This or That: One Bridesmaid or Many?

Megan McCarty

This is a tough one. We see the benefits of both a big bridal party and paring it down to just your closest gal pal. Involving a large handful of your favorite friends stirs up the celebratory mood from the moment you ask them through the last dance. On the other hand, we all know how difficult it can be to get group of girls to play nice. (Yikes.) For an intimate wedding, it may be best to choose fewer girls, if any, which would save you a few expenses and tiffs.

So what's it going to be: One, two, three, four or more? How many gals will you invite to be your bridesmaids?
