I know it’s a slow time on the Bee right now, but some of you are still up!
Just a simple question – was your wedding party even? Did you even have one? Just wondering!
Mine was not even – we had 3 girls and 2 guys. I think this horrified my mother for a short while but I wanted all 3 girls and he only has 2 close friends. We weren’t about to just ask another guy just to be filler – we wanted only our dearest friends up there with us. He’d considered asking one of my brothers, but that’s the thing, I have 2 brothers. It would have been hurtful to leave one of them out (and I love his sister, but she lives across the country and wasn’t one of my BMs).
Anyway, it all worked out! What did you have/will be having?
*Note: Bridesmen or “best women” count toward whatever side they were standing on, it doesn’t matter what gender they were/are! Also, let’s count junior BMs but not flower girls or ring bearers.

Eeek them I’m really uneven! I have Maid/Matron of Honor + 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man + 1 JBM. Fiance has his Bridesmaid or Best Man + 5 Groomsmen
The Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man will walk down by herself I suppose? (havent decided that yet!) and two of the BMs will walk down with one guy.

I am having a Maid/Matron of Honor, 2 bridesmaids, and a jr bridemaid, he is having a best man, 1 groomsman and a jr grooms man, but our son ( from my first mariage age 10 ) is giving me away so he will stand on Fiance side. I have all the girls walking down alone….lol I hope it works out 🙂

It was uneven with 4 gm and 3 bridesmaids then the week before the wedding my cousin decided to be a bridesmaid found a similar dress and we each had 4! Very last minute but I was so happy!

We had 4 groomsmen and 2 bridesmaids. I’m pretty OCD, but it worked out just fine. I’m not for fillers either. It’s too important of a day.

we are having 6 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen.
What did you all do as far as walking down the aisle? Did you have girls walk on their own, or did some of the groomsmen double up?

Bump for the daytime crowd!

I have one less than the groom. I have 5 on my side, he has 6. No fillers for me!

Darling Husband had eight groomsmen and I had four bridesmaids. It’s kind of ridiculous, I could only come up with seven names of people I was remotely interested in having in the bridal party, so I just picked the four people that I’m closest to. No regrets here!

We had 4 bridesmaids and 2 groomsmen, plus two ushers. We were pretty uneven, but everything looked really nice and none of it felt forced.

We have 5 on each side. I’m a perfectionist and it would bug me to have it uneven!
