A general guide for building out your wedding party is to keep it proportionate to the number of guests, however, this is simply a guide and ultimately the number is based on who you want standing with you on your day.

    FH has 5 groomsmen and at this time I have 4 bridesmaids. I’m waiting on the answer from one more but it’s tricky because she’s in the military and was just told she’ll probably be deploying right before my wedding Smiley sad

    I have 4 girls (a matron of honor, a maid of honor, and 2 bridesmaids) and FH has 4 guys (the best man and 3 groomsmen.) The matron of honor is actually married to one of the groomsmen and the maid of honor is dating one of the groomsmen. And these 2 guys and the best man are all brothers.

    It's really unfortunate that we are no longer able to have a wedding party due to the "elopement" package at our ceremony venue. All the spots are filled with immediate family.

    If we have one, it will be a maximum of 2. One person each. I know who I'd ask, but FH doesn't have anyone in mind so far. I suggested he could have a Best Mum or Best Sister. Smiley smile
