The next thing I would stop and think about is, how big are you planning on your wedding being? Typically bridal parties are proportional in size to the size of the wedding. Yes, at the end of the day it’s up to you, but it is something to keep in mind. If you are having your wedding be around 100 people, you probably wouldn’t want 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen. Again it’s up to you, and you should be happy with whomever you selected, but you might want to choose your wedding party size based on the overall size of your wedding. .
