@babybug0507:  If I were a guest at your wedding, I would think for a fleeting second it would be odd to have such a large bridal party but that’s it. No one is going to say anything and if they do, so what? It’s YOUR wedding. 

However, if I were in your shoes and since there would be no way to make smaller, I probably wouldn’t even have a bridal party.

@babybug0507:  

I say do whatever you want.  Sure, it might be a bit surprising for some guests that almost half of the total guests are in the bridal party, but I doubt anyone is judging you for it (and if they are, eff ’em!).  It’s your wedding, and you’re allowed to include anyone and as many people in the bridal party as makes sense to you.

I thought I was having a big bridal party for my small (50 people) wedding, and I’m only having 4 girls at my side (1 maid of honor, 3 bridesmaids), and he is having his best man and so far 2 groomsmen. He wanted to add more, but I told him that I think it would look a bit weird wtih a large bridal party and so little guests. I didn’t want our party to be mostly everyone in attendance.

Maybe don’t do the wedding party, but invite those people to do a toast during the wedding?

Its your wedding and you can do whatever you want, but it may seem odd to have a large bridal party if its a small wedding. It seems almost half your guest are all in the wedding.  Im having 50 for mine and only have a MOH, jr bridemaid and no groomsmen. But again its your wedding do what makes you happy.
