i had 3 BMs and DH had a best man, all our attendants were seated during our ceremony and it didnt look weird at all. i actually prefer how it looks to have ONLY the bride & groom up front. the day before my wedding, there was another one and i watched it from my balcony. this chick had, no joke, like 9 BMs and 8 GMs - and the only reason it looked stupid was because the altar area looked so freakin crowded!

    I would have your MOH walk down by herself and then the rest of the girls walk with the guys...that way you are making the made of honor stand out more...DONT WORRY! No matter what you decide it will look good so far for us we are having 7-8 girls on my side and 6 on his..OH WELL!

      I don't think an uneven number will look weird at all! I wouldn't ask any of your BM's to step down..
      It'll be fine! :)

        that won't look weird at all! You can have your MOH walk alone (as someone else said) or have 2 girls walk down with on groomsman.

        I know a girl who has 9 bridesmaids and her FH has 4 or 5 groomsmen. Wonder what she's going to do!

          It won't look weird... maybe MOH can lead the bunch or have a different bouquet/dress or something... it's your day, you want your important people to be in it!!!

            This is nothing to worry about. A lot of brides on here have uneven numbers. I am having 2 BM's and he is having one GM. No biggie. One guy can walk with two girls back down the aisle.

              I don't think that this will be weird. I have seen many weddings at home that have an uneven number of attendants. This is also the beauty of having a destination wedding-anything goes! When there is an uneven number of attendants, you could have one groomsman escort 2 bridesmaids down the aisle or have the groomsmen standing along with groom as the bridesmaids and you enter. I think the most important thing is that you have people who are truely special to both of you representing you on your wedding.

                I have two BMs and no GMs. Well, the BMs are actually walking me down the aisle :)

                  Don't worry about this at all, it will not look weird. I have an MOH and a Bridesmaid and FH is alone. He had to ask his Bestman and groomsman (both our brothers) not to come. What a mess! But FH says he will stand up for himself like he always has. Ha! Good way to handle it.

                  Moral of my story: don't worry about numbers, have too's and traditions. Have who you really truly want and that's it, whatever the numbers!

                    We have 4 BMs and probably 2 GM (assuming they all book that is). We're probably just going to have the MOH and Best Man stand up with us and have the others sit so that it's not too crowded and doesn't look awkward.

                    We also plan on having as many flower girls and ring bearers as possible - all will just walk down the aisle at once (no matter how chaotic it is - I think this will break the tension and cause some laughs ). I love kids and think it will be really cute

                    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

                    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
