My fiancé wanted 3 and I had 7 girls I wanted to ask, but I cut it back to 3. Mostly just because we are getting married in my hometown and my fiancés family is smaller than mine and out of state. there will be at least 3X more guests from my side, so I didn’t want to have a ton more bridesmaids too and make him appear unloved. If the guest list weren’t so lopsided I would have asked more.

I’m having two women stand up with me, Fiance is having four men. We are both very comfortable and happy with our decision as these are the people who mean the world to us. Niether of us care how it looks, especially in photos. Afterall, we are there to get married, not photographed 🙂

Ours was uneven :). Four bridesmaids and five groomsmen! Everything went perfectly fine and the photos look great.

Ours will be uneven too! We will have 5 on my side (including a man of honour!) and 3 on FI’s side.

I’m having four girls, a guy, two eight year old bridesmaids, and two flower girls. Fiance has five guys and a ring bearer. Don’t worry about symmetry and ask those closest to you.

@May312014: I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 bridesmaid. My fiance will have a bestman, and definitely one groomsman. Possibly 2 (depends if my little brother gets leave from the Navy and can fly home froam Japan in time). Either way it will look fine! Do what’s right for you!
