My wedding isn’t until next year but we have the exact same numbers. I’m not worried about it since we’ve got a pretty good photographer who will ‘place’ everyone.

I also think as long as you have the people you love stood up there with you, you won’t notice 🙂

Ours is going to be uneven. He’ll have his brother as best man, and I’m having my best friend & sister as co-MOHs.

Ours is uneven – we have 3 bridesmaids, 1 page boy and 5 groomsmen.

It doesnt bother me at all.

Unevenness does bother me, but that’s because I’m a little obsessive about all the details matching up.

I don’t have any pictures to share but I don’t really think its a big deal. I had 7 bridesmaids and my husband didn’t even have any groomsmen.

I made a point of it to have a small and even wedding party. I wanted the groomsmen to escort the bridesmaids down the aisle. Our aisle will be very narrow.

Google “more bridesmaids than groomsmen” then click images and there’s loads of photos.

When the bridesmaids and groomsmen are called up to dance, who do the other two bridesmaids dance with also who walks them down the aisle at the end of the ceremony? To me one groomsman walking two bridesmaids up the aisle does not look right. It’s not photography that would bug me, it’s these things.

I didn’t even realise that people had more than the best man stand up with the groom on the grooms side, until a few months ago.

We’re just having a best man, and 4 bridesmaids. 

I don’t like the idea of more than one best man, and all the weddings I’ve been to have only had the one man with the groom, and then a few bridesmaids. I honestly don’t understand why there are suddenly loads of ‘groomsmen’ in weddings.

I think it’s worse ‘filling spaces’ with random bodies – who are going to know that they’re only there to make up numbers, than having uneven numbers of people.

I don’t even notice.  Numbers matching up shouldn’t matter, it should be about having who you want on that day.

I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and an FlowerGirl, and he has 3 Best Men and one Usher 🙂 which is cool with me

I was in a wedding a few years ago with 6 bridesmaids & 1 best man.  The best man also was the officiant though so there were 3 girls on each side.

I don’t think it matters, and no point in inviting randoms friends there just to round out the numbers.

We originally had an even party (8BM/8GM), but someone dropped last minute and it wasn’t a huge deal.

We had 5 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen. It didn’t bother me any! We had two groomsmen walk the last bridesmaid down the aisle after the ceremony. It looked cute!
