    I want 2, he wants 3. I think we’re going to end up with 4, hahaha… If I add #3, I kind of feel like I have to add #4 too, since I’m equally close with the two of them. So he’s going to add a fourth as well. Plus that way we get to deal with twice as many people. Yay. (<-sarcasm; sorry)

    I had 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man – I have three sisters and wanted them all as Bridesmaid or Best Man but then didn’t want to exclude my close friends so ended with five.

    I  had a very small party. My bridesmaid was only my Maid/Matron of Honor, my sister, and of course the flower girl. My hubby only had the Best Man, his brother, and the ring bearer.

    I have 6 BMs and 2 JrBMs

    -3 friends of mine, 1 friend of Fiance, 1 Sister, 1 sister in law

    The Jrs are too big to be flower girls – 1 is FI’s niece and the other is my daughter.

    The boys are also at 6 with 2 Jrs.

     – 2 friends of mine, 2 of FI’s friends, 2 of FI’s nephews and the Jrs are my son and my birthson. (placed for adoption)

    • Wedding: October 2010

    I’m having my Maid/Matron of Honor, another good friend as the other adult bridesmaid, and a flower girl (6 years old). Ours is also around 80-100 people. I thought about having my FI’s sister, but we’re not close, and her own wedding is 3 months before mine and I don’t want to add to her stress (or make her feel like she has to have me as a Bridesmaid or Best Man at hers).

    My own feeling is — have the wedding party you want! I’ve seen weddings a similar size to mine with 4 or more bridesmaids which was also just fab.

    I have 1 Maid of Honor, 2 Bridesmaids, and 1 Bridesman. My fiance has a similar population on his side. We’re not having a flower girl or ring bearer. And we’re inviting about 150 people.

    We’re just having a maid of honor, best man, and my 2 nieces and nephew as the flower girls/ring bearer. I think that these days, you can have as many or as few as you want – as long as the people you choose are really those close to you. 🙂

    Mine’s kinda scary-I have eight.  I have four best friends, and with my family, my female cousins around my age have always been really close, so if I want include one, I have to include all.  So that adds four more…and there we go.  Eight.

    I had my sister as Maid/Matron of Honor and 3 other friends as Bridesmaid or Best Man.  Personally, if I were in your situation, I’d just go with your best friend, even if it’s not even.  I probably wouldn’t add people just so that the numbers were even.  Being a Bridesmaid or Best Man is a big commitment, so you might have a harder time asking cousins or other gals you’re not that close with.

    I’m having 4…Could have gone higher but really wanted to keep the bridal party small, just personal preference…
