The weddings I have been too usually have 3: the best man, and 2 others.

i had 1 best man, 2 ushers but i've been to ones with fewer groomsmen and ones with more. and some with none. but i'd say over 4 is the beginning of being considered a "big" wedding party(assuming 4 on the bride's side).

I have 5 best friends. They are all equally close to me.
i think thats fine! nothin wrong with that. I think though, that its customary that the groom gets each groomsman a gift so...

Groomsmen, I think its one for everyone of the bride's bridesmaids. All the guys I know basically just asked
how many friends he needed to come up with to match his wife wedding party.

i have seen as small as 3, and as large as 9.

I had 5, including the best man. It worked very well.
