    I've seen tons of uneven bridal parties and it looks totally fine. I actually like it for diversity!

      I think it's definitely ok to have an uneven wedding party. You want your best friends and family members there... and definitely don't want to just pick random people to even things up! Our wedding will be uneven - 3 groomsmen and 4 bridesmaids. And, I think MissyR's idea of having two guys escort every girl in your case, is fantastic!

        We are uneven too. It's very common.

        I've got 2 BM and one MOH and he's just got his best man. :)

          We have an uneven wedding party too. He is having 4 groomsmen and I am having a MOH and 2 bridesmaids. I think especially for destination weddings this is very common.

            Thanks for the advice ladies! I just didn't want it to look crazy in photos and such.

              I have photographed several weddings where there were different numbers of bridesmaids and groomsmen and it looked just fine for the photos.

                We're going back and forth right now between just having a BM and MOH, or 3 groomsman and 2 bridesmaids. With the 3 and 2, we figure the BM and MOH can walk together, and the 2 other groomsman can walk with the other bridesmaid.

                  I definitely think you will be ok even for photos. You can have each girl walk with a guy on each side. It it way more common to have uneven bridal party members. The only time you will see it is with your whole bridal party photo and even then it won't be an issue. :)

                    i think it would work out perfectly! Don't worry about how it looks, but who you really want to be there by your side.
