    I have just booked my wedding but now I am really struggling about deciding how many bridesmaids I should have I have 6 people I would like but is that too many? Also if I have 6 bridesmaids my partner is having 2 best men would he then need 4 ushers to even it out?

    Have as many bridesmaids as you like - if there are 6 people who you would really like as bridesmaids then there is no reason why you can't have them all. One thing to think about though is paying for their dresses, hair and makeup, shoes, accessories etc... it does all add up so I'd have a think about what (if anything) you'd want them to pay for themselves to ease the financial strain, and let them know ASAP so they have plenty of notice.

    The number of bridesmaids don't need to match the number of groomsmen. I have 4 adult bridesmaids, a flower girl and OH has 2 best men, with no ushers.

    Agree with Flossie, have as many as you want to have. You and OH done have to match either. I have 1MOH and 1 bridesmaid and OH did have Best man and 2 ushers. have since dropped the ushers but either way we weren't matching

    I've known people with 8 bridesmaids so 6 isn't too many, just make sure you can afford to pay for everything they need xx

    Have as many as you want! I have 4 bridesmaids and a flower girl and OH only has a best man so they don't match. As long as you can afford to pay for everything (if you are) then have 6! xx

    You have as many as you want and as many as you can afford really if you are purchasing their outfits.

    Have as many as you want (but do think about cost) & no they don't need to match unless you really want equal in both sides

    If you can afford it have as many as you like, that's if you're paying for their outfits, hair and makeup etc.

    You don't need to have matching numbers with the groomsmen.
