Help! More bridesmaids than groomsmen

Recommended Posts

Do whatever makes you happy. Who cares if the numbers are even? I really like that Yael had her party sit instead of stand. I'm way out of the norm as we only asked our family to be in the bridal party because we didn't want to put that burden or pressure on our friends if they wouldn't be able to make it. That means my 2 brothers are my honor attendants and FIs brother is his BM. It makes me happy :o)

No, it won't look odd! You can have the 2 bridesmaids walk down together, or just each walk down alone, once they get up to the altar nobody will be looking at them anyway, they will be looking at you! I have 9 bridesmaids now and my FI will have at most 5 GM and we will make it work. I was trying to cut down but in the end it doesn't really matter and it is hard to leave people out when you want them.

Thanks everyone! I am so happy I posted this! This is awesome to get so much feedback! It makes me feel silly for stressing out over this for the past few months. I actually ended up asking the 2 bridesmaids today and know that I made a good decision. They were both thrilled! We'll deal with the groomsmen later. Girls are way more into it anyway, so the guys can be somewhat last minute.

Awesome! I'm so glad that it worked out for you and that you're not stressed anymore. Don't feel silly about being worried about it, I think getting stressed about the odd thing is perfectly normal. Your wedding is such a big deal that all of the details seem to take on so much more importance, you know?

I'm in the same situation and thanks to the lovely ladies here on BDW, my extra groomsman (who happens to be my brother) will be walking my mother down. I'm not worried about pictures or anything looking funny. After all, I was an art student and I know that designs look better in odd numbers! We'll make it work!

I feel so much better after reading this thread, I've been nagging at the FI to go the same amout in the bridal party. I have 2 BM and a MOH all three of which are coming. The Fi's friends we aren't sure so far he has 1 gm (which is the MOH bf) Now I don't care if he just has 1 and I have 3 girls. After all.. it is a DW!!!

Thanks for the thread!!!

I already asked my maid of honor, matron of honor and bridemaid. My fiance hasn't even figured out who he wants to ask. To me, as long as the people I want to be in the party are in it, it doesn't matter if its even. My brother and his wife actually had at their wedding 4 bridemaids and 1 MOH and 1 bestman and 14 or so groomsmen. He couldn't decide who he could leave out and decided not to leave anyone out.
