    I have 7.  My two sisters are my maid & matron of honor.  One Bridesmaid or Best Man is FI’s little sister.  The other four are very close girlfriends.

    I think I have seen people say that you having 1 per 50 guests you plan to invite.  I had 8 gm and 8 bm and I invited 150 guests to my wedding. Ehh, maybe it was a tad too big but I couldn’t decide who to get rid of.  Although, looking back two of my bm cancelled two days before the wedding. One was sick and one got in an accident. I think, if I could do it over again, I think I could have gone with only 6 bm. Although, I think my DH would have problems choosing only 6.

    I really think it depends on the size of the wedding. 10 bridesmaids would look crazy at a wedding with 70 guests, but maybe not at a wedding with 500 guests. Personally I did not want more than five.

    I had 4. I think it depends on the size of the wedding, the venue, your family, etc. to say how many is too many. We picked 4 each and that was plenty because it would have been too crowded to have more at our venue. I think more is fine, but sometimes I shake my head when I see 20 bridesmaids or something like that. I’ve just never understood how you could have that many truly close friends. I know some girls who have had tons because they were in a sorority and didn’t want to hurt feeling so it does make sense in that way. I still think I would prefer to share my special day with those closest to me. There is no way I have even close to 10+ “Best Friends.”

    The groom’s sisters are my bridesmaids, and my best friend is standing in as “man of honor” instead of “maid”.
