I have four bm’s like you and my fiance only has three gm’s but I honestly don’t care. If he doesnt want to ask any one else than who am I to tell him he needs to? It’s about having special people standing with you on that day and if he doesnt feel that anything has that place then thats his call.

My FI did ask his guys after I did, but it was no biggie.

Plus, it’s no big deal if you end up being short a groomsmen. I have four BMs and FI has three GM. It’s not awful. One guy will be walking with two girls.

I am having the same issue!  My fiance and I have 7 people on our sides, but I recently asked my cousin (whom I reconnected with over the past year since getting engaged) to join my girls making it 8 girls and only 7 guys.  The wedding is only 3 months away, and my fiance feels ackward asking another guy to join the bridal party last minute.  I decided to leave it to him.  If he changes his mind and asks someone to join then that’s great.  If he doesn’t want to add anyone I will just have 2 girls walk with 1 guy.  We aren’t doing a head table for our bridal party at the reception so people won’t really be paired up into couples for much of the wedding or ceremony.  I am also considering having the girls walk down the aisle solo and have all the groomsen waiting at the front with my fiance so that again eliminates “pairing up”.  Thoughts??

Maybe try to see if he’ll commit to at least setting a date to meet his friend for dinner or a drink (with the anticipation he’ll pop the question).

My fiance waited too long to ask one of his guys and his friend ended up saying no when finally asked (he already had a wedding with his wife that same weekend).
