      We have ten total. We each have 2 siblings and 3 best friends, however, one of his siblings is a sister (I have two sisters) so she will be a bridesmaid and I will have 6 on my side and he will have 4 on his! I don't expect them to buy us gifts...I have been a maid of honor three times and I know how costly it is!

        We are having 2 - but they are both on my side. FI didn't want to have to choose bw his friends so he's chillin' alone.

            It's nice to hear that not everyone is having equal numbers...I really wasn't sure if this is weird or not.

            We are each just having one for now...but it could change. Especially now that it's not uncommon to have an unequal number...although if I did that I guess the dresses wouldn't match either...but as long as they are all brown...

Since they're not all standing up on an altar or anything, I"m not that concerned how it looks. I guess there is going to be some doubling up walking down the aisle.
                    I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a huge party!

                    I have 9 MOH's he has 10 BM, 2 FG's, and 2 babies of honor (my nephew and his neice)

                      We started out planning with 6 and 6 plus 2 junior bridesmaids, and a flower girl.

                      We ended up with 4 on his side, 5 on mine, no junior bms, a flower girl, and a ring bearer.

                      Don't feel like you have too many. It's a blessing that you have so many loving relationships in your life...some people don't have that. For some couples it's hard to cut out these instrumental people. It was for us so that's why almost half as many people were standing up for us as there were sitting down, lol.
