Extra AF Bride Walks Up The Aisle With No Less Than Fifteen Bridesmaids
The prospect can be a tricky one: how do you narrow down who'll accompany you down the aisle while not upsetting anyone?
To take the tricky choice out of the equation, one bride decided to chuck in the rule book and make all 15 of her friends bridesmaids. Well that's one way to do it!
Chelsie Lindsay, 28, was spoilt for choice when it came to choosing her bridesmaids, so instead of whittling it down and hurting some feelings along the way, she decided to go ahead with an extended gang of 'maids.
The Essex-based bride ordered 15 trinket boxes engraved with her besties' initials, and rounded up her girls to share the news.
"The girls were shocked and crying when I asked them all to be my bridesmaid, some said they knew it would be hard but never expected everyone to make the cut," she says.
"I have been friends with some of the girls since primary school and the rest secondary school - we do everything together.
"I wanted my big day to bring us back to the good old days when we were 15 and getting ready for a party.
"My house was chaotic on the morning of our big day but I loved it, it was just like old times."
As for the dresses, Chelsie says she couldn't choose a colour, so picked three instead - pastel orange, yellow and pink - which cost the personal assistant £600.
"I loved having my best friends and sister Amber Kemp, 24, who was my maid of honour, with me for every step of the way," says the bride.
"I briefly thought about narrowing them down, but it was impossible."
She went on: "There aren't any rules about how many bridesmaids you can have, so I made my own and I couldn't have done it without them.
"I don't regret having 15 bridesmaids as each of them helped in different ways.
"One was my hairdresser, another is super creative and helped make my decorations and another helped with the drone and editing our wedding video.
"Bianca Sartori-Sigrist, 28, who I have known since I was 11 years old - came all the way from Australia."
And with more bridesmaids comes more womanpower to help relieve some of the wedding preparation stress.
"They all organised two hen parties for me, one in London for family to attend and a girl's trip to Malta where we had such a laugh playing games they had made," Chelsie explains.
"There was never a dull moment or empty dance floor as it was filled by my bridesmaids alone!
"I was super relaxed on the day because I had so much support from the girls."
Chelsie's husband Sonny, 29, said he was "shocked" by the amount of bridesmaids she'd chosen.
"I was shocked by the number of bridesmaids, but I thought Chelsie might have had more bridesmaids as she has a lot of friends," he said.
"It was the greatest day of my life and I wish we could do it all again."
Chelsie, we like your style.
