Mine won’t be too much help as i am having a very small wedding party. I will have a MOH, BM, FG, RB and an Usher. We were going to have 6 or so on each side (bride picked BMs & Groom picked GM) but when we selected our venue we scaled down a lot. It really is a matter of preference.

I think every bride has this problem. Remember it is your wedding have whoever you want to be involved.

Myself I didn’t was a large bridal party so I have my only sister as my MOH, my Fiancees sister & one of my cousins as bridesmaids.

My Fiancee had a harder time picking so he has his brother & two of his closest friends all as best men.

However big or small your bridal party will be I’m sure you will have a beautiful day.

We will be having 1 MOH and 3 bridesmaids, with 1 best man and 3 groomsmen to match.  I think it is a matter of preference; invite those who mean the most to you and don’t feel constrained by what’s traditional or preferred. Good luck!

I am having 5 bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen. He picked the guys and I picked the girls with the understanding that if either of us had friends or family of the opposite sex we would like in the wedding the other would have to include them. Luckily it worked out really well for us.

We’re having 3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, and 2 flower girls.  Oh, and one of the flower girls has a 1 year old sister who is a "honorary flower girl" so she matches the big girls.

We decided to just keep it simple.  My sister is my MOH and my fiance’s brother is his BM.  We’ll have ushers and a ringbearer but that’s it.  I haven’t found one person that feels I should have included more people…

We are having 18 people in our wedding party.  It seems like a lot to people but there was noone we could live without 🙂

We are having 1 MOH, 4 BM /1 Best Man, 4 GM a flower girl and possibly a ring bearer. The number was kind of determined by me since I have 3 sisters and I also wanted FI’s sister plus my best friend so 5 it is!

We have a fairly large wedding party: 1 MOH, 5 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, 1 flower girl, 1 ring bearer. 

Initially, I wanted to keep it to 4 or 5 bridesmaids/groomsmen, but it was just so hard to pick from my very best friends.  So, I have 6 girls, and he has 6 guys (including my brother and his sister).  I don’t regret it at all, because now I have more people to help and there is no jealousy/cattiness  because all the BFFs are involved.  They’re truly my best friends, so I can’t imagine getting married without them by my side.  🙂

I’ve been to weddings where there were like 10 bridesmaids, and it was fine!  It all just depends on who you want to be by your side… there is no magic #.  

Just don’t have 27 bridesmaids like in the movie "27 dresses" HAHA!

I’ve read that the number in your party should relate to the number of guests you’re expecting at your wedding.  In other words, you wouldn’t want 20 attendants at a wedding with 100 guests.  If you’re having a large wedding, go for the big bridal party.  We had around 175 guests and went with 3 BM and 3 GM.  It felt just right for us.

we’re having a pretty big wedding party too. I have my MOH & 7 bridesmaids & a junior bridesmaid, and my FI is having a BM & 7 groomsmen and we’re having a ring bearer, but no flowergirls… no little girls in either of our families!

I know it seems like a pretty big wedding party, but I can’t imagine our wedding without our closest friends (and siblings) standing by our sides!

3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen and 2 ring bearers.  IMO, it was just enough!

We are having about 250 guests and I am having 7 or 8 attendants. Yes, two months out, I’m still not sure. I have asked 8, but my sister (who is supposed to be my Matron of Honor) has been on the fritz since January and won’t respond to any emails or calls so I have no idea if she will be there. Crazy, I know…
