So, I wil be a young bride, and I have a younger sister who will be 11 at the time of the wedding. Although her young age she is my best friend, I don’t know if that sounds weird…but its completely true. I also will not have any bridesmaids since I don’t have any of those kinds of friends. I always envisoned my best friends from when I was young to be my bridesmaids, but they met my Fiance, and kind of left me in the dust. (He’s hearing impared and I guess they weren’t comfortable with him, definitely a good rant for another time, but I guess it showed me that they weren’t really my friends.) Fiance has two best friends who one will be groomsman and one will be best man. I have this thing about having an even wedding party, but I don’t want to make him exclude his very close friend. I’m not sure what to do… I always saw an uneven wedding party as awkward. Does anyone have any advice, or pictures of thier uneven wedding parties to show?
The wedding is two years away and I’m sure I’ll make some better friends in the meantime, am I worrying about nothing so early already? :/

These days it’s not awkward to have an uneven wedding party. But keep your chin up, you have time and it may not end up being uneven 😉 maybe you’ll make some great friends over that time who won’t be judgmental about Fiance.

Its not weird at all having an uneven wedding party.
You have a lot of time, I agree with Chaeinlove that you may find even better friends than the ones that were judgemental.

@miss.wiggums: I’m having an uneven wedding party. FH has 5 on his side and I have 3. I was really worried about it, but it’s so common these days to have uneven parties, it’ll be ok. If you do make a good friend and want them to be in the party, ask! But if you don’t, it’s ok. I’ve seen lots of uneven parties, and it still looks great in photos!

If it makes you feel better, my FI’s sister got married at 19, and their (at the time) 12 year old sister was her maid of honor.
Are there family members you can include? Either yours or his? Families tend to come together more during weddings. And 2 years is a long time! I say don’t worry about it now, and see how things unfold.

Thank you guys so much! I’m still a little wary, but not so much now. 🙂
