I am having 7 bridesmaids in the party, and my Fiance is having 6 groomsmen. He thought about adding another "stand-in" to even out the number but, we would have to choose one brother in-law over another and didn’t want to go there. Walking in is not a problem for my ladies, but when we process out, it may look awkward with having one of the ladies not have a guy by here side. I was thinking that one of the sisters could have her husband on the outside of one of the aisle, to escort her back down, but then we are playing the "you need to sit here game." The ceremony is outside, and pretty informal.

Why don’t you have your Maid/Matron of Honor walk alone?
I don’t think anyone will think it’s odd if someone walks alone. Or, you could have one guy walk with two ladies.

I think it would be cute to have the last guy walk in with two ladies on his arm…he’d feel like "da man"! He could even smile and ham it up a bit..

I’ve been to weddings where two ladies walk with one guy and it turned out fine. The guy liked the idea too!

Same suggestion- have 1 Groomsmen walk 2 BMs.

I’m expecting to have be one Groomsmen short as well. I think to get around the issue and to avoid forcing my friends to walk down a long church aisle with one of his friends, I am going to have all of the women walk alone.
I went to a wedding where the men just stood at the front of the church while the women walked to the front of the church. Since my fiance has married friends and others who are committed, I think this will just avoid any awkwardness. Plus, girls deserve more attention than boys!!! 🙂

I like the idea of two Bridesmaid or Best Man and one groomsmen. Or you could always have an usher come down the side of the church while the bridesmaids and groomsmen are filing out, and then have him meet up with the last bridesmaid.

Wow, my fiance and I are in the exact opposite situation. I have waaay too many groomsmen. I think right now I have 3 more groomsmen then she has bridesmaids, and to make it worse, I have a woman in my party. (My best friend is a woman.) So, some of my dudes are going to have to sit or something. We haven’t decided what we’re doing about that yet. Then again, we’re having an Indian Muslim ceremony, so there’s really nothing for the wedding parties to do besides stand around in pictures.
