I think that will look really cute having the extra bridesmaids walk the flower girl down the isle!!
We havent even started planning yet cause I have been so stressed out with the guest list alone. I cannot decide who to cut out, it ***** but I dont want (and cant afford) a big wedding.

There are no rules.  I was in a wedding where there was both a Maid and Matron of Honor --- better to not hurt your friends' feelings by making a choice than going by old fashioned rules is my thought!

thanks ladies.. we have two flower girls and they will only be 1 1/2 at the time of the wedding so the two extra bridesmaids will walk each of them down ( do you think that will work?)   i have a small family and my soon to be dh has a larger family but he didnt invite everyone.. he only invited the family he was close too.. ( not the ones we just see on holidays.) and actually there are more friends going to be there than family.. because in all honesty my friends have been there for me way more than my family.. and i consider my friends my family : )

GROSe... my wedding is may 1st of 2010 ( we moved it.. it was suppose to be october 3rd but not enough time) so our wedding will be close.. its stressful planning a wedding.. ugh!

i think you should have as many attendants as you want, hopefully you will only get married once! ideally, men and women match, but if not, put a couple of the women on the grooms side.  i put my husband's sister on his side because he did not have as many male friends as i did female.  i had them walk down the aisle unescorted so as to avoid two women walking together, and it really worked out!

I dont think it will look dumb but I do think you should have an even # of men and women, do you have any men that you would like to stand up so that everyone is paired up with someone?
I am planning a wedding for next June and I am also trying to keep the wedding small. How did you decide you to invite and who not to? I have such a large family, I feel like I cant invite any friends if I invite all my relatives. Are you telling people they cant bring guests? I think that may be what I will have to do.
Congrats on your Wedding!!!
