Fiance and I have an odd number of people standing up for us. I have four girls and he has three guys. I’m not too worried about it but here is my question:
Fiance decided that all of his groomsmen were like brothers to him so he wasn’t going to have a best man. I have gone back and forth but I decided that I think I want to have a Maid/Matron of Honor to help me out. She’s been the Bridesmaid or Best Man that has been through it all with me, the most helpful, and the most loving. I’m worried it will start a little drama with the other girls, but I feel like it would be awful to have her not honored for all of the help and attention she has done for my wedding.
I’m just worried if I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and Fiance doesn’t have a best man the whole odd party will look even stranger…suggestions?

Don’t think it is strange at all. And if it causes drama amongst your girls (unless it is the Maid/Matron of Honor taunting them…very strange) then I would consider getting new BMs.

I don’t think it will look like that at all…. and it’s completely understandable that you want your Bridesmaid or Best Man that’s really doing over and above to be honored.
I think it might look a little more even infact, that you both have 3 BM/GM and you just have your honored Maid/Matron of Honor =)
If you wanna do it I say do it!

I think it’s fine! I have 3 girls and my Fiance has 4 guys, so it’s already uneven, AND I asked 2 of the girls to be my Maid/Matron of Honor because I’ve known them the longest and couldn’t pick. The only Bridesmaid or Best Man is my FI’s sister.
So I think you’re doing fine! Ask her if you want to!

I’m not picking a Maid/Matron of Honor, but Mr. Dear has a Best Man. I’m not sweating it.

I feel like usually, you can’t really distinguish who is the best man at a wedding anyway, unless he’s in a different suit or something. So I wouldn’t worry about it at all!

We have 5 men in the wedding and only 3 girls. Have the girls walk down the aisle by themselves with the men meeting them up front and introduce the Maid/Matron of Honor at the reception by herself. I’m introducing the guys together and the girls together rather than introducing it by “couples”. And if you want couples walking back up the aisle together after the ceremony just put two girls on the arm of one man.

We have 6 Groomsmen and 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man. I have a Maid/Matron of Honor, and he doesn’t have a best man. I think it’ll be just fine.
