This is our first wedding argument, with 11 months to go.
Originally I said I only wanted to have a MOH and BM in the bridal party. I am 32 yrs old, and at the time I felt this would be the more mature, simple way to do things. I also figured at the time that it would save us a little $.
Now after looking at photographers, and planning all the details... ive started to feel longing toward having all my best girlfriends around me on my big day. I cant imagine not having my girls around me as I get ready in those few hours before, or not having those special photos with my best friends. I was in every single one of their weddings....and now ive changed my mind. I want a bridal party. Not because of how it looks, but because the way they will make me feel. And there would be 5 of them.
Now my Fiance is not so happy. he thinks its too expensive to have all these people. He wants to keep it simple, and generally is against having a large bridal party. I think he feels like its inconveniencing his friends ( i told him they can wear whatever suit they want/have) And he doesnt want to pay for all of them at the rehearsal dinner. Which I get.. but we're doing this together.
I'm trying to compromise... but he thinks I can do all the same, and take photos with my "VIP's" without having to complicate things with a party. I dunno. Any thoughts?
