    2 months to the PV wedding and one of my bridesmaids have backed out.

    BM dress is bought my me.......... size 2

    Groom has 3 GM's I now have 2 BM's.

    Do I ask another friend or just go with 2 girls?

      I was asked to be a late BM and joyfully accepted...NEVER AGAIN! There was resentment from the other BM. I would roll with 2 BM and let the non-MOH have two cute guys! she will love the attention... make it fun!

        Sell the dress online and just have 2. Now you know who really stands up for you. And be grateful that everyone else has held your hand and heart throughout your wonderful day.

          Agreed. I think you should keep your 2 rather than just have a 'filler'. It's very likely there would be hurt feelings or resentment from someone if you did that!


          Having an uneven bridal party isn't a big deal; it's more about having the ones nearest and dearest stand by your side. Good luck!

            Thanks so much for the quick replies.

            Great idea about allowing the 1 BM walk down the isle with 2 GMs.

            Think I will use that one!!

              I have the same situation, except mine hasn't offically bailed yet, but she's living in Australia and although she said she'd be there she hasn't made a single effort thus far... I know she won't be there. It really sucks... but we're totally have 2-3...

                I am in a similar situation she hasnt booked yet, but still insists shes coming...my thoughts were to keep the same people, not add anyone new but have the guys already standing at the altar and just have the girls walk down the aisle, then no one has to walk alone or be awkward.  The other option would be to have the maid of honor walk alone and the rest with a partner.

                  I was in a wedding last year where there was an extra groomsman (the groom had an honorary spot in memory of his deceased brother so there was 4 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen) and the groomsmen started out at the altar and on the way back down the aisle and for pictures, the best man and matron of honor were together, and one bridesmaid and groomsman were together, and the third groomsman had the other 2 bridesmaids on each arm. It was cute and he looked like a ladies man! What guy wouldn't like to have a pretty girl on each arm???

                      I would just do 2.  We were going to have 5 and 5 on each side, but 2 groomsman can't come now so we will have 3 and 5.  I wouldn't be too worried about it.
