So I’m kinda curious how many bridesmaids everyone has. I don’t really have any friends and I only have one friend I plan on asking to be my maid of honor and I was hoping to have at least 3 girls on my side but I don’t have anyone else. My mom keeps telling me to ask my sister but she’s kinda trashy and I don’t want her to be in the bridal party. Idk what to do.
You can have as many or as few as you want. If there's only one person you WANT in your bridal party, that's the only person you should ask. And your fiancé doesn't have to have the same amount on their side, uneven sides are no big deal.
We're having three on my side and two on FH's side. My two older sisters are my maid and matron of honor and FSIL is a bridesmaid. BM is FFIL and my brother-in-law (sisters husband) is a groomsman. Do what YOU want and only what YOU want!
I think 1 is totally fine. I've been to weddings with no wedding party, ones with only 1 person, 2 people, or more than that. I had 9. The more you have, the more expensive it is. I'd just have the 1! I wouldn't make any decisions until May 2020 though.
My groom has 7 on his side, and I'll be lucky if I have 4! It doesn't really matter if the lines are even, or if you dont have anyone else to ask, what really matters is who you want next to you on your big day!
I actually have 7 bridesmaids!! But that's because each one of those ladies played a special part n getting me there but go with your heart if that one person is all you need then that's fine. My mom doesnt know yet and if she did she would probably ask me why any if my sister's arent my bridesmaids too so you are not alone on that note
I have a matron of honor (my sister) and 3 bridesmaids (2 FSILs and my best friend from college). FH has a best man and groomsmen (all friends; neither of us has brothers or male cousins our age). If FH didn't have sisters, I would have just had my sister and my friend, and kept it really small. I have plenty of female friends from high school & college, but not many close enough that I'd ask to be a bridesmaid. I've been to several weddings with just a MOH and best man, and it looked great.
I have two MOHs- best friends from college and six BMs- two cousins, my aunt (only 3 years older than me), two of FHs cousins, and my best friend from high school. But if you only want one person up there with you, that's perfectly fine.
I only have one bridesmaid (not bothering with MOH stuff since I’m doing everything alone or with my FH up until the day of). Felt a lil weird only having one at first but she is my only true friend that I felt comfortable asking and felt she was the reliable sort. So far nobody else has felt need to comment on just me having the one (other than some female coworkers I’ve known for only a few months kinda giving me a tone that they want me to ask them).
