I believe a wedding party can be uneven. Two girls one guy = player! Not something I would worry about (and very possibly will be having uneven wedding party myself)

I was just in one (BM) where it was uneven – 4 BMs, one jr BM and 3 GMs.  I don’t anyone noticed or cared.

ETA just make sure you practice post-ceremony walking arrangements in rehearsal.  The one I was in we did this:

MOH and Best man

Junior BM, GM and BM

BM, GM, and BM

For the last two, the officiant suggested we link arms with the GM but with 3 people it can be kind of awkward.  I think as long as you practice walking in-sync it’ll be fine.

@Firemansgirl:  I don’t think it will look stupid at all! There’s a lot of wedding parties that aren’t even. I think it’s better to have different numbers on each side rather than asking people that just for the sake of having the same number of people on each side.

That being said, if it’s really going to bother you (which it shouldn’t at all!), maybe rather than having the entire bridal party (bridesmaids and groomsmen) stand up at the altar with you and your groom, you could just have the maid of honor and the best man stand up during the ceremony and have the rest take a seat after walking down the aisle. Though I wouldn’t know when the best time to have them sit down would be…

I really don’t think you should stress too much about it though!

I recently realized that I don’t think anyone pays attention to the numbers.  My husband had 6 BFFs, I had a maid of honor, one bridesmaid, two bridesmen & two junior bridesmaids.  Somehow we ended up with the same numbers but it didn’t look similar in any way. And they definitely did not walk together. I wasn’t going to make the two guys walk together (although I would have enjoyed that moment!!)  And I thought it would look pretty creepy for my husbands grown up friends walking my 12 & 14 year old nieces out.  I think off numbers only look weird if one person had something like 8 people in the same outfit on one side and the other person had two.  Otherwise, I don’t really think anyone even notices.

We are having 7 bridesmaids and 6 groomsman. I think uneven is just fine as well. Order of who and how they are walking is just a “detail” – dont stress too much!

Totally not an issue. We had more girls than guys so we doubled up 2 girls with one guy and it still looked beautiful.

Not a problem at all. The last wedding I was in, she had 3 girls and 2 guys. I left with one of the guys, and the other guy walked out with the other 2 girls. It looked great, and we all had fun.

Our wedding party is uneven. I have two girls and he has one guy. They’re all just going to walk alone and I don’t think anyone is going to notice. I’ve seen a lot more weddings go this route lately and I’ve never heard anyone comment on the fact it was uneven.
