bridesmaid…but I think that’s because I’ve been blessed with being a part of some pretty amazing wedding parties. If I had some of the experiences that other Bees have shared on here, my answer might be different! I still have a few girls yet to tie the knot in my social circle (plus my sister)! If any of them should ask, I will be there in a heartbeat! 🙂

I’ve never been a Bridesmaid or Best Man, but I know I’ll be one for my three best friends and can’t WAIT! Being a “filler” Bridesmaid or Best Man like PP mentioned sounds obnoxious, though. Fiance and I had a long discussion about our bridal part – he wanted five Groomsmen, I only wanted 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man, and I refused to pick gals who weren’t my best friends just so it’s even. He eventually agreed to have his other buds be an usher and a reader.

I can’t imagine being asked to be a bridesmaid again, everyone in my bridal party has already been married. I have one friend who was married and divorced pretty young so maybe if she gets remarried?
I’m not too torn up about it.

I’ve been in 1 each of the past 2 years. This year’s was not bad. One of my very best friends, no drama, very easy planning process. The one I was in last year was extremely stressful. I had agreed to stand up for my male friend, yet somehow was dragged into all the female events (shower, bachelorette, etc) even though I was not very close with the bride. There was so much drama, I somehow ended up being the one to plan the whole bachelorette, and was out a lot of money for it too, which rubbed me the wrong way (keep in mind, I was also contributing to the bachelor party). That one put a bad taste in my mouth, and I wouldn’t mind taking a year off from being in anyone’s wedding. So, sorry friends, but if you get married next year, I think I’ll pass.
