Ok so here’s the deal. I have 7 bridesmaids (including MOH) and two of which are my future hubby’s sisters. Since we are getting married in California and most of our friends and family are in Tennessee, only 4 groomsmen will be able to make it. What do we do? We don’t want to ask more groomsmen because there’s no one else that’s “close” to my fiancee and we don’t want to add someone just for numbers sake. But would it be ok to have his sisters in dresses that are a different color than the bridesmaids dresses (closer to groomsmen suit color) and have them stand on his side to try to even things out a bit? Thoughts, ideas, suggestions??

have the groomsmen stand at the front with the groom and the BMs all walk alone down the aisle before you. or you can double up Maid/Matron of Honor with Bridesmaid or Best Man then 2 BM’s with each of the other groomsmen…i think it might be weird for his sisters if you make them “be groomsmen” just to even it out.

i agree. thats the same advice i was gonna give. and if you think it will look odd while they stand at the alter with you guys you can have them sit during the ceremony and walk out together.

I had 6 BM’s and my husband had 8 Gm’s. We had the best man (my husbadns brother) walk his mother down the aisle and then the second Groomsmen in line walked my mother down. Then the 3 walked my grandmother and the 4th walked his grandmother. They all just took their places in front.
Then the remaining 4 GM’s walked on the side of the church to stand in line while my husband walked down the aisle himself.
Then as everyone was walking out fo the church, the last 2 BM’s doubled up. That was how it was when they introduced everyone into the reception as well. It went well adn I think it looked great!

I agree with PP. For our reception (8 BMs, 7 GM) we had the married couples walk in together but had my 3 girlfriends walk in together and the 3 guys walk in together. It just makes more sense. No need to couple up strangers!
