My advice is to pick those who are closest to you and try to keep the bridal party as small as possible. The more girls you have = more opinions and that much more difficult to organize events, getting dresses and all. The girls that are closest are also least likely to disappoint you (depending on what your expectations of bridesmaids are).

I agree that you should pick those closest to you, and don’t worry about different stages of life. If you truly can’t decide and don’t want nine, you always have the option of making it family only- your sisters, Future Sister-In-Law, and niece, and making sure your friends are included in other parts of the wedding.

I ended up with 6 BMs and everyone said it was too many, but so far it has been wonderful and I have no regrets.  I’ve seen people with more BMs than 9 so do whatever you and your Fiance are most comfortable with 🙂 Also, I picked a color and designer and allowed my ladies to pick their own style and I am thrilled with the result, so if you do have a large party there’s an idea to keep everyone happier.

Pick the ones clostest to you and maybe have the others be hostesses or another role in your wedding.
