I’m having the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man go down together and then two a Bridesmaid or Best Man on both arms of the two groomsmen. You can do the two BM/1 Groomsmen too, it would work. Or they all go single file. It can be done.

If you have a flower girl or ring bearer, you could have your Maid/Matron of Honor or a Bridesmaid or Best Man walk them out… it could be cute!

I had an uneven number of girls and guys. 3 ladies and 4 men. It’s fine! No one is even going to be looking at your wedding party after the ceremony. All eyes will be on you and your groom. If you are really worried about it, have one of your girls walk out on her own or one of your guys accompanied by two girls. he will LOVE that. When it comes time to announce the bridal party, we just had two of our groomsmen accompany one of my girls. It was fun and playful and again, all eyes will be on you! Enjoy and relax.

Haha, my mother had the same response when I told her there were going to be 6 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen (plus one junior bridesmaid and groomsmen/usher).:) I wasn’t willing to cut anyone and my fiance didn’t want to add anyone, in the end it’s going to be our pictures and we want peope in the pictures that matter to us. For the processional, only the girls will walk in (the guys will already be up there as I’m going to have them act as ushers as well), for the recessional I plan on having two of the groomsmen walk two bridesmaids each back down the aisle… the groomsmen will get a kick out of it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus I don’t think any of the girls really care. That’s such a small part of the wedding and everyone is so eager to get out of their seat and to the reception that I don’t think they’ll be paying that much attention.

We started out with 6 guys and 6 girls, but now…

We have 6 girls still, and we were down to 2 guys due to military deployments, and then fiance added his younger bro so we were going to do 2 BMs per Groomsmen, one on each arm, but now I think one of the 3 GMs is ‘filtering himself out" though his wife is a Bridesmaid or Best Man, awkward… so at this point we’re just not worried about how it looks.  The best man and Maid/Matron of Honor are married so they can walk together, and then everyone else single file.  Seriously though, nobody cares about that, they only care about the bride and groom.

I have this exact issue! I have 4 BM’s and Mr.Craig has 5 GM’s. My Maid/Matron of Honor is a one-of-a-kind and single always looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Rightnow. We’ve decided to do something cute as the wedding party walks out together …

She’ll begin walking with the Best Man and about 1/3 of the way she’ll say "hold on" and run back and get GM#5 and walk them both the rest of the way!

It is completely something she would do and it is totally her personality! The boys aren’t too upset about it either ๐Ÿ™‚

Have one of the GMs with 2 BMs on either side! I’m sure he’ll approve. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We are having 3 BMs and 1 best man plus 3 groomsmen. I never thought of it as being a problem to be perfectly honest! The BMs are walking down the aisle w/o escorts, so it’s no big deal!

I have 6 BMs and Fiance has 5 groomsmen.  I’m not having the guys walk down the aisle with the girls (I think it may be a New England thing…) the guys are lined up with the groom up front and the girls all walk down the aisle alone.  The groomsmen escort the girls out down the aisle.  One guy will walk two girls down the aisle.

I think it will be just fine!  I am having 7 BMs and my Fiance has 5 GMs.  I am going to have the last two guys take two girls out I think!  I’ve been to weddings where this has been done before!  Don’t worry!!!!
