Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia - 1879

Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught was the son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Great Britain.
Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia was the daughter of Prince Friedrich Karl and Princess Marie of Prussia.
Arthur and Louise Margaret married on March 13, 1879 at St. George's Chapel Windsor.
Louise Margaret wore a heavy white satin dress. Her skirt was decorated with a bunch of myrtle leaves, the emblem in Germany of the bridal state. The bridal veil was made of point d'Alencon lace. Its design represented orange blossoms, roses, and myrtle leaves intertwined.

Louise's two surviving sisters had married a year or two before, but it's odd that she didn't have any single cousins or close friends from her side of the family as bridesmaids.

Perhaps because they were married in England, and Louise wanted to show favour to British aristocrats by using them as bridesmaids? Would it have been OK then to mix princesses as bridesmaids with peers' daughters?

Neither did Alexandra of Denmark or Helen of Waldeck, whose marriages also took place in England. Their bridesmaids were all daughters of British peers.

Queen Victoria's daughters (who all married in England) & their bridesmaids:
Victoria - daughters of British peers
Alice - her sisters Helena, Louise, Beatrice (small, relatively simple wedding because Queen Victoria was still in mourning for Prince Albert)
Helena - daughters of British peers
Louise - daughters of British peers (including the bridegroom's sister Lady Elizabeth Campbell)
Beatrice - her nieces Louise, Maud & Victoria of Wales; Marie & Alexandra of Edinburgh; Irene & Alix of Hesse; Victoria & Louise of Augustenburg
