More Isn't Always MerrierHave you ever seen the occasional bridal party photo where you can't help but count the number of girls, only to realize that there were twelve bridesmaids?! Sometimes this can be because a bride has a very large friend group, other times it's because she can't make up her mind so involves everyone and it could even be because her groom has a large group of guys. Whatever the reason, you don't have to have a large party if you don't want to, and in some cases, that can result in more complications.
Family First?This can be an easy decision when you're close with your sister and sister-in-law, but if you have areas of conflict with these family members it can be challenging. Whatever your decision, it's always best to think long and hard about the final outcome. While it can seem easy at first to not use your family in your wedding party, there could be more hurt feelings and ramifications afterwards. If you're afraid they'll cause drama in your wedding, and you want to simplify your stress - don't forget that unless you don't invite them, they'll still be AT your wedding, causing the same stress you were afraid of. At least if they're in the wedding party it can possible give them a distraction.
You Can Break the "Rules"There are many "rules" associated with your bridal party, but just remember that your wedding is exactly that - your wedding. You aren't required to follow rules, and if something makes sense to you, you can do that. Do you want two maids of honor? Go for it! Does your soon-to-be spouse have fewer friends than you? That's okay, the numbers don't have to be even! Were you really close with a cousin who just so happened to be a guy? That's okay! There are many couples opting to have bridal parties of mixed genders. Whatever you and your significant other decide works for you, be brave and do it.
Keep Assumptions At BayFinally, never make assumptions that someone will not want to be in your wedding. Whether you've picked an expensive bridesmaid gown, are having a destination wedding, or just think they won't have enough time, you should limit them if you are close. You can easily remind them that while you would love for them to be apart of the wedding if there is any reason they can't make it, it's okay. There are many times where something comes up and a bridesmaid can't make it last minute due to funds, location, or sudden circumstances. Just remember that the wedding will go on, and while it's unfortunate that they can't make it, that doesn't mean your day is ruined.
