DWs inherently will be more difficult for people to get to. Even if the final guest list is small, at least it will be an intimate group of your family and friends. Sorry about losing the bridesmaids. If they’re not going to be there, I don’t think you should feel obligated to keep them on the bridesmaids email list or anything. Maybe you can save the gifts for their birthdays or something. In terms of symmetry, 4 groomsmen and 2 bridesmaids will work out very well. 2 groomsmen can walk down the aisle with each bridesmaid.

holycrapimgettingmarried:  One of the crappy things about a DW is that a lot of people won’t be able to make it. How sucky that two of them are bridesmaids! I would still consider them bridesmaids, because if they could make it they would. About walking down the aisle, I’ve seen lots of weddings where the groomsmen all start up at the front with the groom, and just the ladies walk down the aisle. Or you could have best man & MOH walk together, then a guy solo, then a guy with a lady, and last guy solo.

holycrapimgettingmarried:  If you  want to keep them as bridesmaids, I say go ahead. You could call them honorary bridemaids if you feel the need to differentiate.
