    if you choose family, your other friends cannot get upset.

    Are you shooting for a certain number?  I would only choose the people that were closest to me, and most of these other girls, the way you describe, don’t seam to cut it for me.  I guess if I added anyonw I would add other cousin.

    Can you just keep it to the 3 you have? There’s no rule that all sisters have to be included in bridal parties (your other cousin), and no, you do not need to have FI’s cousin in yours. You don’t know her well, so she shouldn’t be standing up with you.

    Just tell people you wanted a small bridal party- 3 will be a much easier number to deal with, anyway.

    The three you have are fine.  If you feel the need to add another I say to add the cousin since you said you were close and it doesn’t seem like you are as close with the friends you listed other than the heavy drinker and you already told her it wasn’t happening.

    You have no obligaiton to include FI’s cousin that you have no relationship with.  If your Future Mother-In-Law pushes about this I would point out the lack of relationship and that she would likely feel uncomfortable and left out even if she were included because of how close you are with the other members of the bridal party.

    choose your college best friend. just because you have been busy and havent talked a lot lately doesnt mean that you arent close. i havent seen one of my BMs in 3 years and we only talk about once a month, but she is still one of my BFFs, so she’s in.

    @Happilyevaafter5:  

    Why do you have to have so many? Are you trying to match it up to his groomsmen? I would say only pick the people you are closest to and the rest can be guests. One way to involve people that are not in your bridal party is to ask them to be readers, that is what I did for two of my other friends.

    How many are you looking to have? You could ask all of them if you wanted to.
