It’s a really sweet idea, but personally, I think your FI can honour his brothers without having them walk down an aisle and you don’t need  bridesmaids at all.  

If you’re having an informal wedding, I’d ask your FI if his brothers can skip walking down the aisle and just have your daughter as a flower girl.  Your families can all sit together in the front row during the ceremony, the brothers can wear matching suits and boutonnieres and have other wedding duties (readings, ushers, witnesses, toasts, MCing duties, typical groomsmen pictures with their brother).

Bride2be2015:  I love the idea you have! Super sweet!  

You don’t need matching bridesmaids v. groomsmen! 🙂  We have 5 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen.  No worries!  Your wedding can be whatever you two envision it to be.

Bride2be2015:  have you considered not having a bridal party at all?  Perhaps have your daughter as the flower girl and have everyone else sit in the front row of the ceremony without walking down the aisle.  It would be super sweet and cute to have your daughter stand with you and your DH without everyone else…….

You can still honor family in pictures without having to have them take part in the ceremony…..

I don’t think it needs to be equal on both sides, but if youre looking for a compromise maybe the brothers can walk down the aisle and be seated in the front row. That way they have the honor of the processional with out the uneven balance at the alter.
