I’m stressing out because I don’t have a whole lot of close girlfriends. I only have an Maid/Matron of Honor and a bridesmaid. I really want more but I just don’t feel comfortable asking friends I work with because their my “work” friends and I don’t feel comfortable asking my fiance’s family members. What would you do?

I say its fine having just 2 but if you want more ask them they might be excited that you asked them!

It’s totally fine. I’m only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and a bridesmaid too. There’s no set rule for the number of bridesmaids you have…
I don’t have many close friends either and I don’t want just anyone standing next to me on my wedding day.

You technically don’t need anyone else outside of the bride, groom and the priest (officiant). I think a Maid of Honour and 1 bridesmaid is perfectly fine. The people in your wedding party should be the ones who show you and your fiance the most love, care and support. Anyone else who really doesn’t fit that criteria is unncessary…and an extra expense 😛

I think it’s fine just to have two! 🙂 That’s what I’m doing. I have more friends I could ask but I prefer our wedding party to be small as I feel it makes it seem more intimate.

I think it’s definitely fine to have two! I only have one Maid/Matron of Honor and two maids, and I’m totally fine with that. my BFFs and my future sister in law will be up there with me, and that’s all that I want! The more girls, the more opinions you get, the more drama comes out…yuck yuck yuck. Stick with your two!! 🙂

It may be a great way to get to know these two special women better! Asking family members may be nice too, but follow your gut!

I think thats perfectly ok. I live in Poland where the idea of a train is still fairly new..usually its just best man and maid of honour..thats what I’m doing too because I just can’t be bothered getting the girls in matching dresses e.t.c

I only had a Maid/Matron of Honor, it was my sister and I loved it. I felt like it was much better to have the person I really trust and count on rather then a bunch of people I didn’t. I say go for it!

My Fiance and I are only have 2 people on each side! It’s made things a lot easier compared to my sisters wedding who has 6 girls and i think 7 guys that’s for sure 🙂

That’s about the norm for over here I’d say, I’m having 4 and people think it’s loads (we pay for all the bridal party and their dresses, shoes etc in the UK so probs why!)I think what’s important is you have two people who you care about and are there to support you. You’ll only make life harder for yourself if you have more for the sake of it. You’ll be more comfortable and things will run far smoother if you have two girls who you are close to rather than having extra just for tha sake of it. Don’t stress it, be happy you have two lovely ladie to support you 🙂
