Too many bridesmaids for small wedding???

We’re planning a small wedding of about 50 guests max. I have a very close friend that will definitely be my maid of honor, but two others that I would really love to be a part of it as well. I worry if 3 attendants each is too much for a small wedding? Or should I care? Everything will be pretty non-traditional. It’s my second marriage. It’s my finacé’s first, but he definitely isn’t in to traditional either.

    I have a wedding of 30 guests with 3 people on each side. It whoever you want standing next to you. Whether that’s 1 or 7 😂 it’s up to you.

    I don't think that's too many. I think it's the perfect amount in the big picture of everything. Do whatever you're comfortable with though, go with your gut. You don't want to be stressing over it on your big day

    We’re also having a wedding of about 50 people and my FH and I will each have 4 people. You can have as many as you want no matter the size of your wedding! 😊

    It’s whatever you want. There are no rules. If you can’t see NOT including one, then include. It’s who you want, that supports you.

    I’m having 4 on my side (six total) with a guest list of 65 and I never gave it a second thought. Just ask who you can’t imagine getting married without and leave it at that.
