Only one for each of us, his brother is Best Man, and his sister is my MOH.

Zero! And after reading post after post (in all my wed. communities) about how many problems come with having attendants, we couldn't be happier with our choice.

Of course, my friends will still be there to help me get ready, and I'll still get 'em something, for being my best friends.

We''re having 4 BMs, and 4 GMs, 1 FG, and 1 RB. My parents thought that was too much because they are so used to Asian weddings having at most 2 attendants per side. Also, they knew that it would be our responsibility financially to cover all of our wedding party''s expenses. We think it''s perfect for us. We are having around 450 - 500 guests.

3 BMs, 3 groomsmen, and an usher. About 100 guests.

I didn''t answer the poll because I''m not sure if that puts us at 3 or at 7.

5 Flower girls - 12, 10, 8, 4, 4 (my 2 best friends daughters, 2 cousins and my niece)

1 Best man
4 Ushers/Organisers - not sure what, FI is doing this bit.

I'm not having any older BMs or an MOH. I will do something with all my female friends like dinner or a trip in place of a hen party, and we don't have showers in the UK.

We''re having 4 of each. We were going to ask several more, but we didn''t because some of them are in tight financial situations or are moving WAY our of town, etc. I didn''t want anyone to say yes and then feel burdened by it later.

Plus now 4 feels like a perfect number (it even felt a little large when we were trying to coordinate ordering BM dresses).

0 bms and only 8 guests! I never thought of having more than 1 maybe 2, and the whole idea of picking one friend just freaked me out. In fact the whole bridesmaid idea freaked me out, which is just one of the reasons I so happily agreed to a dw with just the family.

I think that''s fine. You should ask who you want to ask and not worry about what "looks" small. We had 80 guests, and we had four maids and three groomsmen.

We are having 4 BMs and 4 GM. My BMs are my 4 best best best friends from school who I could never have chosen between, so FI is filling in the gaps for me with the same number of GM
His choices were easy too, though!

3 Bridesmaids (friend from after law school, friend from highschool, FI's sister)
1 matron of honor (best friend from college)
1 bestman, 1 groosman,
1 flower girl (his daughter) and 1 ring bearer (my son)

But now that so many have more than flower girl, I'm going to have to think about that.

we''re having 3 & 3, no fg,rb,etc.

3 is because it''s my 3 sisters,
if i had 1 sister, it would be 1/1 (fi has no brothers, but wanted us to have the same #)

approx 90-100 guests to be invited

We''re having 1 MOH, 1BM, 1 FG and 1RB -- His daughter (12) and my son (5) are going to stand through the service with us and we''re going to have either a family medallion type thing or other unity portion to our service.

We''ve slowly grown to 5. 1 MOH (my best friend) and 4 BM''s (2 are my sisters, 1 is a really good friend from HS and the other is my old HS cheerleading coach/English teacher/really good friend). We started out with only 3 on each side but it was getting too hard to look at all my friends and NOT picture them standing beside me! I think I''m one of those wacky brides that just don''t care about anything though...they all picked their own dresses and I don''t care about what they do w/their hair, shoes, nails, jewlelery, anything. And they''re all friends, so that helps too!

5 BM and 5 GM; wedding of about 125-150 (hopefully closer to 125!)

I would have liked fewer attendants (3), but I have two sisters and I couldn''t choose only one friend from the rest. Plus, FI has 2 brothers and 3 close friends, so it worked out. I feel a little bad that I didn''t ask FI''s sister to be a BM, since it seems that a lot of people do that, and now she will be the only sibling not up there, but I just didn''t want any more attendants. I don''t think she is heartbroken, however!

We had none, with only 30 invited guests it seemed silly to have anyone stand up with us, all our closest friends and family were right by/behind us either way.
