i say rude and it’s not your moms’ business to be telling you guys who you should have standing up for you at YOUR wedding. give them a “we’ll take that into consideration” but know that it is your decision and your word on the matter should be final.

Keep it however you wanted it originally. The numbers don’t matter. If you have 6 people each that are honored to be there and you want to be there, keep it that way. The atheistics of a wedding party don’t matter as much as the thought and reasons behind who you asked.

I think if you’ve already asked them, then yes I agree with you it would be difficult and rude to ask them to step down.  It is a lot of bridesmaids/groomsmen though!  It can work though.

I have one Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man and Fiance has one best man and one groomsman.

Yeah, it’d be rude to uninvite them since you’ve already asked unless there was a very important reason.  I don’t think that 6 is too many.

I think 6 is pretty standard, especially for the size of your wedding. Did Future Mother-In-Law and your mom say why they think it’s too much.

I agree with PP’s and think you should kindly, but firmly, tell both of them to butt out. 🙂  This is a decision between your Fiance and yourself and a personal choice/decision.

I’ll stick to my original post but I read it as if you had 12 people EACH.  That’s why I said it’s a lot 🙂  It’s not actually!

I say they’re coming to the wedding anyway, right? Why not have them standing next to you? it’s not going to cost you anymore, I mean unless you’re one of the FB’s that is buying the dresses/renting the tuxes.

We are only having 4 each, but I don’t think 6 is too many at all. I agree that it would be awkward to ask them to step down, and even if they are polite about it, they might be a little hurt. I think it is totally fine to ask the bridesmaids to pay for the dresses (whether they pick it out or you do), as long as if you pick it out you keep price in mind.
