I just had my sister as Maid/Matron of Honor.  I’ve been in enough weddings in my life to know that the more attendants you have, the more unnecessary drama you have.

I had 6.

  • My BFF was my Maid/Matron of Honor. I also had my sister, 2 close friends, DH’s sister, and DH’s cousin (which is actually more like his sister, he’s closer to her than his sister, so it would have been weird to have his sister and not her – but she is also a friend of mine).

DH had 6.

  • His good friend was his Bridesmaid or Best Man, he also had my brother, and 4 of his close friends.

I am having 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 2 bridesmaids.  My Maid/Matron of Honor I have been friends with since we were in the 7th grade (we are turning 30 this September). My 2 bridesmaids are newer friends that I have made in the last 5 years.

I have 4: my sister, and my three BFFs (from elementary, HS & uni). These are the girls that have put up with me through everything, and my parents just treat my BFFs like three extra daughters!

Seconding PPs on large bridal parties & drama.  This is why I deliberately didn’t pick any of my cousins.  16 girls of age to be Bridesmaid or Best Man, JBM, or FG, and asking 1 would mean asking all to prevent WW3!

@xoxClairexox:  3 bridemaids and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor. The Maid/Matron of Honor is my best friend of 11 years. One of the bridesmaids is FH’s best friend’s girlfriend, the other is my really good friend from study abroad and the last is FH’s cousin. I live far away from all my college friends so I had to improvise 😛
