Got a good suggestion, my wedding planner suggested it to me when I had reservations. I have 5 BM’s but my Fiance has 7 Groomsmen he wanted to ask. He kept bugging me to ask a couple more girls to even out the numbers. I’m only close to the 5 girls I wanted to ask, have more I COULD but just didn’t want to.

Find some pictures on line of wedding party group photos. Get a good bit of photos and every now and then mix in a few shots of wedding parties that’s got uneven numbers but don’t point it out. At the end of looking at maybe 25 photos (I had a hard time making Fiance sit and stare at the screen for 5 minutes), he didn’t even notice that there were several wedding parties with uneven numbers.

Fooled him big time and he stopped bugging me. We have 5 girls and 7 guys. There’s a big contest going on right now among the GM’s about who’s going to get 2 girls on their arm.

I don’t think it’s any big deal. We’re going to have an extra groomsman cause one of my best friends is a guy… I think it bothers Mr. KM a little bit cause its uneven but he’s dealing with it fine. He doesn’t see the need for the bridal party at all!

Definitely not a big deal! We may be uneven too (me with two BMs and him with one GM) and I think it’s fine! You don’t want to ask someone you’re not close to just for the sake of an even wedding party!

We’re uneven. 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 1 Groomsmen.

We’re even MORE uneven.  8 BMs and 4 GMen.  Some people can’t deal with the lack of symmetry, but its more important to us to have the people who mean a lot to us up there than for the pictures to be perfectly balanced.  None of the groomsmen are complaining about walking out with a lady on each arm, rather than just one!

We will probably end up uneven too..one of my bridesmaids just announced to me she is pregnant and do within 3 days of my wedding so I’m not counting on her being there!
