I want to have 5 bridesmaids (specifically, 2 MOH’s and 3 BM’s). My fiance is fine with having 5 groomsmen. We’re getting married in the mountains and having between 75 and 110 guests. Would 5 bridesmaids be excessive? I know it’s a bit unorthodox, but will it look ridiculous? Will the pictures look too unbalanced? Will it cause too much day of drama? Anyone have experience with small weddings and large wedding parties? Or thoughts about this in general?

I don’t think 5 is too many at all. I was recently in my bestfriend’s wedding and she had 8 bride’s maids and 3 junior bride’s maids. The pictures were all taken from a distance in order to fit everyone in, but that was really the only issue at came about! If you want 5, then go for it! It is your day and you want to look back and know that you had everyone who was special to you standing by your side! I am having 4 bride’s maids and two juniors. So obviosuly I am not opposed to big wedding parties 🙂

We have six BMs and six Groomsmen and I think it should turn out fine. Do what you want to do. 5 is definitely not unheard of these days!

I hope five isn’t too many – I’m having six!

I think 5 is perfect for your size wedding.

We are going to have about 125 guests and I am going to have 6 bridesmaids *1 moh and 5 bm* and Fiance has 5 Groomsmen *1 bm and 4 GM* plus a ring bearer. The main reason for the large party is because I wanted to include FI’s sisters, and he has 3 of them. otherwise it would have been just 3 for me. I think you should include whoever you want to be there with you on your day

We had a wedding party of 14! There weren’t any problems–it was blast! I don’t think I could’ve brought myself to cut mine down any. I’m sure you love your wedding party–and that’s the important part! 😀

I don’t think 5 is too many. I’m having 5 and I feel you on the balance thing. I’m the kind of girl that has to have everything even. Thinking ahead to my photos, I picture me in the middle with 3 girls on one side and 2 on the other, and it gave me anxiety. But, my 3 closest friends were a definite and I felt it a sincere gesture asking my future sister in law. My FH wanted one of his good friends to be a Groomsmen, so I needed one more girl and chose my cousin as a sentimental choice since I was a flower girl.in her parents’ wedding years ago. I’m just a nut when it comes to balance.

I had 5 bridesmaids and my husband had 5 groomsmen. We invited just over 100 guests and had about 70 attend, so no – I don’t think it’s too many at all.
