@CollieMom89:  first off welcome to the Bee !

The diffence in numbers on each side isnt an issue, which you seem to understand. People have different amount of people all the time… 

As far as your brothers..HAve they expressed they want to be included? You know men sometimes act as though they dont care about stuff like that. It would seem a tad awkward possibly if brother #2 is excluded, but it depends on how he will respond. If you think this will deeply hurt him and you WANT him to have a role, then by all means give him one. Has your FI told you whether or not he plans on including your brothers in the party? Or are you assuming that he won’t for whatever reason…

He can be an usher or a groomsmen and stand on your side or your FI side. Ive been to a wedding where the groomsmen were ushers as well and it worked out fine. But another alternative is to have those who wont be in the bridal party to perform a reading at the ceremony (brother #2) to give them a role and make them feel included. 

I myself am still unsure as to whether I will ask my SO (significant other) sister to be in the wedding when the time comes for reasons that I wont go into detail here as they arent relevant, but I am considering giving her the role of a reader so that she still feels like she is apart of things as the rest of our siblings (my brother and his brother) will definitely be groomsmen
