Both! My 16yo sister is my MOH, my 7 yo sister and FH's niece are flower girls, FH's nephew is ring bearer, and two groomsmen are FH's brothers. FH's two twin 13 yo daughters are junior bridesmaids as well. Then 4 more bridesmaids and 4 more groomsmen (all friends).
Friends. My best friend, someone I consider a sister, is my MOH and her sister is my bridesmaid. I was thinking of including my FHs two amazing cousins in my party, also. As for my FH, three of his 5 groomsmen are his brothers.
A little of both. My MOH is my best friend from college, then my bridesmaids are my cousin and another friend from college. My FH has 3 friends from the coast guard as his groomsmen an BM. Then the flower girls are my cousin's daughter and my FH's nieces; ring bearer is my cousin's son.
MOH - older sister Bridesmaids - younger sister, best friend (who is like a sister), FH’s sister (who I’m close with), FH’s cousin (who I’ve acrually been friends with for 10+ years before I even met FH) and lastly, another SIL
We have both! My bridesmaids consist of 4 friends, my 2 sister-in-laws, and 1 cousin. FH’s groomsmen consist of his dad, brother, my 2 brothers, and 3 friends. We have my 4 nephews as ring bearers, and my niece is our flower girl.
I have no siblings so my bridal party is 4 of my friends. My fiancé however has 4 siblings so one of his brothers will be the best man and the other is one of the groomsmen and his two sisters are doing ceremony readings
My MOH was my very best friend who I have known since 7th grade, and my bridesmaids were one of my best friends from high school, my best friend from childhood who I basically grew up with, and my mom's best friend's daughter who I also grew up with and is basically like a cousin to me. My husband's groomsmen were his 2 best friends from high school and his 2 best friends from college.
We wanted to involve our siblings too though (we each have 1 younger brother) so we had husband's brother walk him down the aisle along with their dad, and my brother officiated our ceremony
