    I’m having just one! I didn’t want a big bridal party (and neither did my FI), so I chose my best friend from uni. She’s so easy going and we got the cutest dress for her! I’ll also have my sister in law (my brother’s wife) getting ready with us cause we’re all staying at the same place.

    I had 20. That’s normal in my culture and they all need to be from the grooms side which sucked 🙁

    I’m having 5 including Maid/Matron of Honor (haven’t decided which Bridesmaid or Best Man to promote to that role yet!).  My sister, and 4 friends, whom I’ve known for between 5 and 15 years, and all of whom I speak to regulalrly… we live in 5 different cities in 2 different countries which is going to make dress shopping tricky!  Can’t wait to spend my special day with them!

    4 bridesmaids – my 2 sisters, my close friend and my childhood friend.

    I’m also having a Jr. Bridesmaid (she’ll be 11, she is FH’s sister) instead of a flower girl.

    I have 10 bridesmaids and no regrets about it. We’ve all been best friends since we are children and it was the right decision. We have had no problems with planning my bachelorette party, shower or choosing dresses.

    I have 1 Maid of Honor, 1 Matron of Honor, and four maids. Yes, ideally, I would like to have had 2 or 3, but I figure myself blessed to have so many wonderful women in my life that I could not imagine my wedding party without 🙂

    @jrzvol:  I felt the same – always thought I would have less, and now I’m finding that I will have 5! FI’s sister, and his SIL (who I knew before I knew FI), and three friends
