        I think you can really have some fun with this. When your girls walk down, do they HAVE to stand behind you?? How about this... picture the groom standing at the end of the aisle waiting for you. Your BM walks down, gives the groom a hug and kiss on the cheek (a sign of acceptance) and then moves over to "your" side of the front. The next girl walks down and gives the groom a hug & cheek kiss then goes to his side of the front. Your MOH walks down and gives the groom a hug & cheek kiss than goes to stand beside the other BM on your side. This way you have your MOH beside you and each BM on either side of you & your groom.

        Of course, this is only one idea, overall my suggestion is to have fun & be creative. Your guests won't be expecting it and may find it rather interesting because it will be different from other weddings they have been to. Have a DW really gives you the freedom to make the wedding yours without expectations of past traditions.

        I wish you all the best!!

          I am in the same boat. I have a MOH and 3 BM and my FI has a BM. We figured that the girl's will just walk down the isle alone and have the BM & Groom already at the Alter.

            Destination Wedding = Anything Goes! Tradition flies out the window for a DW, so don't bother batthing an eyelash for a lop-sided wedding party cause it's your day and you get to do whatever you want!

              I love the idea of the BM's standing at the sides of you AND the groom. It won't look odd at all.

                I agree with thomasjsgirls - tradition goes out the door with destination weddings. We do not have any grooms men or best man. I have 2 daughters and FI has 1 so our 3 young ladies (who are 21, 20, and 17) will walk down the aisle alone. My two daughters will go on my side and his daughter on his side and that's it! I wouldn't worry too much about this, most people will be too interested in the bride and groom, instead of counting how many BM and GM are on each side.

                  Your Fi could wait at the end of the alter and each girl could walk down the aisle alone followed by you.

                    I wouldn't stress too much about this at all. I like the idea of your girls standing on both sides of you and the groom, but if that bothers you why not have them sit down after they go down the aisle? In fact, lot of DWs have no attendants at all, so I don't think it would seem that awkward.

                    But anyway, uneven numbers of attendants is becoming very hip these days. Everyone is getting sick of the whole "matchy matchy" aspect of weddings. Another way to make it seem a little less awkward would be to have your bridesmaids wear different shades of dresses in your color palette so that you have a less heavy feel if they're all standing to one side of you. I'm including a couple of pics of what I mean.

                      I wouldn't be too worried the ladie are right with a DW anything goes. In fact the one rule of a DW should be anything goes. Mix it up, spice it up do whatever you like. It'll only add to the uniqueness of the event.
