Help! More bridesmaids than groomsmen
Posted 22 September 2009 - 09:36 PM
I have a MOH and my FI thinks he has a BM. However, I have 2 more friends that I would like to be my bridesmaids. I have told them that I am waiting to find out if we will have any groomsmen and that I should know by Dec. But it is killing me that I can't tell them now. At this point, I don't know if we will have any more groomsmen. My FI's friends are flakey and they think a destination wedding is a little expensive. So they aren't exactly jumping at the chance to go. It's actually quite sad. But regardless, I have my friends who are so excited for me and who would love to be in my wedding and I would love to have them.
My question is, do you think it will look odd, to have 1 MOH, 1 Best Man, and 2 Bridesmaids (1 flower girl and 1 ring bearer too)? And if I did have it this way, how should I arrange the ceremony?

What about just having two girls walk together- that way you can still pair off the MOH and BM and you'll have even numbers?
Ultimately just go with your gut- it sounds like you want your friends to stand up with you and if that's the case then go with it and everything else will fall into place.

I think you should do whatever makes you happy and I agree with Melidell-go with your gut!

I'm sure she'd be happy to let you know how she worked that out! I'm most likely going to have a very un-even number too. Don't sweat it! Everything about our DW is pretty unconventional, why not this too?!!

It sounds like there are a few of us going a more unconventional route anyways. If you can believe it, I'm not even having my dad walk me down the aisle even though he's attending the wedding! He gets really uncomfortable in front of groups so I figure why put him in that situation?! This is supposed to be a RELAXED event for everyone involved so as long as he's there to give me a big hug and hand me over (ha!) then I'm totally fine with that.

Personally I think it shouldnt matter if its an even bridal party or not - just that you have the ppl you love and want be in your party
