I have 4 (1Maid/Matron of Honor and 3 bridesmaids) and as for me i think there should be the same number of BMs to Groomsmen  but i cant stand things being off LOL

I have 4.  I do think it’s good to have equal numbers.  It’s also good to limit your bridemaids to just close friends.

I have 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 2 bridesmaids. They’re all my best friends (for like the last 15 years). Fiance is having 1 Best Man (his brother) and 2 groomsmen (best friends). Fiance is actually more of a stickler for even sides than I am. I don’t really care either way.

I have 3 and they’re my uni friends and best friends. There are 4 men including my stepdad in the Groom party. It will be about even.

I have five, but my Fiance only has 3 groomsmen. We don’t mind it being unbalanced and we didn’t want to exclude two of my closest friends simply because he only had three people he wanted to ask. So an uneven party was the best choice for us 🙂

I had four bridesmaids (my sister, his sister and my two best friends) and he had 3 groomsmen (his two best friends and his sister’s boyfriend).  It would have been nice to have an even number, but at the end of the day the two people that he’d considered for a fourth groomsmen didn’t even end up coming to our wedding.  I wouldn’t add an additional person that I’m not sure about just for the sake of even numbers.

Fiance & I both want the adults to be paired up, and originally Fiance wanted it to be gender-coordinated. I “won” that issue.

So originally I had 3 girls. Now I have 3 girls, 1 bridesman & a jr.bridesmaid/flower girl (she’s 9). Fiance has 3 guys and 1 groomswoman. The JB won’t be staying for the reception.

No Bridesmaid or Best Man, just 1 Maid/Matron of Honor for me. Since I’d have to pay for bridal party, I don’t feel like having too much expenses. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister and I’m paying for her dress.

6 and 6. I only wanted 3, he wanted 5 but I wanted even so that made 6 and I’m soooo glad I decided to add my 3 favorite cousins 🙂 That being said there is no reason it has to be even unless your obsessive and need it that way like I did.

I have 4 BMs and 1 Maid/Matron of Honor so a total of 5.  and 5 GMs too. I dont think it is an absolute rule that there the same number of BMs as GMs but it does make everything appear symmetrical and even. Plus my BMs and GMs are walking in together so its just easier to have the even numbers
