@nanilani04:  You could have one of the girls walk down with two guys. You could also have one of the groomsmen escort a guest of honor such as one of your parents or grandparents, etc.

Oh bummer!  Sorry to hear about your BM.  I think you have a few options:

1. Have the best man already standing with your FI.

2. Have one BM escorted by 2 GMs.

3. Everyone walks alone and alternate GM, BM, GM, BM, GM, BM, GM.

4. Have all the GMs stand with your FI and only have the BMs walk.

 

I’ve seen it done pretty much every way, except maybe #3, and it’s never looked bad or awkward!

The groomsmen did not walk down the aisle in the beginning of the ceremony.  They stood up at the alter with the groom.  The bridesmaids walked down the aisle alone.  Afterwards – one groomsmen walked out 2 girls – and honestly no one noticed.  No one noticed in pictures or in the entrance to the reception.  Everything will be perfect!

@nanilani04:  Oh oops, I thought you were talking about the processional.  For the recessional, no one pays attention that much.  I might have 2 GMs escort one BM or just alternate.  Do you have any ring bearers for flower girls?  If so, maybe a GM could walk with one of them.
