We’ll be uneven, too.  I’m having 4, he’s having 2, and a few little kids, as well.  I think it’s more important to have the people you want involved and not add or leave out people, just to keep things even, you know?  We’re having everyone’s dates join us at a family table, instead of just a one way head table.  I think it’s nice to include the spouses/dates of the bridal party at the main table, especially since they have to deal with a lot just by being the date of someone in the wedding.  The least they should get is the honor of sitting with their date at dinner!

As far as the cermony, the BMs will walk down alone, and on the way back 2 of the BMs will each be walked by a Groomsmen, and the other two will each walk back down with the little kids (actually their children, who are the little kids in the wedding party).  If they weren’t walking back down with the little ones, I think I’d have each Groomsmen escort 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man, instead.  Lining up during the ceremony, we will be “off balance”, but I don’t even care.  🙂  I figure we’ll just be staggered for photos, which doesn’t bother me in a bit.  I’m not really a fan of super traditional posed, everyone lined up in a row type pictures anyway.

I’ll look to see if I can find any good pics of uneven bridal parties.  I probably have some in my inspiration folder.

This is something your photographer will work out.

Sometime before your wedding he will probably have you fill out an informational sheet with all the wedding party/family members names and their relation to you or their part in the wedding.

This sheet helps them know what photos need to be taken.

Good luck it will be fine and photos will look great!
