    My numbers aren't even either. I have 2 BM and 3 GM and our littlest best man...my bonus son. I'm not going to worry about it.....I'm just happy to have all of them standing up there with us and supporting us.

      I'm not worrying about it either, I have 7 BM's and FI has 9 GM. I think it will still look ok! ( I think it is insane that we are having that many but oh well) So don't stress about it!

        We have 6 and 6 . . . it may end up uneven if some of them don't get their passports together! It doesn't have to be symmetrical, as long as the people up there have meaning in your life that's all that matters.

          The beauty of a dw is that there are no rules. Have whoever you want. I'm having 2 bm and fi is having none bc he can't choose bw friends.

            No rules exactly... just have fun... i went to one wedding where there were 4 bridesmaids and and two groomsmen, actually only one groomsman, because the Best Man was the groom's sister...

              I REALLY can't decide on this one and could use some advice. Originally, we were going to try to have an at-home wedding, and I had asked 6 of my friends to be bridesmaids - 2 high school friends; 2 college friends; my sister and his sister. Well now that plans have changed and it's a DW, I'm thinking simpler would be better and I think I just want my sister and his sister. BUT I think it's too late to un-invite the other BMs (1 in particular is SUPER excited about it). What do you think

                Heidi, that's a tough one! While it's your wedding and you deserve to have it exactly as you picture, you've already asked the other four. Is there any chance that some of them won't go because it's a DW? Honestly, I think if you "unask" them, you risk losing friendships.

                  I'm having 2 and he's having four. In the last couple years I have realized who my true friends are and I don't want to ask distant friends only to fill up space. I will have two guys each per girl. I think it will look cute!
