This Bride Wanted 50 Bridesmaids at Her Beach Wedding—But She Ended up With 34

This is NOT a joke.

I am getting married in less than three months. (Oh, thank you for your congratulations! That was so sweet of you—and completely unprompted!)

Admittedly, this stage of life is very me, me, me, but, as every bride will tell you, there’s also a lot of tiptoeing around other people, too. Guest lists, seating charts, pre-wedding events—they all require accommodating your guests’ feelings and quirks. Same goes for landing on your group of bridesmaids. I know people who have had none, some who’ve had just a couple family members, and a few who almost reached double digits with their crew. I settled on five ladies—a mix of cousins and best friends.

Casme’ Carter settled on 34. Safe to assume there were zero hurt feelings there.
