MrsRoberts52:  I think you’re overthinking it. I doubt I’d notice something like that unless there were more attendants on one side than guests lol

MrsRoberts52:  It’ll be fine.  It is a large party for a small wedding, but the negligible amount of weirdness is completely outweighted by the serious issue of un-asking anyone (unless you un-asked them all).  Don’t worry about it!  Most people wouldn’t even notice and the ones that do probably won’t think much of it.

I don’t think it’s going to look strange. Having people stand up with you is so much more about your relationships and what they mean to you, than whether or not it “goes” with your wedding or looks okay.

That shouldn’t look strange at all.

Seventy people is still a nice sized group of people, so eleven people other than the bride, groom, and officiant standing at the altar will most likely look just fine.

MrsRoberts52:  we had less than 60 guests and 8 attendants.  It was a little weird but I’m sure no one else thought so (Our guest list was 125…we obviously had a lot of declines)

MrsRoberts52:  You’re totally overthinking this. I am expecting between 80-90 people and FI and I are each having eight on each side…I’ve never even considered someone might think it was weird. I also don’t subscribe to the idea that the wedding party needs to be somewhat proportional to the guest count. I really don’t think it matters.

Which means only 66 of those people were in the audience, since 14 were up at the altar!
