I am wondering how to convience my fiance that it would be okay to have two bridesmaids and one groomsman only? He does not want to have just one groomsman, but he does not have any one that he is close to. I have one in mind but he is not close with him and the other is close but he is a mess in his life and we do not know where he would be in two years. What to do?

Got a good suggestion, my wedding planner suggested it to me when I had reservations. I have 5 BM’s but my FI has 7 GM he wanted to ask. He kept bugging me to ask a couple more girls to even out the numbers. I’m only close to the 5 girls I wanted to ask, have more I COULD but just didn’t want to.
Find some pictures on line of wedding party group photos. Get a good bit of photos and every now and then mix in a few shots of wedding parties that’s got uneven numbers but don’t point it out. At the end of looking at maybe 25 photos (I had a hard time making FI sit and stare at the screen for 5 minutes), he didn’t even notice that there were several wedding parties with uneven numbers.
Fooled him big time and he stopped bugging me. We have 5 girls and 7 guys. There’s a big contest going on right now among the GM’s about who’s going to get 2 girls on their arm.

I don’t think it’s any big deal. We’re going to have an extra groomsman cause one of my best friends is a guy… I think it bothers Mr. KM a little bit cause its uneven but he’s dealing with it fine. He doesn’t see the need for the bridal party at all!

Definitely not a big deal! We may be uneven too (me with two BMs and him with one GM) and I think it’s fine! You don’t want to ask someone you’re not close to just for the sake of an even wedding party!

We’re uneven. 2 BM and 1 GM.

We’re even MORE uneven. 8 BMs and 4 GMen. Some people can’t deal with the lack of symmetry, but its more important to us to have the people who mean a lot to us up there than for the pictures to be perfectly balanced. None of the groomsmen are complaining about walking out with a lady on each arm, rather than just one!

We will probably end up uneven too..one of my bridesmaids just announced to me she is pregnant and do within 3 days of my wedding so I’m not counting on her being there!
