    We had 4 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 3 Groomsmen.  Two of my girls walked down with one of the guys and the same for the dancing at the reception.  It all worked out just fine.

    Why would you consider “cutting” someone, hurting their feelings, perhaps damaging a friendship/relationship because you’re worried about uneven sides? Perspective in that you will want your relationships wth people intact once the wedding is over.

    Uneven sides are fine, two girls can walk down with one man, one on either side of his arm. I don’t know about this dance business, but if your bridal party are bringing dates why can’t they just dance with their dates or whoever they choose?

    Don’t cut one of your bridesmaids!!! That’s horrible! Add a groomsman if you absolutely must be even.

    Two girls walk down the aisle with one guy. If you are doing a bridal party dance, have one of your bridesmaids dance with her boyfriend/husband/FI/male family member.

    I’m in the same situation sort of.  I’m having 5 bridesmaids and my fiancee is going to have 4 groomsmen.  I’m having our basset hound wear a doggie tux and the “odd one out” of my bridesmaids will walk him down the aisle!  I was going to have our dog in the ceremony anyway, so it just kinda seemed to fit.  But I’ve seen a bridesmaid walk down by herself and also two bridesmaids walk with one groomsman. As for the dancing bit… I think it will be fine.  The weddings I’ve been to, the bridesmaids and groomsmen are sometimes married to other ladies or in a relationship with someone else thats not even in the wedding party; so they wouldn’t be dancing with the bridesmaids anyway.  Plus people just end up dancing with everyone ya know?  I don’t know, that’s my take on it anyway.

    Ours was uneven!  It was no big deal at all!  I had 8 and Darling Husband had 5.  I had 2 MOHs and the Bridesmaid or Best Man walked them both out.  PEOPLE were more important to us than balance!

    @soontobehisbride:  Definitely see if he can add someone! It makes more sense now that you’ve mentioned you haven’t asked anyone yet.. I thought you were planning on “firing” someone and I think it’s so wrong when brides do that. However, I also think you should consider that you want to have your closest and most important friends and family up there with you and you really shouldn’t try and sacrifice someone just because of uneven sides.
