I’m having the same dillema~ after my daughter, my FI’s two sisters, my sister, two of my bff’s, i alraedy have 6, but my group of girlfriends is pretty large and we are all very tight.  So i wanted to include them all in it… however it would make it a total of 11!! YIKES!   So I’ve toyed with the thought of having 7 in the wedding as part of the wedding party, and then 4 of them as ‘honorary’ bridesmaides.  All my bm are just wearing black dresses in whatever style they like, so they prob wont have to spend much on a dress, and then the 4 of then can walk down before the wedding party but after the flower girls. I want them to be included also, but my Fiance doesn’t have enough guys and for a wedding of 150-200, im afraid it’ll be too much.  Have you decided anything yet??

No, we are doing our ceremony and reception at a fabulous historic courthouse in Downtown Dallas, the Old Red.  I would do it at a church, but we are doing ours on a sunday (1/2 price for the wedding that day) so our church will be in use.   What I figured out after doing some research, is that there is such a thing as an honary bridesmaid, its called a House Party.  They aren’t part of the bridal party standing, b/c of whatever reason, but they are still bridesmaids, still wear the same gown, and still walk out, just ahead of the MOB, and sit at the far edge of the frong row on my side.  Since i have four i was really excited about this idea.  All my Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing solid black dresses, their own style, so i didn’t feel it would cause any extra money out on their behalf, and i’ll just have them with a different version of flowers to carry.  I love my friends, and figured it would me so much to have them included this is a great way to keep it clean.

I like that  the honorary thing….Im thinking telling the girls b/c there is so many that my family will stand next to me and the rest of the girls will sit front row, but they will walk out like the bridesmaids, but sit during the ceremony, and walk out with the guys two girls to 1 guy.
