There are a lot of posts about uneven numbers of bridal parties. We have the same issue, but I only have 2 bridesmaids, and my husband has 1 groomsman. I think it’s cute when two bridesmaid accompany 1 groomsman ( I was in a wedding once where I escorted 2 groomsman, and loved it), but think it would be weird to have all 2 walk down at once.
Adding, he’s pretty shy and awkward, and having him escort both girls would be totally weird for him.
Any other ideas? Do bridal parties ever walk back down the aisle by themselves? What about having the bridesmaids husbands stand up and escort them? Maybe the groomsman could escort the officiant…who happens to be my step-mom?

Bridesmaids and groomsmen can definitely walk down the aisle by themselves. It may be a bit easier for the bridesmaids because they have bouquets to hold on to. I like the idea of having the groomsman escort your officiant. I don’t think you need to have the bridesmaids’ husbands escort them. Where would they go once they reach the altar?

What about on the way out after the ceremony? Anyone have thoughts?

I think that if they would be more comfortable … there is no reason why all of them can’t enter and leave solo.

Yeah, they can all file out in a single line. I think that would be fine.
But – have you asked him if he’d want to escort both girls? Maybe he’s too shy to suggest it, or think of it, and he might be more shy walking alone. If you like it and present it to him, you could feel him out. It might work out well!

We also have an uneven party with extra groomsmen. We’re either going to have everyone walk solo, or include the seating of the mothers as part of the processional. If you think the groomsman would feel awkward walking solo, you could have him seat your mother, then take his place beside the groom, then have the bridesmaids walk solo.

I like both of your ideas with the bridesmaids” husbands escorting them and the groomsman escorting the officiant
