Never heard of this, but I am having 4 bridesmaids and we are expecting about 120 guests.

If I remember correctly, the ratio should be one attendant per 25-50 guests.  So I think 7 would be fine.  I’ve been to weddings with 7 bridesmaids and 125 guests… that was a bit more lopsided.

That sounds abut right.  My coworker is having a wedding that size with the same number of attendants. 

I’ve never heard of this, but am happy to discover that our plans fit.  🙂   Overall, the ratio is a guideline and, as such, is flexible. If you want 7, go for it!

Agreed with missm.  Didn’t mean to imply that the ratio was a set thing!
