That does seem like a big bridal party for a relateively small wedding. It’s a good problem to have that many close friends, though! Smile

If I were you, I would keep them all since you already asked and they already accepted. I would maybe try to make it a more casual bridal party since that would fit your venue/style, anyway – like maybe they could all wear a dress of their choice instead of matching dress (that’s what my girls are all doing – their own LBDs).

That does seem like an overwhelmingly large bridal party for that number of wedding guests, but that being said, I don’t think it’s a problem if you and your Fiance both want to honor all those people!

Keep them and don’t worry about how it looks.

might seem a little overwhelming with a huge wedding party, buts its your day and you can have it look however you want 🙂

good luck

plus i think asking bm’s to step down might create unwanted drama

I think it will be fine! Yes it will seem like a large portion of the guests are in the bridal party, but that’s okay. As long as you both feel you have who you want up there with you that is all that matters. Plus keep in mind that it only really is noticeable during the ceremony. After that, they’re just guests who are all dressed alike and have to take more photos. 😉

I am no help because I did the exact same thing! I was too excited and didn’t fully think it through. So, I’m in the same dilemma.

I’m assuming that these girls would be invited to your wedding, regardless, so what’s the difference if they’re standing up beside you rather than sitting in a chair watching? I would keep them! Plus, if you’ve already asked them I wouldn’t want to deal with the drama of asking them to step down. Good luck!

Im going to have 7 when I get married, my man and I have a large group of friends, and some of my friends, became his, and vice versa. And its a drama- free group. I dont care what anyone else thinks, I say go for it girl! They shouldnt care what it looks like if they are going to cash in on the free food and booze! lol
