Wedding Diaries: Meet the Bridal Party


At first, fiance and I wanted to have our brothers and sisters be our bridesmaids and groomsmen. 

But if we did that, we'd end up with 13 groomsmen and 6 bridesmaids, which would be a little out of control. (I know, weird family situations.)

So in the end we decided to ask our best girlfriends and guy friends. I was so happy with that, because we got to share our big day with more than just our family. 

Plus, my friends are gorgeous.

The groomsmen were pretty fabulous too. Sam has WAY too much fun with these guys. Can you tell? (minus Chad, who sadly had to go to a funeral right after we got sealed).


Ryan // Mr. Husband // Mark // Thomas

Aren't they handsome?

What about you? If you are married, did you do bridesmaids and groomsmen? Did you have family or friends? Of if you're not married yet, have you dreamed of a huge bridal party or not so much?

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog from Hollie's follow friday. I'm your newest follower :)


    When I got married, I only had three bridemaids. I kind of felt inferior, because where I live most girls have like 8 or more bridesmaids. I didn't use any family in my wedding party. Having only three bridesmaids worked out perfectly, because hubby only wanted to have three groomsmen.

  7. Thankfully, my hubs and I dont have a ton of siblings so we were able to do both friends and brothers/sisters in the wedding party. I like the way you guys did it! 13 groomsmen would have been outta control. lol.

  8. I love the outfits. :) I've never really thought of my bridal party much. My family has never really had formal bridesmaids and groomsmen. It will probably just be sisters/brothers. We shall see though. :)

  9. I love this! :) Your bridesmaids were gorgeous and your groomsmen were handsome! And of course you and your husband looked fabulous! My husband and I didn't really do a bridal party. Our whole wedding was pretty laid back. Most of our family (parents and siblings) dressed in our wedding colors though. And then I took pictures with my five sisters/SILs.

  19. I love what your bridesmaids are wearing. So pretty and simple!

    We had bridesmaids and groomsmen. It was kind of a hodge-podge of people. Kyle asked his younger brother and his three best friends. I asked one of my cousins and three of my girlfriends. It's funny because even though it was awhile ago, it would probably still be the same people if I got married today. That's a comforting thought. :)
