My Fi is having 9(!) groomsmen. I was fine with having an uneven number. I don’t want to stretch it to more than the women I am close with. I picked 5.
ANYWAY, I was wondering what the average is on here for number of attendents. FI was trying to tell me 10-12 is normal . . . so 20-24 attendants between the two of us. That MUST be false. Help me out!
Please explain your choices if you wish!

I voted 6-8!
We have 6 – 3 each side!
I have NEVER seen a wedding party that large but I have never been to a really large wedding – how big is your wedding?

I didn’t read it properly and voted 3-5 but it’s really 6-8. We have 4 for each of us.

I don’t know what is normal or not but the average I’ve seen is 4-6 for each side. We are having 2 each. I really don’t want the trouble of trying to corral all my bridesmaids and the attendant vexations 🙂

We each have six. I have my three sisters and three BFFs. He has his brother, my brother, his cousin, and his three BFFs. My choices were so natural that I didn’t even consider what was average. 🙂
