For group shots e.g. family portrait shots at weddings, I use the following :-

Eye AF (people priority) with Tracking and Servo to focus on the main subject e.g. bride.

F/5.6 or higher to get everyone in focus.

1/125 minimum shutter speed.

Slow burst mode or single shot and take multiple shots to get a few frames where no-one is blinking e.g. eyes closed.

Basically this.

Aperture is always the important for group shots. I'm usually at f8, and make sure focus is on the B&G.
