I had more bridesmaids than groomsmen. We just had a couple of the groomsmen walk with 2 girls and it worked out. I wouldn’t worry about keeping the wedding party “balanced”. Have whoever you would like to in your wedding no matter how uneven. In the end, no one really cares about who walks with who or whatever. I don’t think that it is something the guests pay any attention to.

Nobody says you have to have pictures with them lined up, or that you must have the same number of people on each side of you at the head table. You don’t even have to place “his” party on one side and “your” party on the other. 

Where did this tradition even begin? I personally like a little bit of asymmetry.

I had 4 BMs and 3 Groomsmen.  I just had each person walk by themselves and staggered them….girl/boy/girl/boy/girl/boy/girl.  It looked fine and pictures of us standing at the altar with the bridal party were fine as well.  

If you had like 5 to his 1, that might look a bit odd.

It depends what is more important to you: your friends being beside you, or your pictures being even.

I’d go for the friends.

I’ve got 4 BMs, which is 2 more than I had originally planned. No idea about the GMs yet… probably not that many, though.

Three bridesmaids, two groomsmen. It was awesome. Don’t stress about numbers. A good photographer will make it look good.

I had 4, he had 3.  The girls walked down the aisle alone, guys entered from the side.  It worked well.  I think for you up to 3 would not look too off-balanced…

FIs groomsmen are falling-out like flies and I can’t ask BMs to step down.  It’s going to be uneven, but, like a pp mentioned, a great photographer will make it work.  I think you should have as many as you wish and don’t fret over it.

I am having 6 bridesmaids and he is only having a best man. I don’t think it is a big deal.

I’m having 9 bridesmaids and he’s having 5 groomsmen. I’m usually very big on symmetry, but there’s no reason for me to leave people out or for him to add people he doesn’t necessarily want. There are no rules, so make up your own! 🙂

So far I have 8 BMs and 4 GMs and I don’t think my Fiance is adding any more guys. I don’t mind.
