Hi ConnoCat!  I don’t have any pictures yet, but I have more groomsmen than bridesmaids (7 to 4).  I think it will look cute, and I’ve seen some cool pics from photographers where they’ll have a girl stand in between 2 guys for the "formal" shots or some other need combo.  I definitely don’t think everything needs to be matchy matchy nowadays.  My wedding is in 2 weeks, so I’ll have some pics after that 🙂

I don’t know why people take issue with the "eveness" of the wedding party sometimes.  Unless you want to make your GMs and your BMs "couple up" when they walk the aisle, or act like a fake couple in posed photographs, it really doesn’t matter.  West Coast Groom and I have uneven numbers, but none of them are couples in real life, so we thought it would be more comfortable for everyone this way anyway! If you go to the Project Wedding web site, they have a huge collection of photos that might give you some inspiration.

You do not need to have even numbers in your wedding party!  There are no rules!

We have five groomsmen and four bridesmaids.  I am perfectly okay with it.  I will just have two guys walk down one girl.

Last summer I was in a wedding with 8 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen.  A friend and I just walked down with one guy.  It worked just fine, don’t worry!  It’s your wedding, anyway!

I was in a wedding last fall, 2 gals and 7 guys (not including the bride & groom)…

Here’s how it looked: http://flickr.com/gp/dsgndbyrj/JrVi2e 

As an aside, we were split somewhat evenly during the ceremony, 2 girls plus 3 guys on the brides side, 4 guys on the grooms side. There was also no ‘bridal party only’ dance (does that still happen?) and only the three brothers sat at the head table.
