I have 6 bridesmaids (we have 8 groomsmen).  Two are co-workers, one is my sister, one is my fiance’s sister, one is a friend, and one is like a second mom to me (my family is all on the opposite coast).  I had a tough time with picking my bridesmaids since I’ve moved so much and most of my super close friends actually live far away and can’t make it to the wedding.

I have 3 bridesmaids, no maid of honor. They are all friends, but all like family to me.

I have five bridesmaids: My sister, his sister, one childhood friend, two friends from college. It was really hard for me to narrow it down. What I ended up doing is picturing the day in my head and imagining getting ready and going through the process and these were the five girls I pictured with me EVERY time. 🙂

I’m having 6 bridesmaids. Three are best friends from college and three are best friends from highschool.  I think its a big party – but no way could i pick between them. Not having a maid of honor. 

Fiance is having 6 groomsmen. 2 are my brothers 🙂

I have 4 bridesmaids and 1 maid of honor. My Maid/Matron of Honor and 2 of my bridesmaids are cousins who I am extremely close too. Then one is my Future Sister-In-Law and one is a really good friend from college.

I’m pretty sure I am going with 3. My bff is going to be the Maid/Matron of Honor and then my two sisters will be bridesmaids. My Fiance is planning on having 5 (hopefully he can keep it to 5). I have a group of really close friends, but I don’t want to ask them all because then I will end up with 8 attendants, which I feel is too many. But I cannot just pick a couple of them, I have no idea how I would choose. So I figure the best thing was just keep it with the 3 and have it uneven. I don’t care if its uneven really, and if my Fiance can keep his numbers to 5, then the maid of honor and best man can be paired up, and each of the bridesmaids gets two groomsmen! Lucky ladies, lol

I’m pretty sure I’m only having 3. I’ve got over a year to decide but I know I want my two best friends next to me & I’m hoping my niece. But the niece is a tad bit contingent on if she asks me to be her Bridesmaid or Best Man which may or may not happen bc she has a TON of friends. I think it’d be an awesome bonding experience for us so I hope it does work out.

We had 6 on each side. I would have had less since I don’t really have many friends. 1 Maid/Matron of Honor (friend), 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man (2 cousins, family friend, his sister & his SIL). 1Bridesmaid or Best Man (his best friend), 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man (his 2bros, my bro, his BIL, his friend).

I have 8 BMs, 2 MOHs, 5 GMs, 2 best men and 2 Ring Bearer.

My MOHs are my sister and my best friend since we were just a few weeks old. Other BMs are Future Sister-In-Law, 2 cousins and 5 girls who I have been very very close with since about 2nd grade – we’ve all stayed great friends throughout the years. 

The best men are FI’s two best friends from childhood, his GMs are his BIL, my BIL, and 3 friends he went to high school and college with. The RBs are his nephews.
