So my fiance and I had decided on four people on each side – I had 4 BM’s and he has 4 Groomsmen. But just recently I had a talk with one of my BM’s and we both decided it would be less stress on us both if she stepped down (see, she and I are good friends, but our weddings only a week apart, and I was supposed to be her MOH!), and I stepped down as Maid/Matron of Honor of her wedding, out of courtesy. I just don’t think we needed even more stress, you know? But we’re still going to each other’s weddings..
ANYWAY. Now I have three and he has four. He can’t really cut his side because two GM’s are his brothers, one is my brother and the last is his best friend. (Same with my side, my sister, his sister and my best friend)…
What do you think?

Maybe you can ask a sweet associate of yours. I needed a 5th bridesmaid so I asked an old college friend of mine that I hadn’t hung out with in awhile. She was always so sweet and a joy to be around. I told her that she doesn’t have to do much, just attend the events and if she needed help paying for her dress I would be glad to help. She agreed. 🙂

I wouldn’t worry about it. We have uneven numbers as well.

We’ve had uneven parties from the beginning. I have 5, he has 3. We’re simply letting two of the guys feel super cool and escort two of the bridesmaids back down the aisle.

Ditto SaraFoxy0328. We don’t really see it as a big deal at all.

I don’t think uneven bridal parties are a big deal, especially since there is only a one person difference. We have 4 groomsmen and 3 bridesmaids.

Keep it as it is. I had 3, he had 2 and we did what SaraFoxy0328 suggested.

TWO groomsmen walk with ONE bridesmaid – it’s done all the time! GO for it:-)

We have 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen. However, I also have 2 maids of honor. So they would walk with the best man and my sister and niece (JR bridesmaid) will walk out with my brother. So it sort of balanced out.

I have 5 bridesmaids and my Fiance has 14 groomsman. Yeah…I know right? Lol. I don’t think it’s a big deal. In my situation though, I think people will laugh.

I have 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man and he has 5 Groomsmen. I am planning on having 2 of the girls be escorted by 2 Groomsmen walking back down the aisle. I’m just not sure how to handle the bridal party dance… suggestions?

I have 4 BM’s and my Fiance has 3 GM’s…He had 4 but there was a major issue with one so now he’s out of the wedding. I’ve been to more weddings in the past few years with uneven numbers.

I think it’s fine. Plus, anyone you ask now will probably know they were more of an after thought.

We have uneven numbers too and decided to leave it that way rather than exlude anyone important or add someone just to make it even.
