    So i am very lucky to have alot of close girl friends in my life. Not just friends but close, best friends. they are in 2 different friend circles. I am having my sister as my MOH and my SIL as my bridesmaid. If I could have everyone I would have 9!? If I was more ruthless I would probably have 7 .... But its a case of I can't have one person without another person as they would feel left out - i literally could not do that to them!!

    Help!? How many is too many?

    A thought ran through my head to ask them direct/ask their partners to find out if they would like to be or would rather be guests as some people prefer to not have the responsibility which i totally understand. What do people think of that?!

    Help please!!!!!!:):):)

    Why not have couple of friends doing readings, maybe another could give a ‘friends ‘ speech

    I'm in a same boat with a lot of friends from different stages in my life. I actually decided to just go for three bridesmaids rather than try to 'include' people: my sister, my partner's sister, and my closest friend as my Maid of Honour. I wanted my friends to enjoy the day rather than feel like they have roles to play - AND I don't want to buy loads of dresses. It also works well as my partner just wants three groomsmen.
    However, I am hoping to have quite a big hen to include everyone!

    I had a similar situation where I have my beat friend then a few very good close friends who i wouldn't have been able to choose between so I just had my sis as MOH and best mate as BM.

    As you have so many close friends you could ask them to say do a couple of readings jointly maybe one to sign the register as a witness.

    I was thinking that if you are torn, just have your moh and bridesmaid and like the others have said, let the others do readings or give them some kind of job similar to an usher, just a thought.
