Bottom line, minus the drama? I now have 5 bridesmaids, including 1 Maid/Matron of Honor. My fiance has 2 groomsmen, including 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man. How in the heck do I have people walk down the aisle?!?!
I’m against the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man walking with anyone but each other, because we did not choose different attire to differentiate their positions. So I’d really like them to walk in together. Otherwise I’m at a loss! Do I just have everyone else walk down unescorted?
I know a lot of people say uneven numbers don’t matter… and if we had lost ONE groomsman I wouldn’t care. But we’ve lost THREE and that seems a bit ridiculous. Help!

Can you have them walk unescorted?

Here is how we will will probably deal with this… GMs will be standing with Fiance from the beginning. The BMs will walk in alone, and then Maid/Matron of Honor will walk in right before the Flower Girl and myself.
In your case, the BMs could pair off and walk in 2 at a time and Maid/Matron of Honor by herself…or, do: 2 BMs together, 2 BMs with 1 Groomsmen, then Maid/Matron of Honor & Best Man?
It’ll work out. No one will notice really. Our numbers are 3 girls on my side and 4 on his, but I didn’t ask a 4th.

I did the same as @AmeliaBedelia: We chose to have our gm’s already standing up at the front of the church with my hubby and the officiant, and the bridesmaids/moh walked in unescorted with the flower girl going last right before me.

My sister had her groomsmen already standing up front with the hubby and officiant as well. Then all of us bridesmaids walked by ourselves. Worked well!

I agree with @AmeliaBedelia:. This is how most of the weddings I’ve attended have been. Groomsmen with Fiance at front and BM/MOH walk in alone before the bride.
