Oh well great!  Your groomsmen can have two ladies in their arms!  I’m sure they won’t turn that down!!!!

I agree with Wendy!  My brother was in a wedding with more girls than guys and he walked down the aisle with a pretty girl on each arm…I’ve never seen his chest so puffed out and a bigger smile on his face…haha!  It was actually really cute!

Honestly, 8 bridesmaids is just too many.  You will drive yourself crazy dealing with that many people.  I suggest you cut down your list by not inviting people just to be tit-for-tat- you don’t have to invite everyone who invited you.

@ThePinkSuperhero – I respectfully disagree!  I have 8 bridesmaids and they are awesome!  I went Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping with them and we giggled and laughed the whole time – they are so fun!  Plus all the planning is dispersed between 8 girls – which means less stress on the Maid/Matron of Honor and the costs of everything are cut down!  I am very happy with my bridal party! 🙂

I think the number of bridesmaids really depends on the individual and as long as you are happy with everyone who you have selected then it really doesn’t matter how many there are. But I think it actually worked out well that you have exactly double so that you could do what the other ladies suggested and have two bridesmaids per groomsman 🙂 I have 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man and only 3 Groomsmen (as of right now) so I really wish it was more even like yours lol.

I think there is such a thing as too many bridesmaids, but it’s different for each person. I think 8 is completely fine, and sounds like it’s going to work out perfectly with two girls for each guy.

im pretty sure that our bridesmaids and groomsmen are going to be uneven numbers (right now it looks like 7 and 5)

as far as the first dance goes, i think we are going to just eliminate the whole “bridal party dancing with each other” thing – instead, after our first dance we’re just going to invite everyone to join us for another slow dance – i think that elimintates the mismatch problem and the uncomfortable dancing (most of my friends dont know his friends well)
