Grandparents?  You should probably do one of the combined families for a nice big shot as well.  Maybe pics of you with your in-laws and DH with his?  Id also take ones with you alone with your parents and him alone with his.

grandparents?  siblings? godparents?  Just FI alone with his family?  Just you alone with your family?

Both families together with you two?

In all honesty, I had every possible combination of family portraits taken at my wedding and the only one that we have ever printed off is the one where my family is combined with his family and the two of us are in it too of course!

My photog gave us a list of all the possible shots, including formals, i looked at it and said, no way! We might do a group shot, and of course mom/dad ones, that’s all. Too much time wasted on formals is not for us LOL

Usually, from both the photographer and the bride’s point of view, the fewer formal shots you have the better.  So don’t feel the need to come up with this long laundry list of things that you don’t really want…just because you might feel like you “should” have more.

Just shots with your immediate family is all you really need.  Other than those, you should have plenty of great candid shots of you with everyone else.
