How many is too many?

I am looking at this stanger's wedding and I've got a question: "How many bridesmaids/groomsmen is too many?" This couple has got 13 couples on each side. Lucky 13? Really? Maybe they watched 21 Dresses with lead star of Chucky the Bride and thought "Hey, let's switch it up and go all Friday the 13th and jinx our marriage from the very beginning." I can just see myself if I was in that situation, "Great, should I get a lawyer to draw up the docs right now? Maybe we should make this a destination wedding so I don't have to give up half." But seriously, what do you do with 26 people? I don't even have 26 friends. Ok I lie, but still. They should put everyone at the head table. It would be like Knights of the Round times TWO!

I should go, "Honey, I think we should add 10 more groomsmen." Her immediate response would be, "Hell no! Love you though."

I know what you mean. Excluding us we have 5 guys/girls on each side. I thought that THAT was a little much. There's just too much coordination with that many people and it has to be a logistics nightmare if people all live in different areas and are flying in and/or taking time off of work. My fiance wanted like 7 on each side and I was like, "NO WAY, there won't be anyone in the audience if we have that many people!"

I couldn't agree more. Sometimes people overdue the amount of bridesmaids and groomsmen. I feel like you should really just select the few people who are closest to you, and it makes choosing those few people more special.
