I’ve been stalking wedding bee for some time…but now I’m actually engaged and starting to plan our wedding! My first problem (hopefully my only, but probably not, haha) is choosing the wedding party! I’m having a small-ish wedding and don’t want more than 3 bridesmaids. Of course, only picking 3 will cause some of my other friends’ feelings to be hurt. So then I thought maybe just have my sister be the only bridesmaid/MOH….however my fiance has 3 really close friends and can’t pick just one!
So would 1 bridesmaid and 3 groomsmen look funny? I figure the other groomsmen could walk up to the alter with the groom, then the best man could walk with the MOH.

My fiance is having a best man and I am having no attendants. Really, just do what you want!

I had an “uneven” bridal party and it was no issue at all. The size of your wedding party will have zero impact on your marriage , so it’s best not to stress about these sort of details.

My FI has two, I have three, it isn’t a big deal. I didn’t want to make him pick someone else just so the pictures could be matchy matchy. Do whatever you like!

amstudent1: Do what you want! I had my MOH, my then FI had a Best Man and two ushers. It was great! Since I had a small wedding I figured my close female friends as well as my FSILs would prefer to attend as guests and choose their own attire.

I have seven girls and five guys, it doesn’t have to be perfect! This is not a debutant ball or anything.

I have 4 bridesmaids and FI just has his best man. The bridesmaid are going to walk down on their own or in pairs depending on what they feel more comfortable with and the best man will be at the alter with FI the whole time so he isn’t just stood on his own feeling nervous

Does not matter at all!!! It will not look funny in the slightest.

amstudent1: My best friend had an uneven wedding party. She just had me and our other best friend walk down the asile together. It actually worked because the three of us have been best friends forever and the rest of her party was just family so everyone kind of knew as we were walking and loved it!! I don’t think it would be a problem, espeically if he is only having 3 and you only having 1. Maybe make your sister go down first and then the guys.
