Church question.

Hi, I'm getting married in my local church and I'm wondering if there is a limit to how many people can be involved in a church wedding?

Reason I ask is that I have 7 bridesmaid
3 flowers girls & 5 groomsmen.
Then there's me, my groom and his best man.

Any help would be appreciated!😊

    How big is the church?

    I have been to church weddings where there have been similar numbers of bridesmaids and flower girls. I take it that groomsmen are ushers? If so they will be busy mainly at the back of the church so won't be intrusive... if that is what you are worried about.

    If in doubt, speak to the vicar. They are really in the best place to advise.

    I suppose it mostly depends on the size of the church! My local church is a little country one, so that would be a bit crowded with your numbers. Definitely speak to the vicar, who will be able to advise.

    Definitely depends on the size of your church.

    In one of my local churches, that would look quite crowded, but in another it wouldn't be a problem at all.

    It will definitely depend on the size of the church. Discuss this at your meeting with the Rector so he/she can give you an idea. You'll probably surprised at some sizes of previous bridal parties. :D
