I had 4 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen. I don’t really think anyone noticed, plus we included our ushers in most of the group pictures anyways – so it was going to be unbalanced either way.

@Fanciful:  We had 2 groomsmen drop out 2 weeks before the wedding. Our pictures turned out just fine 🙂

@Fanciful:  we had 5 guys 4 girls and it was fine. Your photographer will know how to pose people to make it look balanced. It’s seriously not a big deal at all!

We’re having 3 girls, 2 guys, and it will be fine. I just stood up in a wedding last year that was 8 girls, 5 guys, the pictures were great. If you photographer has any experience at all, they’ll know what to do, and the sides being different doesn’t look funny during the ceremony either!

Uneven works out fine. The only photos where it was obvious was in the ceremony photos, but no one will focus on it. For group photos, the photographer (Ethan Yang Photography) kept mixing up the arrangement.

@Fanciful:  Meh, we started out uneven.  I have 4, he has 5.  His fifth is his sister, to add to the non-traditional.  I technically have a Jr bridesmaid.  And we have 3 flower girls and 1 ring bearer.  Nothing is even and it’ll be perfect.  

Don’t stress about it.  Your photographer will handle it and your photos will be gorgeous.

You’ll be fine!  Our wedding party was uneven and I love our pictures!  We also have men & women on my side, and just men on his, so our pictures were no where near normal I guess!

As many others have said, it’s not a problem. We had uneven sides as well and we never considered it an issue – better to stick with a bridal party that you really feel is important than try to fit in extras just to make things symmetrical. 🙂

It’s not only totally fine, but appropriate. The wedding party should be based on relationships, not on having people as props for a photo opportunity.

We had 4 guys, 3 girls. Our pictures looked great. You wouldn’t even notice unless you stand there and count. 🙂

If you’re wondering, my MOH walked down with 2 groomsmen, the BM and another GM. The other two girls followed with one guy each. Those pictures looked good too, and no problems with aisle size (I also walked with both of my parents in a much poofier dress) or anything like that.
