Historically, a bridesmaid was used as purely a witness for the marriage, as an audience of more than 10 people was thought to warn away bad spirits. However, later on in history a large group of bridesmaids provided an opportunity for showing off the family's social status and wealth. Today, the number of bridesmaids in a wedding party is dependent on many variables, including a bride's preferences, the size of her family, and the number of attendants her partner would like to have as well. They are used today to generally assist the Bride, making sure the day runs smoothly and possibly to help in the preparation and organisation of the wedding.
