Contemplating a small wedding party versus a larger one? If you're going to go all out for your wedding, you might as well do the same when choosing your bridesmaids and groomsmen, right? To help seal the deal, we've compiled a few of the many perks that come along with having a large wedding party, plus how they can help make your special day become the best day ever.

 

Nontraditional Wedding Party Ideas

 

Less Work for the Maid of Honor

As a maid (or matron) of honor, you're tasked with planning several extra festivities for the bride. With multiple bridesmaids, each of them can help take some of those responsibilities. Ask a few bridesmaids to help plan your bachelorette party while asking another couple to tackle the bridal shower. Your MOH will thank you later. There are no hurt feelings when everyone is included and able to help.

 

More Groomsmen and Bridesmaids = More Availability

If there's a lot of set-up to be done before the wedding day, any extra hands can help. Having extra groomsmen and bridesmaids can help with all those extra tasks to prepare for the rehearsal, ceremony, or reception. Allow others to help—being sane is better than being in control.

 

Beautiful Pictures

More bridesmaids means more bouquets, and more flowers means jaw-dropping photos (in our personal opinion)! You also have more room to play with the bridesmaids' dresses. With every girl in a different colored dress that matches with a theme, your pictures will have their own unique style!

 

All of Your Friends, Together

Let's be real: Having all of your friends in your wedding party means you're having fun with all of your closest people at the same time. Think about having all of your closest girlfriends in your bridal suite with you. There won't be any time for pre-wedding jitters when you're celebrating with your dearest friends. What could be better than that?
