I previously posted regarding choosing my bridesmaids/MOH and I think that I have it narrowed down, but herein lies another issue. Which do you think is better – asking a friend I don’t see very often (but who is the girlfriend of one of the groomsmen) to be a bridesmaid, or having an uneven bridal party? Also, do you think it looks ‘sparse’ to have only 2 groomsmen and a Best Man and 2 bridesmaids and a MOH? This is what it would be if I didn’t invite that friend to be a bm. Just curious.

1) Uneven party all the way. Being in someone’s wedding who you aren’t that close to (especially when it is a small wedding party) is extremely awkward.
2) We are having a six person wedding party. Three on each side. Not sparse at all. Intimate.

I think it would be fine with what you have. I only have a Maid/Matron of Honor and my FH only has a Bridesmaid or Best Man. It is totally up to you and what you want. Don’t ask someone just for the numbers.

Ah, ok good thoughts. My friend’s wedding I was in recently had… 5 or 6 bridesmaids and a Maid/Matron of Honor (which in my opinion was too many but to each her own). I just didn’t want it to be on the other end of that spectrum and be too few (plus, I mean she is my friend and a groomsman’s gf).

Definitely stick with what you have – you want the girls standing up there with you to be the people you’re closest to! We are going to have an uneven bridal party AND a tiny bridal party, haha! Fiance is having 2 groomsmen and a best man, and I will have 1 Maid/Matron of Honor and 1 bridesmaid (plus a jr. bridesmaid)
