We did one with my side, one with his side, one with all the family from both sides together and a few other shots.  I would guess this is something that depends very much on you and possibly imput from your families on what they would like.  For instance, my husbands family wanted to get all the blood family (not wives).

if its family pictures at the wedding ill be doing it with everyone.

But as for normal family pictures we usually have a big group of us and do the immediate families then one big group picture (there really isnt that many of us probably around 30)

I did because we took our family photos right before the reception. Since everyone was already there we got a whole bunch of shots of the WHOLE family. I’m really glad we did.

We have HUGE families, so we are doing immediate families more or less. There may be some more extended family pics at the reception, but we just don’t have the time for everyone beforehand.

You should probably consult with your photographer regarding the timing of the family photos.  We for instance send out a questionnaire to see what combinations people are thinking of, and then see how realistic it is with their timeline.  My best advice to you is that you have a concise list of who you want to take photos of and the different groupings.  Otherwise they are going to be disorganized and go on forever.  We’ve been to a lot of weddings where extended family members try to turn it into their own family portrait session.
