One of my bridesmaids called me 1 month before the wedding to tell me that she ran into some financial problems and would not be able to make the wedding. We were going to have 5 and 5, but now we have 4 and 5. Is this strange to have an odd number? I was going to have them walk down in pairs….what do you think? I am waiting on the response of my brothers girlfriend. Kind of last minute! Eeek. I am tired of stressing about it too!!! Any other solutions, and does anyone know of a bride that this has happend to?

Maybe instead of pairs alternate boy, girl, boy, girl? It may still look unbalanced at the alter, but it won’t look that way walking down the aisle. To be honest, I don’t think it will look bad.

@Couellet978: no worries. sometimes, you gotta work with what you got!
can you have the Maid/Matron of Honor walk by herself?
there is a possibility that one of FI’s groomsman won’t make it to our wedding (on active duty), but he’s irreplaceable so if all else fails we will have 5 female attendants and 4 groomsmen.
i don’t think it would look weird at all!

Well thanks all!!! I was actually able to ask my brothers girlfriend who has known the family for 6 years, and she agreed to do! She is a life saver!
I think we would have just worked with what we had if that was the case….one fire put out! ahhhh
