    Not totally sure. So far just two, possibly three. It'll be four if my friend says yes when I ask her

    Aww, that's sweet, Alexandra, including your officiant! He's a part of the wedding, so I don't see why he wouldn't be included in wedding party numbers, but I hadn't even thought about it!

    I asked each bridesmaid differently. I asked my SIL at her house while showing her my ring. My college friend I asked at a dinner on a visit to see her. My other college friend I asked over the phone since she lived out of state at the time. My husband asked his groomsmen.

    My goodness, that is a bunch of people, Justine! Smiley laugh How are the members of your wedding party related to you, if that makes sense? How do you know them?
