It doesn’t matter, not even a little bit, if the parties are uneven. Nobody will care, and neither of you should feel pressured to have more or fewer people standing up there with you. They are your closest friends/siblings, and that’s all there is to it. Few people have freakishly even numbers of people they are really close to!

I know it doesn’t really matter, but I am so OCD about symmetry that I would never be able to have an uneven wedding party.  That’s just my weirdness though!

No it’s not wrong! No one will really notice. One option you could think about though, is having his sister stand on his side!

Uneven bridal parties happen all the time.  Its no biggie!  Most people won’t even think twice about it.  If you’d rather, you can have everyone walk down the aisle solo, instead of in pairs.

It’s completely personal preferance. I had the same issue at first 3 BM’s 5 GM’s. Every kept telling me it was not a big deal, but I kept looking at pictures of uneven bridal parties and thinking about it, and it was something that bothered ME. So we are now at 6 GM’s and 6 BM’s. That was a choice I made so I could be even and I am SO glad I did it. But again thats what I wanted and no amount of people telling me it was ok was going to work.

I’m a bit bothered by something being “wrong” in this case…your bridal party isn’t supposed to be some aesthetically pleasing tableau, it is the people who are closest to you that you want standing up with you. To add someone you are not close with or to decline to ask someone you are close with just to even out the party seems more “wrong” to me. If you want them up there, stand them up there! It will really only be an issue for the approximately 30 seconds when they walk back down the aisle- just assign two girls to one guy.

personally i think its wrong to just ask random people who you arent THAT close with to be BM’s or GM’s just for the sake of even sides.

we have uneven – it was gonna be 9 and 5, but went down to 7 and 5 and we just found out that a Groomsmen backed out so now its 6 and 5 – doesnt bother me in the least!

have who YOU want up there. its yalls day!!! 🙂

Personally – I don’t like the look of uneven wedding parties.  I know there is technically nothing “wrong” with it but I could never do it myself and personally don’t care for the way it looks.

Why not have your FI’s sister stand on his side?  If you aren’t that close to her but you both want to include her, there is no reason she can’t be one of his attendants!

We are uneven, it never bothered me. He has 6 and I have 5, he has one extra bc his dad is his Best man. We just decided that the girls would walk in by themselves and when they are leaving Fiance dad will just grab his mom out of her seat and walk down the aisle with her, and then everyone else will be matched up. Does you Fiance have his dad as a groomsmen? I never heard of having parents in the wedding party before my Fiance, but i think its a good idea. If he doesn’t maybe you could see if he like the idea and that would even you guys out a little bit more. 🙂
