So you're engaged! Now comes the hard part - figuring out who will be a part of your bridal party.
Bridal parties can range from one maid of honor to several of your best gal pals standing by your side. Small size weddings usually have 1-2 bridesmaids, medium size weddings have 3-4 bridesmaids, and large size weddings have 5 bridesmaids or more.
To ease some stress from your mind, don't feel obligated to ask every female friend to be a part of your wedding. Ask those gals whom you would like to share the happiest moment of your life, but don't feel obligated to ask everyone - a true friend will understand if you do not ask her. If you are a bride with sisters or future sister-in-laws ranks high on your who to ask list. Keep in mind that your bridesmaids will have to agree on the date of the bridal shower, coordinate details of the wedding, and bear the expenses of being a bridesmaid.
