My Groom has five best men, I have three bridesmaids, I am not opposed to the number difference (maybe just a little) mainly just he needs to settle on 1 best man. How do I, in a nice forcible way, get it across to him to pick just 1 best man and maybe get him to narrow down the numbers (if possible)?

Had a similar problem, We do in fact have 2 best men, but really could not choose between the two. Maybe having him narrow it down to 1 may be a lot to ask, maybe having him do 2 may help… and maybe one groomsman? Have the other men be specifically ushers and the groomsmen can just relax and not worry about this aspect of the day, that way all parties are involved and you can have even numbers?

Loverboy has 6 best men. He says it’s because “they’re all the best.” I lolled. It’s fine, I think?

@Beluga: I also have a brideman (a guy in my bridal party) I just don’t know if it will look weird having 7 guys up there at the altar and only three girls including myself. I’m slowely working on him. *sigh*

I have 4 maids of honor and he has 3 best men. We didn’t feel like it was fair to single anyone out because they’re all very special to us. If he really wants all five to be best men, what difference would it really make? If it really bothers you, just tell him that and maybe you two can work out a compromise. Maybe one or two of them can be ushers or something instead.

I don’t think he needs to unless it’s going to bug the crap out of you- lol. Neither of us chose a best man or maid of honor; we each have three attendants on an equal level because we couldn’t choose.
