I wouldn’t worry about only having 3 girls, it may just be a blessing! My Maid/Matron of Honor planned a weekend of all this stuff to do with a bunch of girls and it was a nightmare for her which translated into a tense weekend for me. I asked for something low key but she went farther. We ended up having dinner with about 8 girls, then a club (which I didn’t want to do at all) with about 10, and brunch/spa the next day with 5 girls. A lot of people cancelled so it would of been more and I think its good that they weren’t there. Too many girls, especially ones who don’t know each other, can get ugly! All I wanted was to have a quite little mixer at a hotel room, have some dinner and relax. My favorite part was the brunch and spa! Do not feel like you should have more than 3 people.
And I think having only a handful of friends is more the norm than having a lot. I wish I had 3 good friends, as opposed to a larger group of girls that I’m not really close to.

i had 2 parties. the first was a weekend trip with my 2 bridesmaids. i loved it, it was the people that are closest to me. i had another local party with 7. it was fun too, but i think you just get better bonding/girl time with less people.

@clarabee- I think you summed up exactly how I feel. These weddings are going to make us all crazy LOL. I also don’t think it helped that I lost three BM’s in the last month.
@moderndaisy- Hope I’m not sitting next to the party of 25 next weekend!

I was also totally exhausted at mine and would have preferred something more low key like a spa. I’m too old to be hit on by 22 year olds in a hot sweaty bar!

@moderndaisy- Haha! Too funny, I am not a big club person either.

The list I gave my MoH had about 15 people on it. Who knows if all will end up coming. 🙂

We had 8. It was a good number because everyone got along and it was drama free!

I had my two sisters, sister-in-law, two bm and two friends (one who later was unable to make it) so 6 total and it was PERFECT…anymore and it would have been a crowd 🙂

After college my good friends that I made moved back to their home states. I’ve met a couple new good friends since, but not many at all! Thankfully, my friends from college who are flying in for the wedding will be around a few days before, so I planed to have the bachelorette party then. There will be 11 of us total. If my college friends couldn’t make it, then there would be only 5.

Oh no!! Man…now that yall have me thinking of logistics, I think mine might be too many! Me and 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor, old roommates, old college buddies, and I wanted to bring my mom…is this too many!?
That will be like 11-12 people invites (of course some might not be able to make it)…but we are going to Vegas, so maybe its ok for that?

There were 15 girls on mine. The numbers don’t matter as long as they are people who love and support you.
