QOTD 2/6

*Posted on behalf of Cathy* How many people are in your wedding party? How many are family versus friends?

Re: QOTD 2/6

  • Good morning October 12! 10/6 brides, we have exactly 8 months to go as of today! We have 3 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen, and they are all siblings. My MOH is my sister, and the other BMs are my brother's wife and FI's sister. The two best men are FI's brothers, and the other groomsmen are my brother, and my sister's husband. With that many siblings and ILs we decided not to expand to friends, however my 10 or so closest friends are going to come get ready with me in the afternoon, just as if they were BMs. I'm having the florist make some sort of flower hairclip for them, and we are going to take pictures together. Our wedding is too casual to try to pull off 12 bridesmaids!
  • Six on each. For me, one (of two) MOH is family (my sister), and one of the remaining four bridesmaids is my FI's sister. On his side, one of his best men is his brother, the rest friends.
  • 7 bridesmaids
    2 Junior bridesmaids
    5 groomsmen
    1 ringbearer

    lets see...my MOH is my sister, then my 3 cousins, FI's sister and his 2 cousins finish off the rest of the BM, the two JBM are also FI's cousins (one is also his god daughter)
    For groomsmen, the Best Man is FI's best friend for the last 24 years (practically family), his brother, my brother in law, my cousin, and then a friend since high school.
    Ring bearer is our nephew/godson=)
  • 6 on each side, one flower girl, and 2 ushers.

    On my side, my sis is my MOH and FSIL is a BM. Fi's cousin is the flower girl.

    On his side, his bro is a GM. My cousin is an usher.

    On both sides, most of our friends have been around for more than 10 years, in my case more than 20, so they're pretty much family.

  • I have my MOH who is my closest friend in Texas, then 2 BMs - one a GF and the other my stepdaughter.

    FI has his best man and 2 GMs - all friends. 

    IF we are able to pay for his brother to come over from Africa for the wedding, we're going to expand it to 3 on each side, and add his brother as a Gm and his sis as a BM.  We're hoping. 

    One ringbearer - Close family friend's son.
    Two Flower girls:  Our granddaughter and my GF's GD. - both will be 4 by that time.
  • Our total wedding party is 6 people. 3 GM for him and 3 BM for me. At least for now. Hopefully my FI brother(Best Man) doesn't get deployed before the wedding. If so, then we will have uneven sides.

    His bestman is his brother, 1 groomsman is not technically his brother but was "adopted" by his family when they were in middle school. His other groomsman is his best friend. They refer to each other as "My brother from another mother".  :)

    My MOH is actually the wife of his "brother from another mother", 1 of my bridesmaid is married to my FI best man and my 3rd BM is married to my brother.

  • Our wedding party is pretty big - 6 on each side. MOH is my younger sister, and BM is FI's twin brother.

    My 'maids are a friend I've known since I was a year old, my best friend who I lived with for four years before I moved in with FI, another friend I've known over 10 years, my sister's best friend who has become like an honorary sister to me, and FI's younger sister, who I think I'd be friends with even if FI and I weren't together.

    The GM are 5 of FI's friends, two of whom I would actually consider mutual friends because we both hang out with them pretty much every weekend.

  • Ugh. I'm slightly embarrassed to say this. We have 7 groomsmen, 6 ushers, 5 bridesmaids, a flower girl, and a ring bearer.

    I would have been fine with 3 on each side as I have 3 best friends, but my fiance is like Katherine Heigl in 27 dresses (except a dude). 90% of his friends are married and he has been the Best Man 3 times, a groomsman 10 more times, and an usher more times than he can remember.

    We tried to limit it to 5 on each side, but my fiance was getting visibly upset at the thought of choosing between a few people and I told him it was fine if he wanted to have a ridiculous amount of groomsmen/ushers. He's much happier now :)

    They are all friends, except my fiance's sister is a bridesmaid and my brother is an usher.
  • 5 BM

    We have four each of bridesmaids and groomsmen, with one BM and MOH included. All are friends. I'm an only child and FI has five siblings who are all 6-16 years older. There are lots of nieces and nephews, but we didn't want any children in the wedding party. We know which kiddos we'd ideally have, but one of his sisters would go ballistic if her sons weren't included, which they wouldn't be. It was safer to do "no kids," and just plan a picture with all 11 of them.
  • We will have 1 MOH who is my sister, 1 BM who is FI's brother.  2 brides maids who are my friends, 2 GM's my BIL and FI's friend.  My 2 nephews will be ring bearers and FI neice will be FG.

  • We have 3 on each side plus 2 flower girls and a ring bearer:

    I have 2 MOHs, both of which are my best friends. My other BM is FI's cousin.

    FI's BM is his cousin. One GM is a best friend from high school and the other GM is FI's cousin's (my BM) husband.

    Our FGs are my cousin's daughter/my Goddaughter and FI's cousin's daughter (we figured since her mom & dad would be in the wedding, we could have her be a FG, too).

    Our RB is undetermined/undecided at this time. FI will probably be asking one of his friends' sons to be our RB, but he hasn't picked which one yet, haha!
