Me, Fiance, Best Man, Maid/Matron of Honor, and 6 BMs and Groomsmen.. yeah.  we have a lot of close friends.. We could have maybe cut down 1 on each side, but 6 on each side would have been the lowest we could have gone.

Haha.  I wanted a SMALL wedding party.  Both my Fiance & I have HUGE families.  It was WAY to hard to make decisions.  I couldn’t leave my 3 best friends, best aunt, and siblings out; as well as his nieces and nephews and brother.  We love them all and can’t wait!  This is why gifts for my Bridesmaid or Best Man are such an issue!  lol  😉

We’re having four BMs and eight GMs. Fiance has a very tight group of friends and he couldn’t leave any of them out.

We’re having none!

We didn’t want to have to decide between people, so we opted out of having a formal bridal party. Laughing

We have two maids of honor, two best men, (we both have two really close friends that we couldn’t decide from. Plus one of my maids of honor lives far away so it made it easier on her to not have to stress about not being able to help as much as she’d like) 4 groomsmen, 3 bridesmaids, two flower girls, two ring bearers and then my Fiance and I…

So it’s a large wedding party to say the least.

11 standing up next to us

4 little kiddos walking (I have two sets of cousins who are right around the same age and didn’t want to pick between them!)

and then we will have 4 ushers, a mistress and mister of the ceremony, three program helpers, etc.

We have a lot of family we were trying to include 😀

We just have a Best Man and Maid of Honor.  But also a flower girl and ring bearer but it looks like those don’t count as part of the wedding party?

None.  We had a quickie JoP wedding and, when it came to sign the marriage license, we asked my SIL and my brother to do it.  They didn’t “stand up”.    If they weren’t there, we would’ve had my mom and his dad do it.

There wasn’t an option for me – zero! We decided to forgo the wedding party entirely.  It makes life so much simpler.
