I think since it’s your day, it makes sense to go with what works for the two of you.  Traditions are nice as a guideline to folow, though there’s definitely no reason they have to be followed, especially if they don’t go along the lines with what you’re thinking.

Not exactly the same situation but we will have 7 bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen. We decided that we would ask those whom we care about to be in our wedding party and would not worry about equal sides. We didn’t see a point. I say you should have BMs if they are important to you and your fiance can skip the groomsmen since that is not important to him.

I am the kind of person that it HAS to be even for me… But that isn’t to say everybody has to do the same thing! I am just OCD like that. If you don’t want to add any more people, DON’T! You shouldn’t feel like you have to.

I am having 1 Matron of Honor, 1 Maid of Honor, 2 Bridesmaids, 1 Jr Bridesmaid, 2 Flowergirls, 1 Best Man and thats it. NO Groomsmen. My FH didn’t want groomsmen…i had to make him ask his best friend to be Best Man! But I’m fine with it, my girls don’t mind walking down the aisle by themselves

We also have an uneven amount.  I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and 5 bridesmaids *3 are my Fiance sisters* and he has his Bridesmaid or Best Man and 4 groomsmen.  What our plan is to even up all but one, and the last bridesmaid is going to walk our soon-to-be-nephew down the aisle, who will be our ring bearer!

i am like Cherry311.  i have a matron of honor, a maid of honor, 4 BMs, and Fiance has one Groomsmen (my brother in law). We may have a second if his nephew can make it.  actually 2 of my BMs may not be there either, so it could 4 – 1, or 6 – 2.  i didn’t like it at first, but thats just the way it was.  FI has moved around alot and doesnt really have close male friends to ask.  he did ask his childhood friend to be Best Man, but he can’t come to the wedding either.
