Bottom line, minus the drama? I now have 5 bridesmaids, including 1 MOH. My fiance has 2 groomsmen, including 1 BM. How in the heck do I have people walk down the aisle?!?!
I’m against the MOH and BM walking with anyone but each other, because we did not choose different attire to differentiate their positions. So I’d really like them to walk in together. Otherwise I’m at a loss! Do I just have everyone else walk down unescorted?
I know a lot of people say uneven numbers don’t matter… and if we had lost ONE groomsman I wouldn’t care. But we’ve lost THREE and that seems a bit ridiculous. Help!

Can you have them walk unescorted?

Here is how we will will probably deal with this… GMs will be standing with FI from the beginning. The BMs will walk in alone, and then MOH will walk in right before the FG and myself.
In your case, the BMs could pair off and walk in 2 at a time and MOH by herself…or, do: 2 BMs together, 2 BMs with 1 GM, then MOH & Best Man?
It’ll work out. No one will notice really. Our numbers are 3 girls on my side and 4 on his, but I didn’t ask a 4th.

I did the same as @AmeliaBedelia: We chose to have our gm’s already standing up at the front of the church with my hubby and the officiant, and the bridesmaids/moh walked in unescorted with the flower girl going last right before me.

My sister had her groomsmen already standing up front with the hubby and officiant as well. Then all of us bridesmaids walked by ourselves. Worked well!

I agree with @AmeliaBedelia:. This is how most of the weddings I’ve attended have been. GM with FI at front and BM/MOH walk in alone before the bride.
