    I’m afraid I have nothing to contribute. But upon seeing your AVI, I jumped and thought “whoa, when in the world did I post that?!”

    No it’s not too many, no it’s not weird.  Do what you want!

    We’re having a relatively small wedding (80 guests) but we’re having a large wedding party too! 7 (including two MOHs) for me and 7 (including one best man) for my fiancé. We just wanted everyone close to us to be able to partake in everything leading up to the wedding and have a role in our special day. Just do whatever you and your fiancé want, it’s your day!

    I’ve always been told that to look balanced, you should have one attendant per every 50 guests.  That being said, do what makes you happy.  If you want 7, have 7!

    I don’t think its weird or inappropriate or anything but I would just consider the costs to yourself and coordination of having 7 girls.  You will need to get them all a gift, will you be paying for hair or makeup or anything, just consider those things.  Also, its more difficult to wrangle 7 girls to buy their dresses or make any decisions.  I think two maids of honor is perfectly fine.

    I’m going to have 7 and my SO will have 5. There is no way I can leave out anyone of my 7. Plus I just don’t want to add 2 more guys just because. I say have your 7 who cares if it’s uneven. No one pays attention anyway.

    I think it’s fine. My friend had 3 MOHs and 6 BMs while her husband had 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 6 Groomsmen. It worked out perfectly.

    peacock0320:  This is coming from the voice of experience, and from someone who is ready to strangle half of her bridal party….. do not put people in your party that you are not close with. I made that mistake to honor my FI’s side of the family (I put in a few of his cousins that I actually had a good relationship with but now I’m borderline crazy and ready to start throwing punches. I’ve never dealt with bigger bitches. And I used to like these girls!). 

    Oh and I have 10 bridesmaids. If I could have 3, I would. 

    The more you have, the more opinions, the more body types, the more DRAMA. 

    Totally not worth it
