Just because your Fiance is having groomsmen doesn’t mean you need to have bridesmaids.  I’d just go with the Maid/Matron of Honor since she is your good friend and someone you want to share your special day with.

I think Future Sister-In-Law is an excellent choice, assuming she is comfortable with the expense (be very up front about the cost of what you’re thinking of) or you can cover some of that expense for her. I wouldn’t worry about if she can attend all the extra events (shower, bach party). Those aren’t really necessary to being a bridesmaid.

The other two… ehhhh. Kind of awkward to me. When is your wedding? If it is a ways off (more than 6 – 8 months), I would work really hard on building strong relationships with those two over the next few months and then re-evaluate.

I totally understand wanting to have even numbers or not feel like you have no one on your side. It absolutely is an option for you to have less people than you Fiance does, but I know that some people really don’t like that option (I would be one of those too).

Could you and Fiance compromise? Come down to 2 or 3 on each side?

I am having only my children in the wedding party as the Maid/Matron of Honor, Flower Girl, and Ring Bearer. No other maids, he is having a Best man and his best friend is marrying us.

you could definitely just do a Maid/Matron of Honor think Kate Middleton & Pippa! I loved how it was all eyes on the two of them. Or how about little bridesmaids like she had in her wedding if you or your Fiance have any children in the family!?
