I have 3 BMs and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor.  My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister, and I was the Maid/Matron of Honor at her wedding 4 years ago.  We’re super close, and I think each of us would be really offended if we weren’t the Maid/Matron of Honor at each other’s wedding! 

Of my 3 BMs, 1 of them is married and I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in her wedding.  1 of them is engaged and 1 of them is in a relationship.  While I would be honored to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man for either of these two ladies, I know how tough picking your bridal party can be, and I wouldn’t be offended if I didn’t end up as a Bridesmaid or Best Man for either of them.  Besides, being a Bridesmaid or Best Man is a big responsibility – and if I’m not a Bridesmaid or Best Man, I can still help out with ideas without the “official” responsibility Laughing

My Fiance has been in 9 weddings and was best man in three of them. You have to be realistic with yourself. Obviously we cannot incorporate all of these people into the wedding. Your friends will understand. Some of your married friends may not want to be involved.

I have been in lots of weddings of friends who got married right out of college.  Since their weddings, I’ve moved and they’ve stayed and I don’t talk to them very much.  So…I’m not having any of them in our smallish (to me!) wedding party of 5 bridesmaids.
