I’m having 5. As a general rule you have one bridesmaid per 50 guests.

OP, if you want 50 or no bridesmaids, it’s up to you. It’s your day! I will actually have 4 bridesmaids.

@ canadianplum, I’m paying for my bridesmaids too! Everything seems to be piling up. Eeek.

I originally didn’t want bridemaids, but now that Fiance wants groomsmen, I’m having 3. He says if I change my mind, we can go back to not having any. If we do have them, we’ll be paying for both the bridesmaids and groomsmen.

It’s totally up to you! If it were up to me though I would have ONE man of honor, or maybe my 2 sisters ( but we aren’t THAT close) but because my Fiance has SO many groomsmen I will have 9, which is the standard for their group of friends weddings.

I will be having 4 or 6 in total for the bridal party. If you want to call it that. We are just having my nephew(11), niece(10), his nephew (4) and cousin(3). Those 4 kiddies are for sure, but I would also love his niece(which will only be 1) and my godson(which will be 2) as my ring bearer and flower girl, but I am afraid they migt be too young still. Hence 4 or 6, but they aren’t really a bridal party I guess, just the most logic people that won’t cause headaches lol.

Fiance is going to have 3 groomsmen, and I have 4 bridesmaids. 2 are my “mini maids of honor”, who are my two little sisters(12 and 13 years old) My other 2 are my two best girlfriends, one that I actually went to preschool with! :]

3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen…we wanted it to be even, and 3 was the only way to do it!

6 of each, 3 jr. groomsmen, 2 ring barrers, 2 ushers, and a flower girl… a big party but we felt we couldnt leave any of the out of our special day.

I have 6 bridesmaids and Fiance has 6 groomsmen. We each have pretty large families and didn’t want to leave anyone out.

5 Bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen.  I would have done less but Fiance wanted 5 and we wanted to keep it even.

We each have 8.  I could have gone with less, but he couldn’t with his core group of friends.

We have 4 of each, which was our compromise originally.  You should do whatever makes you happy, so if that’s no bridal party, then don’t have a bridal party.
