I am wondering about how many bridesmaids I should have.
Dear Fiance is only going to have a best man and does not want any grooms men. He is not going to change his mind on this, as he says groomemen don’t do much and because our budget is so tight. However, I have to have my sister as one, and I was head bridesmaid at another wedding, so have to have that friend. Then, I’d really like to have my childhood best friend as a bridesmaid too. She is the one I want the most, but I can’t offend my other friend and I have to have my sister.
So there will definitely be two bridesmaids, and in an ideal world I would like three. Will that look strange though? I hear that people are only supposed to have one bridesmaid per 50 guests, and that is all there will only be 50-60 at our wedding!
Also, will I look like a princess if I have 3 bridemaids and he has only one grooms man? His family are nasty and gossipy, and I could see them criticisng me for having so many bridesmaids.
