We only had one each.  We had a small wedding so if we had 30 on each side that would have been more than the wedding!

I had 4 girls. I picked 4 of our fave ladies. = ) And It just seemed intimate enough for our wedding.

10.  I settled on that number because I had 5 very good friends that I wanted to be in my bridal party.  I told Fiance he could have any number he wanted, but he said he wanted 5 to.

It wouldn’t matter where I got married, I would still have the same 5 on my side.  Even if I got married in my tiny kitchen, I’d still have those 5.

I am having two and Fiance is having 1 – 2.

I picked that number because I have two sisters. I also have some friends but I felt they are not close enough to me like my sisters are. Also, the less people you have, the easier to manage the timeline.

We only have three each. I wanted to keep the party small.

We have 3 bridesmaids (my 3 best friends), 3 groomsmen (FI’s brother and 2 friends), 2 ushers (my younger cousins) and 1 ring bearer (my youngest cousin). I never anticipated having an 11 person Wedding Party (including us) but we couldn’t not include any of them.

Six on each side, plus little ones. I always knew I would ask my three sisters and three longtime BFs. I was bound to have a larger wedding party when I started with three sisters, haha. Guest list/venue size didn’t have anything to do with it. 🙂

We had four on each side. It just happened to work out that way with who we wanted to be in the wedding party. We wanted our closest friends (and Darling Husband wanted his sister) so that determined it.

I currently have two bridesmaids secured. I may have up to four depending. I’m an only child, and my Fiance has three brothers and three friends he’d like to include- but there’s no way I can come up with six, so either we’ll be uneven, or he’ll have to stick to just brothers… or.. I don’t know. No more than 8 total.
