Hello, ladies. Need your feedback, please:
4 bride’s maids, 5 groom’s men: How do you do the walk down the aisle after the ceremony? My fiance’s mom is adamant of making it 5 even bm’s and 5 gm’s. She want’s to add her niece as my bm to make it even so they’re paired up walking out. I want to stick to the 4bm-5gm combo. Any ideas how we can do this? Thank you.

I’ve seen a bunch of weddings where the Best Man goes last, with one lady on each arm. It looks pretty snazzy… 🙂

You could have them walk out uncoupled. Some churches do this signifying the married couple as the only "couple" exiting the room. Of course, it is always appropriate to have the last lady be escorted by two gentlemen.
(For the entry, you could have the Best Man and Groom already waiting at the front, so that there are even pairs, if you are having Groomsmen walking in.)
You don’t have to give in–if you don’t have another person you want to stand up for you, you don’t have to do it! Stay strong!

It doesn’t have to be even. One lucky BM gets to have one guy on each arm.

I think that it’s totally fine to have odd numbers- the whole reason that you ask people to participate in your wedding is because you want them up there. And being a member of the wedding party isn’t going to be very significant to those already participating if you allow your FMIL to add a rando person- atleast that’s how i feel.
If you are comfortable with this- i think it’s just fine to have an uneven number- it could actually make for more interesting angled stance photos not having the same number of BMs/GM….
I think that you should do what you want to do – it is your and your fiances wedding- not his mom’s- you do what you want to do adn are comfortable with-

just make it uneven; I agree one lucky girl gets two guys; I have one MOH and one BM and one BM and two Groomsmen; they are all special to us; we didnt want someone there just to even it out
