Ok, so I am in need of some reassurance or something! I am freaking out big time. A few months ago my fiance asked one of his best friends to be in the wedding, who lives in Georgia, and of course he said yes, well, not too long ago we got a call saying he may not make it to the wedding. Well, the problem here is, I have 3 bridesmaids and well currently my fiance only has 1 groomsman! and yes, I said one, he is having such issues trying to find one more it is driving us both crazy. But I am more worried about the guy in georgia not being able to make it. I can’t ask any of my bridesmaids to not be bridesmaids anymore, mainly because the dresses are all bought and can’t be returned! And, to make matters even more stressful my wedding is only 2 months away. Anyone have any ideas???

well I don’t see a big deal in this. Are you only stressing becuase of pictures? In reality you can have as meny attendants as you both want, they necessarily don’t have to match. I mean, it’s going to be uneven with or without you Groomsmen from Georgia so what’s the difference?

Does Fiance have any brothers? If he does end up only having one Groomsmen, it’s okay though…bridal party doesn’t have to be even.

Definitely doesn’t have to be even. Most of the photos will be of you two anyway but you could try do: an all female photo + Bridesmaid or Best Man, Maid/Matron of Honor, Bride & Groom photos. Group shouts will look fine anyway. In fact I’m sure the one groomsman you have will love being surrounded by all females 🙂

I wouldn’t worry about trying to scrounge up one more. I’m sure the pictures will look find uneven but if you’re thinking they’ll look bad….wouldn’t it be much worse to have random “Bob from the office” guy in your wedding pictures for the rest of your life? If he doesn’t have any other close friends, just go with the one groomsman!
