I almost have never seen an even wedding. You just have 2 guys walk with 1 girl to make up for the one less girl or have every walk in the ceremony individually rather than paired up. This is sad that your sister will miss it but uneven bridal parties are almost always the case int he weddings I have seen.

I’m so sorry that your sister won’t be able to make to your other sister’s wedding. But congrats are in order as well!! My family is very tight knit as well and I would be devastated if my bro couldn’t make it. Although — it’s for a very awesome and happy reason, so kind of a catch-22 right??

To get to your problem though — I say leave the sides uneven. We are having 6 girls and 4 guys and I don’t see it being a problem. You can have 2 guys walk with 1 girl or have everyone walk in and out alone. It can be done!

In weddings I’ve been in that were uneven one girl was escorted by two guys.  It works fine.  Its not good to ask someone to be a bridesmaid just for numbers- its too big of a commitment for that.  Besides, if you don’t fill her place, you can still list your older sister as an honorary bridesmaid in the program, since she obviously would want to be in it if she could.  And she can still contribute to shower, etc.

Oh that’s sad!  I would say keep it uneven and have the Maid of Honor walk alone.  Or have one of the groomsman step down and be an usher.  Best of luck!

First of all, I don’t think she should move the wedding date. It’s unfortunate your older sister can’t make it.. but anything can happen so keep that in mind. There will always be a good reason to change the date, don’t start playing that game.

Second, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with an uneven wedding party 🙂 No one really notices, you just put two Groomsmen to 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and call it a day. We had 7 Groomsmen and 5 Bridesmaid or Best Man. I couldn’t handle a large bridal party and was adament about only having girls who I knew would be unselfish about the whole thing. On the other hand, our DH’s can have every guy they know in the world and the chances of drama are very low, so Darling Husband expanded his party to people he’s not as close with.

Yeah, I wouldn’t worry about the parties being uneven.  My photographer actually told us that UNeven parties look better in pictures.

Anyways, that’s so exciting that she’s having a baby!  Your parents must be freaking out with joy–a wedding and a grandchild all in one month. Congrats to her and to your younger sis!

I’m glad it worked out for her to be there! I would have been really bummed if my sister were in that situation!
