Hi, still a newbie but I have a question. I just hope I put it in a right way.
So, a little while ago I made a thread about a VR. I want to keep it intimate and elegant but not flashy. So, I have been very careful about mixing not only some wedding aspects ( the cake and perhaps an ivory gown) with some other ideas (not wearing a veil but this awesome art deco hair pin I found online and no bouquet toss as I said in another post, it will be given to my great-grandmother) but I find myself debating with some issues. One being the bridesmaid situation. My SIL had a vow renewal a while back and she had a ton of bridesmaids. It was nice but personally I am not sure if I want that many girls in it at all. She not only had a lot of bridesmaids but several flower girls and jr. bridesmaids.
Personally, I only really care about my younger sister being a Maid of Honor. My issue is I have a lot of female relatives who want to be in the VR. How do I be polite in saying no? Is there a way I can have them in the wedding but as bridesmaids such as a poem reader or something? I have been looking around but getting different answers.
Thanks a lot!
