    I voted too many because of #1 money.  More people in the wedding party means more flowers, more gifts, more people at the rehersal dinner and if you’re doing additional things like paying for hair, nails, makeup etc then more of that.  Also #2 stress.  More people means more people you need to coordinate to dress, organize ordering, pick up etc., and depending on your situation opinions.  Just my thoughts

    I think you should have as many as you want! Its your day, celebrate it as you wish.  We have 20 and each of them plays such a special role in our lives.  My girls are ones I could count on at any time and I know they would be there in support and love.  I can’t imagine not having one of them.  Its gonna be a party!!

    i didnt vote, because it is your wedding and you can do whatever you want, that is what matters, and I am sure other brides may have done something at their wedding that you would not have agreed to do but again it was their wedding.


    Have fun, planning and have whomever you want!!! Congrats to you

    It seems like a ton, and as a guest I might be like “woah, why are there so many people in this wedding party?”, but the hell with that, do what you want 🙂

    I voted yes too many……in MY opinion …

    Thats because my WHOLE wedding only consists off 22….incuding myself and FI!   LOL

    An old saying springs to mind….

    ”An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure…….”

    IMO 22 is WAAAAAAAAY to many.  I feel like as a  bride and groom you guys would get lost in the sea of people and your guests may be focusing more on “OMG look how huge that bridal party is!” than focusing and looking at you and your Fiance during your ceremony.

    @mg1363:  I agree with this one.  We didn’t even see 22 BMs at Will and Kate’s wedding and there were 3000 guests.  It starts to look more than a little ridiculous when the numbers jump into the double digits.  Pair it down to the closest few and consider the others for a special job.

    It is very different then my personality so I have a hard time imagining being eqully close to 22 people.  Of 22 I would think that you would naturally be closer to some then others.  I have a large friend group and I do see them all quite regularly, but there are definitely some I see/talk to a little more, who I have a more intimate relationship with, or I just like a little better then others. 

    I would cut it way down. 1 or 2.  4 max. IMO.
