@TerraWellness: oooh boy! Im okay with lopsided parties, but six and one would look pretty “odd”. Is he close enough to some of the girls that some could just physically stand on his side at the alter? I dont know…ack..i really dont have a suggestion besides explaining the situation to the girls or you aksing another 5 guys to stand up for you FI!

We are having uneven attendants as well. My Fiance has two circles of friends (childhood and school) that he could not decide between and decided to invite them all. He will be having 6 GMs. I have only decided to have 4 BMs. I didn’t want to ask two additional friends to be a BMS just so that they will fill a spot – I wanted specific people to be with me on this special day and did not want additional drama in asking the wrong people to be with me. He might also be thinking this too

Does your Fiance know the purpose of groomsmen? Sometimes they may not, so you can help to discuss the groomsmen role and help to brainstorm if there are people he knows who fit this bill.

If he won’t ask any more, maybe you can have your Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man only stand by your side at the altar, and have the other bridesmaids process in and then sit in the front row.  That way all your girls are honored, but you still have symmetry in pictures during the ceremony.

You may not want to do this (not sure how traditional your wedding is), but if the girls haven’t bought their dresses yet, and you don’t care if they aren’t men, they could get black dresses and be on the grooms’ side if you don’t mind him borrowing them? 🙂 Kind of the next step from Baileyh’s suggestion. Or ask some men from either family if they would be in the wedding party.
