Hi, I’m new! 🙂
I am feelings really torn on who to ask to be my bridesmaids. I have 4 girls that I definitely want. One of these girls is a college friend. Beyond that, I have 3 other college friends. There are two of them that I’d like to ask, but I don’t feel as close to the 3rd girl (we’re all roommates by the way)! I feel like I’d hurt her feelings if I asked 3 out of 4 of them. Plus that would put me at 6 bridesmaids. I also thought about asking just one of them and having 2 out of the 4 friends… I am just really worried about hurting feelings & I still want everyone to be excited & involved!
Do you all think 4 is an okay number of bridesmaids? I keep going back & forth.

I’m having 4 bridesmaids. Like you, there were a few others that I COULD ask. But these 4 were my absolute essential girls, and I decided it’d be most meaningful to me if just they were my bridesmaids.

I’m also having 4 but it was a really easy decision for me.

I think I will stick with the four girls. Like you said, it makes it more special to be asked! And is it okay for my other friends to still come to the Bachelorette party & things like that?

@AmandaShea8: You can invite anyone you want to the bachelorette party and showers; it’s not just for maids. 🙂 Also, have as many maids as you want – 1 or 8! I’m only having 1 attendant b/c I want the rest of my friends to attend the wedding, wear whatever they want, and have a ball without having to be involved in the backstage aspect of the event. I’ve found as I’ve gotten older, I’d much rather just be invited to a friend’s wedding rather than be in it! No matter how low-key the bride, there is always drama – and def not necessarily always coming from the bride, either. Getting more than 2 women to feel good about the way they look in identicial dresses? Always fun! Good luck asking your girls! I hope it goes wonderfully!

I’m only having 4 because while I could have asked others, I knew who I wanted by my side and didn’t feel the need to ask people “just because”. I wanted it to be my closest friends and didn’t really worry about the rest
