Nope, you don’t have to have three bridesmaids. Or you could keep the original bridesmaid and just list her in the program as “bridesmaid in absentia.” Just have the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man walk together, and then have your lucky second bridesmaid be escorted by two guys!

Not to worry. There is no rule that you  must have the same number of attendants on each side. Do a google search and you will see many couples with uneven numbers.

hi month twin!

I agree with everyone else. No need to have the exact numbers of bridesmaids & groomsmen.  I’m having two MOHs (one maid, one matron), so I have 7 bridesmaids total — the Fiance is having 6. We’re just having one of the groomsmen walk with two bridesmaids! I think it’s kind of cute!

Good luck planning, and Happy New Year!

I had 4 girls and Darling Husband had 3 guys—no big deal

Don’t pick someone just to pick her to fill a spot. She should be someone you truly want standing up there with you. Keep it as two.

@KCKnd2:  I was in a wedding where a bridesmaid dropped out, and I ended up being escorted by two groomsmen.  It felt and looked awkward (even the bride admitted it, but the groom’s mom insisted on it).  They were beefy guys and the three of us barely fit down the aisle width-wise.  I would have best man escort the Maid/Matron of Honor, and then have the other attendants walk down singly (alternate guy/girl/guy).
