Shooting wide open with off camera flash family portraits

Hello all,

Just like the title says. I'll be shooting wide open for group family portraits this weekend (on location). I'll be using a VND filter so that I can set my ambient at the correct exposure I need in order to shoot at sync speed so I don't lose any power. Is it ok to shoot wide open when taking group photos? Will everyone still be in focus even with a flash? Or do I need to  close down my aperature to like f4-f8 to get everyone in focus?
