I'm really stressing over my wedding party and need some completely objective opinions.
I have 3 sisters and have had the same best friend for 15 years - my best friend is going to be my MOH - for one thing my sisters are all younger and have never been in a wedding, and for another 2 of them live in southern Florida (I'm in NJ) and I really don't feel comfortable choosing between my sisters.
I also have 2 cousins who I grew up with, very close to and they would be extremely offended if I didn't include them.
I also have 3 friends from college who I'm extremely close to, and while they would understand if I chose not to have them in my wedding party, they are the only ones out of all of them who have been in a wedding before.
I don't really want 9 bm - my fiancé and I are paying about 50% of the costs ourselves and a huge wedding party would set us way off budget. BUT I don't really want to cut anyone on that list out. My cousins would be a possibility, but I don't think saving a few $$ is worth the headache I'd have the rest of my life over it.
Who would you cut? Or should I just suck it up and have all 9??
