Having an uneven number of bridesmaids & groomsmen seems to be an increasingly accepted trend. I’m considering this for our upcoming wedding– I have 5 ladies I want to include, and Fiance only has 4 men. I’m kind of hung up on how it will look in the photos– I’d love to see some real life posed photos where you had an uneven number of attendants. Did you feel like it mattered at all or am I making a mountain out of a molehill?

@MissMay3003: We don’t have too many pics back yet, but we had an uneven bridal party and it didn’t really matter. He had 4 Groomsmen and I had 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man. For the entrance, one of our BMs just had a guy on each arm. Honestly, only have people in your bridal party that you really want. We had zero drama with our bridal party, and I think it’s because we stuck with this rule! Also, if you really want a friend in your bridal party, be sure to do that, even if it will make for uneven numbers!

I actually think that it will look more balanced in pictures — you will be in the middle, with 5 bridesmaids on one side of you, and 5 men who are dressed the same on the other side (even though one of the 5 is the groom!) (Well, this is assuming your Fiance will be wearing the same suit or whatever as the groomsmen). I think it will be just fine.

We had 8 girls, 7 guys, 3 flowergirls, and 1 ring bearer. I don’t think you can even tell unless you count. Youngest flowergirl had a breakdown so she is not pictured!

I had my Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man, husband had 1 Best man, although the pup was also one 🙂
so, uneven as far as people go and it was fine!

@MissMay3003: I will have an uneven bridal party (7 Groomsmen and 5 BMs) and I’m actually excited about it! I think it gives the photos such a natural look as opposed to too “posed” and matchy-matchy. Here are some nice photos I found on Google images, haha!
I think it looks great!

I am in the same boat as you are. My Fiance has 5 groomsmen and I have 4 bridesmaids . I think as long as you are happy and so is ur fiance then dont worry about it, you already have enough to worry about:)

At the moment we have 3 bridesmaids, 1 groomsman, a ring bearer, and two flower girls. We may add another groomsman if he can make it to the wedding from overseas! I really don’t think it’s a big deal to be uneven.
