You don’t need even sides!  Do not ask someone you seem really ambivalent about and who your fiance doesn’t even like for the sake of even sides!  I am also only having 2 girls, my sister and best friend and I couldn’t imagine anyone else standing up there with me.  It’s about those who have been supportive of you and there for your through out your life, not a number.

If you are having any doubts, don’t ask her.  Planning a wedding is stressful and brings out the worst in people.  It’s totally fine to have uneven sides (My Fiance has 4 groomsmen, and I have 3 bridesmaids).  I had originally asked another girl, but she dropped out.  Smaller is 100% better when it comes to bridal parties!

@KayBeeJay:  I was in the reverse situation. I wanted 3, fiance wanted 2. So we had 2 each and my 3rd choice did a reading. But in my case it was easy because she (close friend since I was 18) clearly ranked behind my sister and my best-friend-since-I-was-12. Can your fiance “rank” his best friends and ask one of them to do a reading instead?

I’ve read a lot of horror stories about fickle friends as bridesmaids.
