Hi Bees! Although I have been an avid reader of all of the helpful blogs on this site, this is my first post so please bear with me! Anyhow, I have been mulling this decision over in my head for months now, and have been putting off asking anyone to be in my bridal party until I know exactly what I want to do. Here is the breakdown: I have two sisters, both of whom will be my matrons of honor. Then I planned on asking friends I have from various “stages” of my life: Best friend from childhood, best friend from high school, best friend from college, best friend from after college. In addition to those friends, I plan on asking my fiance’s sister as well. My niece, who will be 15 at the time, will also be a part of the party. So in total that is 7 girls, which sounded like a perfect number to me. Then I got to thinking about other girls that I would also love to ask. Two of my closest friends from college (who I still see as often as our crazy scedules allow) are possibilities. I always pictured asking them but am afraid that having 9 girls in my bridal party scares me a bit! I could ask one and not both of them, but then I’d be afraid of hurt feelings. Has anyone else had to deal with this? And if so, what words of wisdom can you provide this newbie bride-to-be with? Thank you!!!
