I’m seriously freaking out over here. I have five bridesmaids (all who are my closest friends and I don’t want to cut anyone and we’ve already purchased the dresses) and my fiance only has two groomsmen. When I told him I was going to ask all the girls, he told me that it was fine. But today, he told me that he decided to have two groomsmen because he doesn’t have any other close friends and he doesn’t want to have fillers.
So now I’m worried that my bridal party will look very “off”. I’ve been thinking about the lineup for the ceremony and I’ve come with this list:
bridesmaids and groomsmen
Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man.
And for the reception grand entrance:
So what do you fellow bee’s think? Will the ceremony and reception look off??

Not at all! Your wedding will be unique and that in itself will make it yours.
I at one time had 7 bridesmaid and my Love didn’t even have a best man. He still doesn’t.

I’m in the opposite direction: I could have had 4 bridesmaids, or 12 (once I stepped out of the group of 4, it would have been impossible to pick any friends over the others). I opted for 4. Fiance invited 10! It’s unlikely they’ll all be able to come (most are traveling from the UK), but still. We are probably going to be mismatched. Who cares! Honest, no one will mind one bit 🙂

For the ceremony the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man do not need to have anyone walk them down the aisle. Every wedding I have been to has always had the groom and his Groomsmen walk to the alter from the side so they are just waiting as the BM’s walk down the aisle. You could go this route if you don’t want it to look funny. I would also announce them individually.

No way is this weird! Real life isn’t symmetrical, and you and your fiance’s wedding attendants don’t need to be, either. It’s nice that you’re only having your closest friends stand with you! Most weddings I go to nowadays have uneven numbers and no one even notices.
