3 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 3 Groomsmen, no ushers, and I really don’t want to deal with a Flower Girl and RB- not that I don’t love the kids who would do it, but our wedding is so small with a short ceremony, it seems overdone to me to have everything!

3 on each side, for us. No ringbearer or flowergirl (I tried to persuade my ubercute cousins but no go… wah!)

I love our party, they are all different but complimentary. Personally wouldn’t want more than that, but I also wanted to be able spread the duties around a bit so it didn’t all fall on one or two people – it’s a lot of work!

Oh no…the more I hear about huge bridal parties, the more I second guess mine.  It just sounds so ridiculous, but sometimes it is better to ask certain people than to start your marriage them angry with you.

I’m having 6 or 8 bridesmaids depending upon if my sister and FI’s sister partake. My best friends Sara, Catherine, my friend who is like a sister, one of my sorority sisters, my two younger cousins with whom I am very close.  Minus my sorority sister that’s the bridal party I always thought I would have! 

My niece and nephews will serve as flower girl and ringbearers. Most of FI’s groomsmen are officers in the Air Force which means their participation will be up in the air until the day of!

FI’s sister kind of throws a wrench into my plans, as she and I aren’t close, but I feel she will be offended if I don’t ask her.  Then I have to ask my sister who I would rather be have sitting with my family (partially to be available to hold one of her children that might be fussy).  Sometimes I just want to run down to the courthouse and get marrried!

I am having 3 bridesmaids, (FH’s sister, my roomate from college, and my friend from high school & college)  1 matron of honor (my brother’s wife) , and 1 flower girl (my niece).

FH will have 5 groomsman (all childhood friends) and his best man. (his dad)

The numbers are uneven but we don’t care.  We asked everyone that we wanted to participate.

 I am also having 2 program attendents who are dear friends of the  MOG.  She had orginally wanted them to be junior attendents, but we did not want that, so we came up with this arrangement and everyone’s happy!
