    So, I currently have 6 bridesmaids and 5 groomsman in the wedding party. I would like to ask another friend to be in the wedding. 1 of my bridesmaids is actually a Jr. Bridesmaid (shes only 14). Do you think that it is bad to ask her because the numbers will be off by 1-2ish and do you think that it is bad because its 6 months till the wedding and others have already known for months?

    I guess I also feel bad because I got a lil tipsy and said something to the effect of I wish that you would be in my wedding, and she said that if you need someone else let me know.

    Why did I drink so much at the engagement party...ha ha ha.

      Hi there,
      If you are worried about there being an odd number of bridesmaids to groomsmen then I personally don't think that is an issue and I'm sure your friend (the additional bridesmaid) would be honored that you are asking her even if it is a later decision. I hope I have understood what it is you are asking LOL

      I agree with Jodey - don't worry about the odd numbers. It's your wedding, ask those who are most important to be a part of it. Its just that simple.

        Don't worry about the odd numbers. However, if you do ask your friend I would maybe say something like you kept having this feeling that something was missing and you realized that it was her! My sister was asked to be a BM many months after the bridal party was set and she said she was always very aware of that and felt a little strange. She of course was still very honored to be included!

        BTW, I totally understand about drinking and inviting everyone and their brother,literally to our DW! I have hurt some feelings I think because I didn't invite some people I told "You totally have to be there - we would have a blast!" in a haze of dirty martinis.

          We initially had 5 BM and 4 GM ... but one BM backed out, which evened things out ... but I wans't worried about it being uneven anyway. I was just going to have 1 GM walk back with a BM on each side. No worries.

            We had three girls and 4 guys.. my mom had a mini fit about it but we didn't care.. I wasn't going to ask someone that I didn't really love just to make the numbers even.. It's up to you.

                I (now) have 2 Bridesmaids and 3 Groomsmen...and I wouldnt have it any other way!!

                Fiance gave me such a hard time about keeping numbers even for the pictures and adding a girl (he ran out of names lol), but who really cares about numbers when you have the closest, most supportive people next to you on that very special day!
