Having been DJing for over 14 years, I’ve seen bridal parties of all different sizes. Some weddings keep it simple and have just a maid of honor and a best man. Some weddings like to get crazy and have over 20 people in their wedding party. And some just forego the whole thing and their wedding party is literally them and their parents. So there really is no right answer and there are obviously pros and cons to either end of the spectrum. The pic above is from my own wedding and as you can see we had a large bridal party of 10 groomsmen and 7 bridesmaids (answer to another question is YES it’s perfectly acceptable to not have even numbers). Having a larger size bridal party can definitely increase the fun factor. Our party bus, along with Dominic and Sarina’s from a few years back (they had 19 people) were such a blast and were a great way to get amped before the reception started. But having that many people can also create headaches with dress fittings or other scheduling conflicts. Going with the smaller bridal party will negate some of those headaches but will also leave a little bit of the “good crazy” out of the day. Obviously only you know best who you would want to be such a big part of your special day. But don’t feel obligated to include anyone or afraid to leave certain people out for fear that it may hurt their feelings or offend anyone. This day is about YOU and it should be exactly how YOU want it to be.
