    8 total=3 BM/3GM + 1 flower girl, 1 ring bearer. I guess 9 if you count my cousin who is officiating.

    Lol right?! Couldn't imagine our day without all of them by our sides though!

    My two MOHs are my two best friends - we've all 3 been inseparable (even though we all live in different towns and states now) for 20 years! One bridesmaid was my college roommate, one is a great friend I've had since middle school, and another is a dear friend I met online (I was a bridesmaid in her wedding too)! Two other bridesmaids and my junior bridesmaid are my amazing cousins. Our two flower girls are one of my MOHs two daughters!

    My fiance's Best Man is his coworker who is his best friend. The groomsmen in his party are his brother, another coworker who he lived with for a year after his divorce from his first marriage, one of my cousins, one of my MOHs' husband who is his good friend, and lastly one of my bridesmaid's boyfriends who is also his good friend. The two ring bearers are my fiance's nephews!

    1x MOH, 4x BM, 1x BM, 4x GM, 2x flower girls, 3x junior groomsmen, & 1x ring bearer. Our junior bridal party is extensive, but they are all the kids that I want to attend (godson, nephews, nieces). We are having an adult only wedding, so this allowed me to have certain kids, w/o drama.

    I like that way of thinking, WeddingBliss! A nice little loophole. Are they all well behaved children?

    Keeping it simple! I like it, Carol! Who is your maid of honor to you? And your bridesman?

    I mostly keep in touch with my bridesmaids, the parents of the flower girls and ring bearers are either family or in the wedding party so that's easy, fiance is in charge of his groomsmen

    Keeping it pretty small, 4 bridesmaids & 4 groomsmen. I decided to skip FG and RB and my brother (would have been his kids) was excited to hear that he and his wife would be getting a night off to party!

    My MOH is my very best friend, mentor, the woman I would love to grow up to be. My bridesman is actually a past boyfriend and best friend, who has helped me through some of my worst moments. He and my fiance get along, and fiance is perfectly fine with him being in the wedding.
