  • oh crap! i didnt include flower girls and ring bearer etc......imma end up with like 20 ppl........smh.....its time to CUT some folks!
  • I will admit I am one of  those with too many. But I have a really large family and we are really close. No lie we get together and eat every Sunday. So it was hard to chose so I just made it simple.  I have 11 on each side and they are more than happy to participate and extremly supportive with everything. They contributed financially, helped with DIY projects, attended bridal shows, helped locate vendors, etc. So it was worth it. I know they would probably have done those things even if they werent in the wedding but they are more vested since they are.

    It is a lot but my family means a lot to me.  Every wedding in my family has been like that so we are used to it. I am in a sorority and if I didnt even put my line sisters in it because it was easier to just stick with family.  If I had to narrow it down and only pick say four our six I would rather gouge my eyes out with a dull spoon and give up my left kidney.  They have not been a headache or anything. Just very supportive.  Its alot I know...but hey...they all love me and I love them. And they were coming to the wedding anyway.so hey...that just means I can really hear alot of the song they will walk down the aisle to..lol.

  • I feel the same way. I have 9 BM and 2 MOH.. If you knew then what I know now this number will surely be down. Too many people to deal with, I am not looking forward to when its time for the guys to go get fitted for tuxes. I need to tell them NOW and maybe they will make an effort by Jan. SMH.

  • We have 9 on each side and 4 little flower princesses.. So far everyone has been supportive, we shall see how things go when it comes to ordering dresses, etc.. Which brings us to today, i sent out an email to the bms about the new dress info and no one responded. LOL.. I refuse to chase ppl. so we shall see how many we have after the dress order deadline.

    Wishful thinking. We chose the tux in April....the original date to be fitted was July 31. Then Aug 19......I am 3 weeks out and we still have the best man (who is a truck driver but his son the RB is fitted), grooms father, and my bible bearer who are not.
