So when we first got engaged my FI had 5 guys and I had 4 girls. Well then he had a falling out with two of the guys, and then another moved and has gone missing since January, his family doesn’t even know what’s going on with him. So my FI has his brother and best friend, and I still have 4 girls.
Our wedding is in about a month, and we kind of figured out that the guys are going to be beside my FI, and the girls will walk up by themselves, and then on the way back the guys will have two girls on their arm. I think it will be nice, and different, but I’m worried people will think it’s weird that our party is uneven. What are your opinions?? Am I being silly stressing about this??

I dont think it will look silly. I was going to suggest having 2 girls walk with one guy in the middle and you already thought of it. Go for it! No one will think its weird.

I don’t think anyone will think it’s weird. It’ll work out nicely.

- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
Each guy will have a girl on each arm — they’ll love that and it’ll make great pictures!

I just went to a wedding where this exact thing happened and everyone got a kick out of it. 🙂 Like the groomsmen were ladies’ men or something… 😀

I think its going to look extremely adorable having two ladies on the groomsmen’s arms. Who cares if anyone thinks its is weird!! The great thing about weddings now is you can do anything and everything you like bc it is YOUR day and noone elses!! I think people will comment on how cute the pairings were and not that it was an uneven number. People come to celebrate the joy of two people in love, not to count how many are in the bridal party!! (not that your worries are silly, I would have the same thought process probably lol)

I have 5 girls and my fiance has 4 guys so we’re doing like you said, and having a guy walk out two girls. Don’t stress about it, you already have plenty of other things to stress about. It’ll be okay!

We did this in our wedding. It’s totally no big deal anymore.
In the last wedding I was in, the three “bridesmatrons” walked out together and the bridesmaids got the men =].

I think these days pretty much anything goes with bridal parties. We’re having an uneven bridal party (2 girls, 3 guys). My friend is in a wedding next summer where she is a “groomsman”; the groom is having 3 girls in his side! I think it’s nice not to be bound as much by tradition as my parents were. Some older people make think it’s strange, but I think it’ll make for cute pictures.

Ours is uneven too… 4 girls/3guys. I think the guy with 2 girls would be nice. I think we’re going to have my brother walk his 2 sisters.

i have 8 BM and he has 12 GM ( i know its huge, he had to include his cousins… not my choice). Whatever I’m over the numbers, it’ll still be tons of fun, i don’t plan on too many formal style pictures anyway.
We are having the girls walk by themselves and the guys walk behind them, no awkward couplings for anyone and everyone dance with their own date during the first dance.
Whatever you decide will look great, at the end of the day they will be all talking about the fun party and how great you looked, not how your BP walked in and out of the room.

I like the uneven look. FI has 4 guys and I have 3 girls. Better than having to find another friend. 🙂

it’s totally nothing to stress about, don’t worry! I’m having the same exact number by choice: 4 girls, 2 guys. 2 girls on each guy’s arms, it’ll be adorable!!

I am glad that so many other people are having uneven bridal parties. We are having 6 bridesmaids and and 3 groomsmen and one of them may not even show up (flaky brother).
We knew it would be lopsided from the get-go so I have had time to get used to the idea. I havn’t even thought of how we are going to introduce them, maybe just individually? Add that to my list of “to think about’s”!!
