    hmmmm. i see no problem with the mixture of ages. i also see no problem with you having 3 attendants and Fiance having 2. there is not a rule that says the numbers must be even. but asking the uncle does not imply that Fiance has no friends: i would infer rather that family is important to him, which is exactly as it should be on a day that honours the beginning of your family.

    for your special day, you have chosen your friends and family to attend to you at your wedding. Fiance also has his attendants. they are those nearest to you and dearest to you. forget about titles, ages and numbers. you will be supported by those you love.

    I think any of your options are fine. The groomsmen should be those who are supportive of you. If people are unresponsive you probably don’t want them anyway. Is Fiance close to his uncle? For the most part family will always be there for you. I am sure the uncle would be honored no matter how close they are. And someone who is a little older will understand the honor and responsibility.

    I’m a little bit confused: does your Fiance feel uncomfortable having the uncle in the wedding at all, or just asking him to be in the wedding?

    I’m having  MOH and 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man and my Fiance is having just a best man and one Groomsmen, so we’ll be mismatched and I’m not at all concerned.
