I love the look of uneven bridal parties. My FI? Eh not so much. He wants it even. He has a bunch of friends. Me? Eh not so much. And Im totally fine with that. I rather have one dollar vs. a hundred pennies. So on his side is his brother as the best man and his best friend. I have my best friend who is like my sister as the Maid/Matron of Honor. I rather keep our bridal party limited to our best friends like how it is now. I love uneven bridal parties. I adds personality and quartkiness. I am the artsy one that likes to mix things in striking ways. He is more how should I say it nicely… bland? lol and he knows it. Opposites attract I suppose. I do have another friend from high school but dont want to add her. We are not as close as we used to be. I havent spoken to her in years. Opinions please! Even or Uneven?

I wouldn’t add people just to even it out, if you don’t really want them in the wedding party. I’m a little OCD so I would have to have it even on both sides, but if that doesn’t bother you, just keep it like it is! 🙂

If you have any men in your life (brothers, cousins, male friends), you could add them if you’re REALLY set on even parties (though if you pitch that to the Mr. as an alternative, he may decide he doesn’t mind an uneven party so much). My bridal party consists of two guys, and his consists of one woman. We’re going opposite AND uneven.
I think uneven is fine, though. Definitely don’t ask people who aren’t as close to you just for aesthetic reasons.

I wouldn’t make it even, because you will look back at your pictures, and not really want some of the people that were put in there “for a filler”, in your photos. You want to be surrounded by the people that mean the most to you. But I do like the idea of adding in extra male family members that you are close to. I can understand about the whole idea of it not being even, especially from an OCD queen like me, haha. Everything has to have its perfect place.
Like just now.. I look up from the computer screen, and I am seeing the broom that I forgot to put back after my boyfriend had teasingly put my shoe between two of the ceiling panels this afternoon. Had to knock it down to get it back to me. Silly man.. he is always playing pranks on me. He might get his towel stolen tonight when he showers! XD
Anyway, it shouldn’t matter too much, as long as you are happy with it!
