Is he okay with this (you having some and him not)?  I would just place some people on his side and some on your side to even it up.

I would let you friends stand with you as you walk down the aisle, kiss you then let them have a seat. It is going ot look weird with that many people up there. I normally don’t care about uneveness but 4 to 0 is too much of a big deal.

You could ask your friends to stand up for you as a couple, instead of just for you, then split them to stand on either “your” side or “his” side based on height, so that each of you gets one of the two tallest and one of the two shortest, making a nice even line.  Doing it by height prevents any chance that anyone gets their feelings out of whack for being placed on one side or the other, and having all of the attendants come from your social circle can be seen as your loved ones welcoming your fiance to the extended family/friend network.

As a guest, watching 4 bridal attendants of either gender each kiss the bride, say a little wish in her ear (because that will happen even if you don’t plan for it) then take a seat is going to make the processional drag out, possibly uncomfortably.
