After a lady gets the ring, one of the first things she thinks of is who to choose as her bridesmaid.

While this may seem really easy especially if you have a few friends, there are things you have to take into consideration until it's too late, they include;

  1. Money- Before you choose your bridesmaids, remember the bigger your train, the more you have to spend.

  2. The Drama- Wherever three or more women are gathered, the possibility of drama exists. Professional wedding planner Sandy Malone warns,"think twice about asking drama queen friends to be in your bridal party. Sure they might flip out and pitch a fit about being excluded at first, but it's better to deal with that drama a year out than on your actual wedding day, right?"

  3. What your groom thinks.

  4. Consider what you want- do not feel too compelled to ask family members to join your train, and just in case you feel guilty, you can give them other important roles, such as a reading during the ceremony or a special toast or presentation during the reception.

  5. The stress of having too many bridesmaids.
