I recently got engaged and there has been a bit of wedding talk already. A disagreement we have had is regarding our wedding party. I would like to have 1 maid-of-honor and 3 bridesmaids – 2 sisters, 2 bffs. My fiance only wants 2 groomsmen – his 2 bffs. I am ok with having the sides uneven but he is not and he doesnt seem to want to budge. Any suggestions on what I can do to make him rethink his decision? It is important that I have both my sisters up there, I was a bridesmaid in both of their weddings, and the maid-of honor in my bff wedding. I’ve always said since I was in early highschool that this is how it was goin to be, even to my bffs. I cant bare to not have them up there with me. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Why is he so against having them uneven? Ours is uneven by one but it’s his problem, my fiance won’t pick another groomsman.

I guess I’d start by talking to him about “why.” The pictures? Having an odd-man out walking up the aisle? Once you know his concerns it might be easier to work around them.

I feel like you shouldn’t have to change your decision on this one…it’s involving people close to you, not something petty like decor or cake. However, have you considered asking one of them to just do a reading or something other than bridal party?
