    I think the reason you’re not getting responses is that most people don’t actually agree with the need to have matching sides in the first place.  If your attendants are supposed to be the people you’re closest to, it would be quite unusual for bride and groom to have an identical number of people they are close to.

    I think having your brother and father walking you down the aisle would be nice :), i’m having my youngest brother walk me down the aisle because he has been the only male figure that was there for me.

    I used to think uneven sides looked horrible but was wa BM in a wedding back in 2010 and the bride had 4 BM’s and the groom had 2 GM.. In the end I thought it looked pretty good 🙂

    I don’t think having them both walk you down the aisle (especially if you’re close to your brother) would look weird, but I would make sure to take your dad’s feelings into consideration. 
    For most fathers this is the big moment your entire life has been leading to- giving you away to another man to have him take care of you. 
    If you were close to your dad and he had an active part in your life, I would have a serious heart to heart with him to make sure he’s okay with sharing the moment.

    @mrsztobee:  to me I don’t like it just becaus eyou want to bridal party sides to be even, and I’m assuming you already had a spot/role for your brother? so I say no.

    @mrsztobee:  my philosophy with all wedding choices like this is to focus on the FEELINGS and what is MEANINGFUL to the couple and their families. you’re close with your brother and your dad. that is special. honor them both! no one will judge if it looks “weird” or not, they will be too busy wiping tears from their eyes!
