1 Maid/Matron of Honor…that’s it! We met each other in our senior year of high school. Plus 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and he’s the brother of the groom.

I had four bridesmaids.  Maid/Matron of Honor was my sister, then my two best friends from highschool and my DH’s sister.  He had 3 groomsmen.  Two coworker’s and his sister’s boyfriend.

We had a relatively small wedding a 80 guests, so if we’d had 16 attendants there would have been nobody left to sit and watch the ceremony!

One Maid/Matron of Honor, one dude of honor.  They were my two adult children.  We only had a dozen guests at the ceremony, so putting 16 into the wedding party would have been a neat trick!

3 BMs, 3 groomsmen, 2 ushers. I wouldn’t want to manage a giant bridal party and I like the simple elegance of just a few of our closest up there with us. I also love symmetry, so it was important to me that each Bridesmaid or Best Man was matched with a Groomsmen to walk up the aisle.

BMs: best friend since middle school, best friend since after college, sister.

Groomsmen: fiance’s brother and two best high school friends

Ushers: childhood friends of fiance

I have 2 sisters who will me my “honor attendants”

Fiance has a brother who will be his Bridesmaid or Best Man, and an old friend who will be groomsman.  However, my brother and Brother-In-Law are pretty much doing all the groomsman duties for him since his BM/groomsman don’t seem very interested in it.

1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 bridesmaid (m grooms sister). And 4 groomsmen. I wanted to have more BMs to match but honestly, I have a lot of friends but none that I am super close to like my Maid/Matron of Honor. I didn’t want to ask people just to make the numbers even.

We’re having 3 on each side. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister, one bridesmaid is my FI’s sister, and the other is my best friend!! We’re having 45 guests at our wedding, so I already feel like 3 might be too many, but it’s too late to go back…
