Don’t worry about it! I think you will be glad to spend that day with your best source of support, rather than trying to meet any sort of expectation. It is also a tradition in Europe to have a solo Maid/Matron of Honor, just so you know. I think it is great you feel close enough to your sister to ask her to be your Maid/Matron of Honor.

Kslim13:  You could have male friends or family. You can have an uneven party.

Personally, I don’t think it’s a big deal if the numbers of attendants are uneven. I’m having two and my fiance decided he didn’t want any. Far better to have uneven numbers than ask people you aren’t comfortable with to be BMs. BMs seem to cause enough stress without having people you barely know up there with you.

Kslim13:  Does he have one brother or best friend? You could put it to him that if he only has one guy up there (i.e. a best man and no one else), it’s not so bad on the others being left out. (And let’s face it, apart from best man and Maid/Matron of Honor, the bridal party has no role except as props in the photos).

He could include most or all of the other guys by having them be ushers or do a reading. He could still include all his best friends in some photos too.
