@MrsSparkle:  Do what you feel is right. It is your and your partners wedding.

I don’t beleive that the bestman’s girlfriend has to walk him down the aisle. Walking down the aisle is for the bridal party which you and your partner selcted not guests. She does not have to sit at the head of the table either. Maybe sit her next to her son?

You are the bride and and brides are allowed to be alittle whiney about their wedding day. It’s your day!

Is there anyone that you very close with that you would consider as a maid of honor? That may even it out. Just a suggestion. But it is your wedding do what you feel makes you happy?

@MrsSparkle:  Normally I’m in the “you don’t need equal numbers” camp, but 7 and 2 is a bit unbalanced. Does he really need to ask everyone he knows to stand up with him? Did the two of you have this conversation before he starting asking his friends?

what If you split the boys, had some groomsmen beside you and some beside your hubby.  It would look even?   maybe?   its just a thought.

It’s up to you and how you would like them all to be match up, they dont have to walk down the isle with their boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse. No one in my wedding is walking down with their partner I also dont have an even number we are having 4 groommen and 6 bridemaids. Its up to you and what you want to do. Remember its your day

@MrsSparkle:  I think it does nt have to be even. FOr example, I chose 5 BM and FI chose 6 groomsmen… so be it. I also heard you can have a male on your side! So pick your gay friend for your side… 🙂

The only reason I will choose one “less-friend” is that this “less-friend” is still my way better friend than the girlfriend of one groomsmen that my horrible FMIL wants me to choose as BM.

@MrsSparkle:  NO to girlfriends who a bride is not close with!!!!!!! I totally understand. Just communicate with photographer to not let her be in pictures.

 

My FMIL tried to guilt trip me into including GF of my FBIL. How crazy, as I have no relationship with her and we met 3 times. She is not a family, plus bridal party is what bride chooses.

— edit

LOL I just realized I responded again to this thread. That bothers me how brides have so many issues over wedding etc while it is supposed to be such a happy time

My FI also picked up so many groomsmen, that puts pressure on me. Some groomsmen could be ushers or do a reading. You could pick a guy friend
