    For the wedding I’m Maid/Matron of Honor for, they’re planning me and 2 other girlies, and my brother and 2 other boypeople. It started out with 2 a side then Bride also asked my cousin. Its really turning into a family affair! All of my adult cousins/siblings, my da is one of the drivers, my mum is honorary MOTB and MOTG (his mum died when he was little, hers doesnt arrive until a week before) and also makeup artist, leaning post, thing-sourcer, helper and hug-giver!

    I would have just wanted 2 MOHs (one maid, one matron)- my sister and my best friend since childhood.

    But my hubby had 4 good friends from college that he couldn’t choose between.

    So I invited my cousin and my best college friend to be BMs.

    We wound up with 4 BMs and 4 GMs.

    We have small families so we decided to have a larger wedding party – 7 groomsmen, 6 bridesmaids. 

    A little twist: my sister is on the groom’s side.  She’s transgender so we asked her where she wanted to be. I honestly can’t imagine her in a dress (although she wouldn’t have to wear one!) but she chose to be a groomsman.  She’s close with my Fiance so it works out well

    For us theres still a chance of 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man 2 Groomsmen, still waiting to hear back from one of the prospective GM’s. I guess i’ll find out if i have to dance with 2GMs or 3 soon enough 🙂

    We wanted to have the people we were closest to standing up with us that day, so we have 2 bridesmaids and 1 best man. We didn’t want to ask additional people we aren’t close to for the sole purpose of having matching sides.

    Incidently, does anyone else *just* have bridesmaids and no designated maid of honor? I didn’t want to have to ‘rank’ my best girlfriends, so neither one is a maid of honor. Our mothers are  going to be the marriage license witnesses and I’ll just hand my bouquet over to the closest person when the time comes.
