    FH and I both have 5 on each – he’s got Bridesmaid or Best Man +4, I’ve got Maid/Matron of Honor +4. We’ve decided to also include both of our nieces and nephews (2 of each).

    28! and that’s just the Maid/Matron of Honor + BrM & BM+GM! not yet counting the rest of the bridal party!

    I came from a big family & small circle of friends & DH came from a small family and large circle of friends. I honestly feel our wedding had one of the largest bridal party in both our families and friends. 

    DH had 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man + 12 Groomsmen (2 Groomsmen were his brothers, 1 his cousin and he has 10 very good friends. 2 of them were his Bridesmaid or Best Man as he couldn’t decide between them, and the 8 were Groomsmen. In fact, they take photos together–every. single. year! They all made a promise to be in each others’ weddings, regardless of when and where it is, and our wedding was the first in their clique).

    I had my sister and BF as Maid/Matron of Honor, and 3 of my cousins, 1 CIL, 8 of my dearest friends as bridesmaids (these 8, flew all the way from other countries to stand in our wedding)

    3 pairs of principal witnesses. Another 3 pairs for candle, veil and cord (traditional and customary). 4 pairs Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen, 1 ring bearer, 1 coin bearer and 1 bible bearer and finally, 7 FGs!

    7 BMs. It was a mistake. They were all wonderful but it was way too much to organize. I couldn’t spend time with them or money on the gifts for them to make them feel special.

    5 groomsmen. That was fine. Uneven numbers was so not a big deal. 1 little flowergirl. She was anoying but that was to be expected.

    I would want 4 BMs max.

    Zero here too.   Our sisters stood up and signed the paperwork, but there were no attendants on his side nor mine.

    We’ve agreed to one maid of honour, one best man, two bridesmaids and two groomsmen. We’re planning on asking his nephew to be the ring bearer closer to the date.

    I feel a bit guilty because I have another friend who I was a bridesmaid but having any more attendants would be disproporniate to the size of our wedding. My girls have actually been really great and supportive so far, and may it stay that way.
