I’m not going to bore you with the details (see my other posts if you want the full story lol), but my two sisters have been fighting with my mom and now consider me a traitor for refusing to get involved. They have gotten really vindictive and hateful towards me, so needless to say, they are no longer in the wedding.
My fiance has four guys he’s already asked to be his groomsmen, and obviously it would be crazy to “unask” any of them. I now have two bridesmaids, but he has four groomsmen. Our wedding will take place in a small backyard ceremony. Is it going to look totally crazy to have 4 guys and 2 girls? Please be honest! 🙂 I feel weird asking anyone else to be a bridesmaid because they will probably feel like “replacements.”

When I was in a bridal party, I was walked down the aisle by two groomsmen, for the number was uneven. It looked perfectly fine!

I have 2 bridesmaids and my Fiance has 4 groomsmen one of which is a girl as his best man (his sister). I don’t think it will look weird at all. Different maybe but not shocking.

Thanks, girls! I feel a lot better about it now. 🙂

Do you have any guy friends you can ask? My bridal party will be 3 girls and 3 guys – if they’re supposed to be the people who are closest to you, I don’t see why you can’t have guys on your side.
I was recently asked to be a replacement bridesmaid. I accompanied my friend to David’s to help pick out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses with 2 of her BM’s. #3 was a no show – and she basically asked me since #3 prob. couldn’t even make it to the wedding or bear the costs, if I would step in for her. Personally, I don’t think I’m “runner-up”. She presented it this way: our FI’s are BFF’s and we’re pretty much going to be friends for the rest of our lives, so why not. If you find some other people (guy or girl) and present it that way, you should be fine. Also, why not some other family members?

I really think I would rather stick with the two bridesmaids and four groomsmen if people don’t think it would look funny. I have some girlfriends from college who would be potential picks, but the thing is that our wedding is in northern Minnesota and my fiance and I live in South Carolina (I lived in MN until I was a jr. in high school), so not everyone can make such a big trip. :/
