Just found out one of my two BMs is not going to be able to make it to my wedding. (sad.. but nothing I or her can do about it)
Now…. would it be weird to have only one BM and 2 GM? I know uneven is ok. But now we are talking about only ONE BM…
I also feel bad that the one BM will have to ‘handle’ me by herself…
Should I ask another friend to substitue?
Thanks for all the help!

Aw, that stinks that your BM can’t make your wedding! How soon is your wedding? If you asked a new BM to stand in would she have access to a BM dress (would she have time to order one or get one?).
If your wedding is coming up fast I would just have your BM escorted down the aisle with both GM’s on either side of her. I have seen uneven numbers in BMs and GMs many times and it always seems to work out just fine.

If you can think of someone that you’d like to have step in, why not ask them. I would just suggest you make sure they know that they’re important to you too and it’s not a "well such and such couldnt do it so now im asking you" kind of thing.
otherwise go it with one!

I’d personally love to have 2 handsome men on each arm escorting me! Let her have fun!

Thanks for the thoughts so far!
Still have 4 more months till wedding. I can get a new dress for the other person and return the old one since I don’t think the sizes will be the same. I don’t think that will be a problem.
@Miss Orchids, good advice if I am getting a new BM. Delicate situation I think.
I think in my mind, I have come to terms that it’s quite ok with just having one BM… but just want to understand if there’s any major disadvantages that I don’t see e.g. asymmetrical pictures or something…………

Our numbers are uneven, I have 4 on my side, and my FI only has two. He had four before, but it is a long story. I was worried about our pictures, but photographers know how to make these things work. We are going o have the guys waiting at the front, and the girls are going to walk down by themselves. I think it should be fine. Everyone will be staring at you the whole time, no one is going to notice if your uneven. I hope I helped 🙂
