@AverageBessyJ:  Girl same thing happened to us. We started with 4 guys and now have two. One is just a jerk and the other can’t get the day off =( So 2 BMs with 1 guy, 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man with 1 guy, then my 2 Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man together. I wish it was even but nothing I can do

We’ve planned to have different numbers of bridesmaids and groomsmen all along. It’s just who we’d pick to be up there with us. Remember that it usually only matters for walking out (my girls are walking into ceremony alone w guys already standing at front), being announced at reception, and the few pictures that include the whole bridal party. 

Leaving ceremony, one guy can walk with 2 girls or vice versa, nobody cares- you just got married and they mostly just wanted to see you. Same thing for getting announced into reception. For pics, I’ve never really liked the full group pics anyway. i prefer clumps of ppl (like the pic on the stairs) rather than long lines of boy/girl pairings that are mostly just made up for the day.

I had to cut 2 people I would have liked to have in  my wedding because it would have just been tooo many for me. Then, 2 of my maids found out they were due within days of the wedding (one was 2 days after, the other 5 days before). Rather than have an uneven party, I decided to ask the 2 girls I would have liked to have anyway to stand up with me. They were not insulted at all and were happy to do it. So I guess I wanted that even number which is kind of funny because they already mismatched and its a very casual untraditional wedding. To each their own I guess
