    I originally had 3, but now I just have a Matron of Honor due to us eloping. I think three was a good number for me. All three girls/women are amazing friends and I am happy to know that they would have stood up there with me if and when needed >.<

    I have 7 as well including my matron of honor! No number is too many… they are your friends and they are special to you! Don’t worry about what other people think, it’s your day! : )

    I have four, and couldn’t really have got away with dropping any of those.

    Thank God I don’t have more, or I’d be broke as a joke! Here it’s customary to pay for the bridal party clothes, so that’s four dresses, four suit rentals, three flower girl dresses, three pageboy suits…. We’re spending about two grand on feckin’ clothes! And of that, my dress is only 350!

    And I’ll be paying for their make up and hair on the day too! I actually had to put the foot down when Future Sister-In-Law thought I’d be covering her getting gel nails etc done the day before the wedding! Ha!

    So after all this, my bm gifts will really be quite small. A simple necklace from Etsy to wear on the day, a cheap&nice shawl, and their flip flops for the dancing.

    That’s why Irish weddings usually have small bridal parties!

    I had 6 and wouldn’t change a thing.  I had zero Bridesmaid or Best Man drama, so it worked out perfectly… I love my girls!  🙂

    Six; my three sisters and my three BFFs who are like sisters. I wouldn’t exclude any of them. They’re the ones I one hundred percent, for sure want around me on my wedding day. 🙂

    I’m having 5, which is more than I thought I would. It’s actually going to be 2 MOH’s and 3 BM’s.

    I have three – but I think the “perfect number” is so different for everyone, and if you read around the boards enough, there can be drama with one or nine, or no drama at all – depending on your ladies.

    I’m having four and I’m calling them my bridal attendants instead of bridesmaids. 1 is my SIL and the other 3 are my Future Sister-In-Law. I’m also having 2 junior bridesmaids, my nieces.

    I am having 6; Maid/Matron of Honor and 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man.  My closest friend from home (whom I have known since I was 4) is doing a part of the ceremony – She’s my Director of Love & Happiness. 🙂

    i wanted 4.  FI wanted 8 groomsmen.  Since I like symmetry we compromised on 6.

    I have 6 – 1 sister, 1 sister-in-law, 1 cousin, and 3 best friends.

    I originally wanted four, because that would’ve worked well with the steps at my church, but I had too many people, so I made it six. It had to be an even number for me.
