Choosing your bridal party

It’s not easy having to choose your bridal party, especially when you are already stressed out about planning the actual wedding. The last thing you want to do is upset anyone. So how many bridesmaids is too many?

In many cases, particularly where you have sisters and your partner has sisters, there ends up being no room left for your actual friends to be involved. This can be quite upsetting for your friends and for yourself so you need to tread carefully here. There’s also the question of I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings by cutting them out of the bridal party so can I have no bridesmaids?

Look it’s your wedding so it’s up to you, but it’s highly recommended that you do not dismantle your bridesmaids because you can’t decide on three or four without offending anyone. If it comes to that, plain and simple, choose your very best friend in the whole world and simply have the one.

That way no one will feel left out because they will think you only had one spot. Your sisters will understand too as there was only one spot but there is more than one of them. The last thing you want to end up with is eight bridesmaids due to your indecision. Imagine the dress makers bill! Plus is you’re only having a small wedding it will look strange when most of the guests are in the bridal party.

If you want to make the other girls feel special, give them a job to do such as hand out programs at the ceremony or coordinate your wedding lantern launch.
