My bachelorette party is coming up and I originally decided I wanted only my closest friends there. I don’t love hanging out with big groups and saw this as an excuse to bond with the girls who would be my bridesmaids if I was having them. But now I am starting to feel like a party of 7 or 8 is sort of depressing/pathetic. What do you girls think? Should I add on others last minute? Or am I being totally nuts? 🙂

I hope it’s not depressing or pathetic…I only had about 7 at mine! We didn’t do the traditional, go hang out at bars thing, though. We did a winery tour. I thought 7 was a good number, and if that’s who you want to be there what difference does it make?

I actually think that smaller bach parties work better, especially if you’re going out. Anything more than 7-8 is a lot of potentially drunk girls to wrangle together. it tends to be like herding cats, from my experience.

I think a party of 8 people is already great! I’m not a big fan of large gatherings either so I know how you feel about it. If you want a more intimate gathering with your girls, it shouldnt’ matter about the number of people.
For my sister, her bms (including myself) took her to South Beach and it was great. it was just the 5 of us!

I think you’re being totally nuts! 🙂 You have a really great-sized group of your best friends, and that’s what matters! Adding people on just for the sake of making it a bigger group is silly. It is in no way pathetic to celebrate your last single "girl’s night out" with 7 or 8 of your best friends! It will be way more fun to be with the girls that truly care about you the most!

My B-Party has only four confirmed guests so far, including myself. Mostly because no one is from my area. I don’t think you can have it too small though.
