I’m having an uneven party too.

6 girls, 4 guys.

Walking into the ceremony the guys will be standing at the altar and the girls will walk in alone. Leaving the ceremony a groomsman will leave with 2 girls… one on each arm. I know others on the ‘bee are doing this too. I don’t think it will look awkward at all!

Hope that helps!

You don’t have to have even sides.  No one will think it looks weird.

To add, I only wanted 3 bridesmaids, FH wanted 5 GM;s. We are now having 6 each 🙂 With as much as EVERY ONE kept telling me uneven bridal parties are fine and no one would notice it just bothered me, I kept looking at pictures and I just really wanted them to be even. I knew FH wouldn’t go below 5 and I couldn’t ask 2 girls w/o asking another, so I asked 3 more and we are now at 6. Which is a crazy amount if you ask me, but all my girls especially the 3 new additionals are all super exctied and I get my even party now 🙂 Moral of the story, its perfectly fine but if it will bother you (as much as it did me) than make some changes.

I asked an extra girl to make it an even 4 and 4 for us. But then one of his groomsmen is getting deployed to Iraq, so now we are back to 4 and 3. Oh well, it doesn’t have to be even, no one will think it’s weird. Only even it up if it is really going to bother you.

These days its pretty common. My wedding party is probably gonna be 3 girls, 4 guys. Don’t pick extra people just to even it out. Less close friends might be flakey and end up causing drama. Personally, Id just keep my closest buds and let my SO choose who he wants.

Also, if your let your photographer know ahead of time he/she can think of group arrangements that won’t show off the uneven numbers.
