    Does anyone else have an uneven Bridal party? Once I was proposed to I imediately knew who I wanted next to me (my sister and two BFF's) but FI has asked only one and is not sure if he wants to ask anyone else. I understand it gets into, if you ask him you should ask so and so... and then we have too many on his side. I don't care but wondered if anyone else did something similar?
    If we do keep the sides uneven I think I will have the entire Bridal party stand to one side, at the ceremony, instead of splitting them up and be very obvious.
    Like our first kiss all over again

        I've also seen the men at the front with the groom & the girls walk in together. It looks so natural. The groom has his friend with him for support & the girls have each other. I think it was a video someone put up recently. There were 2 or 3 girls walking in side by side maybe with their arms linked.

        As a BM, I've always found it to be a little awkward walking in with a grooms man I barely know.

          We had 6 BMs and 3 GMs, flowergirl and ring bearer.
          Each GM walked down two BMs.
          All my BMs were important to me, so I would not even think of cutting any of them out.
          I think it worked out fine.

              Let the girls shine on their own walking down the aisle We are having an uneven bridal party as well - 5 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen. All of the groomsmen are walking in together and the ladies are walking in w/o an escort. I have been to a few weddings where this is the case and I have to say it has worked out better (and less crowded in the aisle) than having the groomsmen walk down more than one girl at a time.

                We have 6 GM's and 3 BM's, 2 FG's and 1 ringbearer. So I am all about taking the situation individually and doing what is right for you as a couple. I don't think you should ask people to be part of your wedding party as "filler"s. Good luck!

                  Nikki... That's a great idea to have them all walk down on their own. I also have 5 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen and I have been trying to figure out how they would walk down, and I think this is perfect :)

                      I totally agree. Uneven is so much better than fillers.
