Too Many Bridesmaids

In Depth

It is absolutely no surprise that you had a lot to say about how many bridesmaids is too many bridesmaids.

The results of our poll were heavily skewed toward a preference for smaller bridal parties; 44 percent of you felt that more than four bridesmaids was too many, and 40 percent of you felt that more than six ‘maids by the side of the bride was excessive. Over on the other end of the poll, 2 percent of you were all, “BRING ON THE LAVENDER TAFFETA!” selecting the “There’s no such thing as too many bridesmaids” option.

But the real story here was the spectacular display of Right Bridesmaid fanfic that our lead GIF produced. A tip o’ the veil to our own Kelly Faircloth for getting the party started. These were a few of my favorite responses to Right Bridesmaid’s performance on the dock of doom:

I love the girl on the far right who’s just like NOPE BYEEEEE the minute she sees trouble with the dock
Yes! She had to have met the bride playing lacrosse or something, girl reacted fast!
I also appreciate how the third girl from the right almost knocks over the second bridesmaid from the right trying to make her escape. Every maid for herself!
“Like HELL I’m sitting through the reception with wet foundation garments”
She leaps to safety all “GOOD FUCKING LUCK.”
then there is the third girl in that pushes past the girl in front of her “screw this – you are just too slow…”
“And I alone survived to tell the tale.”

We salute you, Right Bridesmaid. Take your rightful place in the Hall of Marvins.
