Initially in planning this wedding i didn’t want a large wedding party. I started out with 7 bridesmaids (my 3 1st cousins, my bestfriend, my brother’s girlfriend whom i LOVE, and my fiance’s 2 sisters). When i showed the list to my mom she says “but you don’t have anyone from your father’s side of the family”. So of course you can’t ask one sister or cousin without asking the others also. Thanks to my wonderful, family-oriented mother, i now have 2 maids of honor, 1 matron of honor, 12 bridesmaids, 2 jr. bridesmaids, 1 flower girl, and 1 bride caller!!! I’m COMPLETELY freaking out!!! But they’re ALL family so i’m sure everything will work out inthe end. *fingers crossed*

ummm wow! Is there no way you can just narrow it down haha??? Like just IMMEDIATE family? Say… Fiances sisters (which in my honesty opinion is never wise lol) anways Fiances Sisters, Brothers Girlfriend and Bestfriend. I mean thats 4 people right there….. I chose my 2 sisters, my first cousin who i grew up with and my bestfriend.

Wow, wow, wow! You need one other person that you can count on to handle all of them! That’s a lot to keep in tune of what’s going on.

@pyma i know what u mean but his sisters are awesome…lol! i thought about narrowing it down but like i said everyone is family. we all grew up together and are really close. i think it’ll work out. if not, they’ll get the boot! lol
@RR i recently had my first “meeting” and things went well. i set dates for everyone to follow and gave them all a hand out. things are going well so far, but we’ll see…lol

If you’re okay with it and it makes you happy, go with it. However, what concerns me is that you say you didn’t want a large wedding party but you’re going with what everyone else seems to want…
Sit down and ask yourself what YOU want, and go with it.

Wow that’s a lot of people! And does your FH have the same amount of guys on his side?
I have one question though… what is a bride caller?

@Soon2B_MrsTauriac: why don’t you just cut all the cousins out? that is WAY too many in my opinion, no offense- its just going to be SO much work to coordinate and will get pretty expensive for you.

I think your pictures will look great and you will love that your family & closest friends are all together! You will definitely have to play around with placement (and have a knowledgeable photographer) but I think a large bridal party is fun 🙂

@Miss Smurf: lol. that is hilarious!!!
But yes, I agree that that is WAY too much. Your pics would be a little out of control. That’s just my opinion though. Future Sister-In-Law was in a wedding with 11 bridesmaids and you couldn’t even focus on the bride in the pics because there was so many people!
To each his own though
