    I think it would be really nice for the two half-siblings to be in the bridal party. Our MOH was 15 and youngest GM was 17, DH’s sister and my brother. It meant so much for them to be in our bridal party, and DH’s younger brothers (11) both felt really really left out until we asked them to be ringbearers.

    You could have them read one of the seven blessings and participate in the ceremony that way!

    i don’t like the idea of inviting someone beacuse you need even sides – just invite whoever you want to be in the bridal party. i went to a wedding last week where there were 6 bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen, bride was upset about it, no one noticed and her brother went down the aisle with a girl on each arm and the world’s biggest smile. it was a total non issue.

    I was going to say you should include both half siblings until the last 2 paragraphs. So I voted to have 4 each, but with the 2 friend groomsmen. Perhaps use the half-brother as an usher?

    For our wedding, we had 2 ushers… to be honest, I’m not quite sure what they did! lol…. We got married on a ski hill, so they went up to the top before all the guests arrived and started the music and set out programs. Otherwise, they were just “honored” guests, because they were close friends that would have off-set the bridal party numbers. We included them in bridal party pictures, as well.
