Our wedding is family only, so I'm stuck as to how to balance it out. I want to be able to ask all three sisters to be my bridesmaids, but I don't want his sister to feel left out if he refuses to include her, and I can't very well have 4 attendants to his 1. I think I'll have to work to convince him that a female groomsman is okay...

I need some advice.
We had an uneven ratio, 4 BMs to 5 GM and it looked fine. Granted it's only one off but we just did some creative processional/recessional work and it turned out being different and really touching for the guests(best man stood with officiant, DH escorted his Gram with whom he is very close to her seat). It was a little difficult to figure out the logistics but in the end it's up to you, these are the people that mean the most to you, you shouldn't feel like you have to add random people just to make things even. Plus a lot of guys are really touchy about being told who they should have as GM.

Either way, that really sucks that he has no one. But I guess you guys can just be surrounded by your BM's in the pictures, right? I mean, no one said that they always have to be standing on just your side?
