I've decided to only have my sister as my maid of honour. I have 6 very close friends who I would have as bridesmaids, however I don't want to have bridesmaids as in the morning I just want to get ready with my mum and sister. I'm quite an anxious person and I think I would find it stressful getting ready with 8 of us in total!
I would like my friends to feel special on the day though, so I was thinking of asking them to colour co-ordinate wit the wedding colour theme. My wedding is going to be pink and white. i've spoken to a few of them and they loved the idea of colouring co-ordinating. I've said that they can choose any dress they like that will work with the colours e.g. pale pink, sage green, pale blue etc. I've also said that id be happy to be pay for their dresses also or at least contribute £50.
Do you think this is ok? I've only spoken to 3 of the girls at the moment, I was also thinking about gifting them flowers for their hair for the day. I just want them to feel special and for them to feel part of the wedding. I am worried that some of the girls may feel like a 'wedding prop' and that they have been asked to dress up like a bridesmaid and that they aren't good enough to be one. That's not the case at all, I really don't want 6 bridesmaids, I couldn't choose between them and I really just want to be with my Mum/sister in the morning.
Any advice is appreciated! X
