I have recently got engaged and am finding it hard with regard to my bridesmaids. I am having my sister and three or my closest friends however some of my family are not happy that I have chosen my teenage cousins . It's very difficult as I love them all but I've always intend on just having my sister as my family bridesmaid -am I being selfish?

Absolutely not. I'm not even inviting my cousins to my wedding, we just aren't that close x

I have had a hard time telling my friends I am only having 1 of them as a bridesmaid as I'm having my sister and my OH sister too. I think stick to your guns as it is your wedding and on the day everyone has a great time and will probably forget about it!

How ridiculous I'm having my cousins because I'm close to them but my sister
is marrying year after me and she's not because she's not close to them

I'm not having cousins either just my 2 sisters, 2 nieces and my daughter. Have who your closest to and who you want it doesn't always have to be family :)

You choose those who enhance your life. Friends or family. The choice is yours alone xx

Not at all it's up to you! They are teenagers, they would probably prefers to wear what they want anyway!

At weddings there's always going to be some sort of disagreements between family but you have it your way it's your big day.
