Would it be awkward if I was to have no bridesmaids while my fiancé has four groomsmen? The problem is my fiancé has three brothers and I have one so that completes his side, but neither one of us have sisters. I am not one who has girl friends due to the fact they always stab me in the back. What should I do?

keep four groomsmen and have two guys stand on each side of you at the altar

I agree with marlew. 2 guys on each side. or do you have any female cousins, maybe, or are you close to any of your aunts?

I like the idea of having 2 on each side.

Thanks everyone I’ve been having such a problem with this, my fiancé thinks it should be more traditional his father is a pastor and he will be performing our ceremony. I have like one really close guy friend and my brother but of course he thinks that it needs to be girls on my side and boys on his. I’m so confused, do I let him have his way and attempt to find girls or do I put my brother on my side? HELP PLEASE!

I agree with two on each side…your brother and friend on your side. They can be your Dudes of Honor. People mix sexes on both sides all of the time.

No need to get girls to be in your party unless you are close to them. I know a girl who got married and they had eight groomsmen and no bridesmaids because she has four brothers and her fiance had two brothers and two best friends. It was nice and unique and true to them as a couple. Don’t feel pressured to gather any random girls to stand by your side on your most important day. You could tell your fiance that you should have only the people in your party whom are dear to you. Oh, and I also like the idea of having two guys on either side.

I think you’re fine and should just stick to your guns. Is your brother married or are any of his brothers married? You could include one of those wives if you wanted and that would give you a chance to get to know them better. That is if you get along with them. That’s the only compromise I’d really make.

Why does he want girls on your side? He might not have given it any thought and if you ask him why he might realise he is being silly. Besides your bridal party is up to you unless you’re dictating who he can have in his party.

You dont have to have females just to fill in space, two on each side is fine! There is no right or wrong way

have your brother stand with you. Uneven sides are fine.
