Nope! You are not wrong in thinking that! It’s a bummer that people don’t understand that.

Sorry all this is going on! Hope it all gets better! : )

no, your not wrong. however, it would look and feel awkward for a woman to be escorted by a 9 yr. old. Why do they have to walk together?

I totally understand bridal party drama. I lost my Maid/Matron of Honor (twice) and then the girl I was going to promote cheated on her husband who is also a groomsmen. Ya, we’re down two. 2 ladies will be each escorted by 2 men. It’s OK to have uneven numbers… 

I wasn’t happy about this all when it happened barely a few weeks ago (like you, I was like, REALLY, NOW! Within a MONTH you tell me!) but I’ve come to terms with being uneven and once you decide to be OK with something it will help a lot 🙂

Why not just have the parties be uneven? There’s nothing weird about that, and it seems like asking somebody to be in your wedding party at this point is kind of a no-no – it makes it seem like that person is only important to you as a stand-in or as someone to keep numbers even (which they are), not as someone who is important enough in your life to ask them to begin with. I am not very supportive of the whole “the numbers have to be even” thing. It’s about who is important to you, and that is almost never perfectly paired off boy-girl-boy-girl evenly.

I think it’s wrong of your Bridesmaid or Best Man to back out because of who she’s walking with. She should be there to support you first and foremost, this isn’t about her. And I’m sorry to hear you’ve had so much ‘turnover’ with the groomsmen!

Honestly you’re so close now I would just accept the fact that the parties are uneven. Better to only have your intended true friends stand then try to force the issue to make it ‘look nice’.
