Wedding planning is a wonderful and exciting time. It can also be an extremely stressful time financially, emotionally, and mentally.

Any thoughtful bride wouldn’t want to leave anyone out, but at the same time, choosing bridesmaids is a tough decision. Newlywed Alexa came face-to-face with this particular problem and had a unique solution.

The bride had to decide who would be her bridesmaids, but she solved that problem pretty immediately. How, you ask? She chose pretty much every single friend she had to join her in her wedding party. The total came to a whopping 20 bridesmaids!

The bride said she just couldn’t choose.

They were all her dearest friends. Alexa and the groom, Tyler, admitted it was a challenging situation for both of them, especially since the groom had only 11 groomsmen. “We had an Excel spreadsheet of everyone’s names, and we would count through, and we were like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so many people!'” Alexa said. However, the couple made it work nonetheless. “I kept telling him he needed to have more than five because I am going to have 20,” she said. “We got as close as we could.”

When it was all said and done, Alexa said everything worked out perfectly. Talk about one big, happy ending. Watch the video to hear the new bride dish on her massive wedding party.
