It’s time to choose your bridesmaids – but how many bridesmaids should you have? First, envision all your closest friends standing up at the altar next to you on your wedding day. (They look so beautiful in their matching blush bridesmaid dresses!) You slowly start to count how many besties are included, and by the time you count 14 ladies – and two bridesmen – you start to think that 16 people is a little excessive. And take a closer look: There’s your cousin who really doesn’t get along with your high school best friend. And are you just including your sister-in-law because she asked you to be one of her bridesmaids three years ago?
If these questions are making you panic, just remember – you can ask whomever you want to be a bridesmaid. There are no set rules for how many you have to have (or that your number of bridesmaids matches the number of groomsmen). Maybe you just want your two siblings, maybe you can’t imagine not having every single one of your college roomies by your side at the altar, or maybe you don’t want any at all. To find out how many bridesmaids you should have based on your personality, take this quiz below from The Knot.
