Right now I have 10 bridesmaids in my wedding party and they are all very special to me…but I am starting to think that it might be too big of a bridal party?? I don’t know how I would feel without these girls standing with me..
I would love to see pics of big wedding parties and hear your thoughts…thanks bees!..

I was in a wedding party of 8 and I personaly felt it was very difficult, BUT we did manage. I was the maid of honor and trying to organize all of the girls to be at the same place at the same time was almost impossible. However, different ones showed up different days to help with different projects so it ended up working out. The bride secretly told me this was too hard getting everyone together and she felt she had to watch her cost on gifts because she just wasn’t buying for 3 or 4 she had 8 girls to pay for. This also ment that rehersel dinner or cost a lot more too and for hair and makeup that morning we didn’t see everyone because appointments were spaced so far apart. Just something to consider however if it means the world to you to have all these girls then you do want makes YOU happy. It’s your day!!

@jasmine1985: how many guests do you have? If you only have 35 guests, then yeah, 10 bridesmaids is too much. I have 6 right now and about 175 guests.

A couple more things I remember… the dress we picked some girls complained about but we could never get everyone there together at the same time to pick a dress. And everyone went for fittings different days so we never got to see everyone in their dress till the day of the wedding. She also had to buy more bouquets which if your having the same amount of groomens that you have to consider their boutonneire too. I’m not saying these are things to complain about. I’m just stating the facts. Good luck!!

Why does it matter what it “looks like”??
If they are special to you, it shouldn’t matter. It isn’t about the look, it is about the meaning.
