This is one of those “pick your battles” things.  I think that as a compromise, you should add your cousin as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, but have everyone but the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man stand up with you.  That way everyone else will fill some seats and it won’t look awkward.  That will also help your Fiance keep the peace in his family, and that benefits you too!

I think there’s nothing wrong with just leaving it uneven.  That’s what we’re doing.  I’m having 4 bridesmaids, because he asked me to include his sister, and I couldn’t bear the thought of not having one of my close friends.  He was only able to come up with three people that he wanted to be groomsmen. 

Where I TOTALLY understand where he’s coming from though, is he’s asked these guys to be groomsmen, but still hasn’t asked one of them to be the best man.  He told me the other day that he doens’t think there’s any real reason he has to pick one.  Umm… when one of them has to sign the registry (Canadian thing), and make a speech, it’s going to be pretty obvious who it is…

I think you should have your close friends stand with you regardless of whether the numbers are uneven or it’s a small wedding. Either go with 4 and 5 or add your cousin. Your Fiance is right not to leave out a friend just because of aesthetics.

I understand your concern… having too many people up there for a small Vegas wedding. Where is your ceremony? (I’m a Vegas bride too, at the Wynn).  I’m not worrying too much about symmetry… I’m having three bridesmaids, and Fiance is having two groomsmen.

@shannon1126: Yeah, sorry!  LOL.  I meant have just your Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man stand up with you!  (Baby brain, sorry!)  Everyone else can walk down the aisle, then part and walk to their seats, the BMs to the bride’s side and the GMs to the groom’s side.  We did this with our attendants, because we only had 30 people at the wedding.  It worked out well I think, and in the pictures of the ceremony it’s just my Maid/Matron of Honor, me, Darling Husband, and his Bridesmaid or Best Man.  It gave the “small, intimate” feeling that we wanted.
