How many is too many?

    5 or 7 for a guest list of 250 is perfectly appropriate.  I read that anywhere from 6-10 is normal for a formal larger wedding.  If the wedding is in a really large church, the article said even 12 bridesmaids is acceptable!

    I'd say if there are people you want to ask, just do it!

    I mentioned this to my friend and she said that many people starts to make your pictures look a little funny and it's distracting for the guests watching the ceremony.

    I think your friend has absolutely no clue what she's talking about.

    We have six on each side for a wedding of about 150.  You're perfectly fine.

    We have 6 each plus 2 ushers and my younger nephew who lit candles etc for our wedding of about 150. I love our pictures. Tell your friend to hush up.

    Sounds like your friend had too few.

    Seriously though, there's no set number of too many or two few. whatever the number of your closest friends, that you can't imagine being up there without, that's the right now.

    Granted... some of it could get crazy if you have a TON of close friends, but it sounds like you have things well in hand =)

    I think this is completely personal-if you have 7 close friends/family, have 7! who cares, it's who matters to you up there! :)

    Agreed!
    And for a wedding your size, I think your good to go with 7 on each side!
