Mine was uneven by 7 groomsmen and 5 bridesmaids. It worked out just fine!

You should only ask people you want to have there. Its about love and support, not numbers.

No biggy- you just have two women walk down with a man, twice.

I did it at my wedding as well as the wedding I was in. 

Your photographer will know how to photograph you in your formals so it looks good.

Ours was uneven – 3 girls and 2 guys.  I started a poll the other day about it and I was surprised at how many people had uneven wedding parties – more people voted for uneven than even!

Was your wedding party even?

We’ve got 4 ladies and 3 dudes.  Probably going to have the best man walk the MOH and one other lady and then the others march in pairs.

My best friend’s wedding was one of the more unevenI have seen adn been in. 

She had 6 in the bridal party – 1 MOH and 5 bridesmaids. 

The groom only had a best man and 1 usher.  – 6 on one side, 2 on the other. 

 

He basically had the men wait up from with him, and the bridesmaids walked down the aisle before the bride One by One.

Leave it uneven. No one will even notice. A token invite for the sake of numbers is silly.

I’ve been a bridesmaid twice, and both times there were uneven wedding parties. Because there were more BMs than GMs, they just had one or two of the guys escort a BM on each arm back up the aisle. It was no big deal at all – the pictures turned out great, and we used the rehearsal to work out where to stand so that the ceremony looked balanced and beautiful.
