I had an uneven bridal party because Darling Husband and I didn’t just want to put people in it just because. I would leave it as is.

@jwill4591:  i wouldn’t stress about adding someone.  if they weren’t close enough to have been asked at the outset, they shouldn’t be in the bridal party.  i don’t really understand the obsession about “even.”  i’ve never ever ever seen a bad bridal party picture because of the number of people.  bad photographers, yes. ruined because of the number of people in the photo, no.  relax and enjoy your day.

I don’t think it’s unfair to ask someone at short notice.  3 months of planning for a bridesmaid is nothing compared to 3 months of final planning for a wedding.

I also totally understand wanting to have an “even” bridal party.  I don’t understand picking the bridal party based on how close they are compared to others.  My Fiance and I want a fairly average sized bridal party (three attendants each), and if one of my gals drops out or one of his guys drops out, we have plenty of other friends who are completely worthy of stepping up.  If we picked all our like-aged friends who were “worthy” of being in our bridal party, I think we would probably have 10 or 12 people, which overwhelms our 50 guest wedding.
