    Thank you!  I am SO flipping bored at work and need something to entertain me.

    I'm having 7 BM's (but one of them is actually our officiant too), 1 JR BM and 2 FG
    FI is having 5 GM's

    We are having 4 GMs  & 4 BMs. We aren't sure about flower girls or ring bearers yet.

    I actually just finished asking my girls yesterday - I'll have to take pics and show the cards I'm sending them all now.. they're pretty cute :)

    We had 3 BM and 3 GM.  We skipped the FG/RB.  I think that we had the perfect amount.  We had those that are closest to us and it seemed like an appropriate number compared to our guest list of 90ish people.  I always kind of side eye the bride and groom that choose 8 attendants for each side and have 100 people at the wedding.  It seems like the half the guests are sitting at the head table.

    We have 7 BM, 7 GM, 1 Jr BM, 1 FG, and 2 RB.

    I was not budging on my 7 BM, and FI really wanted even sides, so that is how we ended up with a large wedding party.  The 1 Jr BM, 1 FG, and 2 RBs are our nieces and nephews. 


    We are expecting to have between 200 and 225 people, so hopefully the large wedding party doesn't look silly.  If it does, oh well :)

    I feel the same way.  We have a crazy amount, but it had to be that way, I hurt many friends feelings by not asking as it is.  But also, we're not doing a head table, we are just doing a sweethearts table.

    2 BM, 2 GM, and 1 RB. And about 135 guests.

    There really wasn't anyone else I would have asked.  My best friend and DH's sister.  His best friend and my brother. My nephew was the RB.

    6 BM, 6 GM, 1 Jr. GM, 2 FG, 1 RB

    Just right for us.  It's a fairly large party, but we also had almost 300 guests, so it wasn't too strange, heh. :)

    5 groomsmen, 5 bridesmaids. No FGs or RBs. I wish I knew a little girl because I kind of want a flower girl :(  Oh well. All my cousins had to go and have sons.

    I had one of each: 1 MOH, 1 bridesmaid, 1 jr. bridesmaid, and 1 FG.
    Then we had 1 best man, 1 GM, 1 jr. GM, and 1 RB.

    With only 100 guests that showed...it ended up being a perfect amount!

    We are having 7 BM and 6 GM... no flower girls or ring bearers, since we are not having children at our wedding. Our bridal party is pretty big but it was really important to me to have all 7 girls be part of this with me. They're all pretty amazing :) We will end up with 225-250 guests.

    We had 8 BM (we each have three sisters and choice but to include all of them) and 4 GM.  We also had my adorable niece and nephew as FG and RB.  I didn't want a big wedding or big wedding party, but lots of sisters makes a difference.

    We are having 6 BM and 6 GM, (almost half of that is immediate family) and 2 FGs (one is FI's daughter and the other is my goddaughter) we havent decided if we're having a RB yet, all of my cousins and friends have recently had little boys, but they would all be too small I'm afraid. Most of them would only be 12-18 mos. FI's nephew will only be a year old at our wedding, but we might dress him up and have his dad(who's in the wedding party) carry him, or have his mom walk him down the aisle.
