What is the ideal number of participants in a wedding party?
For many couples, the choice of attendants is easy, sisters, brothers, and dearest friends.
There is no required number of attendants. The average is four to six bridesmaids and at least as many groomsmen and usher, but you can include as many or as few as you like. Some couples have a large number of attendants, but even a formal wedding with just one of two attendants on each side is acceptable.
If you have questions about choosing your wedding party, talk it over with your fiancé, your best friend, mother or sister, not necessarily in that order. I'm sure together, you will make the right decision for your wedding day entourage.
