I have 6 on my side and he has 7. We have 3 ushers, two flower girls and one ring bearer. Our guest list is at 224 people invited which we think about 175 will show up.

To answer your question, I don’t think that is too much for 450 guests!

6 bm and 6gm… i wanted 3bm and he couldn’t decide between the 6 guys so we included everybody…now regretting inviting those other three bm because they haven’t not been very helpful and just adding to the costs…

We are having about 100 guests, we will have my Maid/Matron of Honor with 5 bridesmaids and the Bridesmaid or Best Man with 3 groomsmen.  Yes it is uneven, I have one extra girl.  But we are not going to have a flower girl so we will have one of the bridesmaids walk down the our ring bearer.

@maybride2011: “welcome to the circus” <— LOVE IT!

we also have 7 girls and 7 guys, but to throw it off we are including almost everyone in the end. His mother, his Grandmother, my mom, a flower girl, ring bearer, and 2 ushers….. so how many is that…..21 people not counting me and my dad… holy shit. i never added it up before. lol. our guest list is 175-200 so its do-able.

With 450 people, I think you might want to add some body guards and station them strategically throughout 😉

5 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, one junior bridesmaid, one flower girl, one ring bearer.

I’m also toying with the idea of having my junior bridesmaid (my niece) carry my new nephew (who will be 9 months at the time of the wedding) down the aisle in a little tux. 🙂

4 girls and 4 guys.  I didn’t know the “rule” when I started planning and shit, I doubt we’ll have more than a hundred people at the wedding so apparently my bridal party is too big.  Oh well!
