A dance teacher in the UK had all 74 of her dance academy students plus 6 family and friends for her wedding attendants…that's 80 total bridesmaids! (The average bride in America chooses 4-5 bridesmaids — so we're talking 16 times that!). Her bridesmaids ranged in age from 2 to 17 and all wore matching floor-length magenta gowns. There were so many bridesmaids that they had to close down the street in front of the church so that they had enough room to line up for the processional. The bride told the UK's The Mirror that she, “Didn't want to exclude anyone." We know choosing bridesmaids can be hard, but this super-sized bridal party is beyond us. What do you think?
