fostyfos :  We’re only having 50 people and we have 5 Groomsmen (although one is Father of the Bride), 3 Adult BMs and 2 Flowergirls. 

We don’t consider that too big, but they will be seated during the ceremony as that’s more normal where I’m from. 

Just having Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man might be nice, but I don’t think you really need to worry

fostyfos :  I don’t see anything wrong with the number of your bridal party vs total number of guests. You can do whatever you want. If it makes you feel better, I attended a wedding before with 90 guests and 26 people in their bridal party!

It’s fine, but you can seat them if you wish. Especially if it is a longer ceremony.

It isn’t a terrible thing, and I am glad to see you aren’t freaking out by uneven sides. If the altar or podium is a small space the other bridal party could sit. 

Twenty six is ridiculous though, JMO.

You dont have too many BM! You could have each Groomsmen escort two Bridesmaid or Best Man down the Aisle and they could all sit in the first row.  No one is required to stand up with you.  Take a good look at your venue and do what makes sence.
