In 2017, the average number of people in a wedding party was 10. And only 66% of couples still divide their wedding party by gender!

How many people are in your wedding party? Are you over or under 10?

    Just under. We have 4 on each side, so 8 total. We did divide by gender but only because FH’s closest friends are all guys, and my friends who are guys wouldn’t have been nearly as involved or excited to be on my side as my girl friends haha. I was actually going to have my brother on my side but then we decided to have him officiate instead :p

    We have: 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen, 2 jr.bridesmaids and 2 jr.groomsmen, 2 flower girls, and I have 2 people (dad and brother) walking me down the aisle. Guess that means we are over the average for this one.

    Just bridesmaids and groomsmen, we're right on the dot. However, we also have 2 juniors on each side, a flower girl and ring bearer, so really we're at 16 total!
