I’m sorry about that.  I ended up not having my Maid/Matron of Honor able to attend either.  My only Bridesmaid or Best Man was my SIL for the wedding.  Do you have other bridesmaids?  You could bump one of them up, or just not even have a Maid/Matron of Honor.

Aw that stinks, I think you should upgrade one of your BMs to Maid/Matron of Honor. I wouldn’t worry about having even sides.

Thats to bad. If I were you I would just list all the bridesmaids as bridesmaids or as MOHs and not have the seperation, dont demot a groomsmen though, that would just be hurtful for him.

I would have one really lucky groomsmen just walk down with two girls 🙂

That does really suck. Well, it’s an understandable situation and it’s not the end of the world to either bump up an Maid/Matron of Honor or just not have one. Maybe you and Fiance could do without an Maid/Matron of Honor or best man… and you can ask a close family member/sibling to stand on your side.

I would say you should NOT try to upgrade someone this close to your wedding.  I’m guessing at this point your Maid/Matron of Honor has already helped you a lot with things like showers and a bachelorette party.  Naming someone else Maid/Matron of Honor would hurt her feelings and the new Maid/Matron of Honor would certainly feel like a second choice (because she was after all).  I would just go ahead and have uneven sides at the wedding.  List your Maid/Matron of Honor in the program and following her name write a note that she was unable to attend.

If you want to have even numbers walking down the aisle, could you have the Best Man already up there with the groom when the rest of the processional starts? And then have him escort two of the ladies out at the end of the ceremony?
